Dienhart: My 2013 All-Big Ten Spring Team

The Big Ten put a wrap on spring football last weekend, with Iowa and Minnesota playing the final spring games in the conference. Now, the long offseason begins. But, honestly, this is when players get better—not from September to December. Here’s a look at the players who exceled this spring, giving them plenty of mojo entering the key summer period.

Dienhart: 13 thoughts on new divisions

The announcement of the new divisions created a buzz across the Big Ten landscape. Leaders and Legends are gone. East and West are in. And a nine-game Big Ten schedule is coming in 2016. Here are 13 observations about the new arrangements. [ RELATED: No more “Legends & Leaders” | Dienhart: It’s the right move | Sound off on BTN Connect ] 1.

New divisions, schedules ahead for football

So the Big Ten Conference will move to two new football East and West divisions in 2014 and a nine-game conference schedule in 2016. In an interview with BTN on Sunday, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said, “Being broader, being larger, geography had to play a larger part.” Meanwhile, BTN.com senior writer tells our BTN football team not to be so quick to say the East will always be stronger than the West. BTN football analyst Gerry DiNardo prefers the previous set-up was based on competitive balance while Howard Griffith says the East has the edge right now. Find out

East meets West: Big Ten unveils new divisions

It’s official: The Big Ten Conference will have new division alignments set to begin in 2014 and nine-game Big Ten Conference schedules for 2016 after the recommendations were unanimously approved by school athletic directors and supported by the Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors. In a statement released by the conference, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said, “Big Ten directors of athletics concluded four months of study and deliberation with unanimous approval of a future football structure that preserved rivalries and created divisions based on their primary principle of East/West geography.” We break it all down tonight on “The BTN Football

Big Ten buzzing over reports of new divisions

In a move that had been speculated for months with Rutgers and Maryland poised to join the Big Ten and make it a 14-team league in 2014, the conference is apparently set to announce divisional realignment based on geography. Conference presidents and chancellors will reportedly vote on the divisions, new division names, and an expanded league schedule format on Sunday. Indiana and Purdue would be the lone protected cross-division rivalry, guaranteeing the in-state foes to meet each season for the hallowed Old Oaken Bucket. Earlier this week Purdue president Mitch Daniels told The (Lafayette) Journal and Courier that everything should

Dienhart: Plenty of questions remain for MSU offense

Michigan State entered spring drills with few big questions on defense. In fact, the Spartans may have the Big Ten’s top defense—again. But the offense still has some big questions to answer after the spring game today. Here are some observations. [ VIDEO: Watch all of the Green-White Game highlights, interviews ] 1. All eyes were on the offense, which struggled mightily last season for a team that lost five games by a combined 13 points during a disappointing 7-6 season. And, frankly, it didn’t really impress today. Read on. 2. The running back situation remains unsettled, as the Spartans

Video: Ex-Spartan Kirk Cousins, the singer

We know Kirk Cousins, the football player. We also know Kirk Cousins, the orator. We even know Kirk Cousins, the football analyst. But what about Kirk Cousins, the singer and performer? Yeah, he’s that, too, and we saw footage of it during Saturday’s Green-White Game. [ VIDEO: Watch all of Saturday’s Green-White Game highlights ] You see, BTN aired a video of Cousins singing and dancing as a high school senior during the spring game, which the former Michigan State star helped call from the press box. The footage, in a word, is classic. And yes, Kirk, as you said,

Video: Spartan brothers hook up for trick play

Ever see a linebacker complete a pass to a linebacker? Of course, you haven’t. It happened Saturday in Michigan State’s Green-White Game at Spartan Stadium. The play was even more rare because brothers were on both ends of it, as redshirt freshman Riley Bullough lined up in the backfield and completed a pass to senior Max Bullough, who lined up at tight end. [ VIDEO: Watch all of Saturday’s Green-White Game highlights ] Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time the Bulloughs, both listed as linebackers, have hooked up on a pass. The younger Bullough played quarterback in
