Latest Big Ten Blast News

Dienhart: Let's look at the week ahead

Can you see it? I can. It’s stratification in this crazy Big Ten title chase. Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan sit atop the standings with 5-2 league marks. Right behind that trio are Wisconsin, Illinois and Purdue with three conference defeats. But discounting the standings, I think the Buckeyes, Spartans and Badgers are about to pull from the pack and emerge as the three top teams in the league. The next tier of teams is Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Purdue. And I think the third tier includes Minnesota, Iowa, Northwestern, Nebraska and Penn State. But, as we all know,

Dienhart: 5 Jump Early to NFL Draft

College football players had until Jan. 15 to declare for the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday, April 26 and continues through Saturday, April 28 (get more info at NFL.com). The Big Ten saw five players (Illinois’ Whitney Mercilus, Iowa’s Riley Reiff, Michigan State’s Jerel Worthy and Edwin Baker and Wisconsin’s Peter Konz) opt for the pros, so here’s my quick look at each one along with some handy links. NFL.com also has a cool database feature where you can look back at previous NFL Drafts by school. Here are the direct links to the NFL.com pages for Illinois, Indiana, Iowa,

Big Ten Stock Watch: 5 up, 5 down

One-third of the way through the Big Ten schedule, it’s time to compile a quick stock report. What we’re analyzing here is whose stock is up and whose is down since Big Ten play opened late last month. In this post, you’ll find five players who have improved their play since the real season tipped and five who have struggled during that time. 5 UP 1. Joseph Bertrand, Illinois – Chances are you probably didn’t know much about Bertrand before Christmas. You do now, because the athletic guard has the uncanny ability to get to the basket for easy shot

Dienhart: Intrastate battle headlines slate

The Big Ten features 11 men’s basketball games this week, including an interesting non-league contest that has Michigan playing at Arkansas. Will this week’s slate of games feature as many upsets, further jumbling the conference race? Here’s how I rank the games this week. 1. Michigan State at Michigan, Tuesday. How will the Spartans respond to the end of their 15-game winning streak? Like Michigan State, the Wolverines are coming off a road loss. This could be the road win that stamps the Spartans as the top Big Ten team. Or maybe not. 2. Wisconsin at Illinois, Sunday. Both teams

Badgers tab Canada to run offense

(UWBadgers.com) – Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema took another step toward completing his coaching staff by naming Matt Canada as the Badgers’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach on Tuesday. Canada spent last season in the same role at Northern Illinois, helping the Huskies to an 11-3 record, a MAC championship and a victory in the GoDaddy.com Bowl. “Matt has a terrific history as an offensive coordinator and has excelled at developing quarterbacks throughout his career,” Bielema said. “I know he is very excited about running a pro-style offense and handling a game the way we typically have at Wisconsin. I

Minnesota tops Indiana; Wisconsin drops Purdue

Minnesota survived a furious second-half comeback effort by Indiana in Bloomington to beat the Hoosiers 77-74 to win the Gophers’ first conference game of the season. Cody Zeller led Indiana with 23 points and eight rebounds. Have you seen our “Best of Gus Johnson” video calls yet? We’ve got some good ones from tonight.

Wisconsin center Konz declares for NFL draft

Wisconsin junior center Peter Konz announced Tuesday that he will forgo his senior season and enter his name into the 2012 NFL Draft. A Rimington Trophy finalist this season, Konz started 31 games at center for Wisconsin over the last three years. This year he was named first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches’ Association and Pro Football Weekly. He was also a first-team All-Big Ten choice by the league’s media. “As you’ve probably heard, I have decided to forgo my senior season and enter the NFL draft,” Konz said. “Because of the support I have received, the degree I
