B1G Whiteboard: Who else is pumped for OSU-MSU?

One week of Big Ten action is in the books, as Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State continue to lead the way. Illinois is a surprising 2-0 and thinking big, while Michigan has overcome injuries to forge a 2-0 start. Minnesota may be better than expected, while 1-1 Iowa is still formidable after a tough loss at Wisconsin on Sunday. This week, all eyes will be on the Breslin Center in East Lansing, where the Spartans will play host to Ohio State in a monster league game. Here’s a breakdown of the week ahead. GAME OF THE WEEK: Ohio State

Big Ten Geeks: Did Fran lose it?

The easy narrative for Wisconsin’s win over Iowa is that Fran McCaffrey was hit with a double technical foul when his team held a 2-point lead, and that those four points gave Wisconsin the lead, the momentum, and the margin of victory.

Iowa held an 11-point lead at halftime, and up until the technical (which were assessed before Nigel Hayes could attempt his free throws on a foul called just prior), Wisconsin was closing fast.

Did You See This? MSU shirt pokes fun at Michigan slogan

“Rise to the Occasion.” That slogan was featured prominently on Michigan’s Adidas warmup shirts during last year’s memorable NCAA basketball tournament run. It looks like Spartan fans are having some fun with the slogan. Check out this t-shirt that reads “Rose to the Occasion,” in honor of MSU’s 24-20 win over Stanford in this year’s Rose Bowl Game.

Big Ten Geeks: Wolverines Win in the Barn

Thursday brought conference openers for the four Big Ten teams that didn’t get going on New Year’s Eve. One game was a laugher, and one was a barn burner. Let’s dive right in. In a fantastic basketball game, Michigan came away with a hard-fought road victory at Minnesota. This one was tight the whole way, as neither team managed a double digit lead at any point. The Wolverines got a huge boost from their bench, with freshman Zak Irvin going 5-of-8 from three for 15 points, and big man Jon Horford posting 14 points and nine rebounds. Those nice contributions aside,

Big Ten Geeks: Away we go

On the final day of 2013, two-thirds of the Big Ten got the conference season underway in entertaining fashion. Ohio State withstood a valiant effort from Purdue before pulling away for the road win. More than anything else, this game displayed the Boilermakers’ potential, as they played even with one of the nation’s top teams for long stretches. Purdue nearly managed to score a point per possession on the Buckeyes–a feat which has been accomplished only once this season–despite shooting 3-for-14 from three and getting a lackluster offensive game from A.J. Hammons. The supporting cast did a great job of making

Michigan coach Johnny Orr passes away

Johnny Orr, the fist-pumping basketball coach who led Michigan to the national title game and Iowa State into national prominence, has died. He was 86.  His death was confirmed Tuesday by Iowa State, where Orr led the Cyclones to a school-record 218 wins from 1980 until 1994. Twelve of Orr’s 29 seasons as a Division I coach were at Michigan, where he guided the Wolverines to four NCAA tournament berths, the national title game in 1976 and 209 wins, the most in the school history. Orr was twice named the Big Ten’s coach of the year. In 1976, Orr was
