B1G spring football: Top 3 players at each position

Iowa, Michigan State and Rutgers wrapped up the Big Ten spring football season with spring games on Saturday. After 13 games, one practice and an infamous cat leading Nebraska onto the field, it’s safe to say that this year’s spring was a success. Many Big Ten teams faced questions heading into the spring, and a number of those questions were answered. So now we ask: Who are the top players in the conference heading into the 2014 Big Ten football season? Here is a breakdown of the top three Big Ten players at each position. QUARTERBACK 1. Braxton Miller, Ohio

Dienhart: Iowa spring football wrap

Iowa is coming off a nice rebound season in 2013, forging an 8-5 mark (5-3 Big Ten) a year after going 4-8 (2-6). Now, expectations are high in Iowa City for a Hawkeyes program that brings back lots of talent and could win the inaugural Big Ten West as Kirk Ferentz begins his 16th season. The biggest reason for optimism? An offense that teems with as much skill-position talent as it has had in years. Here are some observations about spring ball in Iowa City.

Video: DiNardo, Griffith talk Iowa spring game

Iowa held its annual spring game Saturday afternoon. The Hawkeyes, fresh off an 8-5 season, will enter the 2014 season as one of the favorites to challenge for the inaugural West Division crown. Hear from Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz and get Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith’s analysis of the Hawkeyes spring and 2014 outlook in this post.

Get ready for today's three spring games

The Big Ten will conduct its final three spring games this weekend, with Iowa, Michigan State and Rutgers putting a bow on things. Here’s a look at what to watch for on Saturday as the Big Ten heads into the offseason with its eyes on 2014. IOWA What to watch: How is the passing game? The Hawkeyes must re-tool their linebacking corps, which has lost stalwarts in Anthony Hitchens, James Morris and Christian Kirksey. Reggie Spearman, Quinton Alston and Travis Perry have impressed. But adding oomph to the passing game is more vital. The attack tied for ninth in the

#BTNLive: Jim Delany on NCAA proposal

The NCAA’s board of directors took the first step toward shifting power to the five largest football conferences on Thursday, endorsing a 57-page plan that calls for giving 65 of the nation’s biggest schools more autonomy in how to fund scholarships, handle health care and decide other increasingly hot-button issues involving their athletes. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany appeared on Thursday’s “#BTNLive” to discuss the latest developments, and you can watch that entire interview in this post. If approved later this year, schools in the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC could implement some rules on their own

NFL Draft history: Big Ten stunners & surprises

Talent evaluation is a dicey proposition. Even with all of the resources that NFL teams have to learn about college players—the NFL Combine, interviews, on-campus workouts, an army of scouts, reels of video—teams still can mess up a pick or stumble into a pleasant surprise. The disappointments become glaring when they happen in the first round, the one round of picks where you would think teams could get correct. And years later, the nice surprises almost jump out off the draft board when you see how a college player went on to exceed expectations in the NFL. Here’s a look

College sports could step into future on Thursday

On Thursday, the NCAA Board of Directors is expected to OK a new model of how its organization is run. Bottom line: major changes appear to be coming, as it appears the NCAA is trying to get a lot of this done to thwart multiple lawsuits vs. the Indianapolis institution and also to unplug the union movement. A big anticipated change: The five power conferences are expected to be given autonomy from other leagues. [ MORE: BTN/BTN2Go announces 2014 prime-time football schedule ] What’s it mean? The Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, ACC and Pac 12 would basically be able

Dienhart: My top 10 Big Ten NFL draft prospects

We are inching closer to the NFL draft. And the Big Ten can only hope the 2014 draft is more fruitful than the 2013 draft. The Big Ten had just one first-round pick in 2013—and it didn’t come until No. 31 overall, when the Cowboys tabbed Wisconsin center Travis Frederick. And there were just four second-round selections: Purdue DT Kawann Short; Michigan State RB Le’Veon Bell; Ohio State’s Johnathan Hankins; Wisconsin RB Montee Ball. In all, the Big Ten produced only 22 draft picks, its lowest total since 1994, when it had 21 (and 11 teams, not 12). The prospects

If B1G basketball players formed a football team ...

Here’s a question that college basketball fans have probably asked themselves at one point or another: How good would that guy be if he played football? The which-basketball-players-would-be-great-at-football topic always makes for a great conversation point, but rather than pointlessly flirting with the idea, let’s go ahead and actually put it into action. With both the college football and basketball seasons now in the books, I went ahead and put together a 22-man football lineup made up of all Big Ten hoops players from the 2013-14 season.
