Countdown to kickoff: West best coaching staff?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West best coaching staff? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Minnesota. Few staffs have the connectivity of this one. The cohesion was on full display last season, when the Golden Gophers didn’t skip a beat when Jerry Kill missed time to tend to his health. It all begins with coordinators Matt Limegrover (offense) and Tracy

Ranking the top Big Ten running back duos

Our BTN tour bus stopped in Madison, Wis., Friday to take in Wisconsin camp. While watching practice, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart sent out the following tweet about Wisconsin’s talented running back duo. It doesn't get much better than Corey Clement and Melvin Gordon, the best RB duo in the #B1G. #Badgers pic.twitter.com/0OnS9pFFbP — Tom Dienhart (@BTNTomDienhart) August 15, 2014 This got me thinking about the best duos in the conference. Are Gordon and Clement indeed the top duo? Get all of our latest rankings posts: Here are my rankings. 1. Melvin Gordon and Corey Clement, Wisconsin: Dienhart got it

Football Tour: Dienhart's best from Wisconsin

The Badgers have the ingredients for a strong team, but there will be much unproven talent coming back from a 9-4 team. There are just five starters back on offense and three on defense. Issues at quarterback, receiver and the front seven hang over the program. The good news: The vintage Wisconsin running game should hum along behind a monster line and terrific tailbacks in Melvin Gordon and Corey Clement.

Wisconsin camp preview: How does front 7 look?

The debut of the Gary Andersen regime was a successful one. Wisconsin started 9-2 and had some hopes of a BCS bowl before losing to Penn State in the season finale at Camp Randall Stadium. The Badgers also lost to South Carolina in Capital One Bowl. For Act Two, challenges loom for a program that is the pick of many to win the Big Ten West. Why not? This has been one of the Big Ten’s hallmark programs for over 20 years. Get our latest football tour coverage: Here are the questions I have as we head to Wisconsin practice.

Site ranks Ann Arbor No. 2 college town in America

Rankings are always fun. They’re even more fun in the summer, when we need something to debate until the games start. Well, bestcollegereviews.org posted a popular list ranking the best college towns that made its way around social media Thursday, and the Big Ten was all over it. In fact, the Big Ten owned two of the top three towns: Ann Arbor (No. 2) and Madison (No. 3). Boulder came in at No. 1, for the curious minds.
