Big Ten West: 3 offseason areas to watch for each team

Spring football ended across the Big Ten almost two weeks ago. The long offseason is here—but work remains. All 14 league teams enter the summer with some nagging questions. First up: The Big Ten West. ILLINOIS 1. Is the d-line better? Tim Beckman brought in Mike Phair from the NFL to coach the line and co-coordinate. He has been in the pros the last 13 years. This D needs help after ranking 94th, 105th and 107th in the nation in scoring in Beckman’s first three seasons. And it starts up front. 2. Can the offensive line get a push? This

Big Ten Links: MSU vs. Florida hoops, projected bowl landing spots & more

It’s possible Ohio State breaks its own record. “No question Ohio State is a team that’s going to be well represented at next year’s draft,” CBSSports.com NFL Draft analyst Dane Brugler told Northeast Ohio Media Group. “There’s so much talent, we could be talking about potentially double digit draft picks for the Buckeyes next year.” So, what does that mean for OSU on the field this season?

Tom Brady attends Kentucky Derby & May-Pac fight Saturday

Saturday was dubbed by many as the greatest single day in sports history, in large part because of the always-popular Kentucky Derby and the highly anticipated Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. [ MORE: Get all of our Big Ten pros coverage ] Events like these have a history of bringing out the biggest and brightest stars, and Saturday was no exception. The proof is Tom Brady. The former Michigan quarterback and four-time Super Bowl champion attended both events, along with several New England teammates, starting the day in Kentucky and finishing it in Las Vegas. Not a bad Saturday, huh? Making the day
