Dienhart: Wildcats offense clicks

Hope is floating at a high level in Evanston for what may be Pat Fitzgerald’s best Northwestern team yet. In fact, it may be the school’s best team since the 1995 squad that marched to the Rose Bowl. The Wildcats have some swagger as they put the wraps on spring practice, as Fitz prepares for—can you believe this?—his eighth season leading Northwestern. And, it could be special. Very special. Watch the entire Northwestern spring game on BTN2Go, and read my observations for a team coming off a 10-win season, five postseason trips in succession and first bowl win since the

Spring Preview: Wildcats packed with talent

Hopes are high in Evanston. Northwestern is coming off its first bowl victory since toppling Cal in the Rose Bowl after the 1948 season, winning 10 games for just the third time in school annals and first since the 1995 Rose Bowl squad. Now, the possibilities seem endless for what could be Pat Fitzgerald’s most talented team yet at his alma mater. NU has been to a bowl each of the last five seasons and has a legit chance to win the Legends Division if the defense continues to make strides this spring.

Dienhart: My top Big Ten spring questions

Spring football is in full bloom in the Big Ten, from Lincoln to State College. Many issues must be decided between the conclusion of spring drills and the start of the season. But, most won’t be resolved until fall camp. Until then, here are the 18—yes, 18–biggest Big Ten spring questions. 1. How will the Michigan offense look with Denard Robinson gone? We got an extended peak last season, when Robinson dealt with injury that forced Devin Gardner to take the controls. And, the results were promising. Coordinator Al Borges will implement more of his pro- and West Coast-style, taking

Team up: Ranking football & hoops coaching combos

Fun item from esteemed ex-colleague David Fox of Athlon Sports on the top football/basketball coaching tandems in the nation. Topping the list: Ohio State’s duo of Thad Matta and Urban Meyer. Michigan’s duo of Brady Hoke and John Beilein is No. 2 in the nation, according to Athlon. Here is how Athlon ranks the Big Ten tandems. Hard to argue with Fox putting Matta and Meyer on top. Matta has taken Ohio State to two Final Fours, three Big Ten tourney titles and a share of five regular-season crowns. Meyer won two national titles at Florida and debuted with a
