You have questions, I have answers in my weekly mailbag. There is a lot going on, with the NCAA tourney at the Sweet 16 stage and spring football in full swing across Big Ten territory. Which of the four Big Ten teams has the best shot to reach the Final Four? What will Wisconsin do at quarterback? I address those questions—and more—in this week’s mailbag.
After six weeks of non-conference play, the Big Ten softball schedule opens this weekend for all 12 teams. Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State and Purdue all host conference-opening series this weekend.
Northwestern all-time leading scorer John Shurna made 274 3-pointers during his illustrious career. He isn’t done yet. While the triples won’t count on the final ledger, Shurna will be flinging 3s in the State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships at the Final Four, it was announced Tuesday.
Spring football is in full swing across the Big Ten. And each day, BTN.com will be the place to stop by for your daily gridiron fix as we roll toward spring games in April. BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart will provide analysis, previews, videos and Q&As—among other things.
All season, the computer rankings said that the Big Ten was the nation’s strongest conference. The league lived up to that hype through the first week of the NCAA tourney. Four of the six schools that received bids are still playing, with No. 1 Michigan State, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 4 Indiana and No. 4 Wisconsin advancing the second weekend of the tourney. No. 4 Michigan fell in the second round to No. 13 Ohio, while No. 10 Purdue lost in the third round to No. 2 Kansas.
The votes are in, and we’ve reached the second round of BTN.com’s 2012 Big Ten football uniform bracket. Much like the NCAA tourney, there were a couple early upsets, including No. 10 Illinois taking down No. 3 Ohio State. Not to be outdone, No. 9 Purdue also stunned No. 4 Nebraska. Check out all the first-round decisions. Also, cast your Round 2 votes in this post.
