Q&A: Chuck Long breaks down B1G title game

Way back on August 1, I did a Q&A with Iowa legend and BTN analyst Chuck Long, asking for his views on the 2013 season. In one of my questions, I asked Long who he was picking to win the Legends Division. His selection was a bit of a surprise: Michigan State. Four months later, Long looks like a genius. Now, only 60 minutes separates Michigan State from the Big Ten championship and the conference’s automatic bid to the Rose Bowl. The Spartans, by the way, haven’t been to the Rose Bowl since the 1987 season. But Ohio State will

Scouting Report: Big Ten assistants on Ohio State

The coaches for Michigan State and Ohio State are furiously game-planning for the Big Ten championship game. I asked several Big Ten coordinators who have prepared for and stared down the Spartans and Buckeyes for their off-the-record views and ideas on how to attack each team. Here’s what they said. ***SCOUTING OHIO STATE*** To stop that offense, you better be, No. 1, big enough, and No. 2, athletic enough, to make tackles at the d-line position. The d-line needs to be gap-sound and to get off blocks, or those guys will get through there. And I think Michigan State has

Scouting Report: Big Ten assistants on Michigan State

The coaches for Michigan State and Ohio State are furiously game-planning for the Big Ten championship game. I asked several Big Ten coordinators who have prepared for and stared down the Spartans and Buckeyes for their off-the-record views and ideas on how to attack each team. Here’s what they said. ***SCOUTING MICHIGAN STATE*** I think MSU needs to get even more boring than they are on offense. They need to line up with as big of personnel as they can and run the football 50 times with Jeremy Langford. Right now, the OSU defense is young and built for speed

B1G Breakdown: Position by position

Some feel the Big Ten title game clash between Ohio State and Michigan State is the most anticipated league battle since No. 1 Ohio State played No. 2 Michigan in 2006. It very well could be. Here’s a look at the matchups for each team. Who has the edge? Let’s go position by position. ***OFFENSE*** BACKFIELD Michigan State: In September, this area was a mess. Now, it has become an unabashed strong suit. Connor Cook has emerged as the unquestioned leader at quarterback, but he’s still a work in progress. His passing can be spotty but he has 17 TD

Dienhart: Finally, a big B1G title game

This is what the Big Ten needs: A league championship game with some true national big-game appeal that could launch the conference on an upward trajectory. The event is in just its third year, so it’s not like there has been some long run of irrelevant games. But the much-anticipated event hasn’t gotten off to the most scintillating start for a league that’s looking to gain a foothold with the national elite after some challenging years. In the first two Big Ten championship games, nothing beyond a bid to the Rose Bowl was on the line. Yes, that’s a big

Twitter: Is title game Big Ten's biggest game since '06?

The Big Ten title game is going to be great. Not only do you have 11-1 Michigan State vs. 12-0 Ohio State, you have Michigan State’s No. 1 defense vs. Ohio State’s No. 1 offense. There’s more intriguing storylines, too. Like, Ohio State can make the BCS title game with a win. That got BTN’s Mike Hall wondering if this was the biggest Big Ten game since Michigan-Ohio State in 2006.
