Fourteen Big Ten products win Super Bowl rings

Fourteen former Big Ten players will be fitted for rings after the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots, 21-17, Sunday night in Super Bowl XLVI (AP recap). Ex-Michigan WR Mario Manningham highlighted the group with five receptions for 73 yards, including a ridiculous 38-yard grab (watch the catch!) that helped set up New York’s game-winning score in the final minute. See how all Big Ten products did in the Super Bowl in this post. The Big Ten ties extended to the New York coaching staff, too, as Pat Flaherty (Penn State & Iowa assistant), Peter Giunta (Penn State

Dienhart: Big Ten recruiting notebook

The calendar says 2012, but it may as well be 1975. The Big Ten is all about Michigan and Ohio State on this Signing Day, hearkening to days of the “Big Two and the Little Eight.” Only in today’s world, it’s the “Big Two and the Little 10.” According to Scout.com, Ohio State and Michigan dominated the Big Ten in recruiting. And, it really wasn’t close. The Buckeyes singed seven Top 100 recruits, with four five-star signees and 11 four-star recruits. The Wolverines inked six of Scout.com’s Top 100 players, including one five-star recruit and 14 four-star recruits. Scout.com’s Allen

Designer's Big Ten helmet ideas hit Web

There’s a designer out there, Charles Sollars, who is designing FAUX Nike Pro Combat helmets for BCS conference schools. While the helmets are just concepts and something he does as a hobby, I assume, they’re still really fun for all of us to consider and critique. Many of the lids are pretty cool, too. He has a design for every Big Ten school — some good, some ridiculous — and you can see them in this post. Again, these are not real — just something fun to consider.

Signing Day: Wisconsin

The Badgers had a great haul, landing five four-star prospects, including the top two players in their own state, linebacker Vince Biegel and running back Vonte Jackson. As usually, there is talent on the offensive line coming in. Guard Dan Voltz had offers from Alabama, Michigan and others before choosing the Badgers. Quarterback Bart Houston was a huge coup, coming over from California. The four-star prospect has a chance to compete early and certainly will be a factor over the next few years. One potential sleeper in the class is cornerback Reggie Mitchell, a multi-talented Pittsburgh athlete who played quarterback

Dienhart: Team-by-team recruiting needs

With Wednesday’s Football Signing Day right around the corner, it’s time to focus on the areas of need for each Big Ten team. Should your team be eying offensive linemen? Wide receivers? Defensive backs? BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart offers his top three recruiting needs for all 12 Big Ten teams in this post. Don’t forget: BTN will air a live 90-minute Signing Day show at 4:30 p.m. ET Wednesday. ILLINOIS 1. Defensive line 2. Running back 3.

‘Football Signing Day Special’ Airs Wednesday

A new class of future Big Ten football stars will sign National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, and BTN will air a live, 90-minute “Football Signing Day Special” at 4:30 PM ET that day to reveal which student-athletes will attend Big Ten universities. Host Mike Hall, analysts Gerry DiNardo, Howard Griffith and Chris Martin will review each school’s recruiting class and evaluate how each team filled its most pressing roster needs. The program will include video highlights of top recruits, one-on-one interviews with Big Ten head coaches and expert analysis from Scout.com national recruiting expert Allen Trieu.

Way-too-early '12 Big Ten OPOY candidates

Now that the deadline to declare for the 2012 NFL Draft has passed, it’s a lot easier to analyze what could be in store for the Big Ten next season. This is far too early, admittedly, but you can find my list of the top candidates for the 2012 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in this post. Disagree? Did I leave someone off the list? Leave your thoughts in the comment box, or tweet @BTNBrentYarina. 1. Montee Ball, Wisconsin, RB, Sr. – A Heisman finalist and the owner of a Big Ten-record 39 touchdowns a season ago, Ball

Big Ten well represented in Super Bowl XLVI

As many as 20 Big Ten products will participate in Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5, headlined by New England QB Tom Brady (Michigan), a three-time Super Bowl winner and two-time Super Bowl MVP. Brady is the biggest name, by far, but it’s the New York Giants who have the most Big Ten players (14 players to six). See all the Big Ten products in the Super Bowl in this post.

Wisconsin's Ball receives Silver Football

During an early break in the Northwestern-Wisconsin men’s basketball game Wednesday night, Teddy Greenstein, of the Chicago Tribune, presented Badgers star running back and Heisman Trophy finalist Montee Ball with the Silver Football, awarded annually to the Big Ten’s MVP. Ball is the eighth Badger to win the prestigious award, voted on by the league’s coaches, and the first since Ron Dayne (1999). The junior running back totaled 2,229 yards, including a nation’s best 1,923 on the ground, and a Big Ten record 39 touchdowns. Watch the entire presentation now.
