Big Ten links: Mariota vs. Jones, Harbaugh's rooting interest & more

The hype continues to build for Monday night’s national championship game. No doubt, the play of the quarterbacks will play a big role in the outcome. Cleveland.com takes a look at how Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Ohio State’s Cardale Jones stack up numbers-wise. On the subject of Ohio State, how good of a job has Urban Meyer done this year? It has to be one of the all-time best coaching jobs ever, right? The way Meyer has managed an injury-riddled quarterback spot and improved the defense has been remarkable. *** Who is Jim Harbaugh rooting for to win the national

This is a fun piece: ESPN.com writer Mark Schlabach wrote an apology to the Big Ten, a conference he buried earlier this year. *** Looks like D.J. Durkin reportedly will be defensive coordinator at Michigan. He was with Jim Harbaugh at Stanford and most recently ran the defense at Florida, where he was interim head coach for the Gators’ bowl win. *** The great Mike Griffith of Mlive.com has a good recap of Michigan State’s 11-2 season in photo and extended cutline fashion. *** Nice piece from Tom Shatel of Omaha.com on Jack Hoffman’s appreciation for meeting Stuart Scott, who
