Ranking Big Ten schools on recruiting appeal

I was on a radio show in Omaha today and was asked to rank the top five Big Ten schools on their recruiting appeal. That got me thinking about how I would rank the schools 1-12 based on what they have to offer from a recruiting standpoint. Here is a fun, interesting exercise with Signing Day in our rear-view mirror. [ MORE: What’s the success rate of Big Ten recruits ] 1. Ohio State.

Athlon Sports: Tom Izzo is nation's No. 1 hoops coach

It’s good to be Tom Izzo and the Michigan State basketball team. One day after the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook ranked the Spartans No. 1 in its preseason poll, Athlon Sports named Izzo the nation’s top college hoops coach. Neither result is much of a stunner, especially when one considers what the Spartans return and what Tom Izzo has done in his career.

The losses: Purdue at Cincinnati, 42-7; Iowa to Northern Illinois, 30-27; Indiana to Navy, 41-35. None of those are shameful. And there have been some impressive wins. Some big matchups loom. This Saturday, we have UCLA at Nebraska; Wisconsin at Arizona State; Ohio State at Cal; Washington vs. Illinois in Chicago. On Sept. 21, we have Michigan State at Notre Dame. Here is how I rank the Big Ten non-conference wins through two weeks: 1. Michigan

Dienhart: Here are my top 5 Big Ten rivalries

So, Brian Kelly thinks that Notre Dame-Michigan is a regional rivalry? Kelly’s words are getting a lot of attention, naturally, because they come days before the two rivals meet under the lights Saturday at Michigan Stadium. For the record, Kelly backpedaled from his comments today and said that Notre Dame-Michigan is a “great and historic rivalry.” Here’s what Kelly originally said: “I really haven’t seen it as one of those historic, traditional Notre Dame rivalries,” Kelly said on a conference call. “I’ve seen it as just one of those great football games that Notre Dame has played. “For me, I’ve
