Video Gallery: Removing Joe Paterno's Statue

BTN aired a live special report Sunday on the removal of the Joe Paterno statue after airing a special report earlier in the morning. Dave Revsine and Gerry DiNardo were in studio, Rick Pizzo was in State College, and they were joined by Tom Dienhart, Glen Mason, and Howard Griffith by phone. Here’s a collection of videos from our Sunday coverage on a day when workers lifted the 7-foot-tall statue off its base and used a forklift to move it into Beaver Stadium as the 100 to 150 students watching chanted, “We are Penn State.” [Tom Dienhart: Remember lessons, not

Reader Mail: Can Spartans drop Wolverines again?

You have questions. And, of course, I have answers. It’s time for my latest Big Ten Mailbag and my readers brought some solid questions this week. What’s on your mind? Football, naturally. In this week’s edition, I’m asked if Michigan State can continue its dominance over instate rival Michigan and if a Big Ten city could bid for the national championship game? See all of my answers to your questions in this post. And, as always, thanks for all of the questions! Please tell me that Indiana will beat Indiana State in the season opener? – Ben You have to

Big Ten Daily Links: See Friday's best clicks

It’s Friday … it’s late July … but the Big Ten football news never sleeps. DELANY TALK: If the Chronicle of Higher Learning has its way, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany could be given the power to fire coaches. Crazy. The report had the nation stirring. Of course, this is all in response to the revelations in the Freeh Report on the Penn State scandal, which exposed a cover up by the university leaders—including Joe Paterno–of horrific sex crimes of former coach Jerry Sandusky. Empowering Delany may sound good in theory, but how would a conference commissioner know what’s going

Dienhart: Wednesday's top Big Ten web links

A look at the Big Ten football headlines on this Wednesday. BIG TEN’S BEST: This just in: ESPN’s says Michigan’s Denard Robinson is the Big Ten’s best quarterback. In other news, water is wet. The more interesting debate is who is No. 2? ESPN has Iowa’s James Vandenberg slotted there. Good call. And Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is No. 3. Hmmmm. Is Miller better than Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez? WHAT ABOUT MATT? Speaking of quarterbacks, Penn State’s Matt McGloin may not be the best or the prettiest in the Big Ten, but he’s likely the best the Nittany Lions have. And,

Debate It: Discussing 9-Game Schedule Idea

Now that the Big Ten and Pac-12 decided to put the kibosh on its scheduling plan across all sports, the Big Ten has a decision to make when it comes to future football schedules. Will the conference remain at eight conference games, or will it move to nine? Prior to the previous announcement with the Pac-12, it looked like the Big Ten was entertaining the latter. BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina give their separate thoughts on the merits of an eight- and nine-game conference slate in this post. Tell them what you think the
