Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 5

Quality over quantity was the theme Saturday in the Big Ten, which had just four games. The marquee matchup between Wisconsin and Ohio State lived up to its billing, as the Buckeyes reaffirmed that they are the best team in the conference. Iowa and Illinois also showed they mean business, as each program continues to surprise. Purdue? Well, it’s gonna be a long season in West Lafayette. See what I learned this Saturday. 1. Braxton Miller is A-OK. He essentially had missed the last three games recovering from a strained MCL in his left knee. Rusty? Out of synch? Off

How did we do? Week 5 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 6, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 5 Big Ten predictions. Big Ten fans and Sean Merriman both went 4-0, putting the former in sole possession of first place for the first time this season. Congrats, fans!

Power Rankings: Surging Iowa shoots up list

With six schools off and just four games that featured no upsets, there was little movement in my weekly Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Iowa was the biggest winner, jumping three spots from No. 9 to No. 6. Conversely, Minnesota fell like a rock from No. 6 to No. 10. Here is my latest Power Poll.

Tom's Take: Week 5 honors, grades, top 10 & more

There were just four games this Saturday, but that doesn’t mean there was any lack of action. Ohio State showed that it means business, and Iowa’s methodical victory at Minnesota sent a message: The Hawkeyes are over the doldrums of a 4-8 2012 season. Here is my wrap up on Week 5 in the Big Ten. Biggest surprise: Iowa. The Hawkeyes dispatched Minnesota with relative ease, using dominating play in the trenches on both sides of the ball to smother the Golden Gophers in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale. This shocked me. I thought Minnesota not only would have

Ohio State remains No. 3 in Coaches Poll

The latest Coaches Poll was released Sunday, and Ohio State remained No. 3 following its 31-24 victory over Wisconsin, which fell out of the poll. Northwestern comes in at No. 15, setting up a top-15 matchup Saturday night vs. the Buckeyes. Two other Big Ten teams are ranked in the poll: Michigan (No. 17); Nebraska (No. 25). Coaches’ Rankings Rankings as of 9/29/2013 Rank School Votes Prev Rank 1 Alabama (4-0) 1546 (59) 1 2 Oregon (4-0) 1479 (2) 2 3 Ohio State (5-0) 1397 3 4 Clemson (4-0) 1352 (1) 4 5 Stanford (4-0) 1325 5 6 Georgia (3-1)

Dienhart: OK, Ohio State, it's time to dream 'really big'

How good is Ohio State? The question was posed, oh, at least 14,328 times since the start of the season. The Buckeyes went 12-0 in 2012, the school’s first under Urban Meyer. Alas, NCAA probation kept the Buckeyes from competing for the Big Ten championship or going to the postseason. So, America never got to see if Ohio State was national title caliber. But now, unencumbered by sanctions, Ohio State’s possibilities are endless. And, after tonight’s 31-24 win over Wisconsin, the Buckeyes can begin to dream big. Really big.

U.S. Marine Corps: BTN.com Leaders of Week 5

Every Saturday night during the Big Ten football season, BTN.com posts its “U.S. Marine Corps: Leaders of the Week.” The feature is designed to honor some of the top individual Big Ten performances. Check out our Week 5 stars in this post. Nathan Scheelhaase, QB, Illinois. This senior signal caller set multiple passing records in Illinois’ 50-14 route over Miami (Ohio). Scheelhaase connected on 19-of-24 passes for 279 yards and five touchdowns, all of which came in the first half. His five touchdown passes tied a school record for the most TD strikes in a half. With the win, the

Photo: Did you see this photobomb of LeBron James?

LeBron James never went to college, but it sure seems like he’s an Ohio State product. That’s because the NBA superstar and the Buckeyes have formed a unique relationship. There’s the locker with his name on it at the basketball team’s new facility, there’s the talking to the football team before Saturday night’s game, and there’s the watching the game from Ohio State’s sideline. ESPN interviewed James, an Akron, Ohio, native, during the second quarter. It was a great interview and all, but the photobomb that occurred over James’ left shoulder really stole the show. Excellent stuff! Another Ohio State-James

Photo: Do you like Ohio State's Nike 'Rivalry' uniform?

If you didn’t hear, Ohio State is wearing a Nike “Rivalry” uniform for tonight’s primtime battle vs. Wisconsin. It’s very similar to the “Pro Combat” uniform the Buckeyes wore in last year’s win over archrival Michigan. In fact, the only difference is the jersey collar, which features seven Buckeye Leaves, a new design for all Ohio State uniforms.

There’s also reports they could wear the uniform, which features a lot more
