Dienhart: Check out Penn State's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

The NFL draft has been good to Penn State the last 10 years, as the Nittany Lions have produced 36 picks. That total is more impressive when you consider Penn State had no picks in 2005. The program has lived up to its billing as “Linebacker U,” producing nine picks at that storied position in State College, Pa. No other position has produced as many NFL picks over the last 10 years for PSU. The Nittany Lions also have been fertile on both lines and in the defensive backfield. The offensive skill spots? Not so productive. There are several Nittany

The Michigan-Michigan State rivalry has developed into one of the most heated in-state rivalries in college football today. While Michigan owned this rivalry early on, it is the Spartans who have been dominant on the gridiron as of late, winning six of the last seven meetings between these schools.

Dienhart: Check out Ohio State's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

Prolific. There is no other way to describe Ohio State’s performance in the last 10 NFL drafts. It’s a proverbial football factory in Columbus. But, I think we already had an inkling of that.

Big Ten Links: Jake Ryan on paying players, Bo Pelini's house & more

OK, we have another opinion in the endless debate on if players should be paid. This time, it’s ex-Michigan LB Jake Ryan weighing in. And he doesn’t think players should get any loot. “If (someone is) a winning coach, so be it, pay them what you think,” Ryan said to Matt Shepard of WDFN. With the whole paying student-athletes thing, you’re getting an education. You’re getting a Michigan degree, that’s what I got. You get that throughout your four or five years and I think that’s perfect. You work hard towards that, that’s what I worked hard towards. “That, and
