Daily links: 10 Big Ten stories to know Thursday

This just in on the Penn State coaching search: San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman reportedly interviewed for the post on Monday. Wow, he’s a busy guy, as the 49ers have a playoff game at Carolina this weekend. So, if you are keeping track, James Franklin, Mike Munchak and Larry Johnson are in the mix. Oh, and it looks like Franklin has an offer on the table. This thing may end soon. Very soon. *** The big news that hit yesterday was the firing of Michigan offensive coordinator Al Borges. But, really, it wasn’t news. I think we all

How much is your Big Ten football team worth? A lot!

How much is your Big Ten football team worth? Thanks to a recent study by Ryan Brewer, an assistant professor of finance at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus, we have an idea. Let’s state the obvious: every Big Ten program is worth a lot. But, Michigan ($688.5 million) and Ohio State ($674.8) lead the Big Ten and only trail Texas ($875) and Notre Dame ($811.5). Editor’s note: In the first version of this story, we incorrectly used last year’s study and numbers. The error has been fixed.

Season Review: Purdue, Hazell struggle in Year 1

First-year coach Darrell Hazell surely had no idea about the size and scope of the mess he was inheriting from the ruinous Danny Hope era. Hazell and Co., tried. They really did. But the talent level never has been lower in the history of the program. And, it showed in what was arguably the worst season in school history. Pick a stat—most any stat, really—and Purdue ranked near or in the cellar of the Big Ten. But these two sum up the pain and suffering perfectly: scoring offense, 14.9 ppg, 12th in the Big Ten scoring defense, 38.0 ppg, 11th

Thursday links: Forbes.com ranks football teams

This is a great place to start daily links. Forbes.com has ranked the “most valuable” college football teams of 2013. A pretty interesting exercise. The most “valuable” Big Ten franchise: Michigan at No. 5. Next is Ohio State at No. 9; Nebraska No. 10; Penn State is No. 15; Wisconsin is No. 16. I guess I am a bit shocked that Ohio State isn’t No. 1 among Big Ten schools. I don’t care what metrics you use, how can the Buckeyes not be No. 1? Oh, well. It doesn’t really matter. *** The most emotional sports moment of the year?

Clothes Call: A look back at new 2013 uniform designs

With the year quickly coming to a close, I decided to take a look at the new basketball and football uniform designs that debuted in 2013. Don’t worry, 2014 is certain to include just as many, if not more, new designs. Actually, I’m not so sure that’s a good thing. Either way, enjoy the look back. ILLINOIS Tim Beckman and Illinois showed off plenty of new designs in 2013. Prior to the season, the Illini unveiled a new orange primary helmet. It went on to wear a blue helmet, white jersey and blue pants combination for the first time ever,
