Twitter: Your name ideas for new bowl at Ford Field

The Big Ten and Detroit Lions reached a six-year agreement Wednesday for a bowl game at Ford Field, starting next season. The bowl, which will debut Dec. 30, 2014, has yet to be named. Naturally, I went to Twitter to ask fans for their ideas. They didn’t disappoint. For what it’s worth, the previous bowls at Ford Field were the Motor City Bowl and Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl.

The inaugural game is tentatively scheduled for December 30, 2014 (pending TV broadcast schedule). “We are thrilled to be hosting a new bowl game in Detroit that will be anchored by an annual commitment from the Big Ten,” said Detroit Lions

Dienhart: My All-Big Ten Offense since 2000

The 2000s saw plenty of great players in the Big Ten. One, in fact, won the Heisman: Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith (2006), who arguably is the top player from the 2000s. Over the next couple days, I’m going to take a look at the best of the best in the Big Ten since the calendar flipped to 2000. First up: Offense. Before I get to the list, I have a couple rules:  1. A player had to play at least two seasons to be considered; 2. Nebraska players prior to 2011 are not eligible. [ RELATED: See Dienhart’s All-Big

Feeling smart? Take Bill Carollo's officials' exam

I attended a clinic for officials in the Big Ten, MAC and MVC last weekend in the Chicago area. During one part of the clinic, Big Ten director of officials Bill Carollo gave attendees an exam to complete. Here is a copy (with the answers) of the exam I received. Take a look at the questions—and feel free to test the college football rules knowledge of your friends and family.

BTN's Dave Revsine to emcee Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon

The Big Ten Conference announced Tuesday that Dave Revsine, BTN’s lead studio host, will serve as emcee for the 2013 Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon, presented by Allstate and BMW, on Thursday, July 25 at the Hilton Chicago. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. ET, with the players and coaches autograph and photo session for fans attending the luncheon, which starts at 12:30 p.m. Revsine will be joined at the Kickoff Luncheon by each of the 12 Big Ten head football coaches and 36 of the conference’s top returning players. Revsine will sit down with the coaches in groups of three to discuss

Bill Carollo: 'We have to change behavior'

Big Ten officials coordinator Bill Carollo didn’t hesitate when I asked him what the point of emphasis was going to be for officials this fall: blows targeted above the shoulders at defenseless players. “If it happens,” Carollo said, “the player will be automatically ejected from the game.” And if officials have any doubt if a hit violated the guidelines, they have been told: “When it doubt, throw him out.” Does that seem harsh? Last year, such an infraction resulted in a 15-yard penalty. But, these are new, evolving times. And player safety is the No. 1 goal of the Big

Big Ten's best football traditions? Here's a fun list

The Big Ten is as steep in tradition as any of the nation’s conferences. Considering that, it’s a dubious task to try to rank the top traditions. Athlon Sports was bold enough to give it a stab, and like many people, it thinks Ohio State’s dotting the “I” is the cream of the crop. See the publication’s list in this post. [ Ranking the Big Ten’s best historic traditions ] Here’s what Athlon said about the Ohio Stadium staple: “The culmination of “Script Ohio” during the pre-game festivities at Ohio State is a sight to behold.

Big Ten releases 2016 & 2017 conference slates

Back in April, the Big Ten announced it was going to implement a nine-game conference schedule, starting in 2016. Thursday, it unveiled the first such schedule—along with the 2017 Big Ten league slate. [ RELATED: 2016 conference slate (PDF) | 2017 conference slate (PDF) ] One thing fans will notice in the 2016 and 2017 schedules is conference games being played earlier in the season. Previously, league games typically didn’t begin until October—depending on calendar quirks. But the extra league contest has pushed Big Ten action forward in the calendar, as schools will drop from four to three non-conference games

Who wins Leaders vs. Legends All-Star Game?

With the 2013 MLB All-Star Game less than a week away, I recently got to thinking about a Big Ten football all-star game. You know, a game that pits the Leaders Division’s best vs. the Legends Division’s best. Who would be on the teams, and who would win? See both teams, which were constructed using Phil Steele’s 2013 preseason teams, in this post.
