A look at Big Ten prospects in 2014 NFL Draft

The 2013 NFL draft wasn’t kind to the Big Ten. Just 22 players were selected—the fewest since 1994. Just one pick came in the first round, as the selection of Wisconsin center Travis Frederick No. 31 overall by the Cowboys was considered to be a massive reach by anyone with Internet access and a mock draft. But, fear not: The 2014 NFL draft should be much more fruitful for the Big Ten. Check out this way, way, WAY early mock draft from SI.com. Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby is pegged to go No. 11. Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan is

Dienhart: My 2013 All-Big Ten Spring Team

The Big Ten put a wrap on spring football last weekend, with Iowa and Minnesota playing the final spring games in the conference. Now, the long offseason begins.

Here are 13 observations about the new arrangements. [ RELATED: No more “Legends & Leaders” | Dienhart: It’s the right move | Sound off on BTN Connect ] 1.

New divisions, schedules ahead for football

So the Big Ten Conference will move to two new football East and West divisions in 2014 and a nine-game conference schedule in 2016. In an interview with BTN on Sunday, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said, “Being broader, being larger, geography had to play a larger part.” Meanwhile, BTN.com senior writer tells our BTN football team not to be so quick to say the East will always be stronger than the West. BTN football analyst Gerry DiNardo prefers the previous set-up was based on competitive balance while Howard Griffith says the East has the edge right now. Find out

East meets West: Big Ten unveils new divisions

It’s official: The Big Ten Conference will have new division alignments set to begin in 2014 and nine-game Big Ten Conference schedules for 2016 after the recommendations were unanimously approved by school athletic directors and supported by the Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors. In a statement released by the conference, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said, “Big Ten directors of athletics concluded four months of study and deliberation with unanimous approval of a future football structure that preserved rivalries and created divisions based on their primary principle of East/West geography.” We break it all down tonight on “The BTN Football

Big Ten buzzing over reports of new divisions

In a move that had been speculated for months with Rutgers and Maryland poised to join the Big Ten and make it a 14-team league in 2014, the conference is apparently set to announce divisional realignment based on geography. Conference presidents and chancellors will reportedly vote on the divisions, new division names, and an expanded league schedule format on Sunday. Indiana and Purdue would be the lone protected cross-division rivalry, guaranteeing the in-state foes to meet each season for the hallowed Old Oaken Bucket. Earlier this week Purdue president Mitch Daniels told The (Lafayette) Journal and Courier that everything should

Dienhart: Indiana is a program on the rise

Kevin Wilson continues to put his stamp on the Indiana program as he enters his third season in Bloomington. The Hoosiers are looking for their first bowl trip since 2007. The team almost turned the corner last season, going from 1-11 overall and 0-8 in the Big Ten to 4-8 and 2-6. This is a program with some momentum that’s on the rise.

Clothes Call: Fred Glass rocks candy stripe blazer

There are candy stripe pants, and then there are candy stripe blazers. Indiana AD Fred Glass showed off the latter during Saturday afternoon’s annual spring game at Memorial Stadium. [ CLOTHES CALL: Big Ten teams divide spring squads by helmet ] It was an interesting look, no doubt. And the Indiana hooded sweatshirt under the sport coat only complicated things. Got to say, as great as the candy stripe pants are, the design doesn’t translate so well to jackets. Wisconsin fans would argue it looks better on a turtleneck.
