Golden age dawns for Buckeyes vs. Wolverines

Stop. Lift your head and look around. Take a moment to drink in what we are about to witness. This will be the first meeting between Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and Michigan coach Brady Hoke. And it’s the beginning of what I think will be a golden age for this All-American rivalry. That’s saying a lot, I know. This is one of America’s greatest feuds. And it is defined by two names: Woody vs. Bo. But Brady vs. Urban has a chance to be special. Brady vs. Urban has a chance to be great. Brady vs. Urban has a

Dienhart: Battered Marve aims for bowl bid

You can’t help but notice the clunky brace on Robert Marve’s left knee. It wasn’t there way back in 2007, when Marve was one of the nation’s hottest shots, a can’t-miss prospect from Plant High School in Tampa, Fla. Name a school, any school, and Marve could have gone to it. Now, six years later, Marve is finishing out his college career in relative obscurity and far from the national spotlight. A Heisman contender? An All-American? A first-team All-Big Ten choice? Nope. Nope. Nope. There are a number of reasons why Marve’s career never fulfilled expectations. The biggest is because

IU football revival takes center stage

Please excuse Indiana if it doesn’t know how to react to the all the fuss around its home game with Wisconsin this Saturday. You see, big football games aren’t common in Bloomington. Big basketball games? Those are as ubiquitous as covered bridges in southern Indiana. But big football games? They seemingly are on the same schedule as Halley’s Comet. But make no mistake about: The denizens of Bloomington have a big football game on their hands—even though Indiana coach Kevin Wilson disagrees. “You guys can say this is a big game, but they’re all big games,” Wilson said in his

Big Ten's Carollo: Rules evolved since 1997 hit

Big Ten Coordinator of Football Officials Bill Carollo remembers the hit. Whoever saw that hit will never forget it. The collision that took place between Michigan safety Daydrion Taylor and Penn State’s Bob Stephenson back in 1997 resonates today. “And you know what?” says Carollo. “Back then, it was a legal hit. But today, it would be a penalty.” That’s how the game has changed in the 15 years that have passed since the devastating intersection of these players who each saw their lives changed forever on that November day back in 1997. On Saturday’s “Big Ten Football Pregame Show”

Resilient Penn State focuses on next big test

The story of the 2012 Penn State team just keeps getting more interesting … and improbable. Back in August, no one was authoring this script. No one saw the Nittany Lions becoming a Big Ten star with a 5-2 overall record and 3-0 Big Ten mark with Ohio State rolling into State College, Pa., on the last Saturday of October. With both programs strapped with NCAA probation and unable to win the Big Ten or to play in a bowl, nothing is on the line—yet everything is on the line, especially for Penn State. The Nittany Lions’ probation extends longer

First-Half Report: How is season stacking up?

The season is halfway over. There have been surprises. There have been disappointments. The second half of the season is thick with storylines: Who will win the rugged Legends Division? Can Ohio State finish unbeaten? Can Buckeye quarterback Braxton Miller win the Heisman? Buckle up. It’s going to be a fun ride over the next month and a half. Before moving forward, let’s take the temperature of the Big Ten at the midway point of 2012. We’ve had every single quarter of every single game covered, and we’ll do the same right through the Big Ten Football Championship and the

Dienhart: Iowa game looms large for Spartans

The time is now for Michigan State. There is a sense of urgency around this week’s visit from Iowa. In fact, the game almost has a “must-win” aura about it. The Spartans are 4-2 overall and 1-1 in the Big Ten. After this game with the Hawkeyes, Michigan State will embark on its most arduous phase of the season, playing at Michigan and at Wisconsin before coming home to play Nebraska and Northwestern. That’s why winning this game against Iowa is so vital to the Spartans. The Legends Division champ is likely to have two losses—at the most—in Big Ten

Crucial 3-game stretch for Purdue begins

Michigan is coming to Purdue to play a big football game (4 p.m. ET, BTN/BTN2Go). Saturdays like this aren’t commonplace in West Lafayette, Ind. Big basketball games? They happen almost every winter in this hamlet tucked just off I-65 an hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of Chicago. But big football games? They have been sparse in the last, oh, generation. So, pardon the natives if they aren’t accustomed to the fuss of a big football Saturday. Everyone in the Big Ten needs to sit up and pay attention to this game. Yes, the Nebraska at Ohio State

Big Ten bright spots appear in bumpy 2012

Raise your hand if you’re positively sick and tired of hearing all of the negativity about the Big Ten? I’m not saying the criticism isn’t deserved, because it is, and in the end it’s the football teams that can do the most about it. The Big Ten is 6-9 combined against schools from Automatic Qualifying conferences and Notre Dame, and Northwestern provided three of those wins. I never envisioned the Wildcats doing the heavy lifting for the Big Ten through one month of the 2012 season, but there you go. I’ve watched some of every Big Ten game so far
