Dienhart: Six spring quarterback hot spots in Big Ten country

No position garners attention like quarterback. And, it’s an unsettled position at several Big Ten schools, as spring drills have begun to open. Here is what we know: Penn State (Christian Hackenberg), Minnesota (Mitch Leidner), Iowa (C.J. Beathard), Illinois (Wes Lunt), Nebraska (Tommy Armstrong), Michigan State (Connor Cook), Maryland (Caleb Rowe) and Indiana (Nate Sudfeld) all appear to have a good grasp on who will be their starter in 2015, eliminating much drama in spring drills. But the quarterback situation on some other campuses isn’t as clear. Here’s a look at the “Six Spring Quarterbacking Hot Spots” in Big Ten

Video: Who will each Big Ten football team miss most in 2015?

On Tuesday night’s “BTN Live,” Glen Mason shared who he thought each Big Ten football team would miss the most in 2015.

Stipend figures? Here's a look at potential Big Ten numbers

Much has been written about the stipend that will be granted by “Power Five” conference schools beginning in 2015-16 as part of radical NCAA reforms. David Jones of Pennlive.com put together an interesting story and graphic on the subject. Now, student-athletes will not just receive tuition, books and room-and-board but also an extra amount to be used toward incidental living expenses—Little Caesar’s crazy bread, gas for the Vespa, iTunes downloads, “Cracked” magazine subscriptions … stuff like that. It is known in university parlance as “cost of attendance.” Me? I like to call it “kicking around cash,” or “Friday night loot.”

Six Big Ten teams land on ESPN's list of College Football's Top 24 jobs

If every college football head coaching job became available tomorrow, which would be the most desirable? ESPN.com’s Travis Haney (@TravHaneyESPN) recently headed a project, which ranked each of the 65 college football jobs at the Power 5 level. He released them in three categories: Bottom of the barrel jobs, middle of the road jobs, and top 24 jobs. According to the article, the list includes factors such as location, administrative stability, support from those bosses, facilities, recruiting base, path to conference titles/playoff, sense of tradition, fervor of fan base, too much fervor from a fan base, etc. Our friends over

Dienhart: Reviving freshman ineligibility is not the way to go

There is a growing buzz around the idea to make freshmen students ineligible to play football and men's basketball, and that buzz stems from recent reports that several conferences - including the Big Ten - want to discuss the idea.

Iowa Spring Preview: What's ahead for Iowa football in 2015

Kirk Ferentz will have plenty of veteran talent to work with as he embarks on his 17th season at Iowa. The defense has remained a steady force in recent years; the offense has been inconsistent. To that end, Ferentz tweaked his staff by naming his son Brian the run-game coordinator in addition. Brian will also remain coach of the offensive line, a mainstay unit on any Iowa team. [ MORE: View Tom Dienhart’s other spring previews ] The offense also has both quarterbacks returning, but the Hawkeyes need to establish go-to players at wideout and running back. Here’s a look at
