Season Review: It was a weird season in Lincoln

Weird. No other word better describes this season. The campaign dawned amid great promise, as Nebraska was coming off a Legends Division title. Much of that same talent was back, fueling hopes for the program’s first league title since 1999. Alas, the defense often looked a lot like it did in 2012, getting gashed for big yards/points after the staff made myriad vows to “fix things.” And the offense struggled to find a rhythm with quarterback Taylor Martinez succumbing to injury that limited him to four games. Sprinkle in plenty of drama surrounding Bo Pelini—the highlight being the mysterious release

Dienhart: Best of the Big Ten Bowls

So many bowls, so little time. That’s where I come in. Think of me as your bowl concierge. Time is precious.

Thursday links: Forbes.com ranks football teams

This is a great place to start daily links. Forbes.com has ranked the “most valuable” college football teams of 2013. A pretty interesting exercise. The most “valuable” Big Ten franchise: Michigan at No. 5. Next is Ohio State at No. 9; Nebraska No. 10; Penn State is No. 15; Wisconsin is No. 16. I guess I am a bit shocked that Ohio State isn’t No. 1 among Big Ten schools. I don’t care what metrics you use, how can the Buckeyes not be No. 1? Oh, well. It doesn’t really matter. *** The most emotional sports moment of the year?

Dienhart: My top 10 2013 football storylines

The Big Ten football season was filled with many headline-grabbing events in 2013. In fact, in some respects, it was a history-making year for the conference. Here are my top 10 storylines of 2013.
