Six B1G players in first round of ESPN Mock Draft

The snow has melted. Spring is here. And that means the much-anticipated NFL draft is just around the corner. ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. released his most recent NFL Mock Draft 4.0 this week, and there is plenty of Big Ten love. Six Big Ten players appear in the first round of the mock draft, led by Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, who he has going No. 6 overall to the Atlanta Falcons. “While (Greg) Robinson and Jake Matthews are both very good players and should be at the next level, there’s a case to be made that

Dan Dierdorf named Michigan radio analyst

(AP) Dan Dierdorf is coming back to the booth and will be the radio analyst for University of Michigan football games this fall. The Pro Football Hall of Famer will work with play-by-play announcer Jim Brandstatter, one of his teammates while playing for the Wolverines during the 1969 and 1970 seasons. The announcement Thursday was made by Michigan and IMG College, the school’s multimedia rights partner. “This is the only broadcasting job that I would have considered after retiring from the network television,” Dierdorf said in a statement. “It’s a chance to return to the city where Bump (Elliott) gave

If B1G basketball players formed a football team ...

Here’s a question that college basketball fans have probably asked themselves at one point or another: How good would that guy be if he played football? The which-basketball-players-would-be-great-at-football topic always makes for a great conversation point, but rather than pointlessly flirting with the idea, let’s go ahead and actually put it into action. With both the college football and basketball seasons now in the books, I went ahead and put together a 22-man football lineup made up of all Big Ten hoops players from the 2013-14 season. Did I miss someone? If so, tweet me @BTNSean. OFFENSE Quarterback: Josh Gasser,

SportingNews: Meyer, Dantonio Big Ten's best

SportingNews.com decided to rank the Big Ten’s football coaches, and there’s no surprise at the top of the list. Ohio State’s Urban Meyer, he of two national titles at Florida, is No. 1, and Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio, fresh off a Big Ten title and Rose Bowl Game win, is No. 2. [ MORE: SportingNews.com: Big Ten coach rankings ] After the top two, though, the site’s ranking is certain to elicit its share of debate. Pat Fitzgerald is No. 3, even after a 5-7 season, James Franklin is No. 4, despite never coaching a Big Ten game, and Gary

Recently, football players from the University of Iowa shared the importance of reading with local students. A sea turtle and snowy owl are getting much-needed care at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center. Northwestern University medical students are helping the homeless in Chicago. Problem behavior and school performance are being studied by an innovative new program at the University of Nebraska. Two Rutgers graduates won prestigious Soros Fellowships for New Americans.

Dienhart: Time for college sports to join real world

I have to admit: Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports hit the nail on the head with his recent piece about the NCAA not seeing the totality of the picture when it comes to the future of intercollegiate athletics. In sum, not all college sports are equal. It’s time to acknowledge that and take appropriate actions to a model that is woefully outdated and unfair. It’s time to exit fairytale land and embrace the cold, hard fact many don’t want to embrace in this popsicle-for-everyone-world: LIFE ISN’T FAIR. Not everything and everyone is created equally. So, they shouldn’t be treated as

Michigan to host first Big Ten night game Oct. 11

Michigan announced Monday that it will host its first Big Ten night game against Penn State on October 11. The Wolverines have played just two night games in the history of Michigan Stadium, both vs. Notre Dame, in 2011 and 2013. It’s a new thing, and Michigan is 2-0 under the lights.

Dienhart: Thoughts from Michigan spring game

This will be Michigan’s fourth season under Brady Hoke. And, make no mistake about it: It’s a crossroads campaign. No one in Ann Arbor was satisfied with the 7-6 record last season. And heads rolled, as offensive coordinator Al Borges was fired. Hoke looked to Alabama for a replacement, tabbing Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier. Nussmeier has installed a pro-style approach that involves tight ends, a power rushing game and some more complex pass concepts. Hard to say things looked much different on Saturday during what essentially was more of a scrimmage than a game. Here are some thoughts
