Dienhart: My most important Week 1 Big Ten games

Not all season-opening games are created equally. Some are more difficult and critical than others. Yes, you never want to put too much stock into one game. Still, the first game of the season is bigger and more important for some teams than it is for others. With the season fast approaching, here is my look at the seven most fascinating season openers. 1. Northern Illinois at Iowa. The Hawkeyes’ struggles are well-documented. Iowa has gone from 11 wins in 2009 to eight, to seven to four. You don’t need to have a degree in statistics to see the trend

SI's Mandel predicts Michigan vs. Ohio State B1G title game

If you want to see Ohio State and Michigan play on back-to-back weeks, you’ll like Stewart Mandel’s 2013 Big Ten football preview. Mandel, who released his preview Tuesday, picks Ohio State to beat Michigan in the Big Ten title game, one week after losing at Michigan. [ SI.com: Ohio State, Michigan lead 2013 Big Ten conference preview ] While Mandel doesn’t have the Buckeyes going unblemished – as many other experts predict – he’s still very high on Urban Meyer’s team. After all, he predicts Braxton Miller (Offensive MVP), Ryan Shazier (Defensive MVP) and Dontre Wilson (Impact Freshman) to take

Purdue names veteran Rob Henry starting QB

Rookie Purdue coach Darrell Hazell made official what everyone suspected when he named fifth-year senior Rob Henry the starting quarterback. Henry has been taking the majority of the snaps with the first team throughout training camp, as he has battled redshirt freshman Austin Appleby and true freshman Danny Etling. In the end, the 23-year-old Henry’s maturity, dual-threat capabilities and superior command of the Boilermaker offense apparently gave him the edge. Known as more of a runner than a passer, Henry has shown an improved arm during training camp operating coordinator John Shoop’s multiple offense. [ AP: Purdue tabs Rob Henry

Twitter: 2013 Big Ten football breakout players?

The topic of breakout players can be an ambiguous one. For example, some people view Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah as a 2013 breakout player. Others, meanwhile, feel that with 1,315 total yards and 10 scores a season ago, he’s well past “breakout” territory. I tend to side with the latter. Either way, I went to Twitter and asked Big Ten fans for their 2013 breakout candidates. Before we move on to the fans’ picks, here are my top candidates: Devin Funchess and Melvin Gordon on offense and Adolphus Washington and Shilique Calhoun on defense. To be fair, my offensive picks had

Video: Purdue players show off diving 'skills'

David Boudia the Purdue football players are not. This comes as no surprise, but it’s even more evident after the team hit up the pool following Tuesday’s two-a-day. There, players took turns jumping off the diving boards, some taking it semi-seriously and others going for the best belly flop. Hilarity ensued, and the PurdueSports YouTube page has the video of it. This is great stuff. Want to see a good dive, one that Boudia would be proud of? Find it here, courtesy Brandon Cottom. How about arguably the worst dive? Right here, from Cody Webster. And then, there’s Johnny Daniels’

Dienhart: In Hazell, Purdue has bright future

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue ran a spirited practice Monday that moved in a well-organized fashion. Darrell Hazell is strong presence who floated from group to group, but he tends to gravitate to the offense—his background. There was more hitting in the Boilermakers’ camp this season than last under Danny Hope. I came away impressed with a lot for a program that seemingly has a bright future. [ PROGRAM ALERT: Watch the Purdue Preview Show at 8 p.m. ET Aug. 19 on BTN/BTN2Go ] The quarterback derby continues. Rob Henry ran with the “ones.” He’s a senior with starting experience who

Phil Steele releases 2013 Initial Power Ratings

The highly respected Phil Steele released his 2013 Initial Power Ratings on Friday, and the list is certain to get the attention of Big Ten fans. For starters, Big Ten preseason favorite Ohio State lands at No. 4, behind reigning national champ Alabama, Oregon and Texas A&M. Ohio State fans won’t like that. Nebraska? The reigning Legends Division champ comes in at No. 27, and is the fifth (!) Big Ten team. [ PhilSteele.com: 2013 Initial Power Ratings ] Before you get too upset, understand that this is just one of Steele’s nine sets of power ratings. He refers to
