March Madness: B1G Football Uniform Bracket II

The votes are in, and we’ve reached the second round of’s 2012 Big Ten football uniform bracket. Much like the NCAA tourney, there were a couple early upsets, including No. 10 Illinois taking down No. 3 Ohio State. Not to be outdone, No. 9 Purdue also stunned No. 4 Nebraska. Check out all the first-round decisions. Also, cast your Round 2 votes in this post. Remember, because the second round features an odd number of matchups (3), the uniform with the highest number of Round 2 votes will get an automatic berth into the championship, while the other two

March Madness: B1G Football Uniform Bracket

The word bracket overtakes our vocabulary every March — much to the delight of sports fans across the nation. Brackets don’t begin and end with the NCAA tournament, though. Every year around this time, people create brackets for pretty much everything, including coolest name. Here, web editor Brent Yarina decided to put together a Big Ten football uniform bracket. Cast your votes in this post. Here’s how it works: Vote for the winner of the six first-round matchups, and I’ll advance the winners Sunday night. Next week, I’ll post the next three matchups, let you all vote, and then

Spring Football: What's On The Horizon

Big Ten football is almost back. Spring practices are set to begin with Northwestern kicking off on March 3 and most sessions culminate with a spring game of sorts. Three schools have new head coaches (Illinois, Ohio State, and Penn State) and the usual roster turnover hits every squad, too. In anticipation of these practices, I took a quick look at three primary areas of development for each school. And here’s the list of spring dates I posted a while back. And I’m experimenting with a new kind of Q&A where readers submit questions directly to me and I deliver

Football Report: Dienhart joins the show

Tuesday on Big Ten Football Report, senior writer Tom Dienhart joined Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith on the weekly show. The crew tackled plenty of topics, including the NCAA Rules Committee proposing to move kickoffs to the 35-yard line and the Football Bowl Association considering increasing the number of wins for bowl eligibility, from six to seven. Watch the video now to see what our guys think about the issues and cast your vote on both in this post. Also, watch DiNardo’s interview with new Illinois coach Tim Beckman inside.

Fourteen Big Ten products win Super Bowl rings

Fourteen former Big Ten players will be fitted for rings after the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots, 21-17, Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVI (AP recap). Ex-Michigan WR Mario Manningham highlighted the group with five receptions for 73 yards, including a ridiculous 38-yard grab (watch the catch!) that helped set up New York’s game-winning score in the final minute. See how all Big Ten products did in the Super Bowl in this post. The Big Ten ties extended to the New York coaching staff, too, as Pat Flaherty (Penn State & Iowa assistant), Peter Giunta (Penn State

Dienhart: Big Ten recruiting notebook

The calendar says 2012, but it may as well be 1975. The Big Ten is all about Michigan and Ohio State on this Signing Day, hearkening to days of the “Big Two and the Little Eight.” Only in today’s world, it’s the “Big Two and the Little 10.” According to, Ohio State and Michigan dominated the Big Ten in recruiting. And, it really wasn’t close. The Buckeyes singed seven Top 100 recruits, with four five-star signees and 11 four-star recruits. The Wolverines inked six of’s Top 100 players, including one five-star recruit and 14 four-star recruits.’s Allen

Designer's Big Ten helmet ideas hit Web

There’s a designer out there, Charles Sollars, who is designing FAUX Nike Pro Combat helmets for BCS conference schools. While the helmets are just concepts and something he does as a hobby, I assume, they’re still really fun for all of us to consider and critique. Many of the lids are pretty cool, too. He has a design for every Big Ten school — some good, some ridiculous — and you can see them in this post. Again, these are not real — just something fun to consider.

Signing Day: Indiana

In his first full year with the Hoosiers, head coach Kevin Wilson really emphasized the home-state recruiting approach. Indiana signed eight from in-state, including two from one of the state’s powerhouses: Warren Central. Those two, speedy wide receiver Kevin Davis and linebacker Jordan Wallace, are among the headliners in the class. Arguably the most talented player in the class came from Illinois though, running back Tevin Coleman, who could play defensive back in college as well. The Hoosiers signed six JUCO players who all enrolled in January and several, particularly the defensive players like linebacker David Cooper, safety Tregg Waters,
