Terran Petteway: 'Everybody is going to be coming for us'

When one thinks of Nebraska athletics, there is an immediate thought that likely comes to mind: Football. Don’t tell that to the Nebraska men’s basketball team. The Cornhuskers are coming off an impressive 19-13 season, which saw the program make its first NCAA tournament appearance since Bill Clinton was President. The Huskers were picked to finish fifth in the Big Ten in our BTN.com poll of league beat writers. Nebraska is also ranked No. 21 in the nation heading into this season, according to a USA Today preseason poll, which was released on Thursday. In just two seasons under Tim

Dienhart: There are bonafide high expectations at Nebraska

His first two trips to Big Ten media days, Nebraska coach Tim Miles was out of the spotlight. Sure, he was always good for some comic relief. He even took out his cell phone once and snapped a picture of the assembled media and tweeted it. The media was in love. No doubt, Miles always left an impression as a personality. But the Nebraska team he coached didn’t create much of a stir. In fact, the Cornhuskers were picked to finish last in the Big Ten the last two years. “Well, yeah. You guys haven’t got it right yet,” chided

Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell highlights stong freshman class

The Big Ten has a number of touted freshmen entering the league this season. There’s Indiana’s James Blackmon, Maryland’s Melo Trimble and Northwestern’s Vic Law, to name a few. But the best of all may be Ohio State’s DeAngelo Russell, the favorite to be Big Ten Freshman of the Year. According to some recruiting services, Russell was the No. 3 shooting guard in the nation. He also is the 11th McDonald’s All-American inked during the Thad Matta era. “I think with D’Angelo, all I can say right now is I’m very pleased with how he’s playing in practice, the strides

Minnesota's Richard Pitino looks to build on NIT title success

In case you have forgotten, Minnesota won the NIT last season in Richard Pitino’s first season in the Twin Cities. The Big Ten has done well in the NIT in recent years. Iowa got to the title game in 2013. Minnesota was in the championship tilt in 2012. Penn State won it all in 2009 and year after Ohio State did so in 2008. It was an impressive run for a Golden Gophers program that’s a work-in-progress and has some mojo heading into Year Two under Pitino. But he’s not so sure of the value of that NIT hardware. “The

Video: Look back at the Big Ten Media Day men's press conferences

BTN & BTN2Go aired the 2014 Big Ten Basketball Media Day live on Thursday. The Big Ten Media Day TV show will air again at 8 p.m. ET Thursday. Video of each coach’s press conferences is also posted inside this post. A topic of conversation at Big Ten Media Day was the new scheduling format, which was necessitated with the additions of Maryland and Rutgers to make the Big Ten a 14-team league. League teams will play five double-plays and eight single-plays each season. It will be a true rotation without protected rivals or preference to geography. Previously, Big Ten
