Listen to your Big Ten football coach

Each Tuesday morning during the Big Ten football season, the 12 Big Ten football coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio for each segment of the call here, and we do this every Tuesday afternoon. Also, @B1Gfootball spotlights a tweet or three from each coach on the call live on Twitter in case you want to follow along online.

How did we do? Week 1 Big Ten picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 2, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 1 Big Ten predictions. BTN’s Sean Merriman and Stephen Bardo both went a perfect 12-0 to pace the field, while Big Ten fans only missed the Iowa-Northern Illinois game. Nice work!

Dienhart: 10 things I learned in Week 1

It was a busy first week of action, as we saw coaches make debuts (Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen and Purdue’s Darrell Hazell) and quarterbacks, too (Iowa’s Jake Rudock and Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg). Here are 10 things I learned in Week One. 1. Special teams are special. A coach told me years ago that special teams always are an issue the opening week. Why? Schools usually don’t rep special teams live in training camp for fear of injury. Sure enough, we saw several big special teams plays/gaffes involving Big Ten teams. Minnesota blocked a field goal and ran it back for

Twitter: Get DiNardo's Week 1 Sunday Ruminations

Every Sunday during the Big Ten football season, BTN analyst Gerry DiNardo heads to Twitter to offer his “Sunday Ruminations.” Get DiNardo’s analysis of the Big Ten’s 10-2 opening first week in this post.

Dienhart: Michigan moves up in Week 2 power poll

We have one week in the books. How great is it to have football back in our lives? Really great. The Big Ten went 10-2 in the opening week, with the losses coming vs. Northern Illinois and at Cincinnati. How do I rank the Big Ten teams after one week? See my latest power poll, presented by ArcelorMittal, in this post. POWER RANKINGS PRESENTED BY 1. Ohio State. The Buckeyes ran out to a big lead—and then coasted home vs. overmatched Buffalo. No shame in that. Just don’t make a habit of it, Brutus. Last week: No. 1 Up next: vs.

Tom's Take: My Week 1 honors, grades, top 10 & more

One week is in the books. There was good, and there was bad. Good: Northwestern went to Cal and rallied for a big comeback win. Bad: Purdue looked awful in a rout at Cincinnati. Here are my thoughts, ruminations, honors, grades and numbers from an exciting and eventful opening week around the Big Ten. Biggest surprise: Northwestern taking it to Cal with a 44-30 victory in Berkeley. Yes, the Wildcats are supposed to be good. But they took it to the Golden Bears on the road, playing a physical brand of football and making big plays on defense. Northwestern sent

Twitter: Purdue QB Rob Henry apologizes for poor play

There were few positives to take from Purdue’s 42-7 season-opening loss at Cincinnati, and Purdue quarterback Rob Henry more than accepted his share of the blame for the performance. Hours after the game, Henry took to Twitter to apologize to the Purdue community and tell them that he was taking a break from Twitter “because there obviously needs to be a lot more work done.” Henry went 18-of-35 for 161 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in the loss. He did have a rushing touchdown, Purdue’s lone score on the day. Here are Henry’s tweets: I apologize to all my

Dienhart: Week 1 Questions? Yes. Answers? Not yet.

The Big Ten took the lid off the 2013 season last night, with Minnesota and Indiana recording resounding victories by registering point totals that would have tilted a pinball machine. The unveilings continue tonight, with Michigan State playing host to Western Michigan, and then the other nine schools play Saturday. Here are questions I have for each of the 10 schools yet to kickoff. [ MORE: Who wins Week 1 games? Pick your winners! ] ILLINOIS Will the Fighting Illini dominant a FCS foe? Well, maybe “dominate” is too strong of a word. I’ll settle for a “convincing” effort vs.

Photos: Big Ten fans honor College Colors Day

Today is College Colors Day, the day when people across the nation dress in their college school colors to celebrate the beginning of a new college football season. To be fair, the season kicked off Thursday night, with Indiana and Minnesota rolling to victories, and it continues tonight. But it’s all about celebrating that first Saturday of the season on the last work day of the week. To recognize the day, we went to Twitter and asked Big Ten fans to snap a shot of how they’re honoring the annual celebration. See some of the photos below. @BigTenNetwork all of
