Watch Penn State DT Anthony Zettel roundhouse-kick water bottle

Anthony Zettel is one of the Big Ten’s elite players and athletes. [ MORE: Like this story? Check out our full Gone Viral section ] The Penn State defensive tackle also likes to have fun, and do so on camera. Earlier this summer, Zettel tackled a tree, which drew more than its share of attention. Sunday night, he was back at it, this time roundhouse-kicking a water bottle out of a teammate’s raised hand in the Penn State locker room. Zettel kicked the bottle so hard that it nearly took out a teammate. Luckily, the teammate, believed to be Saquan

Tom Dienhart's top Big Ten East coach hires the last 40 years

Wednesday, I took a look at the best hires in the last 40 years at schools in the Big Ten West. Today, I do the same for the Big Ten East. INDIANA Bill Mallory. The farther we get from his tenure, the greater it looks. Mallory had all the flash of a pair of wing tips, a do-the-right-thing throw-back coach who forged the Hoosiers into a strong program built around a physical offense and honest-to-goodness defense. He went 68-77-3 (39-65-1 in the Big Ten) from 1984-1996 with six bowls after arriving from Northern Illinois to replace Sam Wyche—who was in

Big Ten players impersonate Meyer, Harbaugh & Franklin

Impersonations are great. Know what makes them even greater, funnier? When the impersonator knows the subject. [ MORE: Get to know Jordan Lucas | Get to know Drew Ott ] Big Ten stars Joshua Perry, James Ross and Jordan Lucas did impersonations of their respective coaches for ESPN at media days in Chicago. See it in the video embedded in the tweet above. Perry’s impersonation of Urban Meyer has to be the best. Nice work, Joshua! Perry also did a great job speaking on behalf of the players at media days:

Dienhart: Is the Big Ten on the brink of a golden age?

Indiana? Michigan State? Illinois? Minnesota? All the others? Hapless punching bags to the goliaths that were the Wolverines and Buckeyes, who routinely were ranked in the top five in the country while churning out myriad stars. Now, Ohio State and Michigan look primed to declare war again on the rest

Big Ten football players offer freshmen to watch this season

Late last week, I asked seven Big Ten players to give me a true freshman who has stood out to them thus far, and who could potentially make an impact in the upcoming 2015 season. Here is part two of the piece, featuring the picks for Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue and Rutgers. Jehu Chesson, Michigan: Alex Malzone, QB. He’s a cool kid. When he first came on campus, he already possessed a lot of things I personally look for in a freshman, especially when it’s a guy who’s going to be throwing me the ball. I look
