Terran Petteway: 'Everybody is going to be coming for us'

When one thinks of Nebraska athletics, there is an immediate thought that likely comes to mind: Football. Don’t tell that to the Nebraska men’s basketball team. The Cornhuskers are coming off an impressive 19-13 season, which saw the program make its first NCAA tournament appearance since Bill Clinton was President. The Huskers were picked to finish fifth in the Big Ten in our BTN.com poll of league beat writers. Nebraska is also ranked No. 21 in the nation heading into this season, according to a USA Today preseason poll, which was released on Thursday. In just two seasons under Tim

Dienhart: There are bonafide high expectations at Nebraska

His first two trips to Big Ten media days, Nebraska coach Tim Miles was out of the spotlight. Sure, he was always good for some comic relief. He even took out his cell phone once and snapped a picture of the assembled media and tweeted it. The media was in love. No doubt, Miles always left an impression as a personality. But the Nebraska team he coached didn’t create much of a stir. In fact, the Cornhuskers were picked to finish last in the Big Ten the last two years. “Well, yeah. You guys haven’t got it right yet,” chided

Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell highlights stong freshman class

The Big Ten has a number of touted freshmen entering the league this season. There’s Indiana’s James Blackmon, Maryland’s Melo Trimble and Northwestern’s Vic Law, to name a few. But the best of all may be Ohio State’s DeAngelo Russell, the favorite to be Big Ten Freshman of the Year. According to some recruiting services, Russell was the No. 3 shooting guard in the nation. He also is the 11th McDonald’s All-American inked during the Thad Matta era. “I think with D’Angelo, all I can say right now is I’m very pleased with how he’s playing in practice, the strides

Best of Week 8: Don't miss Nebraska at Northwestern under the lights

Some interesting games dot the Big Ten map, including a key West Division tilt with Nebraska visiting Northwestern (watch on BTN/BTN2Go) and an interesting intra-divisional clash with Iowa at Maryland. And could we see an upset when Purdue visits Minnesota? Here’s a look at the Best of Week 8. BEST GAME: If the last three games are any indication, the Nebraska at Northwestern clash should be memorable. The Wildcats tallied a 28-25 win in Lincoln in 2011 behind backup quarterback Kain Colter. The Cornhuskers returned the favor in 2012 with a stirring 29-28 comeback in Evanston, after trailing 28-16 in

Video: Look back at the Big Ten Media Day men's press conferences

BTN & BTN2Go aired the 2014 Big Ten Basketball Media Day live on Thursday. The Big Ten Media Day TV show will air again at 8 p.m. ET Thursday. Video of each coach’s press conferences is also posted inside this post. A topic of conversation at Big Ten Media Day was the new scheduling format, which was necessitated with the additions of Maryland and Rutgers to make the Big Ten a 14-team league. League teams will play five double-plays and eight single-plays each season. It will be a true rotation without protected rivals or preference to geography. Previously, Big Ten

Season ahead: Three big questions for each Big Ten men's basketball team

Are you ready for basketball season? It’s on our doorstep, with Big Ten Media Day 2014 here (watch live on BTN2Go.com) and the season right around the corner.  The Big Ten storylines are plentiful: Wisconsin looks again to reign supreme, Michigan State moves on without stalwarts Adreian Payne and Gary Harris, and great expectations await Nebraska. There also are plenty of questions as a new era of 14-team hoops begins with the addition of Rutgers and Maryland. As I begind to straddle two sports in the busiest time of year, here are my three questions for each school. Tell me
