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. Editor’s note: This ranking was compiled by bestcollegereviews.org and does not reflect the opinion of BTN or any employees. Get our latest

Football Tour: Dienhart's best from Michigan State

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State is now the hunted. How will it respond? It should be interesting. The Spartans have scaled the top of Big Ten mountain, capping a conference championship season with a Rose Bowl triumph en route to going 13-1 last season. The offense is loaded with skill talent but needs three new starters up front. The big holes to fill are on defense, as there will be six new starters. But Mark Dantonio has proven he can evaluate talent, recruit and find guys who fit his system in what is the ultimate blue-collar program. I still

Gas leak, weather affect Michigan State practice

It was an eventful practice at Michigan State Tuesday morning. With the BTN crew in town to watch the Spartans for tonight’s BTN Live (6 ET, BTN/BTN2Go), the team practiced at three different locations. Things started on the practice field, until a gas leak forced the team to move to Munn Field, but not before inclement weather shifted things to the indoor facility.

Michigan State camp preview: Is this group still hungry?

Michigan State is the reigning Big Ten king. Can the Spartans stay on top? This program is rolling as Mark Dantonio enters his eighth year in East Lansing. The last four years, MSU has gone 42-12 overall and 25-7 in the Big Ten. What’s next? A national title? Maybe. Get our latest football tour coverage: Here are some questions I have prior to attending Michigan State practice on Tuesday. 1. Is the o-line rolling? It’s the biggest question on an otherwise loaded MSU offense. Left tackle Jack Conklin and center Jack Allen are the lone starters back. Others have experience,

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
