Countdown to kickoff: West best uniform?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West best uniform? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other countdown features: Tom Dienhart: Nebraska. I just like the classic simplicity of the “N” helmet, which is iconic. Too conservative for you? Well, the school has introduced some alternate looks to spice things up. Still, the iconic basic red jersey and white pants are difficult to top. *** Sean Merriman:

Four B1G teams land on ESPN's top 25 Power Rankings

With the College Football Playoff era upon us, ESPN.com decided to assemble a 13-member committee to create its preseason Top 25 Power Rankings. Four Big Ten teams made the list, headlined by Ohio State (No. 6) and Michigan State (No. 7), last year’s Big Ten title game participants. Wisconsin came in at No. 17, and Nebraska No. 22. ESPN’s top 5, you ask? It looks like this: 1. Florida State; 2. Alabama; 3. Oklahoma; 4. Oregon; 5. Auburn. Here’s what they say about the Big Ten teams: No. 6: Ohio State Phil Steele, on Buckeyes: “Urban Meyer has yet to

What the O'Bannon ruling means for college sports

The NCAA’s model for amateurism took another hit with Friday’s ruling that the NCAA violated anti-trust law in the Ed O’Bannon suit. This, ladies and gentlemen, is maybe the most important ruling in the history of the NCAA. But things may not be as bad you think for the NCAA. In essence, this ruling says the NCAA no longer can prevent schools from giving student-athletes money based on their names, images and likenesses (NIL). It also isn’t allowed to impose a salary cap below $5,000. That money can be put in a trust. The NCAA scored a win, however, in

Judge rules against NCAA in O'Bannon lawsuit

(AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that the NCAA can’t stop college football and basketball players from selling the rights to their names and likenesses, opening the way to athletes getting payouts once their college careers are over. In a landmark decision, U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in favor of former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon and 19 others in a lawsuit that challenged the NCAA’s regulation of college athletics on antitrust grounds. She issued an injunction prohibiting the NCAA from enforcing its rules on money given to athletes when it comes to their names, images and likenesses.

Nebraska suspends DB LeRoy Alexander for season

(AP) Nebraska defensive back LeRoy Alexander has been suspended for the 2014 football season. The Nebraska Athletic Department made the announcement Friday and did not give a reason for the suspension. Alexander will remain on scholarship and will be allowed to practice with the team. [ MORE: AP: Nebraska loses DB Jackson (knee injury) for season ] Alexander was expected to contend for significant playing time at safety. The sophomore played in all 13 games last season at safety and on special teams. He made 27 of his 34 tackles in the last six games. The Lincoln and university police

Autonomy for 'Power 5' is here, so what's next?

We saw this coming. It was no shock that the NCAA passed legislation that grants autonomy to the “Power Five” conferences. In fact, it probably had to happen for the current collegiate model not to be comprised. In essence, the richest and most powerful 65 schools from the nation’s top leagues—Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, ACC, Pac-12–now will have power to enact rules that are pertinent to the high level they function at, giving athletic directors and student-athletes a larger role in the legislative process. The new structure likely will go into effect in 2015. [ MORE: NCAA.org: Board adopts

Top 10 offensive players B1G teams will face in 2014

If you take a look up and down the Big Ten, you will find a number of high-profile offensive stars. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is a two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah are both preseason All-American candidates at running back, and Iowa offensive tackle Brandon Scherff is being talked about as the top pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. While it is clear the Big Ten is stacked on offense, so, too, are many of its non-conference opponents. Some of college football’s elite playmakers fill the non-conference slate with names

Jack Hoffman needs second round of chemotherapy

Everybody’s favorite Nebraska football fan Jack Hoffman’s brain tumor has grown and a second round of chemotherapy is required, Hoffman’s father Andy wrote on his web site. Hoffman delighted the nation with his memorable 69-yard touchdown run in the 2013 Nebraska spring game. After the run, Hoffman became a celebrity, meeting President Obama, receiving an Upper Deck trading card and winning an ESPY. Here’s a portion of Andy’s letter on Jack’s health: “Today we were humbly reminded that when your child has an inoperable brain tumor, that anything can happen at any point in time.  Despite Jack’s tumor being declared
