Big Ten links: Ohio State QB, Illinois assistant shakeup & more

If you are waiting on Ohio State to name a starter, you’ll need to wait longer. It won’t happen until the opener on Monday at Virginia Tech. And when game time rolls around, both Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett could see action. In the end, it seems most pundits think Barrett will get the call. But, I don’t think the offense will look much different regardless of who takes snaps, right? *** Mitch Leidner is the starting QB for Minnesota.

Big Ten links: Anthony Zettel, Nebraska season predictions & more

Fun story from Bob Flounders of Pennlive.com on Penn State DT Anthony Zettel. Is there anything he won’t try? He can whip Christian Hackenberg in golf. What else? “I am a better golfer,” Zettel told Flounders.”I beat [Hackenberg] by two strokes. We both didn’t play that great. He’s very competitive. He’s got a big ego and he loves golf, he enjoys it. We both do. But it’s just how it is.” *** Hey, looky here: Ex-Michigan Heisman winner Desmond Howard has picked Michigan State to win the Big Ten. *** How about this: Illinois football games now will be broadcast

Ohio State captain list includes J.T. Barrett, not Cardale Jones

Read into it what you will: J.T. Barrett is one of Ohio State’s six captains, a group that does not include Cardale Jones, the team announced Friday. Barrett and Jones are battling for the much-talked-about starting quarterback position of the defending national champs. Both are fantastic talents, and both have well-known stories. Barrett, who filled in for an injured Braxton Miller last season, put up a record-setting season last year on his way to claiming Big Ten Quarterback of the Year, while Jones, following Barrett’s injury in the season finale vs. Michigan, led the Buckeyes to three memorable postseason victories
