Here’s what ESPN’s Austin Ward (@AWardESPN) says about the four Buckeyes: Ezekiel Elliott “The star of the postseason a year ago, the junior is

Pitt's Pat Narduzzi claims Ohio State won national title using MSU's defense

It’s a copycat world. A team has success with a new system or wrinkle, no matter the sport, other teams are certain to give it a try, too. [ MORE: Like this post?

The former Michigan State defensive coordinator recently told The Griff & Grinz Show in East Lansing that Ohio State won the national championship using Michigan State’s defense. “Ohio State’s facing the same problem (against offenses), because they stole our defense,

What Tom Dienhart will be watching at Indiana football practice

Kevin Wilson has made Indiana a better program in his four seasons. But, he has no bowl appearance to show for it. That may change in 2015. The talent level is at an all-time high under Wilson, who has a good offensive system and an idea of how to win in Bloomington. The offense looks good once again. But, success may come down to an often maligned defense delivering the goods. Here are three things I’ll be watching at Indiana practice. 1. Is the o-line dominating? This has a chance to be a very good front. Maybe even (gasp!) one

Football tour notebook: Quick takes from Rutgers practice

The BTN bus has left Rutgers , and now it’s time to share some news, notes and nuggets I gathered while watching the Scarlet Knights. This is a roster that looks more Big Ten-caliber than last year. Even better: Rutgers seems to understand what it is: a tough, physical team that will have to out work and out hit teams to win. On offense, the Scarlet Knights want to go downhill and wear down foes. They have the line and backs to do it. Kyle Flood has his players buying into that mentality. This looks like another bowl team if
