Tom Dienhart offers one post-camp takeaway for all 14 Big Ten teams

The 2015 BTN camp tour is over after 17 days crisscrossing the interstates from Lincoln, Nebraska, to Piscataway, New Jersey.

Here are my final thoughts from each stop: ILLINOIS Good energy at Camp Rantoul—along with some good teaching. QB Wes Lunt looked good, but coming up with explosive/big plays may be a challenge. The RB spot is especially worrisome. The d-line looks better equipped to stop the run. No more big plays.

Here is one prediction for every position group heading into the season. QB: J.T. Barrett will win the

BTN LiveBIG: A 'B1G' showing in top 50 international engineering schools

BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota grad dreams up designs that make a difference

Design was always a part of Brice Aarrestad’s life. Even as a kid, when he considered a career as a policeman or marine biologist, he would sketch out his dream houses for those professions. But today, this Minnesota alumnus is applying his design skills to a different kind of dream — raising the fortunes of the central African nation of Uganda with artisanal furniture.

All told,
