Big Ten Web Links: Get Friday's top clicks

Last night, we watched the Huskers practice on the second stop of our BTN bus tour. Up next, it’s Minnesota on Saturday. You can watch the Nebraska Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET tonight. Until then, check out these quality Big Ten web links. TIME TO SNAP THE SKID: Straight from the “can you believe this” category: Minnesota hasn’t had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2006. And JC transfer running back James Gillum wants to end that dubious skein. Gillum showed he could carry a big load in the JC ranks, running for over 1,000 yards in each of his two

B1G stars make SI.com's preseason All-America Team

SI.com released its 2012 Preseason All-America Team on Thursday, and a half-dozen Big Ten players made the original cut (Update: Michigan State CB Johnny Adams was added due to the dismissal of LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu). Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, Wisconsin left tackle Ricky Wagner and Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short earned first-team honors to headline the Big Ten representatives. The second team includes Adams, Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead, Wisconsin offensive lineman Travis Frederick and Michigan State defensive end William Gholston. [SI.com: 2012 Preseason All-America Team] About what you’d expect. Some Michigan fans might ask where Denard Robinson is,

Big Ten Web Links: Read Thursday's best clicks

We’re in Lincoln, one day after watching Iowa practice on the first stop of our summer bus tour. Don’t forget you can watch Iowa’s preview show at 10 p.m. ET Thursday. Until then, here are Thursday’s best Big Ten web links. MORE ON MEYER: ESPN has a monster story on Ohio State coach Urban Meyer that is fascinating in its gritty and detail—detail that often times makes you wince. Example: When Meyer’s daughter Gigi was making comments at a ceremony at her high school while announcing the college she was attending to play volleyball, she looked at her dad and

Clothes Call: Ranking Big Ten football helmets

When Tom Dienhart wrote that Penn State should put blue ribbon stickers on both sides of its helmet, it got my attention. No helmet, it seems, is as sacred as Penn State’s  – not even Michigan’s. After all, the Wolverines are coming off a season in which they added numbers to their lids and put gray facemasks in the rotation, both nods to the past. It’s back to the usual look in 2012. The last time Penn State made a significant change to its helmet: 1987, when it went from gray to blue facemasks. That’s a commitment to one look.

Big Ten web links: Wednesday's top clicks

I’m in Iowa City today to take in Iowa’s practice. It’s the first stop on our annual summer bus tour, and I’m excited to watch the team’s running backs, among other things. Enough about me, it’s time to bring you all of Wednesday’s top Big Ten web links. VETERAN HUSKERS: If experience matters, Nebraska is in good shape for the 2012 season. According to Steve Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star, the Cornhuskers have 29 seniors and 26 juniors on the roster. And among that massive senior class are 22 fifth-year seniors. No doubt, that veteran leadership will go a

Wisconsin: 10 reasons to be excited in 2012

Wisconsin is the hottest team in the Big Ten. It’s true. This is a new world Big Ten, where traditional heavyweights like Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Nebraska all are looking up at Wisconsin. This is the Badgers’ world … and everyone else is just living in it. The Badgers are coming off back-to-back Big Ten titles and Rose Bowl appearances, going an aggregate 22-5 overall the last two seasons (13-3 Big Ten). Now, history beckons. Wisconsin is aiming to be the first Big Ten team to play in three consecutive Rose Bowls since Michigan turned the trick after

Ready, set, click Tuesday's best B1G web links

Happy Tuesday! I’m on my way to Iowa City, Iowa, the first stop on our annual Summer Football Tour. I’m excited to see the Hawkeyes practice Wednesday. Before I file my report, check out the day’s top Big Ten web links in this post. GHOLSTON TIME: Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press sounds off on Michigan State defensive end William Gholston. There may not be a player I am more excited to watch this season than the Spartan defensive end. HUNGRY SPARTANS: Yes, Michigan State has won 11 games in each of the previous two seasons. But the Spartans

How does "B1G" patch look on your team's jersey? Here you go

With the first Big Ten football game still three-plus weeks away, I’m looking for any excuse to talk football. Uniform updates help me pass the time. Today is no different, especially with the release of Wisconsin’s new adidas alternate uniform. On a smaller note, the conference has a new rule that requires every team to wear a “B1G” patch on its jerseys. It’s been reported quite a bit and it’s something I tried to spotlight in my media days Clothes Call recap, but here is photo evidence. Not a big thing at all. It’s something the conference is implementing this

Wisconsin releases full adidas alternate uniform

After building up plenty of anticipation during its four-day slow reveal, Wisconsin unveiled its new adidas TECHFIT alternate uniform Monday. The Badgers will wear the new duds in their Big Ten opener Sept. 29 at Nebraska, which also will wear a new adidas alternate uniform. See pictures and videos of the uniform in this post, plus tell us if you like Wisconsin or Nebraska’s uni better. [Facebook.com: View full gallery of Wisconsin’s uniform] [BTN.com: Clothes Call: Big Ten summer practice edition] This is a clean look, all things considered. I like how it isn’t a drastic change from Wisconsin’s traditional
