D'Angelo Russell, No. 2, paces seven Big Ten players on mock draft

DraftExpress.com lists seven Big Ten players on its latest mock draft, including five first-rounders. [ MORE: Power Rankings | Player Rankings | National polls ] To the surprise of no one, Ohio State freshman D’Angelo Russell, the two-time reigning Big Ten Player of the Week, paces the conference, coming in at No. 2, behind only Duke’s Jahlil Okafor. If Russell went No. 2, he would be the Big Ten’s third player to go with the second pick in the last six seasons (Ohio State’s Evan Turner, 2010; Indiana’s Victor Oladipo, 2013). As for the other Big Ten players in the

Fran McCaffery reacts, Michigan State FT woes & more in Tuesday's links

This eye-poking by Iowa’s Adam Woodbury is some of the most bizarre stuff I ever have seen in all my years covering and watching basketball. And Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery is front-and-center in the imbroglio. McCaffery gained national attention with his terse handling of a postgame question over the weekend about Woodbury’s third eye-poking incident in five games. Fran felt the reporter’s query wasn’t “intelligent.” Why was Fran so peeved at a perfectly fair question that WAS intelligent? (Again, three eye incidents in five games. Is it THAT crazy to ask the coach ‘what’s up’?) Rick Brown of Hawkcentral.com reached

Illinois at Michigan State

Bracketology: Improving Illinois enters experts' latest mock brackets

Time to take the temperature of the Big Ten’s NCAA tourney hopes. And, a couple of interesting developments have taken place this week. Illinois has made it into the brackets of Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com and Joe Lunardi of ESPN.com. Each has the Fighting Illini in a first-round (play-in) game as a No. 12 seed. The other big development: Palm does not have Michigan State in his bracket. He has the Spartans among his “First Four Out.” Lunardi has MSU as a No. 9 seed. It’s also worth noting that Purdue is among Lunardi’s “Last Four Out.” Palm has no

Illinois, Northwestern to play at Soldier Field in 2015, 2017 & 2019

The Illinois football team is set to return to historic Soldier Field for a three-game series vs. rival Northwestern beginning in 2015, Director of Athletics Mike Thomas announced Monday. Illinois will play Northwestern at Soldier Field on Nov. 28, 2015, in a game originally scheduled for Memorial Stadium in Champaign. The two teams will also play at Soldier Field in 2017 and 2019.
