One look back at Big Ten's best BCS era teams

The BCS era is over, and to me that is a very good thing. The era ran 16 seasons stretching from 1998-2013. As a way to celebrate the end of the BCS and with an eye on the first college football playoff after next season, I present to you my 10 best Big Ten teams of the BCS era. Agree? Disagree? State your case in the comments section below or drop me a note for my mailbag. And if you want a sneak peek at 2014 preseason rankings, I wrote about one I found a little while ago, but it’s

Dienhart: A look at Big Ten early enrollees

National Signing Day is Feb. 5th, but schools have been inking mid-year prospects for a few weeks in the early-signing period. And today is the deadline. The Big Ten will welcome 51 newcomers, who all are enrolled and able to go through winter conditioning and spring ball. Illinois leads the way with nine mid-year enrollees. Michigan and Ohio State each have brought in seven. Indiana has six, while Penn State and Wisconsin have five. Iowa and Northwestern have the fewest mid-year additions with just one each. Among the newcomers are 10 junior college transfers. Illinois leads the way with four

BTN LiveBIG: Purdue premiere

Tonight, the 2014 LiveBIG season continues with the Purdue episode premiere, after the Boilermakers take on the Fighting Illini in Big Ten men’s hoops action. In November, the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University hosted 27 veterans from 15 states in the school’s fifth National Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program. During the week, the veterans are immersed in a rigorous program to help them follow dreams of business ownership. Purdue University alumni, entrepreneurs, faculty, staff and students volunteer to engage with this special group of men and women. The veterans also had the opportunity to attend a Purdue football practice,

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
