Tom Dienhart's top 5 players to replace: Michigan State

The Michigan State machine rolls on. The 2015 season marked the fifth time in the last six years that the Spartans won double-digit games to go along with three Big Ten championships. And the program has played in major bowls each of the last three seasons, reaching the playoffs for the first time last season. [ MORE: Get all of Tom Dienhart’s players to replace posts ] Mark Dantonio has a strong foundation laid. Players come and go, but the Spartans always play well. That’s a credit to a strong coaching staff that has been marked by stability. Still, replicating

Big Ten Mailbag: J.T. Barrett's Heisman outlook, IU's D & more

It’s time to dig into my Mailbag. What are some of the big non-conference football games next season? Could J.T. Barrett win the Heisman? That and more. [ MORE: Relive all of the 2015-16 bowls on our official bowl page ] With Ohio State’s schedule next year, an early truth-teller will be the Oklahoma game in Norman, Okla. It is OSU’s third game, which may give all of the young Buckeyes a chance to gel before the trip. This will be an early hallmark tilt for the BIG and a chance to show the strength of conference vs. a Sooners

How good was 2015 Big Ten football season? Here are the numbers!

One year after Ohio State claimed the inaugural College Football Playoff national crown, the Big Ten compiled another successful season that saw Michigan State make the national semifinals. [ MORE: 2015-16 bowl results | View final 2015 polls | Way-too-early 2016 polls ] A total of six Big Ten teams finished in the final AP poll, released Monday, including four in the top 12: No. 4 Ohio State; No. 6 Michigan State; No. 9 Iowa; No. 12 Michigan. No. 21 Wisconsin and No. 23 Northwestern round out the Big Ten contingent. Here are a couple more 2015 factoids: This is

Big Ten links: It's time to check out Wednesday's headlines

A new NCAA proposal could mean saying “good-bye” to satellite camps and “hello” to text messaging. But I am most bummed to hear there is no early-signing period on the horizon for football. I just don’t get it. Basketball has an early-signing period, but football doesn’t? I think we all know why there isn’t one in football: The big, elite schools don’t want it. *** On the subject of pushing the envelope with rules … if it is Wednesday, Jim Harbaugh must be making headlines. The latest: He plans to spend the night at the home of the nation’s top

Leah Still, daughter of former Penn State DL, beats cancer

Here’s some excellent news: Leah Still, the young daughter of former Penn State defensive lineman Devon Still, has beaten cancer. The 2011 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year announced the news on social media Monday night, soon after Leah finished her last treatment. “Words can’t describe how proud I am of this girl,” Still wrote in an Instagram post, which is embedded below. “No matter how hard it got or how painful the treatments were (and it was pretty bad a lot of the times) she never gave up! I want to thank everyone who followed us as I

Here's where some very early 2016 polls rank Big Ten teams

The 2015 college football season just ended, you say? Give us at least a day to digest it all before looking ahead to the 2016 season, you say? [ MORE: Six Big Ten teams land on final AP & Coaches polls ] Not a chance. Not in today’s world, one in which the annual way-too-early polls start being released pretty much as soon as the the national championship game ends. Well, the second annual College Football Playoff National Championship Game was Monday night (it was a great one, too), so the way-too-early polls are out in full force. Check out

Tom Dienhart's top 5 players to replace: Michigan Wolverines

By most accounts, Jim Harbaugh’s debut at Michigan was a rousing success. He inherited a 5-7 team and turned it into a 10-3 squad with a domination of Florida in the Citrus Bowl to end the season. The losses all were “quality,” as the Wolverines fell at Utah, vs. Michigan State and vs. Ohio State. [ MORE: Get all of Tom Dienhart’s players to replace posts ] No doubt, this is a program with as much promise as any in the Big Ten, as Harbaugh continues to fold in talent that he has recruited. Most of last year’s key contributors

Six Big Ten football teams ranked in season's final AP, Coaches polls

The second annual College Football Playoff title game was Monday night, with No. 2 Alabama holding off No. 1 Clemson in an absolute thriller. [ MORE: Relive all of the bowl action on our 2015-16 bowl schedule ] With the 2015 season now completely in the rearview mirror, the AP and Coaches polls released their final rankings Tuesday. Six Big Ten teams are ranked in each poll, paced by Ohio State (No. 4 AP/No. 4 Coaches), last season’s national champ. The Buckeyes took care of Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl to finish 12-1, the lone loss coming on the

Big Ten links: Jim Harbaugh's spring idea, Kevin Wilson's deal & more

So, Jim Harbaugh would like to hold part of spring practice in Florida? Why is this not a shock? This from the guy who conducted satellite camps last summer that caused an uproar. How do you think SEC schools will feel about this? Exactly. *** Good news from Indiana, as Kevin Wilson has inked a six-year deal that will keep him in Bloomington until 2021. Wilson has the program on the rise, taking it to its first bowl since 2007. The next step: winning the school’s first bowl since 1991. *** Michigan State didn’t have Denzel Valentine for four games

Kevin Wilson, Indiana agree to six-year extension

Indiana University Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass announced Monday that head football coach Kevin Wilson has signed a new six-year contract. The agreement runs through the 2021 season and Wilson will earn an average annual compensation of $2.55 million or $15.3 million over six years.
