Bowl Projections: Dienhart's list post Week 2

The season is still in its infancy, so the bowl picture remains lucid. Very lucid. The Big Ten has tie-ins with eight bowls—and it has only 10 bowl-eligible schools, as Penn State and Ohio State are on NCAA and banned from the postseason in 2012. The Big Ten is coming off a tough Saturday that saw it go 6-6, losing to every “big” team it played: Oregon State, UCLA, Arizona State, Notre Dame, Iowa State and Virginia. The Big Ten’s wins came over Vanderbilt, New Hampshire, Air Force, UMass, Central Michigan, Central Florida. Not exactly a Murderer’s Row. [Related: 5

Week 3 Player Rankings: Braxton Miller moves on up

With Week 2 behind us, it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Again, I’m doing these a little different this year. Whereas I used to rank the top 10 players – a practice that was tough due to all the talent on both sides of the ball – I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six of both? Because it opens up the field, plus there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa. OFFENSE 1. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio

Tom's Top 10: Where's the Big Ten pride?

It was a tough Week 2 for the Big Ten. The conference limped to a 6-6 record, with Northwestern’s home victory over Vanderbilt being the crown jewel. See my 10 observations—some whimsical, some fact based, some opinionated—from Week 2. 1. Big Ten pride. Look, it took a big hit on Saturday. No amount of sugar can cover up the bitter taste. The conference went 6-6, going 0-3 vs. the Pac-12. Iowa State, Virginia and Notre Dame kicked the Big Ten, too. And wins? They weren’t exactly impressive: UMass, Central Michigan, New Hampshire, Air Force, UCF and Vanderbilt. So, the most

How did we do? Big Ten Week 2 predictions revisited

Before we turn our complete attention to Week 3, it’s time to look back at how we did with our Week 2 predictions. One week after Tom Dienhart, BTN.com fans and myself all went 11-1, the results weren’t as pretty. Dienhart and BTN.com fans both went 8-4, while I went 6-6, just like the Big Ten teams.

Dienhart: 5 things I learned in Week 2

Week 2 is in the books. It was not a great showing for the Big Ten, as it put up a 6-6 record. This from a conference that went 10-2 during the opening week. The competition was stiffer and there were more road tests, for sure, but the Big Ten needs to bounce back next week. What did I learn from Week 2 action? See the five biggest things I learned about the Big Ten on Saturday. 1. Wisconsin RB Montee Ball’s Heisman dreams may be over following a moribund effort in a 10-7 loss at Oregon State. Ball ran
