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

Countdown to kickoff: West best coaching staff?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West best coaching staff? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Minnesota. Few staffs have the connectivity of this one. The cohesion was on full display last season, when the Golden Gophers didn’t skip a beat when Jerry Kill missed time to tend to his health. It all begins with coordinators Matt Limegrover (offense) and Tracy

Dienhart's Diary: Next best thing to being on the bus

At each of the 14 practices across Big Ten country, Dienhart will pen a quick diary post. From Indiana, the first stop, to Illinois, the 14th and final stop, our expert will provide plenty of fun behind-the-scenes updates.

See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa. One NFL talent hound thinks the massive Scherff could be the first pick in the 2015 draft. The former high school quarterback is a unique blend of athletic ability, strength and size. Sean Merriman: Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa. This is a

Ranking the top Big Ten running back duos

Our BTN tour bus stopped in Madison, Wis., Friday to take in Wisconsin camp. While watching practice, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart sent out the following tweet about Wisconsin’s talented running back duo. It doesn't get much better than Corey Clement and Melvin Gordon, the best RB duo in the #B1G. #Badgers pic.twitter.com/0OnS9pFFbP — Tom Dienhart (@BTNTomDienhart) August 15, 2014 This got me thinking about the best duos in the conference.

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.

Countdown to kickoff: West scariest player?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West scariest player? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin. No offense to Ameer Abdullah, but Gordon is the most electric running back in the Big Ten—if not the nation. He’s the quintessential “big play waiting to happen,” and he scares defenses, defensive coordinators, coaches, fans, everyone. *** Sean Merriman: Brandon Scherff,
