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.

Urban Meyer won't suspend ejected OSU players

(AP) Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says the players ejected from the Michigan game for fighting will not be suspended for the Big Ten championship game. Running back Dontre Wilson and offensive lineman Marcus Hall were kicked out of Saturday’s game when a skirmish broke out after a kickoff return in the second quarter. Meyer said Sunday that he will meet with athletic director Gene Smith and speak with Big Ten officials about the fight. A Big Ten spokesman said Saturday that the league would have to review video of the play before deciding if any players would be punished

Dienhart: Big Ten Championship notes

Injuries are a key factor in any game, and this game is no different. Nebraska will miss the presence of tackle Baker Steinkuhler on the interior of the defensive line. The Huskers need Chase Rome—among others—to step up with Steinkuhler out. And center Justin Jackson is out. It will be Mark Pelini or Cole Pensick at center. In other news, Wisconsin got good news this week when linebacker Chris Borland was cleared to play after hurting a hamstring against Indiana on Nov. 10, forcing him to miss the last two games. His presence will be key in trying to slow
