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.

See both teams, which were constructed using Phil Steele’s 2013 preseason teams, in this post.

2013 B1G writers' football uniform power rankings

What’s better than your typical Big Ten football uniform power ranking? A uniform ranking decided by 12 Big Ten writers, that’s what. BTN.com recently asked a writer for every school to rank the conference’s uniforms, from 1-12. We asked the writers to consider the uniforms as a whole, factoring in home, away, alternate(s) and helmet(s). Editor’s note: The final ranking was determined using point totals (12 points for No. 1 ranking; 1 point for No. 12 ranking; etc.) and it is listed in order, from most points to fewest points.

On this date: Jim Delany becomes Big Ten commish

On July 1, 1989, Ohio Valley Conference commissioner Jim Delany took the helm as commissioner of the Big Ten Conference. The then-41-year-old Delany became the fifth commissioner in Big Ten history, succeeding the retiring Wayne Duke, who held the position for 18 years. Duke, now a member of the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, notably spearheaded the growth of men’s basketball through the expansion of the NCAA tournament. Duke was also at the forefront of affirmative action within the conference and the increased inclusion of women’s sports. Since Delany took over, Penn State and Nebraska have joined the conference,
