Not all non-conference schedules are created equal, as you can see from my rankings, from 1-12, of the Big Ten non-league menus. Some are high calorie. Some are low-calorie. So, who has the toughest slate? And the easiest? Find out in this post. You can find all of my Big Ten football coverage here. Oh, and if you like rankings like this, you’ll want to check out this archive, where I’m ranking 2012 games, players and schedules.

Coach DiNardo's Spring Tour Impressions

BTN lead football analysts Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith recently completed their spring trek across Big Ten country, and now it’s time for the impressions from the trip. Lucky for us, DiNardo is a dedicated tweeter. See some of Coach’s thoughts from his travels in this post. Spring Football Tour over.

Dienhart: "The Game" in the spring, too?

Clemson’s Dabo Swinney is a genius–at least when it comes to spicing up spring football games. Let’s face it: These spring “games” often are little more than glorified scrimmages to appease and tease fans. The interest? Minimal—aside from the true cognoscenti. Many coaches don’t like them, preferring to run a scrimmage or just conduct another practice for fear of injury. Lack of depth is another reason many coaches don’t like intrasquad scrimmages, as it often makes it difficult to split teams into even squads. So, how can we spice these spring games up? Well, Swinney proposes to have the NCAA

Rank It: Is It Football Season Yet?

One of the best things about college football bowl games is the inter-sectional matchups we typically never get to see. Well, it’s only April but the Big Ten features some non-conference games that already have the look and feel of bowl games. So I compiled my top 15 non-conference football games coming our way next fall, the first in a series of occasional off-season “Rank It” posts. But what fun are rankings if we don’t get some other points of view? So take a look at the upcoming football schedules for all 12 football teams inside and then tell the

Indiana, Purdue spring football video

Like much of the Midwest, Indiana experienced terrible weather Saturday. In fact, it got so bad in the Hoosier State that both Indiana and Purdue were forced to cancel their spring game and scrimmage indoors. The weather affected our broadcasts of the events, to the point where we can’t re-air the games on BTN tonight, as originally scheduled. Instead, we’ll show Purdue’s 2011 win over Ohio State at 7 p.m. ET and Indiana’s 2007 bowl-clinching win over Purdue at 9. Watch our Indiana video now and get a handful of Purdue packages in this post. Here’s to hoping the weather

Dienhart: What I learned Saturday

Spring football games broke out across Big Ten territory Saturday afternoon, with Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Northwestern and Purdue all in action. Weather played a big role all day, forcing the Hoosiers and Boilermakers inside and resulting in Nebraska canceling its game. Find out what I learned from Saturday’s action in this post. Also, don’t forget to check out our Big Ten spring roundup. 1. Indiana may have found a big-play maker in sophomore running back Isaiah Roundtree, a Morehead State transfer who has a different gear than guys like Stephen Houston and D’Angelo Roberts. Look for all of these

Spring game Central: Purdue

The Purdue football had its annual spring game canceled due to inclement weather Saturday afternoon. The Boilermakers moved the festivities indoors and practiced in front of former players and media.

Dienhart: Ten Spring Things To Watch For

Spring games offer fans that first opportunity to sneak a peek at their team. What are the key areas of concern? And are they being filled? Or will a lot of work remain in the fall? Don’t expect any big resolutions, as coaches typically play things very pedestrian and vanilla so as not to show opponents anything new they are working on that could be compromising down the road. Nonetheless, in no particular order I present ten things to watch for during the seven Big Ten spring games taking place his Saturday at Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern, Indiana and
