Watch losing Ohio State spring game team mulch Buckeye Grove

Every spring since Urban Meyer took over, the team that loses the spring game is tasked with mulching the program's proud Buckeye Grove, which features nearly 200 trees, one for every Ohio State first-team All-American.

Take a look at our BTN.com All-Spring Football Defensive Team

Earlier today, I posted my All-Spring Football Team for the offensive side of the ball. Now I’ll get into the defensive players who stood out to me and made my All-Spring Football defensive Team after the past few weeks of spring games and practices. As I mentioned then, all available spring football games are on BTN2Go, in case you want to look back. Here are the links to watch: Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, Wisconsin. Let’s get to my defensive team. Keep this post handy and let’s see how it plays

Dienhart: Here's our 2016 All-Spring Football Offensive Team

2016 Big Ten spring football season is over and the 2016 NFL Draft is here. As recent Big Ten football stars move on to their pro careers, new names line up to take their place next fall. BTN.com's Tom Dienhart watched plenty of spring football and he names the offensive players who caught his eye.

Kevin Wilson: 'The QB play, defensive confidence … those are key'

In his fifth season in Bloomington, Indiana, Kevin Wilson enjoyed a breakthrough by leading the Hoosiers to their first bowl since 2007. Now, he wants to take the program another step foward: winning a bowl. Wilson and Co., are on track. But work needs to be done to move up the pecking order in the rugged Big Ten East. [ MORE: Watch replay of the Indiana spring game on BTN2Go ] The offense loses some key players but should be OK with Wilson’s steady hand guiding things. The defense? It remains an albatross around the neck of the program, ranking

Corey Clement

Dienhart: 5 things I learned in Wisconsin spring game

Wisconsin is aiming to get back to the summit in the Big Ten West. But there is work to do as Paul Chryst begins his second season in Madison coming off a 10-3 debut and second-place finish in the West. [ MORE: Watch replay of the Wisconsin spring game on BTN2Go ] Key personnel is gone. And the coaching staff has been impacted with defensive coordinator Dave Aranda leaving for the same post at LSU. Chryst tabbed Justin Wilcox from USC to take over. How will that impact the defense, which was excellent under Aranda? Having a healthy Corey Clement

Dienhart: 5 things I learned in Iowa spring scrimamge

Iowa, fresh off one of the school’s greatest seasons in which it raced to a school-record 12-0 start, capped a successful spring practice Saturday afternoon. Don’t’ look now, but Kirk Ferentz 18th edition of the Hawkeyes could have a shot to repeat as West champs. [ MORE: Watch replay of the Iowa spring game on BTN2Go ] Iowa welcomes back a strong corps of players on both sides of the ball, led by QB C.J. Beathard on offense and CB Desmond King on defense. But there are some concerns as the Hawkeyes. The defense could be a cut-above if the front

Chris Ash

Check out our all-access feature on Rutgers' Chris Ash

Whenever Julian Pinnix-Odrick sees Chris Ash in the hallways of Rutgers' football center, the fifth-year senior tells his first-year coach that it's OK to smile. Ash has cracked a few smiles in wrapping up his first spring practice on Saturday night in front of 14,177 fans.

Tyler O'Connor trying to emerge as Connor Cook's successor

(AP) Tyler O’Connor has been keeping a list of goals in a spot near and dear to any 22-year-old’s heart. [ MORE: Watch replay of Michigan State spring game on BTN2Go ] “The background of my phone has been the goals that I’ve had for this spring,” the Michigan State quarterback said. “I do feel like I’ve accomplished those things, so I feel very good.” O’Connor wrapped up spring practice Saturday, throwing for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Spartans’ spring game. His Green team lost 14-11 to the White team, but O’Connor put up the best passing numbers

Iowa Spring Game

Iowa's defense looks strong heading into 2016 season

(AP) Iowa had hoped that the return of star defensive end Drew Ott would fill out its defense. [ MORE: Watch replay of the Iowa spring game on BTN2Go ] The Hawkeyes should be stout on that side of the ball anyway. Iowa suffered its first major loss in 2016 when the NCAA denied Ott’s appeal for an extra year of eligibility because of a medical hardship. But the Hawkeyes should still have one of the best defenses in the Big Ten next fall, with seven starters back from a unit that allowed just 19 points a game last season.
