Dienhart: Reaction to preseason Coaches Poll

The coaches poll came out today—and there weren’t many, if any, surprises. Five Big Ten teams are ranked: No. 2 Ohio State; No. 17 Michigan; No. 18 Nebraska; No. 22 Northwestern; No. 23 Wisconsin. Alabama is No. 1. The Crimson Tide return a loaded roster from a national championship team. Alabama is college football’s “it” program, winning three national championships in the past four seasons. Any school that wants to win the last BCS title before a playoff begins in 2014 likely will have to walk through Nick Saban’s Tide. Ohio State could be that team. Coming off a 12-0

Study: Ohio State has Big Ten's 'best' football fans

Congratulations, Ohio State football fans! According to Emory Sports Marketing Analytics, the Buckeyes have the Big Ten’s “best” fans of the last 10 years. [ Emory.edu: Ranking the ‘best’ football fans in the Big Ten ] During the 10-year period, Emory’s study revealed, the Buckeyes generated 20 percent more revenue than No. 2 Penn State and No. 3 Michigan, in addition to averaging 2.5 more wins per season.

Mailbag: Huskers' win total & more targeting talk

The season is about a month away. That’s music to my ears. And from the volume of my mail, I can tell you all are getting excited, too. Let me reach into my mailbag and answer some of your questions. Keep the cards and letters coming. I love hearing from you all. I like your best-case record scenario for Nebraska, except the Michigan loss. I believe your worst-case scenario should be a little worse than stated. I would have the Huskers also losing to Michigan State and Penn State in my worst-case scenario. This would make them 7-5. Not very

Podcast: Tom Dienhart talks B1G with Lost Lettermen

BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart recently sat down with Jim Weber, of LostLettermen.com, for a podcast to discuss the 2013 Big Ten football season. Find a link to the full podcast here. Among the topics, Dienhart provided his thoughts on 2013 breakout candidates, who will meet in the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game, why Nebraska is the Legends Division favorite, and whether Braxton Miller can win the Heisman Trophy. Here’s what Dienhart said about breakout candidates: “You know, I think one of the two running backs at Illinois: Josh Ferguson and Donovonn Young. I think that new offense of

Dienhart: My picks to win Big Ten QB battles

There are several Big Ten quarterback situations that are rock solid as teams enter training camp. Without a doubt, Braxton Miller will start for Ohio State; Taylor Martinez for Nebraska; Kain Colter for Northwestern; Devin Gardner for Michigan; Philip Nelson for Minnesota; and Nathan Scheelhaase for Illinois. And Andrew Maxwell will begin as Michigan State’s starter, but he has a tenuous grip on the job. Who will win the other five jobs? Here are my predictions for Indiana, Iowa, Penn State, Purdue and Wisconsin. INDIANA Tre Roberson broke a leg vs. UMass last season in the second game of the

Did You See This? Bret Bielema takes dig at Ohio State

Well, it looks like former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema just can’t get the Big Ten out of his system, even though he’s transplanted to Arkansas. Check out this recent dig at Ohio State that Bielema dished out via Twitter recently. It's a Sunday night and excited about the week ahead. Was good week of recruiting especially against "THE" University's of the world. #WPS — Bret Bielema (@BretBielema) July 29, 2013 It’s easy to see why Beielma still may be rankled by the Buckeyes, considering he went 1-5 vs. Ohio State while he was running the Badgers. Bielema also didn’t have a
