Who has easiest B1G schedule, based on 2013 records?

Who will have the easiest Big Ten conference schedule in 2014, based on last year’s records? Wisconsin, followed by three fellow Big Ten West teams. Jesse Temple of FOX Sports Wisconsin did the calculations. The combined 2013 league record of Wisconsin’s eight 2014 Big Ten foes is 22-42 (.343 winning percentage). Not having to play Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State and Michigan from the Big Ten East helps. A lot. The Badgers’ cross-division foes are Rutgers and Maryland. Here’s a look from 1-14 of each team’s 2014 Big Ten schedule ranked on the 2013 won-lost record of its opponents.

Northwestern players vote on union question

In a historic vote, Northwestern football players cast secret ballots Friday on whether to form the nation’s first union for college athletes – a decision that could change the landscape of American amateur sports. “You got to give the people what they want!” one of the players shouted at reporters, who were kept away from the players as they entered a campus building to vote. Some waved and another busted out dance moves. [ MORE: Read all of our unionization coverage ] Results of the unprecedented vote won’t be revealed any time soon.

#BTNLive: Jim Delany on NCAA proposal

The NCAA’s board of directors took the first step toward shifting power to the five largest football conferences on Thursday, endorsing a 57-page plan that calls for giving 65 of the nation’s biggest schools more autonomy in how to fund scholarships, handle health care and decide other increasingly hot-button issues involving their athletes. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany appeared on Thursday’s “#BTNLive” to discuss the latest developments, and you can watch that entire interview in this post. If approved later this year, schools in the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC could implement some rules on their own

Northwestern union vote coming up on Friday

To unionize or not to unionize. That’s what Northwestern players will vote on Friday in what could be a watershed event in the annals of college sports. Many have speculated that the players will reject the union, based on some public comments by a few Wildcats and the fact Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald has spoken out against it and has counseled players that a union isn’t in their best interest.

College sports could step into future on Thursday

On Thursday, the NCAA Board of Directors is expected to OK a new model of how its organization is run. Bottom line: major changes appear to be coming, as it appears the NCAA is trying to get a lot of this done to thwart multiple lawsuits vs. the Indianapolis institution and also to unplug the union movement. A big anticipated change: The five power conferences are expected to be given autonomy from other leagues. [ MORE: BTN/BTN2Go announces 2014 prime-time football schedule ] What’s it mean?
