Sports Illustrated released five regional covers for its College Football Preview magazine Wednesday morning, and Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is one of the cover boys. The publication picks the Buckeyes No. 4 in its preseason top 25, the same spot it was last year, good enough for inclusion in the inaugural College Football Playoff. See Miller’s SI cover in this post.

Countdown to kickoff: East most exciting player?

Kickoff is fast approaching. To help count down the days to Aug. 28, the BTN.com team is discussing one topic every day. Think of it as our countdown to kickoff. Today’s topic: East most exciting player? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other 2014 predictions: Tom Dienhart: Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State. C’mon … can there really be anyone else? Nope. Miller is the ultimate weapon, a true one-man gang who can score any time he touches the ball. His ability to improvise is stupefying, and he’s won Big Ten Offensive Player

B1G Player Survey: Best player, best venue & more

How often do some of the best players from all 14 Big Ten teams gather under one roof? Once a year, at the annual Big Ten media days. To take advantage of the opportunity, we conducted a Big Ten poll that asked one player from every team the same five questions. Who’s the preseason Big Ten favorite? What’s the toughest road venue? See all the results in this post. Editor’s note: Player responses were anonymous, and they could not use their teammates/stadium/coach/uniform in answers.

Braxton Miller: The face of Big Ten football

There was a smile on Braxton Miller’s face as he sat down to field questions from reporters at Tuesday’s Big Ten Media Day session. It was the look of someone who is comfortable with himself. Comfortable with the expectations that lie ahead. Miller may be the most liked player among certain Big Ten fans, and the most unliked among others. But there is a reason to root for Miller this year, and it has nothing to do with being an Ohio State fan, or the fact that he is a preseason Heisman Trophy pick, for the second consecutive season.

2014 Preseason Watch Lists

Dienhart ranks his B1G favorites for every award

America is awash in names, as the official “watch lists” have been revealed for the major college football awards. Who will win the Doak Walker Award? The Butkus Award? Here are my top three Big Ten picks for each bauble. CAMP/MAXWELL (Player of the Year) 1. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State. The dynamic Miller is the quintessential big play waiting to happen. His passing continues to improve, but Miller’s best weapon always will be his feet. No offensive player is more feared. 2. Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State. An underrated athlete, Cook showed moxie in taking over the job last

Last offseason, Braxton Miller was spotted wearing a camera on his helmet. This offseason, the Ohio State star quarterback is wearing something on his face. In an attempt to improve his conditioning, Miller is working out with a Bane-like Elevation Training Mask. Learn more about it here, and see a picture of it in this post. [ MORE: Like this story?

Ranking the Big Ten's top 10 QB-WR duos

The Big Ten is set to return a ton of talent at quarterback, but the same can’t be said at wide receiver. With names like Jared Abbrederis, Corey Brown, Quincy Enunwa, Jeremy Gallon, Cody Latimer and Allen Robinson all off to the NFL, there will be plenty of new names atop the receiving leader list. This got me thinking about the top quarterback-receiver duos in the Big Ten. Here’s my top-10 list. * I made it a point to not list the same quarterback more than once.

Ultimate Big Ten Quarterback

Building the ultimate 2014 Big Ten quarterback

The Big Ten has featured plenty of great quarterbacks, including Drew Brees, Troy Smith and Russell Wilson, to name a few. But as good as these guys were, none of them were perfect in every area of the game. This got me thinking, what would my perfect Big Ten quarterback look like? You know, a quarterback with the ideal arm strength, size, speed, accuracy, smarts and ability to perform in the clutch. I chose six Big Ten quarterbacks and combined their skill sets (hypothetically, of course) to create one, ultimate Big Ten signal-caller. Here we go. [ MORE: Four Big
