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. The Badgers trip to the Buckeyes highlights an abbreviated four-game slate, half of which includes nonconference games (Northern Illinois at Purdue; Miami (OH) at Illinois). Get all the storylines, matchups and my rankings of Week 5 games in this post.

Week 4 preview: Spartans will try to solve Irish

I’m continuing my early week-by-week look at the 2013 Big Ten schedule, and it’s all about Week 4 today. Being the final week before Big Ten play kicks off across the conference, the slate leaves some to be desired. That said, there are a few intriguing games, including an early Big Ten draw (Purdue at Wisconsin). Get all the storylines, matchups and my rankings of the week’s games in this post. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 preview | Week 3 preview ] Game of the week: Michigan State at Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are hot coming

Week 3 preview: Hundley v. Martinez Part II

Yes, the 2013 football season still is two-plus months away. That won’t keep me from looking ahead and taking an in-depth look at each and every week’s top matchups and storylines. I’m also offering my rankings of every week’s slate of games. Up now: Week 3, highlighted by Nebraska’s rematch vs. UCLA. [ RELATED: Week 1 preview | Week 2 preview ] Game of the week: No doubt, the visit from a rising UCLA program to Nebraska will be challenging. Last year’s trip to La-La Land was a nightmare for Nebraska. The Huskers allowed 653 yards in a 36-30 loss

Debate It: 2013 Big Ten interception leader?

No category, it seems, is more difficult to predict on a yearly basis than interceptions. Sure, we know who the best cover guys are in the league every year, but that’s not always who finds himself on top of the leaderboard. Last year, there was a quartet of guys who led the Big Ten, with four interceptions. Only Landon Feichter returns from the group. Will he repeat in 2013? Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina offer their picks. INTERCEPTIONS 2012 leader: Devin Smith, Wisconsin; Travis Howard, Ohio State; Michael Carter, Minnesota; Landon Feichter, Purdue – 4 2013 returning leader: Landon Feichter,

Twitter: NCAA '14 team ratings raise some eyebrows

You know it’s summer when video game ratings receive as much attention as they did Tuesday afternoon. The reason for all the talk? NCAA ’14 team ratings were released, and a few of the grades were a bit interesting. Like Iowa receiving an 88 overall, the same as reigning Legends Division champ Nebraska and Wisconsin and higher than Northwestern (86), which returns most of the nucleus from a 10-win season. Here’s how the Big Ten teams stack up: 1. Ohio State 95 (97 offense, 92 defense) T-2. Michigan 91 (91, 92) T-2. Michigan State 91 (90, 93) T-4. Iowa 88

Week 2 preview: Try not to miss Notre Dame-Michigan

Hey, who isn’t looking forward to football season? It’s only June, but I’m itching for kickoff and am starting to look ahead to each week of the 2013 season. From Week 1 to Week 12, I’ll offer the best each week has to offer and rank every week’s games. Up now: Week 2, highlighted by Notre Dame at Michigan. [ RELATED: Read all of Dienhart’s super-early 2013 weekly schedule previews ] Game of the week: Notre Dame comes to Michigan for a primetime game.

Week 1 preview: NU-Cal should be good one

It’s time to take a week-by-week look at the 2013 Big Ten schedule. Interesting storylines, matchups and battles within the battles dot each week’s slate of games. Up first, of course: Week 1. Get my opening week preview in this post. Game of the week: NU hasn’t played Cal since beating the Golden Bears in the Rose Bowl after the 1948 season—which before last season was the Wildcats’ only bowl victory. Well, look here: Northwestern opens at Cal. And it will be daunting. The Golden Bears have a new coach in Sonny Dykes, whose high-flying offense is tough to prep

Athlon predicts Michigan-Ohio State B1G title game

Get familiar with your team’s bitter rival, Michigan and Ohio State fans. Athlon Sports picks the Buckeyes and Wolverines to meet in the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game, meaning the two powerhouse programs would face off in back-to-back weeks (Nov. 30 at Michigan Stadium; Dec. 7 at Lucas Oil Stadium) for the first and last time. [ AthlonSports.com: Big Ten Football 2013 Predictions ] Athlon predicts Ohio State to sweep its way to the Leaders Division crown, finishing two games ahead of three-time reigning Big Ten champ Wisconsin (6-2). As for Michigan, the magazine pegs it to finish 6-2,

Dienhart: Big Ten backup QB rankings

Often, the most popular player on campus is the backup quarterback. The guy holding the clipboard and wearing a baseball cap typically is perceived as being the answer to every struggling offense. On that note, here’s my ranking of the Big Ten backup quarterback situations. 1. Northwestern. Actually, the Wildcats have two starters: senior Kain Colter and junior Trevor Siemian. It doesn’t really matter who begins the game under center. Colter typically gets the call, starting 12 of 13 games last season. But Siemian plays often in what is the rare two-quarterback system that thrives. 2. Ohio State. Senior Kenny
