Five B1G teams land in Coaches Top 25

The release of the USA Today coaches poll is another indicator of how close we are to beginning basketball season. I was not shocked to see five Big Ten teams ranked in the new poll: 2. Michigan State, 9. Michigan, 10. Ohio State, 21. Wisconsin and 24. Indiana. I thought Michigan State could have merited being the No. 1 team in the nation. Alas, Kentucky got that honor. But the Spartans are loaded with the likes of Gary Harris and Adreian Payne. They didn’t bypass the NBA draft to finish second. And don’t forget about Branden Dawson. Here are a

Four B1G programs appear in ESPN's "top two-sport schools"

It is no question that football and basketball rule the world of college athletics. Ohio State is considered a “top-notch” national powerhouse when it comes to college football, and the same can be said about Michigan State when talking about college hoops. But what schools are dominant in both sports? Our friends over at ESPN the Magazine recently published an article titled “The Undisputed Two-Sport Champ,” which uses a detailed formula to determine which college programs rule both football and basketball. The formula takes the following three factors into consideration: On-field success (which accounts for 50 percent of the final

Gophers' Wally Ellenson wins gold in high jump

Wally Ellenson entered Minnesota last year as a noted leaper. We saw a few glimpses of the 6-foot-4 guard’s athleticism on the hardwood during his freshman season. Here’s one example. And another.
