Dienhart: Time for college sports to join real world

I have to admit: Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports hit the nail on the head with his recent piece about the NCAA not seeing the totality of the picture when it comes to the future of intercollegiate athletics. In sum, not all college sports are equal. It’s time to acknowledge that and take appropriate actions to a model that is woefully outdated and unfair. It’s time to exit fairytale land and embrace the cold, hard fact many don’t want to embrace in this popsicle-for-everyone-world: LIFE ISN’T FAIR. Not everything and everyone is created equally. So, they shouldn’t be treated as

Did you see this? Russell Wilson takes photo with MJ

Russell Wilson earned quite a reputation during his standout senior season at Wisconsin. Now, fresh off a Super Bowl Championship, Wilson has become one of the most popular athletes on the planet. Want proof? Wilson recently went golfing with the great Michael Jordan and posted the following photo on his Instagram account. Great time with Michael Jordan today. Greatest of all time… Great golfer too! Haha A photo posted by Russell Wilson (@dangerusswilson) on Apr 4, 2014 at 2:19pm PDT Does this qualify as a selfie? Either way, this is what it looks like when basketball and football royalty unite.

Mailbag: Your tourney, spring football queries

There is a lot going on in the world of Big Ten sports. And, my email inbox reflects that. So, let me get to some of your most pressing queries as March is about to melt into April. Can you believe it? [ MORE: Badgers dominant in win over Baylor | Big Ten Greeks: Badgers in the zone ] I am very happy to have Maryland and Rutgers join the Big Ten.

Wisconsin approves raise for Gary Andersen

The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents has approved a new compensation package for Gary Andersen, the team announced Monday in a press release. The new package calls for a salary increase to $2.2 million for 2014 with a $100,000 increase each year during the life of the five-year deal. The increase, according to Wisconsin, will not be funded with tax or tuition dollars. Here’s what Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez said in the release: “I first began to consider an adjustment to Coach Andersen’s compensation package toward the end of the 2013 season,” Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry

Photo: Wisconsin team store sells '#KARMA' shirt

Wisconsin fans will appreciate a shirt for sale at a store across from the University Book Store. It’s a simple red shirt with “#KARMA” across the chest, an obvious dig at former coach Bret Bielema’s wife, Jen Bielema. Jen famously tweeted “#karma” after the Badgers lost early last season at Arizona State, the controversial game in which the officials let time expire on Wisconsin’s final drive in enemy territory. At the time, the Bielemas and Arkansas were feeling confident, with the Razorbacks jumping out to a 3-0 record in the coach’s first season since leaving Madison. Arkansas would go on

BTN experts discuss early signing day idea

On Tuesday’s #BTNLive show Mike Hall, Gerry DiNardo and Stanley Jackson had a length discussion examining the positives and negatives of an early signing period in college football. Right now, prospects can’t sign a letter of intent with any school until the first Wednesday in February, a day when football offices are busy and fans track every announcement. If an early signing period were to be established, high school players wouldn’t have to wait until February and could make their verbal commitments official at an earlier date. Watch DiNardo, a former coach, and Jackson, a former player, discuss the ramifications

Sorry, Coach Saban: 10-second rule is tabled

Thank goodness the 10-second rule proposal was tabled. You see: Alabama’s Nick Saban doesn’t always get his way. The proposed change—made in the name of player safety and trumpeted by Saban–would have put the brakes on those fun, fast-paced offenses that have become the rage in college football. Instead, the NCAA Football Rules Committee has tabled the directive one day before the NCAA’s 11-member playing rules oversight panel was slated to vote to make the proposal a rule for 2014. The Big Ten school that would have been impacted the most by this change would have been Indiana, where Kevin
