Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West bowl teams? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 countdown to kickoff posts: Tom Dienhart: 5. I have Iowa, my preseason West favorite, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern and Wisconsin all bowling. Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin are easy picks. Minnesota is not, due to its tough schedule, and neither is Northwestern, which recently lost Venric Mark (transfer) and Christian Jones


Dienhart's 2014 Big Ten football predictions

I’ve spent months (seems like years, some days) analyzing the coming 2014 season. I’ve talked to head coaches. assistant coaches and players. I even asked the greeter at my local Walmart who he likes to win the Big Ten. Hey, he’s a big Ohio State fan. I wanted to at least humor the guy, ya know? I’ve written and read countless stories, while also visiting with my brothers and sisters in the media. After all of that, I am ready to unveil my Big Ten predictions for 2014.

2014 preseason All-Big Ten Freshman Team

Our BTN Summer Bus Tour is officially in the books. After visiting 14 Big Ten schools in 17 days, senior writer Tom Dienhart received plenty of insight and got an inside look into what to expect in the upcoming 2014 college football season. One of the biggest takeaways from the tour is that we should expect to see several impact freshman in the Big Ten this season. With Dienhart’s help, as well as some of the top Big Ten football media minds, here is a look at my preseason Big Ten all-freshman team. Get our football tour coverage: OFFENSE

Players on the rise? Here's Tom Dienhart's list!

With the 2014 BTN bus tour in the rearview mirror, it’s time to take a look back at my team-by-team player on the rise. These are the players who have a bright future. They might not be a star or consistent regular this fall, but you should learn their names and get to like their games. Get Tom Dienhart’s latest coverage: Illinois: LB T.J. Neal. The sophomore linebacker looks good in the middle of the defense. I could see him getting 100 tackles. Indiana: LB Marcus Oliver. When I asked a defensive assistant what players he liked, he looked up

Video: Jim Delany does ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

What’s the best way to cool off on a hot summer day? How about having a freezing cold bucket of water dumped over your head, while also donating to a good cause? Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany did just that as he took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday outside of the conference office. Delany was challenged by Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott.

Football Tour: Dienhart's best from Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa – We watched a physical and intense Iowa practice in blazing heat Tuesday. Quick tempo, a lot accomplished. Hopes are high in Iowa City, as Kirk Ferentz enters his 16th season on the job. There’s a lot to like, beginning with strong offensive and defensive lines. The Hawkeyes have six starters back on offense and five on defense. The offense needs to generate some big-play ability; it’s too often a plodding, pedestrian attack. Explosive plays are needed. Defensively, all eyes are on a linebacking corps that has three news starters. The secondary is being retooled, too, with

Iowa camp preview: Is QB Jake Rudock developing?

This looks like a potentially special Iowa team, a squad good enough to win the Big Ten West. The Hawkeyes are coming off a strong 8-5 season with six starters back on offense and five on defense in what will be Kirk Ferentz’s 16th season on the job. Get our latest football tour coverage: Here are questions I have coming to Iowa practice. 1. Are the linebackers OK? The Hawkeyes lost three stalwarts in James Morris, Christian Kirksey and Anthony Hitchens? Quinton Alston looks good in the middle. How about the flanks? 2. Any big-play wideouts emerging? This offense can
