Clothes Call: Purdue to bring back helmet stickers

Nike, it seems, makes slight changes to Purdue’s uniform nearly every fall. Recently, there’s been the unpopular decision to redesign the train logo, not to mention the “P” logo, and the odd transition from Old Gold, the school’s secondary color, to more of a khaki hue. [ RELATED: Nebraska to wear new alternate uniform vs. UCLA ] Well, with Darrell Hazell replacing Danny Hope, the Boilermakers figure to make changes of their own for the 2013 season. Like, bringing back helmet stickers, which were a staple during the successful Joe Tiller era. The team confirmed it will bring back helmet

Dienhart: Ranking 2013 Big Ten noncon schedules

Schedule strength will become more vital beginning in 2014, when the four-team playoff is started. Why? Because a major component of the playoff team selection process figures to be schedule strength. So, cupcakes are on the way out. But, until then, many remain. Just look at the non-conference schedules. Here is my ranking of the Big Ten non-conference schedules.

The 2013 football season may still be two-plus months away, but that won’t keep me from taking an (early) in-depth look at each and every week’s top matchups and storylines.

Dienhart: My Big Ten stadium rankings

Athlon Sports has another awesome list. This time, the Nashville-based company ranks the Big Ten stadiums. Yes, it’s a highly subjective list. No shock to see Ohio Stadium on top, followed by Penn State’s Beaver Stadium and Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium. And it was good to see Wisconsin’s Camp Randall No. 4 over Michigan Stadium. But there are a few things I would tweak. Here are my Big Ten stadium rankings: 1. Ohio Stadium, Ohio State: Loud, proud and crammed in. No place like it. 2. Memorial Stadium, Nebraska: No fan base has more passion or dedication. 3. Camp Randall Stadium,

Debate It: 2013 Big Ten tackles leader?

Tackles are an inexact science, to be sure. Teams award them differently, so it’s not always as simple as comparing Player A from School A to Player B from School B. Whatever the case, the Big Ten returns several of its top tacklers, including 2012 leader Anthony Hitchens. Who will lead the Big Ten in tackles this fall? Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina offer their picks in this post. TACKLES 2012 leader: Anthony Hitchens, Iowa – 124 2013 returning leader: Anthony Hitchens, Iowa – 124 Tom: Ryan Shazier, Ohio State – If you thought Shazier was good last season as

Week 5 preview: Badgers-Buckeyes rule four-game slate

If Big Ten football fans have a wedding to attend this fall, they probably hope it lands on Week 5 – aka Saturday, Sept. 28. Unless, maybe, you’re an Ohio State or Wisconsin fan.
