Football Tour: Dienhart's best from Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Michigan has just 10 scholarship seniors as Brady Hoke enters his fourth season in Ann Arbor. He hasn’t been able to replicate his 2011 debut, when he went 11-2 and won the Sugar Bowl. Needless to say, the Wolverines will be scrutinized this fall. The defense has a chance to be good from front to back. The key to success will be how the offense develops, especially up front. New coordinator Doug Nussmeier has arrived from Alabama. Don’t expect any new, radical schemes. Just look for a balanced attacked built around the ground game. This was

Countdown to kickoff: East top newcomer?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: East top newcomer? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Jabrill Peppers, CB, Michigan. Touted by some as the nation’s top corner, Peppers should have a just-add-water impact in some role (nickel back) in the secondary. He also could help as a return man with his dynamic game-breaking speed. Sean Merriman: Jabrill Peppers, CB, Michigan. Peppers

Michigan camp preview: Is the o-line better?

It’s no secret: This is a big year for Michigan and Brady Hoke, who last year saw a 5-0 start melt into a 7-6 finish. The offense floundered, so coordinator Al Borges was dismissed. Hoke tabbed Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier to take over. What new wrinkles will we see? It won’t really matter unless the line improves. Get our latest football tour coverage: Here are questions I will take to Michigan practice on Monday. 1. Is the offensive line better? The unit’s struggles are well-chronicled. The inability to get a consistent push was the undoing of the offense. The

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

Michigan to wear alternate uniforms vs. Penn State

Michigan football will sport new uniforms when it takes on Penn State on Oct. 11 under the lights in Ann Arbor. The program revealed the new look on Friday evening with the following Twitter post. We say it. We live it. Now, we wear it. #GoBlue pic.twitter.com/7Jff9jrKHi — Michigan Football (@umichfootball) August 9, 2014 Shortly after that, the uniforms were presented to the team on a video screen during a team meeting. Watch the team reaction here: The last time the Wolverines wore an alternate uniforms was in the 2013 Outback Bowl vs. South Carolina. Check out our latest Clothes Call

Judge rules against NCAA in O'Bannon lawsuit

(AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that the NCAA can’t stop college football and basketball players from selling the rights to their names and likenesses, opening the way to athletes getting payouts once their college careers are over. In a landmark decision, U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in favor of former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon and 19 others in a lawsuit that challenged the NCAA’s regulation of college athletics on antitrust grounds. She issued an injunction prohibiting the NCAA from enforcing its rules on money given to athletes when it comes to their names, images and likenesses.

Autonomy for 'Power 5' is here, so what's next?

We saw this coming. It was no shock that the NCAA passed legislation that grants autonomy to the “Power Five” conferences. In fact, it probably had to happen for the current collegiate model not to be comprised. In essence, the richest and most powerful 65 schools from the nation’s top leagues—Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, ACC, Pac-12–now will have power to enact rules that are pertinent to the high level they function at, giving athletic directors and student-athletes a larger role in the legislative process. The new structure likely will go into effect in 2015. [ MORE: NCAA.org: Board adopts

Top 10 offensive players B1G teams will face in 2014

If you take a look up and down the Big Ten, you will find a number of high-profile offensive stars. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is a two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah are both preseason All-American candidates at running back, and Iowa offensive tackle Brandon Scherff is being talked about as the top pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. While it is clear the Big Ten is stacked on offense, so, too, are many of its non-conference opponents. Some of college football’s elite playmakers fill the non-conference slate with names

With the

Which conference produces most NFL starting QBs?

During last week’s Big Ten football media days, I asked one player from all 14 Big Ten teams this question: If you were an NFL GM and could pick one Big Ten player to start a franchise with, who would it be? I heard many players go with Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah and Iowa offensive tackle Brandon Scherff. But there was one answer, in particular, that caught me by surprise, and it came from non-other than Nebraska’s Kenny Bell, who has gained the reputation for dropping some outstanding quotes. “I would take Ameer Abdullah,
