Purdue's new coach sets sights on Rose Bowl

(AP) Morgan Burke wants Purdue back in the Rose Bowl, and he’s willing to put his money on Darrell Hazell to get there. After a whirlwind week of speculation, Burke ended the chatter by introducing the 48-year-old New Jersey native as the Boilermakers’ head coach Wednesday. The contract is for six years and comes with a succinct message from Burke: The Cradle of Quarterbacks is about to start rocking again. “We did it because we want to get back to Pasadena,” Burke said.

Big Ten mailbag: Bielema, Hazell, & expansion

Read all about that—and more. And send me your latest questions and comments at the bottom of this post.

Twitter: Big Ten fans react to Heisman finalists

The finalists for the 2012 Heisman Trophy were announced Monday night, and there are a couple surprises: 1. The list includes only three players; and 2. neither Braxton Miller nor Montee Ball received an invite. No. 1 is the real shocker, however, considering there have been five finalists two of the past three years. The last time there were three: 2008. Here’s the list of worthy finalists: Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Kansas State’s Collin Klein and Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o. Did Miller or Ball deserve an invite? Sure. And if there were four or five candidates, one of them would

Sound off: What do you think about expansion?

In case you missed it this weekend, we’re opening up the lines for you to tell the Big Ten Conference your answers to the key questions surrounding the latest conference expansion.

How important are traditional rivalries, geographic location and competitive balance? How should having 14 members impact the basketball tournaments? We’re asking, and now you can answer in this post.
