Video: Why those recruiting ratings aren't everything

When you’re inevitably checking out your Big Ten football team’s signing class tomorrow, don’t gloss over the one- and two-star players. The rating system is an inexact science, and these lower-profile players could just turn out to be, say, Russell Wilson. Out of high school, the freshly minted Super Bowl-winning quarterback was a two-star recruit. He played nothing like a two-star recruit at North Carolina State or Wisconsin, and he plays nothing like a third-round NFL draft pick. [ PROGRAM ALERT: Watch our Signing Day Special at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday ] So, again, don’t forget about the under-the-radar signees

#BTNLive talks with MSU strength coach Ken Mannie

Michigan State’s football team has been known as one of the top conditioned teams in the nation during the Mark Dantonio-era, and the man responsible for that is Spartans strength and conditioning coach Ken Mannie. Mannie is in his 19th year in that position at Michigan State, while also overseeing the strength and conditioning programs for all men’s and women’s sports at MSU. Our #BTNLive crew caught up with Mannie on Thursday and asked him about the relationship between strength and conditioning coaches and the players, among other questions. “I think that’s one of the greatest parts of our profession,”

Allow players to leave sans penalty when coach leaves?

Here’s a topic that is certain to get some reaction: Should student-athletes be able to transfer without penalty when their head coach leaves? That was the topic presented to BTN analysts Stanley Jackson and Stephen Bardo on Wednesday night’s #BTNLive, and their responses were very interesting. Watch the segment in this post. Both guys agreed that times have changed, especially since they played. And they both said they chose their schools based on what it offered and represented as opposed to the head coach. “It used to be you went to Ohio State, you went to Penn State, you went
