Dienhart: Reaction to preseason Coaches Poll

The coaches poll came out today—and there weren’t many, if any, surprises. Five Big Ten teams are ranked: No. 2 Ohio State; No. 17 Michigan; No. 18 Nebraska; No. 22 Northwestern; No. 23 Wisconsin. Alabama is No. 1. The Crimson Tide return a loaded roster from a national championship team. Alabama is college football’s “it” program, winning three national championships in the past four seasons. Any school that wants to win the last BCS title before a playoff begins in 2014 likely will have to walk through Nick Saban’s Tide. Ohio State could be that team. Coming off a 12-0

Keep the cards and letters coming. I love hearing from you all. I like your best-case record scenario for Nebraska, except the Michigan loss. I believe your worst-case scenario should be a little worse than stated. I would have the Huskers also losing to Michigan State and Penn State in my worst-case scenario. This would make them 7-5.

Injuries force Michigan State's Sklyer Burkland to retire

Michigan State junior offensive tackle Skyler Burkland has announced his retirement from football due to multiple injuries and will forgo his final two years of eligibility with the Spartans.
