Tom Dienhart's top Big Ten East coach hires the last 40 years

Wednesday, I took a look at the best hires in the last 40 years at schools in the Big Ten West. Today, I do the same for the Big Ten East. INDIANA Bill Mallory. The farther we get from his tenure, the greater it looks. Mallory had all the flash of a pair of wing tips, a do-the-right-thing throw-back coach who forged the Hoosiers into a strong program built around a physical offense and honest-to-goodness defense. He went 68-77-3 (39-65-1 in the Big Ten) from 1984-1996 with six bowls after arriving from Northern Illinois to replace Sam Wyche—who was in

Impersonations are great. Know what makes them even greater, funnier? When the impersonator knows the subject.

Indiana? Michigan State? Illinois? Minnesota? All the others? Hapless punching bags to the goliaths that were the Wolverines and Buckeyes, who routinely were ranked in the top five in the country while churning out myriad stars. Now, Ohio State and Michigan look primed to declare war again on the rest

Big Ten football players offer freshmen to watch this season

Late last week, I asked seven Big Ten players to give me a true freshman who has stood out to them thus far, and who could potentially make an impact in the upcoming 2015 season. Here is part two of the piece, featuring the picks for Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue and Rutgers. Jehu Chesson, Michigan: Alex Malzone, QB. He’s a cool kid. When he first came on campus, he already possessed a lot of things I personally look for in a freshman, especially when it’s a guy who’s going to be throwing me the ball. I look
