Video: You have to see these new BTN commercials

Five years ago, there was our memorable recruiting ad. You know, the one with Big Ten coaches on the couch trying to convince you to play for them. This year, we have an equally great set of spots to promote our Saturday football coverage, from pregame to postgame. The ads once again feature the coaches, only this time in more of a coaching role. See all three ads in this post.

Dienhart: Penn State QB race still on

Penn State released its first depth chart of the season this morning—and there is no No. 1 quarterback listed. Instead, Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien has an “or” between Tyler Ferguson and Christian Hackenberg. What’s it mean? America may not discover the identity of Penn State’s starter for this Saturday’s season opener vs. Syracuse in East Rutherford, N.J., until he walks under center for the first offensive snap of 2013. I honestly don’t know why this has to be drawn out any longer, do you? It’s not like Penn State will gain some schematic edge over Syracuse. Ferguson and Hackenberg
