For today’s point/counterpoint, we’re debating how Wisconsin can move on without Jordan Taylor.
Each Tuesday morning during the Big Ten football season, all 12 coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio Tuesday afternoon for each segment of the call, and we do this every week. Also, @B1Gfootball spotlights a tweet or three from each coach on the call live on Twitter in case you want to follow along.
No changes at the top of my bowl projections this week with Nebraska and Michigan taking care of business, and Wisconsin and Northwestern being off. But the “lower-tier” bowls are in flux.
It’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. There are a couple of names making their debut on this week’s list, and both play in Columbus, Ohio. What other movement was there? Find out in this post.
Not a lot of movement in my latest Power Rankings following Week 10 of the season, as Ohio State and Nebraska retained possession of the top two spots. Indiana was the biggest mover, as it continued to turn heads with a home win over Iowa. See where all 12 teams land this week in this post.
It’s Oct. 31 and Big Ten fans are celebrating Halloween all over. As you can tell from the video in this post, we think we know what costumer Tom Izzo will be wearing. So we’ve taken to Twitter to collect some great Halloween-themed shots posted by the fans. See a few in this post and check out all of the photos at BTN.com/connect.
Our “Tailgate 48” team was in Madison this past week, and it got a first-hand look at how rabid Wisconsin fans prepare for a big game on campus. We even attended Freakfest, Madison’s Halloween tradition. Don’t forget each week that the TV show spotlights a few great Big Ten fan tailgating photos (see the latest on BTN.com/connect now). Get your photo considered by tweeting it to @BigTenNetwork and use the hashtag #tailgate48.
