NO. 1 RIVAL TALK: Michigan State fans won’t like to hear this: Wolverine coach Brady Hoke says Michigan’s top priority is to beat Ohio State—not Michigan State. And, yes, Hoke knows the Spartans have dumped the Wolverines each of the last four seasons. And, Buckeye fans can’t like Hoke’s continued insistence on calling Ohio State “Ohio.” In reference to Michigan’s rivalry with the Buckeyes, Hoke said: “The Ohio game’s the Ohio game.” Man, I love this stuff! DENARD’S PRO PROSPECTS: Speaking of Hoke, he believes

Big Ten hands out 2012 Medal of Honor winners

The Big Ten Conference office announced its 2012 Medal of Honor winners Thursday, honoring 24 student-athletes from 13 different sports. One of the most prestigious conference awards in college athletics, the Big Ten Medal of Honor was first awarded in 1915 to one student-athlete from the graduating class of each university who had “attained the greatest proficiency in athletics and scholastic work.” The 12 institutions of the Big Ten Conference feature nearly 10,000 student-athletes, more than any other conference, and only 24 of those individuals are recognized each year with the Big Ten Medal of Honor.

Take a quick spin around the Big Ten to get your Wednesday football fix. You won’t regret it. In fact, it’s 100 percent guaranteed. McGLOIN IS NO. 1: Matt McGloin recently was named starting quarterback at Penn State over Rob Bolden. Now, McGloin is letting it be known how he felt about the quarterback rotation between him and Bolden last season. McGloin: It was “a killer.” I agree with McGloin, who says a team has to believe in its quarterback and needs a clear-cut starter. As many coaches say: If you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks. That is

Tuesday's links: Big Ten Columnists discuss playoff

The college football world was abuzz with analysis and opinion about the Big Ten’s stance on a playoff, which the conference discussed during a conference call on Monday. Listen to the audio now: In short, the Big Ten said it prefers the status quo BCS system over a four-team playoff. (I am shaking my head as I type this.) In fact, the league says it even likes a plus-one format better than a four-team playoff. (I am shaking my head faster now.)
