Thursday links: Forbes.com ranks football teams

This is a great place to start daily links. Forbes.com has ranked the “most valuable” college football teams of 2013. A pretty interesting exercise. The most “valuable” Big Ten franchise: Michigan at No. 5. Next is Ohio State at No. 9; Nebraska No. 10; Penn State is No. 15; Wisconsin is No. 16. I guess I am a bit shocked that Ohio State isn’t No. 1 among Big Ten schools. I don’t care what metrics you use, how can the Buckeyes not be No. 1? Oh, well. It doesn’t really matter. *** The most emotional sports moment of the year?

Dienhart: Ranking stars Big Ten will face in bowls

The Big Ten has seven teams in bowls. And there are some high-level opponents, including Stanford, Clemson, South Carolina and LSU.

Competitive balance was out; geography was in. The

Clothes Call: A look back at new 2013 uniform designs

With the year quickly coming to a close, I decided to take a look at the new basketball and football uniform designs that debuted in 2013. Don’t worry, 2014 is certain to include just as many, if not more, new designs. Actually, I’m not so sure that’s a good thing. Either way, enjoy the look back. ILLINOIS Tim Beckman and Illinois showed off plenty of new designs in 2013. Prior to the season, the Illini unveiled a new orange primary helmet.

Rose Bowl Preview: Michigan State vs. Stanford

Michigan State is making its first trip to Pasadena since the 1987 season in what will be the 100th Rose Bowl. This is a culmination of sorts for Mark Dantonio in his seven seasons in East Lansing, finally getting the Spartans to the Big Ten’s Holy Grail after some close calls. Stanford is making its fourth trip to a BCS in a row and its second journey in succession to the Rose Bowl. This has become the premier Pac-12 program under David Shaw. Who needs Jim Harbaugh?
