See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 countdown to kickoff posts: Tom Dienhart: Jump Around. Every fan should experience “Jump Around” in Camp Randall Stadium at Wisconsin, a tradition that signals the start of the fourth quarter. You can feel the stadium sway. Really. While you’re jumping up and down, don’t forget to check out the

2014 preseason All-Big Ten Freshman Team

Our BTN Summer Bus Tour is officially in the books. After visiting 14 Big Ten schools in 17 days, senior writer Tom Dienhart received plenty of insight and got an inside look into what to expect in the upcoming 2014 college football season. One of the biggest takeaways from the tour is that we should expect to see several impact freshman in the Big Ten this season. With Dienhart’s help, as well as some of the top Big Ten football media minds, here is a look at my preseason Big Ten all-freshman team. Get our football tour coverage: OFFENSE

Players on the rise? Here's Tom Dienhart's list!

With the 2014 BTN bus tour in the rearview mirror, it’s time to take a look back at my team-by-team player on the rise. These are the players who have a bright future. They might not be a star or consistent regular this fall, but you should learn their names and get to like their games. Get Tom Dienhart’s latest coverage: Illinois: LB T.J. Neal. The sophomore linebacker looks good in the middle of the defense. I could see him getting 100 tackles. Indiana: LB Marcus Oliver. When I asked a defensive assistant what players he liked, he looked up

Dienhart's best of the 2014 BTN bus tour

The BTN bus traveled almost 4,000 miles, beginning in Bloomington, Ind., on Aug. 4 and ending in Champaign, Ill., on Aug. 20. We have kicked the tires on all 14 teams one last time—watching practice, talking to players, talking to coaches–before the season kicks off next week. Deep breath!

Video: Jim Delany does ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

What’s the best way to cool off on a hot summer day? How about having a freezing cold bucket of water dumped over your head, while also donating to a good cause? Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany did just that as he took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday outside of the conference office. Delany was challenged by Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott.

Countdown to kickoff: West best coaching staff?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West best coaching staff? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Minnesota. Few staffs have the connectivity of this one. The cohesion was on full display last season, when the Golden Gophers didn’t skip a beat when Jerry Kill missed time to tend to his health. It all begins with coordinators Matt Limegrover (offense) and Tracy

Dienhart's Diary: Next best thing to being on the bus senior writer Tom Dienhart is trying something new this year on our annual football tour. At each of the 14 practices across Big Ten country, Dienhart will pen a quick diary post. From Indiana, the first stop, to Illinois, the 14th and final stop, our expert will provide plenty of fun behind-the-scenes updates.

Minnesota unveiled a new alternate helmet during BTN Live’s visit Saturday. The gold lid, with a maroon “M,” facemask and stripe down the middle, was on our set for Saturday night’s show. The helmet also features the school’s “Ski-U-Mah” cheer on the front and back of the stripe. See the helmet in this post.

Football Tour: Dienhart's best from Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS – There is some mojo to Minnesota as it enters its fourth season under the steady hand of Jerry Kill. This team opened 2013 with an 8-2 mark, running off four Big Ten victories in a row for the first time since 1973. But the Gophers lost their last three games. Still, this looks like Kill’s most talented team yet. That’s good because a daunting schedule waits with trips to TCU, Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin. As well as visits from Iowa and Ohio State. Get our latest football tour coverage: Here are my thoughts from the Golden Gophers’ practice.
