Who doesn’t love a fantasy draft? BTN.com conducted its annual Big Ten football draft Monday afternoon. View all the picks inside.
Before your Big Ten team kicks off, you need to see the fantastic throwback footage Wisconsin has of head coach Gary Andersen. In the team’s latest “The Camp 2014” video feature, the Badgers put video of Andersen, with a mullet and skin tight clothes, on the big screen during a team meeting. The team loved it, and so will you. Fast forward to the 3:45 mark to see a younger Andersen working out and trying to make a name for himself.
Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: West bowl teams? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post.
The Big Ten recently unveiled what its 2014 men’s basketball tourney bracket will look like going forward now that the conference has 14 teams. The format will feature a double-bye for the top four seeds.
I have to say: I was a bit shocked to see this report that Tanner McEvoy has beaten out Joel Stave for the starting quarterback job at Wisconsin. This decision surprises, unlike the other quarterback competitions this fall that saw Danny Etling win the job at Purdue, Gary Nova prevail at Rutgers and Wes Lunt emerge at Illinois.

I’ve spent months (seems like years, some days) analyzing the coming 2014 season. I’ve talked to head coaches. assistant coaches and players. I even asked the greeter at my local Walmart who he likes to win the Big Ten. Hey, he’s a big Ohio State fan. I wanted to at least humor the guy, ya know?
