So, the much-scrutinized and analyzed Ohio State quarterback position just drew into greater focus now that Braxton Miller is moving to receiver, news SI's Pete Thamel broke late Thursday night.
How good would that guy be at basketball? If you’re an avid sports fan, chances are you’ve probably asked yourself that very question when watching a college football game, or vice versa. Last year, around this time, I wrote a story about if Big Ten basketball players could form a football team. Now, let’s flip the switch. I went ahead and put together a starting five and a sixth man made up of current Big Ten football players. There are so many good choices, so if I missed one, tweet me @BTNSean. Here we go!

Who is the best coach in college football today? It’s the million dollar question, one that doesn’t necessarily have one correct answer. But while numerous college football minds argue their points, I’m going to settle this the old-fashioned way and let the numbers do the talking. I considered a list of the guys who many believe to be the top coaches in college football and calculated numbers based on five important categories (1. winning percentage; 2. first-place finishes; 3. bowl record; 4. 10-plus win seasons; 5. national championships).

It was a thankless task, but someone had to do it. Someone had to take a stab at ranking each and every Big Ten league game—all 56--in 2015.
The countdown to the start of the 2015 Big Ten football season is on. In 44 days, Minnesota will kick off the college football season with a primetime matchup against TCU. Big Ten fans can expect to see plenty of new faces on the gridiron this season. Last year, we saw the likes of Justin Jackson and DaeSean Hamilton have huge seasons as true freshman. But, did you know neither Jackson or Hamilton were ranked in the top 100 players in 2014 recruiting rankings? This got me thinking about how highly-ranked freshmen have performed since arriving in the Big Ten.
Former Ohio State guard Shannon Scott helped lead the San Antonio Spurs to the Las Vegas Summer League championship on Monday. [ MORE: Get all of our coverage of Big Ten professionals ] Scott went for two points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals in the Spurs’ 93-90 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

The Big Ten saw three potentially impactful coaching changes after 2014, with Michigan (Jim Harbaugh for Brady Hoke), Nebraska (Mike Riley for Bo Pelini) and Wisconsin (Paul Chryst for Gary Andersen) altering leadership. But other schools made more subtle changes to their staffs that could have big impacts on their fortunes this fall. Here are the five biggest additions–listed alphabetically–to existing Big Ten staffs. Tim Beck, Ohio State. He pushed the buttons on some good offenses at Nebraska before landing in Columbus as co-offensive coordinator. Beck will work with Ed Warinner, who assumes coordinator chores after Tom Herman left to become
We all have dream vacations. Some of us would like to go to Aruba. Others to Spain, Australia or perhaps Japan. All good choices. But no trip could possibly top this dream junket through the 2015 Big Ten schedule.
The 2015 college football awards watch lists are in - all 16 of them - and the Big Ten is well represented. All 14 Big Ten teams had at least one player on one of the lists, and 13 had multiple representatives.
