Badgers-Boilers to play in Week 4 in 2013

Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema has long been a proponent of playing Big Ten games during the season’s first four weeks, and he’ll get his wish in 2013. Wisconsin announced Wednesday in a press release that it will host Purdue on Sept. 21, 2013 – also known as Week 4 – one week before the Big Ten typically starts conference play. “One of the things that I’m excited about is adding a conference game to that beginning four weeks of the schedule, much the same as the SEC does,” Bielema said in the release. “It’s similar to the SEC model,

Preseason Big Ten Player Rankings: Ball, Short on top

Big Ten media days kick off Thursday in Chicago, so I thought I’d release my preseason Big Ten player rankings. I’m going to do these a little different this year. In previous years, I’d rank the top 10 players, which often became a tough task with all the talent on both sides of the ball. To account for both sides, I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six? Well, because there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice-versa. OFFENSE 1. Montee Ball,

Mascot Update: Purdue Pete, Willie Answer Back

You may recall a few weeks ago when a band of Big Ten Conference mascots made a spoof video of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” video, the latest in a long line of spoofs. It was funny, it drew plenty of attention, and it all seemed innocent enough. That is, until someone noticed the video didn’t include Purdue Pete and Northwestern’s Willie the Wildcat. And now Pete and the ‘Cat have responded. Subsequent news coverage of the mascots’ initial viral video revealed that the omission of those two mascots was an unfortunate miscommunication between the mascot programs. Honestly, we

Debate It: Discussing 9-Game Schedule Idea

Now that the Big Ten and Pac-12 decided to put the kibosh on its scheduling plan across all sports, the Big Ten has a decision to make when it comes to future football schedules. Will the conference remain at eight conference games, or will it move to nine? Prior to the previous announcement with the Pac-12, it looked like the Big Ten was entertaining the latter. BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina give their separate thoughts on the merits of an eight- and nine-game conference slate in this post. Tell them what you think the
