[ MORE: 5 things Tom Dienhart learned | Tweets from practice ] The Boilermakers have a nice collection of defensive tackles. Junior Jake Replogle is a playmaker on the interior. Fellow junior Ra’Zahn Howard has trimmed down and could be a force on the nose. Senior Ryan Watson moves well. Senior Michael Rouse needs a big send-off and looks ready. Purdue is using more “tempo” on offense as a way of keeping defenses off balance. And that tempo offense

[ MORE: See our team’s tweets from Purdue football practice ] Our crew got the chance to watch the Boilermakers practice on Wednesday. Here are five things I learned after watching the practice. 1. The offensive line should be good. No doubt, this is the best front in Darrell Hazell’s three seasons in West Lafayette. The unit his regime inherited was a disaster. This group has size, experience and depth; the bodies look better. And the

The BTN bus has left Indiana practice, and now it’s time to share some nuggets I gathered while watching the Hoosiers in action Monday morning. [ MORE: 5 things Tom Dienhart learned | View our tour schedule ] There is a football attached to a spring on a pole on both sides of the entrance to the practice field. As defensive players walk onto the field, they slap at the ball. Hey, it’s all about getting used to creating turnovers. This season, Kevin Wilson has altered his practice routine, having the team go hard early and taper down as the

He’ll work with offensive coordinator Ed Warinner, who will call the plays with Tom Herman off to coach Houston. Beck will work from the press box and Warinner will be on the field.

[ MORE: Ohio State practice notebook | See our Ohio State tweets ] Here are five things I learned at Ohio State practice. 1. The receivers look good. This was one unit that suffered some significant attrition with Devin Smith and Evan Spencer gone. But the Buckeyes have a legit star/No. 1 in junior Michael Thomas, one of the nation’s most underrated wideouts. There also is sophomore Noah Brown, sophomore Terry McLaurin and
