Michigan State QBs

QB Andrew Maxwell to start for Spartans, but ...

After weeks of waiting and speculation, Michigan State finally has released its depth chart. And there is no resolution at quarterback, as all four contenders are separated by “ors”. That’s correct. Weeks of preseason practice seemingly have brought no resolution to this oh-so-key position. Amazing. It’s Andrew Maxwell OR Connor Cook OR Tyler O’Connor OR Damion Terry. This certainly isn’t an ideal situation, no matter what East Lansing spin doctors may try to tell you. So, who will take the first snap for the season opener this Friday at home vs. Western Michigan? It will be Maxwell, according to MSU

Dienhart: Kicking off my 2013 bowl projections

Not one football has been kicked off. Regardless, I bring to you my first edition of the 2013 bowl projections. I’ll be rolling these out there every Monday this season, so let me know what you think. As you can see, I have Ohio State playing Alabama in the BCS title game. That would be a fitting end to the BCS era, with two of the sport’s iconic programs battling in the historic Rose Bowl. Hey, if the Big Ten is gonna show it is making strides on the national scene, what better way to impress than by possibly beating

Dienhart: Ohio State tops preseason power poll

The analysis, opinion, conjecture, speculation and anticipation are almost finished. Real, live football kicks off Thursday, with Minnesota hosting UNLV and Indiana entertaining Indiana State.

Dienhart: Best of the 2013 BTN Football Tour

After 15 nights in 12 hotels and 12 cities, stretching from Lincoln, Neb., to State College, Pa., the BTN bus has come to a stop. It was a fun ride, visiting all the Big Ten schools to watch practices. It was the BTN crew’s last chance to kick the tires on each team before the start of the 2013 season. I ate a lot of fast food and drank a lot of Red Bull while traveling the interstates of this great nation. I chowed on Arby’s on I-80; enjoyed Wendy’s on I-94; grubbed on Subway on I-70. Along the way,
