Here are my top three Big Ten picks for each bauble. CAMP/MAXWELL (Player of the Year) 1. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State. The dynamic Miller is the quintessential big play waiting to happen. His passing continues to improve, but Miller’s best weapon always will be his feet. No offensive player is more feared. 2. Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State.

Ralph Friedgen Q&A: 'I enjoyed myself' last three years

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood’s most vital recruit in the offseason may not have been any player. Rather, it may have been luring Ralph Friedgen out of retirement. Friedgen brings a wealth of experience to Rutgers, where he will be the fifth offensive coordinator in five years. “The Fridge” sat out the past three seasons following a successful 10-year run at Maryland that included an ACC title and Orange Bowl appearance in 2001.
