The more I really dig into each week of the 2012 Big Ten college football season with my schedule analysis, the more excited I get about football.

Unit Rankings: 2012 Big Ten Quarterbacks

Every championship team needs a good quarterback. And it’s also helpful to have a decent backup, as injury often is commonplace in this era of running signal-callers. Knowing that, which Big Ten team has the best quarterback situation? I rank the Big Ten quarterback situations, from 1 to 12, in my first installment of Big Ten unit rankings. Tell me what you think by posting your thoughts in the comment box at the bottom of the post. 1.

Wednesday's Links: Let's talk Heisman Race

The calendar hasn’t even flipped to June, but some already are talking Heisman Trophy. Why not? I found one writer who lists his top candidates. Read what he wrote and tell me what you think. Here we go: Steve Greenberg of Sporting News offers an early Top 7: 1. Matt Barkley, QB, USC 2. Denard Robinson, QB, Michigan 3. Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin 4. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia 5. De’Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon 6. Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State 7. Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU Hard to argue with that list. And, yes, having Robinson ahead of Ball isn’t such

Dienhart: Big Ten Assistants Primed To Move Up

In recent years, several assistants have gone directly from Big Ten schools to launch head coaching careers. Wisconsin and Michigan State have been the most fertile proving grounds of late as Pitt’s Paul Chryst (Wisconsin offensive coordinator) and Northern Illinois’ Dave Doeren (Wisconsin defensive coordinator) came directly from Bret Bielema’s Badger staff the last two seasons. Miami of Ohio’s Don Treadwell (Michigan State offensive coordinator) and Central Michigan’s Dan Enos (Michigan State quarterbacks coach) came from Mark Dantonio’s Spartan staff in recent years. Others who recently have made the jump directly from Big Ten staffs to head coaching positions: Florida
