Celebrating 5 years: Top 5 QBs of BTN era

Believe it or not, BTN will celebrate its fifth anniversary later this month. The big day is Aug. 30, to be exact. As a way to celebrate – not to mention kill time before the 2012 season kicks off – I’m spotlighting some of the great football careers during our time on the air. I’ll do it in the mold of “Big Ten’s Best,” our popular countdown show that returns this fall for another season of ranking the best in Big Ten history. My fourth list ranks the top five quarterbacks of the last five seasons, aka the BTN era.

Illinois QB Nathan Scheelhaase signs BTN tour bus

There’s a familiar face on the side of the BTN tour bus this summer. It’s that of Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, the same guy who was featured on the bus last summer. Last year, the tradition was to take a picture of the players in front of their likeness on the bus. This year, we’re having them sign it. See a picture of Scheelhaase putting his autograph on his likeness in this post. [BTN.com: Read all of our football tour coverage] Did you miss the Illinois Preview Show? Watch it on BTN2Go.

Football Tour: Will we figure out Beckman's Illini?

The BTN bus heads to beautiful Champaign, Ill., next to watch Tim Beckman’s first edition of the Illini. Check out the Illinois Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET Saturday on BTN/BTN2Go. Not sure what to expect, as Beckman has kept a tight lid on things with limited access in camp. But the offense will command much of my attention. I think quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase is a nice fit for the new spread scheme. But I have questions about the line, receivers and running backs. The line is especially worrisome, as shuffling continues with Luke Butkus still looking for the right

Web Links: Who's Ramping Up The Deuce Formation?

I’m still on the road with the Big Ten Football Preview Tour and we’re in Indiana today. Tonight at 10 p.m. ET you can catch our preview show on Purdue. This tour is keeping me busy as I preview each stop and recap each practice – it’s all over here. I’m also providing updates and photos via Twitter. Don’t forget to check out my colleagues @BTNDaveRevsine, @GerryDiNardo, and @HowardGriffith, too. Now, let’s get to my Thursday links. Two-fer: Michigan used a “deuce” formation that included Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner in concert from time to time last season. Expect more of

Celebrating 5 years: Top 5 running backs of BTN era

It’s been a fast handful of years, and on Aug. 30, BTN will officially celebrate its fifth anniversary. Crazy to think, huh? To celebrate – not to mention kill time before the season kicks off – I’m spotlighting some of the great football careers during our existence. I’ll do it in the mold of “Big Ten’s Best,” our popular countdown show that returns this fall for another season of ranking the best in Big Ten history.

Ready, set, click Wednesday's B1G web links

The BTN tour continues Wednesday, with the tour bus stopping in West Lafayette, Ind., to take in Purdue practice. On Tuesday, we watched Northwestern in Kenosha, Wis., and here are my thoughts from that practice. Don’t forget about the Northwestern Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET Wednesday. Until then, enjoy Wednesday’s Big Ten web links. IMPORTANT COG UNDER CENTER: The key to the Michigan State season? According to CBS, it’s quarterback Andrew Maxwell. I can agree with that. Maxwell has skills on par with departed Kirk Cousins and the junior isn’t a newcomer to the program. But, we still don’t

Illinois adds Nebraska OL transfer Klachko

(AP) Nebraska offensive lineman Ryan Klachko has transferred to Illinois. Illinois coach Tim Beckman said Wednesday that the 6-foot-4, 290-pound redshirt freshman was one of the top high school players in Illinois when he played at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Springfield. Illinois says Klachko has started practicing with the team but under NCAA rules will have to sit out the 2012 season. He has three seasons of eligibility left.
