Big Ten question stumps 'Jeopardy' contestants

“Jeopardy” has been around for more than 50 years now. However, it’s not every day that Alex Trebek runs off a Big Ten-related question. That’s exactly what happened on Thursday, when this question was asked: “Now that Rutgers and Maryland are joining the party, the Big Ten Football Conference has X football members?” The result? None of the contestants had the answer. Andrea, the show’s returning champion, took a stab at it, guessing 12, which of course would have been the correct answer before Maryland and Rutgers joined. Once the buzzer sounds, Trebek responds: “I know, it sounds weird.” The

Penn State AD Dave Joyner announces retirement

Penn State Athletic Director David M. Joyner announced Tuesday his plans to retire. He has requested that his duties as athletic director end Aug. 1, and has offered to assist with the transition beyond that date. “It has been an honor and privilege to serve Penn State,” Joyner said. “Our student athletes, coaches, staff and the University community were a daily source of inspiration for me. The spirit of Penn State is strong, and the department’s commitment to integrity, as well as academic and athletic excellence is stronger than ever.” Joyner was named acting athletic director in November 2011.

Building the ultimate 2014 Big Ten quarterback

The Big Ten has featured plenty of great quarterbacks, including Drew Brees, Troy Smith and Russell Wilson, to name a few. But as good as these guys were, none of them were perfect in every area of the game. This got me thinking, what would my perfect Big Ten quarterback look like? You know, a quarterback with the ideal arm strength, size, speed, accuracy, smarts and ability to perform in the clutch. I chose six Big Ten quarterbacks and combined their skill sets (hypothetically, of course) to create one, ultimate Big Ten signal-caller. Here we go. [ MORE: Four Big

Best of Week 12: Rematch of 2012 Big Ten title game

There are two non-conference games tucked into this mid-November Saturday, which rarely happens this late in the season in the Big Ten. Northwestern’s trip to Notre Dame could be interesting.

The teams haven’t met since the Wildcats famously went to South Bend in 1995 and stunned the Fighting Irish, 17-15, behind Pat Fitzgerald. That was an opening salvo in
