If time and money weren’t objectives, what Big Ten games would you go to this season? I have built the ultimate 2014 Big Ten schedule, dialing in the game you would need to be at each week. Call it “football nirvana.” See my weekly picks in this post.
James Franklin has been a headline maker since coming to Penn State. And rightly so. But if you look past the dynamic and flamboyant Franklin, you’ll find a strong coaching staff. And one of Franklin’s top assistants is defensive coordinator Bob Shoop.

So many good games to choose from, so little time … where to begin? That’s the conundrum when looking over the composite Big Ten schedule. There are a lot of very appealing games as the Big Ten begins its new 14-team era. Here are my top 50 games on the 2014 schedule.
The Big Ten will begin gearing up for the college football season on July 28-29 with the Big Ten Media Days and Kickoff Luncheon at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Chicago. The annual event features coaches and players from all 14 Big Ten schools and will mark the first official appearance of Maryland and Rutgers as members of the Big Ten.
The Big Ten is set to return a ton of talent at quarterback, but the same can’t be said at wide receiver. With names like Jared Abbrederis, Corey Brown, Quincy Enunwa, Jeremy Gallon, Cody Latimer and Allen Robinson all off to the NFL, there will be plenty of new names atop the receiving leader list.
