Twitter: 2013 Big Ten football breakout players?

The topic of breakout players can be an ambiguous one. For example, some people view Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah as a 2013 breakout player. Others, meanwhile, feel that with 1,315 total yards and 10 scores a season ago, he’s well past “breakout” territory. I tend to side with the latter. Either way, I went to Twitter and asked Big Ten fans for their 2013 breakout candidates. Before we move on to the fans’ picks, here are my top candidates: Devin Funchess and Melvin Gordon on offense and Adolphus Washington and Shilique Calhoun on defense. To be fair, my offensive picks had

Dienhart, on Badgers: 'This is still Wisconsin'

MADISON, Wis. – No doubt about it, Gary Andersen will possess plenty of talent in his first season at Wisconsin. In fact, ex-coach Bret Bielema often pointed toward 2013 as being a potentially big season for a program that has gone to the last three Rose Bowls. On Thursday, the defense had a big edge on the offense, as camp legs appear to be setting in.

'Johnson Rod' reference? Dienhart wins Twitter

We sent senior writer Tom Dienhart on the BTN Football Tour to provide analysis from every Big Ten camp. He’s done so through the first three stops.

Jim Delany & Urban Meyer

Q&A: Thanks for joining us on the bus, commish!

When it comes to traveling, Jim Delany is the best. The Big Ten commissioner hitched a ride on the BTN bus during the first three stops—Indiana, Ohio State and Penn State–of our tour of training camps. He sat quietly on the back of the bus, surfing his iPad, reading, relaxing. And thinking. I’m sure the most powerful man in college sports is always thinking. It’s one of the things that makes Delany a collegiate icon who has been at the forefront of reshaping and transforming collegiate sports in his 25 years as Big Ten commissioner. His list of accomplishments is
