Michigan State Band

Check out what Purdue band formed at halftime

At halftime of the Purdue-Michigan State on Saturday afternoon, the Boilermakers’ marching band put on a performance that caught our attention. Motorcycle enthusiasts will find it interesting, too. Yes, the band formed a motorcycle, and it even included “exhaust” for when it moved across the field. It was really cool, and you can watch it below.

Did you see this? Mike Hopkins interview from space

Hundreds of former athletes have appeared on the Big Ten Network since it was launched back in August, 2007. But former Illinois defensive back Mike Hopkins was the first interviewee to answer questions from Space. That’s right, space… Ever see a former #B1G football team captain interviewed FROM SPACE? @AstroIllini @NASA #orvillemoment WATCH – http://t.co/god31dxGba — Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) October 18, 2013 Hopkins, a four-year letter winner who played at Illinois from 1988-91, is now a current NASA astronaut.

Four Downs: Predictions, facts & more

It’s that time of the week, time for four predictions, four thoughts, four truths, four jockstrap games and four factoids. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for Four Downs. Are you ready for it? Here we go! 4 PREDICTIONS 1. After a lackluster effort at Wisconsin last Saturday, Northwestern is going to come out motivated vs. Minnesota. Don’t read too much into the consecutive losses for the Wildcats. They got beat by arguably the two best teams in Ohio State and Wisconsin. No shame in that. It’s time for NU to get back on track—with or without dinged up

Following is my team-by-team report card with award winners for each squad as well as projected won-loss totals, among other juicy tidbits. Where do you agree? Were do you think I’m wrong? Is your team going to be eligible for a bowl? Have a look at my assessments, watch the top ten plays from last week in the video in this post, and then let’s move forward with Saturday’s games.

Friday links: Meyer hands out OSU report card

Happy Football Friday! Let’s not waste any time, OK? Let’s dig right into some of the Big Ten news that’s making ripples from Lincoln to State College—and all points in between. This caught my attention: Urban Meyer offers a midterm report card for his 6-0 team. There obviously are many areas that get good marks. The areas of concern? “The alarming areas are pass defense, our return game has not been what we thought it would be and we still have to improve the intermediate and short passing game,” Meyer said.” Speaking of Ohio State, Braxton Miller says he wasn’t

Best of Week 8: Will we see an upset Saturday?

After first looking at the menu for Week 8, you may be inclined to rake leaves this Saturday. But, don’t. I have a funny feeling we could have an upset. Besides, there aren’t enough leaves on the ground to rake just yet. [ MORE: Get Tom Dienhart’s Week 8 Big Ten previews ] BEST GAME: Iowa at Ohio State. This clash is the closest thing to a “best game.” The Hawkeyes travel to Ohio State. Good thing Iowa will be coming off a bye, as it likely will need the extra prep time. It’s worth noting that Iowa has lost

Thursday links: Hoops recruits & football news

Yes, football season is starting to really heat up as we enter the second half of the season. But, let’s start with some hoops on this Thursday. I thought you’d enjoy this excellent breakdown of the incoming recruiting classes for each school done by Amelia Rayno of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Rayno points out that some of these classes are quite impressive (see Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Purdue); others are not (Penn State, Northwestern, Michigan State). Is the Gophers’ class really the worst? *** Michigan is still tinkering with its offensive line. Erik Magnuson is now taking reps at left guard.
