Look ahead to 2012 season: Best of Week 7

Each week of the college football season offers a variety of games for fans to watch. I’m taking a super-early look at each week of the Big Ten season as a way to preview the 2012 campaign. I’ve already completed the first six weeks – Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5 and Week 6 – and now it’s time to take a look at Week 7. Find it in this post. Storylines: Another abbreviated Saturday, as there are only five games on the menu with Penn State and Nebraska being off. All eyes will be on

Dienhart: Ranking the 2012 Defensive Backs

The secondary looks like a strong position in the Big Ten in 2012. Four of the eight defensive backs named first- or second-team All-Big Ten by the coaches in 2011 are back: Michigan State’s Johnny Adams and Isaiah Lewis, Ohio State’s C.J. Barnett and Purdue’s Ricardo Allen. Three named first- or second-team by the media return: Iowa’s Micah Hyde, Lewis and Adams. With three selections, Michigan State is well-represented in my ranking of the top 10 defensive backs in the Big Ten for 2012. The Spartans also had three players ranked among the top 10 linebackers. Bottom line: Michigan State

Look ahead to 2012 season: Best of Week 6

Football season can’t come soon enough. To help get everyone ready for the 2012 season, I’m taking a very early look at each week’s slate of games. I’ve already done the first five weeks – Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4 and Week 5 – and now it’s time to consider Week 6. Find it in this post. Storylines: The second week of conference action lacks pizzazz. It’s also a light week of action with just five games, as Minnesota and Iowa are off. The only captivating matchup is Nebraska’s visit to Ohio State. The last time the

Look ahead to 2012 season: Best of Week 5

People keep telling me they’re ready for football.  OK, but don’t ignore summer just yet. Still, I’m going to keep rolling out my 2012 Big Ten football season schedule analysis by week with Week 5 right here. Oh, you missed the first four? Then please allow me to introduce you to Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4. Storylines: Welcome to the opening Saturday of conference games. And there are two whoppers to kick off Big Ten action with Ohio State playing at Michigan State and Wisconsin traveling to Nebraska. Thank you, football gods! In case you are wondering:

Friday Links: Did Vandenberg Get Snubbed Again?

It’s Friday. And you know what that means: The weekend is near. I may be from the old school but working for the weekend never gets old to me. So before you hop in that sweet VW Rabbit, pop this song into your 8-track and drive home, check out my take on the Big Ten football news links in this post. Please. Snubbed again: The disrespect for Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg continues to roll in. First we find out the mighty Phil “my magazine is bigger than War and Peace” Steele doesn’t even rate the Hawkeye senior as one of

Look ahead to 2012 season: Best of Week 4

I’m continuing my super-early look at each week of the 2012 Big Ten football season as a way to preview the entire campaign. Here’s my Week 4 schedule analysis in this post and watch our feature on Michigan State’s memorable 2010 win over Notre Dame now. And you can catch up by looking back now at my Week 1, Week 2 Week 3 posts. Storylines: The last week of full-scale non-conference games, as Purdue (Sept. 27 Marshall) and Indiana (Oct. 20 at Navy) still will have non-league contests. … Be careful, Illinois. Led by rising star coach Sonny Dykes, Louisiana

Thursday's Links: Dreaming Up A Penn State Start

Just like clockwork, your daily Big Ten football links are here. Some interesting stuff, including talk of Penn State perhaps being a sleeper and a look at Phil Steele’s All-Big Ten grid teams. Life is good, people. Fast starters? Could Penn State be a sleeper this season? It seems like a long shot, given the new schemes to learn and personnel issues at quarterback, receiver, tight end and in the secondary. But some feel the Nittany Lions could—COULD—start 9-0. Check out what Patriot-News writer Bob Flounders crafted. Really. I’m not making this up. Their first nine games are: Ohio At

Look ahead to 2012 season: Best of Week 3

Each week of the college football season offers a variety of games for fans to watch. I’m taking a super-early look at each week of the Big Ten season as a way to preview the 2012 campaign. Find my Week 3 schedule analysis in this post and watch our feature on Michigan State’s memorable 2010 win over Notre Dame now. Here’s my Week 1 and Week 2 posts, too, if you missed them. Storylines: Arkansas State will be Nebraska’s third foe in a row with a new head coach, with former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn in control. The Cornhuskers need

Dienhart: Ranking 2012's Big Ten LBs

The linebacking spot may be the most talented of any position on defense in the Big Ten in 2012. Wisconsin’s Chris Borland and Mike Taylor; Michigan State’s Denicos Allen; Illinois’ Jonathan Brown; Penn State’s Gerald Hodges all are back after earning either first- or second-team All-Big Ten accolades in 2011. The only linebackers who earned first- or second-team All-Big Ten honors who are gone are Nebraska’s Lavonte David and Ohio State’s Andrew Sweat. And of those two, only David was selected in the NFL draft (second round/Buccaneers). Penn State’s Nate Stupar also was picked (seventh round/Raiders), but he was just

Wednesday's Big Ten web links: Click, read, enjoy

Wanna make your Hump Day more enjoyable? Check out these Big Ten football links. Click, read, enjoy. Yes, it’s really that simple. A GEOGRAPHIC APPROACH: Should the Big Ten switch to geographical divisions? It’s a question that Pat Harty of the Iowa City Press-Citizen recently asked after the Big Ten announced its 2015-16 football schedules that include some quirks. Harty is hacked off by the fact Iowa and Wisconsin don’t play annually. He’s also miffed that Iowa and Illinois won’t play for six consecutive seasons and that Iowa and Purdue is a protected rivalry. Hard to argue with any of
