Dienhart: Hope never got Purdue over proverbial hump

After four seasons, Purdue has seen enough of Danny Hope. He officially was fired Sunday. The school also announced wide receivers coach Patrick Higgins will serve as the interim coach for the team’s bowl game. Hope, who receives a $600,000 buyout, compiled a 22-27 overall record and 13-19 Big Ten mark, never getting the program over the proverbial hump after following the glorious Joe Tiller era. This was supposed to be the season that happened, as Hope said this was his best team yet with more starters returning than any other Big Ten squad. Alas, it didn’t happen. “I wish

Final power rankings: Ohio State finishes No. 1

This is the final edition of the 2012 Big Ten power rankings. And it’s pretty clear who the two best teams in the Big Ten are: Ohio State and Nebraska. Alas, they can’t meet in the conference title game, as the Buckeyes are on probation. But Ohio State finished 12-0, including a 63-38 win over the Cornhuskers in Columbus earlier this season. So, the Buckeyes must be best, right? [RELATED: Big Ten Player Rankings] See the final power rankings in the photo gallery below.

And this one was close, being tied 35-35 late before Purdue scored three touchdowns in a four-and-a-half minute span to seal the victory and win the Old Oaken Bucket

Purdue 56, Indiana 35: Photos, videos & recaps

Akeem Shavers broke open a close game with three scores during a 4½-minute span in the fourth quarter, giving Purdue a 56-35 victory over archrival Indiana on Saturday. Robert Marve threw for a career-high 348 yards and four touchdowns in his final home game – a win that made the Boilermakers (6-6, 3-5 Big Ten) bowl eligible for the second straight year, the first time that has happened since 2006-07.

What to do with Big Ten divisions?

As BTN’s Gerry DiNardo mentioned during Tuesday’s coverage of Rutgers joining the Big Ten, there are three variables to consider when creating the conference’s new divisions: 1. Competitive balance; 2. geography; and 3. rivalries. Right now, no one knows how the new divisions will look, and that includes commissioner Jim Delany. Said Delany on the rumors out there: “Those are news to me.” The only thing that’s a guarantee is there will be change. Whether it’s moving Illinois to the Legends and throwing Maryland and Rutgers into the Leaders – one of the popular rumors – or something else, we’ll

Dienhart: My Week 13 bowl projections

The Big Ten bowl picture continues to solidify. Nebraska remains the favorite to get to the Rose Bowl. But with Notre Dame—my projection last week to play the Huskers in Pasadena–now projected to play in the BCS title game, the Cornhuskers have a new foe: Oregon. Michigan (Capital One) and Wisconsin (Outback) remain poised to play in Florida on New Year’s Day. And Northwestern (Gator) also looks to be in prime position to join them after beating Michigan State.
