There’s nothing wrong with an ice cold shower in the summer, right? Forget that, no matter the temperature, freezing cold water is going to shock the body. But, when it’s for a great cause, it’s more than worth the discomfort. Like so many others across the nation, Big Ten personalities are accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Watch a sampling in this post.

Site ranks Ann Arbor No. 2 college town in America

Rankings are always fun. They’re even more fun in the summer, when we need something to debate until the games start. Well, bestcollegereviews.org posted a popular list ranking the best college towns that made its way around social media Thursday, and the Big Ten was all over it. In fact, the Big Ten owned two of the top three towns: Ann Arbor (No. 2) and Madison (No. 3). Boulder came in at No. 1, for the curious minds.

What the O'Bannon ruling means for college sports

The NCAA’s model for amateurism took another hit with Friday’s ruling that the NCAA violated anti-trust law in the Ed O’Bannon suit. This, ladies and gentlemen, is maybe the most important ruling in the history of the NCAA. But things may not be as bad you think for the NCAA. In essence, this ruling says the NCAA no longer can prevent schools from giving student-athletes money based on their names, images and likenesses (NIL). It also isn’t allowed to impose a salary cap below $5,000. That money can be put in a trust. The NCAA scored a win, however, in

Judge rules against NCAA in O'Bannon lawsuit

(AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that the NCAA can’t stop college football and basketball players from selling the rights to their names and likenesses, opening the way to athletes getting payouts once their college careers are over. In a landmark decision, U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in favor of former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon and 19 others in a lawsuit that challenged the NCAA’s regulation of college athletics on antitrust grounds. She issued an injunction prohibiting the NCAA from enforcing its rules on money given to athletes when it comes to their names, images and likenesses.

Autonomy for 'Power 5' is here, so what's next?

We saw this coming. It was no shock that the NCAA passed legislation that grants autonomy to the “Power Five” conferences. In fact, it probably had to happen for the current collegiate model not to be comprised. In essence, the richest and most powerful 65 schools from the nation’s top leagues—Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, ACC, Pac-12–now will have power to enact rules that are pertinent to the high level they function at, giving athletic directors and student-athletes a larger role in the legislative process. The new structure likely will go into effect in 2015. [ MORE: NCAA.org: Board adopts

Top 10 offensive players B1G teams will face in 2014

If you take a look up and down the Big Ten, you will find a number of high-profile offensive stars. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is a two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah are both preseason All-American candidates at running back, and Iowa offensive tackle Brandon Scherff is being talked about as the top pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. While it is clear the Big Ten is stacked on offense, so, too, are many of its non-conference opponents. Some of college football’s elite playmakers fill the non-conference slate with names
