Where B1G teams rank in Preseason Power Index

Now that spring football is in the books, we are slowly starting to see preseason rankings trickle in for the 2014 season. Our friends over at ESPN recently created an automated set of preseason ratings for every team. The ratings are designed to predict how strong each team will be in the upcoming season. This is calculated using the Football Power Index, which according to ESPN is a predictive measure of team strength that uses the EPA breakdowns that correlate most with future results. The efficiency rankings are the point contributions for the Off/Def/Special Teams units to the team’s opponent-adjusted

How about a 10-game Big Ten football schedule?

You may have read recently about the Big Ten considering scheduling its own league schools as “non-conference” games as a way to fill out schedules in the future. I don’t know about you, but I was a bit surprised to hear that. And, I don’t like the idea. Instead, why not just have a 10-game Big Ten schedule? It’s a notion I made reference to in a recent story. The coaches may groan about it. But who else would? No one. Fans and TV would love it, because it results in an extra quality game every year and shortens the

ESPN: Big Ten approves 8-member officiating crews

According to ESPN.com, the Big Ten has agreed to increase its football officiating crews from seven officials to eight for all home games starting this fall. The added official, the center judge, will line up in the offensive backfield opposite the head referee. The Big 12 used eight officials last season and will do so again in 2014. Recently, the SEC and ACC have announced they will add an eighth official this fall. The last time the Big Ten increased its number of officials — six to seven —  was in 1983. “We’re looking for improved officiating — that’s the

Dienhart: Morgan Burke's right, it's time for stipends

Earlier this week, at the annual Big Ten spring meetings, Purdue AD Morgan Burke had some interesting—and refreshing–comments on the subject of the cost of attendance and player stipends. “It’s fundamentally the right thing to do,” Burke told reporters during the meetings at Big Ten headquarters in Rosemont, Ill. “It’s got to be done for men and women, it’s got to be done for Olympic sports and non-revenue sports. It’s the right thing to do. “The reality is, this is fundamentally fair. And so we’d better find the money. We find the money for lots of other things, we’d better

NCAA APR scores: Big Ten teams continue to shine

The NCAA released Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores Wednesday, and all Big Ten teams avoided penalties. Northwestern led the Big Ten in football (991), while Indiana men’s basketball was perfect for the fourth straight year (1,000).
