BCS flashbacks: Our top BCS-era teams by school

Last week, I presented my list of the Top 10 Big Ten teams from the BCS era. Many of your responded with, ahem, passion – you can always reach me here. So, let’s keep the ball rolling. Think about any of the 12 programs during those BCS seasons and consider which teams jump to the front of your mind. In some cases, it’s harder than one might think. Here are my picks for the top team from each Big Ten school during the BCS era, which ran from 1998-2013. Illinois, 2001. Ron Zook’s 2007 team that went 9-4, was led

Dienhart: My top 10 Big Ten running backs for 2014

Northwestern received great news Tuesday, as running back Venric Mark was granted a medical hardship for a fifth season of eligibility. Mark’s return bolsters what will be a strong collection of running backs in the Big Ten in 2014. Here’s my ranking of the conference’s Top 10 backs for next season. Before I get to my list, there’s more on Mark. The Wildcat speedster was limited to three games last fall while battling multiple injuries. He played for the last time on Oct. 12 at Wisconsin, leaving in the first quarter with a fractured ankle that sidelined him for the

Dienhart: Should college football dump the PAT?

It was interesting to watch to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell talk about various issues recently on NFL Network. One idea he said the league is studying is dropping extra point kicks after touchdowns – just see the NFL Network video here. Would the college game ever consider dumping PATs? It may be worth considering and studying. How good are pros at making PATs? In 2013, NFL kickers hit 1,256 of 1,261 extra points, a cool 99.6 percent accuracy rate. That’s as close to automatic as you can get. The only play duller during a game is when the quarterback takes a

BTN LiveBIG: Russell Wilson impacting communities

Russell Wilson is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the NFL, a dynamo on the ground and through the air. This weekend, he will lead the Seahawks against Seattle’s , the rival San Francisco 49ers, with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line. But there’s something beyond a shot at a Lombardi Trophy that motivates Wilson. In 2012, Wilson founded the Russell Wilson Passing Academy, designated as a football camp for children ages 9-17 who play all positions on the football field. The Cincinnati native’s goal in starting the program goes further than just teaching the fundamentals of

One look back at Big Ten's best BCS era teams

The BCS era is over, and to me that is a very good thing. The era ran 16 seasons stretching from 1998-2013. As a way to celebrate the end of the BCS and with an eye on the first college football playoff after next season, I present to you my 10 best Big Ten teams of the BCS era. Agree? Disagree? State your case in the comments section below or drop me a note for my mailbag. And if you want a sneak peek at 2014 preseason rankings, I wrote about one I found a little while ago, but it’s

Dienhart: A look at Big Ten early enrollees

National Signing Day is Feb. 5th, but schools have been inking mid-year prospects for a few weeks in the early-signing period. And today is the deadline. The Big Ten will welcome 51 newcomers, who all are enrolled and able to go through winter conditioning and spring ball. Illinois leads the way with nine mid-year enrollees. Michigan and Ohio State each have brought in seven. Indiana has six, while Penn State and Wisconsin have five. Iowa and Northwestern have the fewest mid-year additions with just one each. Among the newcomers are 10 junior college transfers. Illinois leads the way with four

Four B1G products make ESPN's All-BCS-era team

Sixteen years later, the BCS is dead. Florida State won the final BCS title earlier this month, but next season it will be all about the new four-team College Football Playoff. To recognize the end of an era, ESPN.com recently posted its All-BCS-era team. Four Big Ten players made the cut. The final list includes a pair of Badgers and Buckeyes. Former Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh also made the list. Here’s what ESPN.com said about each player.

Daily links: 10 Big Ten stories to know Thursday

This just in on the Penn State coaching search: San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman reportedly interviewed for the post on Monday. Wow, he’s a busy guy, as the 49ers have a playoff game at Carolina this weekend. So, if you are keeping track, James Franklin, Mike Munchak and Larry Johnson are in the mix. Oh, and it looks like Franklin has an offer on the table. This thing may end soon. Very soon. *** The big news that hit yesterday was the firing of Michigan offensive coordinator Al Borges. But, really, it wasn’t news. I think we all

How much is your Big Ten football team worth? A lot!

How much is your Big Ten football team worth? Thanks to a recent study by Ryan Brewer, an assistant professor of finance at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus, we have an idea. Let’s state the obvious: every Big Ten program is worth a lot. But, Michigan ($688.5 million) and Ohio State ($674.8) lead the Big Ten and only trail Texas ($875) and Notre Dame ($811.5). Editor’s note: In the first version of this story, we incorrectly used last year’s study and numbers. The error has been fixed.
