CHICAGO – BTN is dedicating the entire day of programing Friday to The Journey: Big Ten Football 2013 by replaying all 12 episodes.
The first day of summer is June 21. With the Big Ten athletic season complete, it is “summer,” for all intents and purposes. So, I decided to do something random – something I hoped would be fun – with Big Ten fans on Twitter. I asked them to pick two players, past or present, from their Big Ten team to use in a mythical Big Ten NBA JAM. See their selections in this post.
No matter team allegiance, Big Ten fans have to like what several members of the Ohio State football team did for Joshua Chambers, a 4-year-old Orlando boy with leukemia. Chambers, the son of an Ohio State fan, was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in February, 2013, and when linebacker Joshua Perry heard the news, he took action.

Two interesting clashes make this Saturday appealing, as Michigan plays at Michigan State and Ohio State goes to Penn State in a light week of action. Despite the presence of just five games, the heft of those aforementioned contests makes this a good week, as the Big Ten East race will start to take form. Here’s my best of Week 9.
Another light Saturday, as there are just five games with four teams enjoying byes. But the weekend isn’t without a big game, as the Nebraska at Northwestern tilt could be another doozy in what has been an exciting series that has seen the Cornhuskers go 2-1 vs. the Wildcats since joining the Big Ten. Here’s a breakdown of the best of Week 8.
The Ohio State football program held its Champions Dinner a couple weeks ago, and there’s a pretty fun YouTube video of the festivities. The dinner is something Meyer does every spring to reward his players for excellence on and off the field. They bond, they barbeque, and they play cornhole, dodgeball and softball. Basically, it’s a day full of fun.
Like several other stadiums across the nation, Ohio Stadium has undergone several renovations since the the 2013 season. Last month, the team added new field turf and unveiled renderings of a new locker room. The one fans will notice the most is nearing completion, and that’s the addition of approximately 2,600 seats to the south end zone.
