Dienhart: Big Ten Snap Reactions To Early Games

With two Big Ten games under my belt from Thursday and Friday, I locked in on the four early Big Ten games Saturday. Here are my Snap Reactions, where I list the three things I learned from each game. What did you learn? Come tell me in the comment section at the bottom of this post. Ohio State 56, Miami (Ohio) 10 1. The Urban Meyer era got off to a nice start with a dominating effort. The Buckeyes fell behind 3-0 in a lackluster first quarter and then outscored the RedHawks, 56-7. The new spread offense totaled 538 yards

Penn State Falls in Bill O'Brien's Debut

Penn State coach Bill O’Brien led the charge in the first home opener without Joe Paterno since 1949, his players behind him, storming the Beaver Stadium field as more than 97,000 fans kicked off a new chapter in the program’s tarnished history with a raucous and sustained ovation. But the Nittany Lions wore down in the second half, and Ohio, from the Mid-American Conference, upset Penn State, 24-14. [AP: Sue Paterno attended season opener.] [ Get your first look at Penn State jerseys with names on the back] It was a sad ending for a devoted fan base that came

First look: Penn State jerseys with names on back

Ever since Bill O’Brien announced Penn State would include last names on the back of its jerseys this fall, people have wondered what it will look like. On Saturday morning, a couple of hours before Penn State’s season opener vs. Ohio, @PennStateFball tweeted a picture of the jerseys hanging in the Penn State locker room. This is certain to be a sensitive issue for Penn State fans. Some will love it, saying it’s time to move on from the Joe Paterno era, while others will say it goes against Penn State’s rich tradition. After all, the program has never had

Penn State fans gather for annual Football Eve

Friday night marked the annual Penn State Football Eve at Beaver Stadium, and for several reasons, this pep rally was different than all the ones before it. For the obvious reason, this was the first event without head coach Joe Paterno, who was fired late last year and died months later. On top of that, the Penn State fan base has really rallied around this team and coach Bill O’Brien in the wake of the NCAA sanctions that crippled it this offseason. And, as expected, the traditional cheer of “We Are … Penn State” roared through the stadium on a

Something to laugh about: BTN bloopers

Five years sure goes fast, doesn’t it? On Thursday, BTN celebrated its 5th anniversary, and to help acknowledge the big day, Mike Hall and Rick Pizzo hosted “BTN 5th Anniversary Special.” It was a memorable show that looked back at all the great moments from our time on the air. From the plays we’ll never forget to the players we’ll always remember, we considered it all. We even had a fun bloopers reel, which you can watch right here. Dive inside to read tweets and see more videos from our celebratory feature. Happy Anniversary @BigTenNetwork -an amazing 5 yrs. It's

Revsine's Numbers: Back for a Big 2012

The biggest number at the BTN offices today is 5 – as in our five-year anniversary. The years have flown by – though some of the days have been a bit arduous. That’s the nature of any kind of new venture. I was reflecting this morning on my first meeting with the BTN people. Frankly, I wasn’t sure how interested I was. I really didn’t understand what it was going to be. But then-Executive Producer Leon Schweir, President Mark Silverman and Commissioner Jim Delany all blew me away with their vision for this place. By the time I left, I
