The BTN bus tour continues to make its way across the Big Ten landscape, stopping in Madison on Monday. You can follow all of our tour coverage here and don’t forget about the TV schedule. To no surprise, much of the tour material finds its way on our top 10 stories from the past week. See the entire top 10 list in this post. 10. DiNardo: Nebraska football practice tweets On Thursday, the BTN bus tour hit Lincoln, Neb. There, our guys took in practice and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

Did You See This? Illinois' Tim Beckman takes ice bath

It was a hard days work for Illinois football coach Tim Beckman on Friday. Or perhaps, he really felt like bonding with standout linebacker Jonathan Brown. Either way, the first-year head coach capped Friday’s practice with a plunge in the ice bath. No joke. And from the picture @IllinoisFootball tweeted, it sure seemed as though Beckman enjoyed the cold temperatures. See the photo in this post. Illinois fans have to like this side of Beckman. It’s always nice to see coaches interacting and having fun with their players off the field. This definitely falls under that category. My question: Which

Big Ten Web Links: Get Friday's top clicks

Last night, we watched the Huskers practice on the second stop of our BTN bus tour. Up next, it’s Minnesota on Saturday. You can watch the Nebraska Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET tonight. Until then, check out these quality Big Ten web links. TIME TO SNAP THE SKID: Straight from the “can you believe this” category: Minnesota hasn’t had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2006. And JC transfer running back James Gillum wants to end that dubious skein. Gillum showed he could carry a big load in the JC ranks, running for over 1,000 yards in each of his two

Clothes Call: Ranking Big Ten football helmets

When Tom Dienhart wrote that Penn State should put blue ribbon stickers on both sides of its helmet, it got my attention. No helmet, it seems, is as sacred as Penn State’s  – not even Michigan’s. After all, the Wolverines are coming off a season in which they added numbers to their lids and put gray facemasks in the rotation, both nods to the past. It’s back to the usual look in 2012. The last time Penn State made a significant change to its helmet: 1987, when it went from gray to blue facemasks. That’s a commitment to one look.

Big Ten web links: Wednesday's top clicks

I’m in Iowa City today to take in Iowa’s practice. It’s the first stop on our annual summer bus tour, and I’m excited to watch the team’s running backs, among other things. Enough about me, it’s time to bring you all of Wednesday’s top Big Ten web links. VETERAN HUSKERS: If experience matters, Nebraska is in good shape for the 2012 season. According to Steve Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star, the Cornhuskers have 29 seniors and 26 juniors on the roster. And among that massive senior class are 22 fifth-year seniors. No doubt, that veteran leadership will go a

Clothes Call: Big Ten summer practice edition

When this photo surfaced earlier this summer, I couldn’t help but take a look around Big Ten football camps to see if there was anything similar. I did find this in Iowa City and later this in Ann Arbor, but they’re not nearly as old-school. So, unfortunately, there’s nothing as epic as Auburn’s new practice bottoms. I did notice a few changes from last season, though, and you can see all of them in this post. ILLINOIS I’ve yet to find visual proof of it, but in Tim Beckman’s first camp, Illinois players who are rehabbing don purple jerseys, according

Illinois to play Washington in 2013 at Soldier Field

For the first time since 1994, the Illinois football team will play a game at Soldier Field. The school announced Tuesday that it will play Washington on Sept. 14, 2013, at the historic home of the Chicago Bears. [FightingIllini.com: Illini to play at Soldier Field in 2013] “This is a great opportunity for our football team to play in one of the most historic football venues in the nation,” Illinois Director of Athletics Mike Thomas said. “Soldier Field is in an incredible location that will allow our fans in the Chicagoland area and from around the state an opportunity to

There may not be a player I am more excited to watch this season than the Spartan defensive end. HUNGRY SPARTANS: Yes, Michigan State has won 11 games in each of the previous two seasons. But the Spartans

How does "B1G" patch look on your team's jersey? Here you go

With the first Big Ten football game still three-plus weeks away, I’m looking for any excuse to talk football. Uniform updates help me pass the time. Today is no different, especially with the release of Wisconsin’s new adidas alternate uniform. On a smaller note, the conference has a new rule that requires every team to wear a “B1G” patch on its jerseys. It’s been reported quite a bit and it’s something I tried to spotlight in my media days Clothes Call recap, but here is photo evidence. Not a big thing at all. It’s something the conference is implementing this
