First Four: Big Ten stars answer four questions

Best Big Ten uniform? 4. Favorite Big Ten road trip? The players’ answers were anonymous, and the only rule was that they couldn’t use their school for any answer.

Dienhart: My preseason basketball lists

It’s Big Ten Basketball Media Day and here are my various preseason picks. My colleague and BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina posted his selections over here. STANDINGS 1. Indiana. One of the Big Ten’s deepest and most talented teams in years. 2. Michigan. Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway, Jr., will be the top guard tandem in the league. 3. Ohio State. Life without Jared Sullinger begins—but there’s lots to like including Deshaun Thomas. 4. Michigan State. Always count on Tom Izzo’s teams playing tough defense and rebounding. 5. Wisconsin. Are there more talented teams? Yes. Are there better coached teams?

As BTN.com editor I watch a lot of Big Ten basketball each season. Here are my selections from Big Ten Basketball Media Day. Our senior writer Tom Dienhart posted his similar list over here. Compare and contrast, and leave your selections at the bottom of my post. I’m sure fans have differing views. STANDINGS 1. Indiana. So much depth, so much talent, and so many expectations. 2. Michigan. Only issue is leadership, with Zack Novak and Stu Douglass gone. 3. Michigan State. Adreian Payne and Derrick Nix’s length will give foes fits. 4. Ohio State. Few talk about it, but
