Dienhart: Kicking off my 2013 bowl projections

Not one football has been kicked off. Regardless, I bring to you my first edition of the 2013 bowl projections. I’ll be rolling these out there every Monday this season, so let me know what you think. As you can see, I have Ohio State playing Alabama in the BCS title game. That would be a fitting end to the BCS era, with two of the sport’s iconic programs battling in the historic Rose Bowl. Hey, if the Big Ten is gonna show it is making strides on the national scene, what better way to impress than by possibly beating

The analysis, opinion, conjecture, speculation and anticipation are almost finished. Real, live football kicks off Thursday, with Minnesota hosting UNLV and Indiana entertaining Indiana State.

Dienhart: Best of the 2013 BTN Football Tour

After 15 nights in 12 hotels and 12 cities, stretching from Lincoln, Neb., to State College, Pa., the BTN bus has come to a stop. It was a fun ride, visiting all the Big Ten schools to watch practices. It was the BTN crew’s last chance to kick the tires on each team before the start of the 2013 season. I ate a lot of fast food and drank a lot of Red Bull while traveling the interstates of this great nation. I chowed on Arby’s on I-80; enjoyed Wendy’s on I-94; grubbed on Subway on I-70. Along the way,

Video: Badger Nick Hill finds out he's on scholarship

Ever wonder what it’s like for a walk-on to learn that he has become a scholarship student-athlete? Obviously, it’s a special and emotional moment. But how is the news broken, and how is it received? Well, the Wisconsin Athletics YouTube account posted a video that shows Gary Andersen informing redshirt senior Nick Hill that he’s now on scholarship. Watch the full Wisconsin football feature above or go straight to the Hill scholarship part. Talk about a special moment. I liked the way Andersen broke the news, too.

Dienhart: Ohio State paces 5 Big Ten teams in AP poll

The AP has released its preseason poll—and to the shock of no one, Alabama is No. 1. The Crimson Tide has won three of the last four national championships, bringing back many key players from last year’s squad that dumped Notre Dame in the BCS title game. Ohio State is No. 2, as the Buckeyes seek their first national championship since 2002. That was the last time a Big Ten team won the national title. The Buckeyes played for the BCS title after the 2006 and 2007 seasons, losing to Florida and LSU. Ohio State was No. 2 in the
