No matter the season, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team knows how to entertain and have a good time. A day after star Nigel Hayes released “WiscGod,” a play on Drake’s recent “diss tracks,” this one directed at some of his Wisconsin teammates, fellow Badger Vitto Brown came up with a fun retaliation song. Let’s just say Brown, a polished singer who sang the national anthem at the 2015 Final Four, showed Hayes how it’s done. Here are a few of Brown’s lines, courtesy of uwbadgers.com: “Your rap career is over please get back to the court. And please get on

Let’s all say it together: The Michigan State at Ohio State game is the most anticipated in the Big Ten in 2015. And, as Kyle Austin points out, it also is the 7th-most expensive ticket in the nation, according to SeatGeek. The average resale price of a ticket is at $341, more than double the $150 face value of tickets sold by Ohio State — the highest face value of any of the school’s seven home games. *** On the subject of tickets, Michigan is about sold out for its home games.

How good would that guy be at basketball? If you’re an avid sports fan, chances are you’ve probably asked yourself that very question when watching a college football game, or vice versa. Last year, around this time, I wrote a story about if Big Ten basketball players could form a football team. Now, let’s flip the switch. I went ahead and put together a starting five and a sixth man made up of current Big Ten football players. There are so many good choices, so if I missed one, tweet me @BTNSean. Here we go!

Good Q&A from CBSSports.com with Maryland coach Mark Turgeon, who may have the Big Ten’s best team next season. Heck, the Terps could win the national championship. *** I give Pitt coach and ex-Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi credit: He continues to beat the drum for a Penn State-Pitt rivalry. “Being from Pennsylvania, that’s a big game,” Narduzzi said. “I don’t think there’s any bigger rivalry, you can talk about Syracuse, until I’ve been in that Penn State rivalry, a win or a loss fuels that rivalry. In the state of Pennsylvania, Pitt/Penn State football game is where it

Indiana was the inspiration behind "Hoosiers," one of the most popular sports movies ever. To celebrate the film's 30th anniversary, the Indiana Pacers will add a Hickory alternate for the 2015-16 season.
Hey, Rick Neuheisel thinks Rutgers in the Big Ten has a chance to be “really special.” Could RU be the next TCU? Hmmmm. I’ll just say this: There is a lot of potential for Scarlet Knights’ football. “Other than TCU, I don’t think there’s a team out there or a program out there that has benefited more with all this conference realignment than Rutgers,” Neuheisel said on SiriusXM College Sports Nation last week. “Whoever was behind the move to get them into the Big Ten, they should build a statue, because this has a chance (to be successful) should they
