2013 rankings: How do Big Ten QB units rate?

Quarterback play hasn’t been at an elite level in the Big Ten in recent years. In fact, many feel that’s one reason for the conference’s struggles. But this year’s collection of passers teems with potential. I’ve been rolling out my Big Ten unit rankings here, and I’ve been looking forward to taking on the quarterbacks. Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, the conference’s top Heisman contender, leads the charge. Here’s my ranking of the Big Ten’s complete quarterback units. Agree or disagree? Who will rise up this season? And who might falter? Make your own points at the bottom of this post.

Final Player Rankings: Bell, Hill reenter list

It’s time for my final regular season Big Ten Player Rankings. This week, Le’Veon Bell and Jordan Hill reenter the list following jaw-dropping individual performances. See all the latest changes in this post. Remember, this feature ranks the Big Ten’s top six offensive and defensive players. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa. [RELATED: Tom Dienhart’s Power Rankings ] OFFENSE 1.

Heisman watch: Could Miller benefit from losses?

With Kansas State and Oregon losing in a wild Saturday night, the Heisman race seemingly has opened up. Some straw polls have Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel on top in the Heisman hunt. Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o, Kansas State’s Collin Klein and USC’s Marqise Lee also remain viable. The Big Ten’s biggest beneficiary to the upsets last week is Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller. And he can enhance his resume with a big effort in a win vs. Michigan on Saturday. Beat the Wolverines, and look good doing it, and Miller may at least guarantee a spot in New York for

Week 13 Player Rankings: Gardner gets in

There’s plenty of movement in my latest Big Ten Player Rankings following an entertaining Week 12. For starters, white-hot Devin Gardner debuts on the list. See all the changes inside. Remember, this feature ranks the Big Ten’s top six offensive and defensive players. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.

Miller struggled against Wisconsin’s underrated defense, to the tune of 145

Big Ten Heisman tracker: Bell reenters list

The Heisman chase still appears a bit muddled as we enter the home stretch. I think most agree that Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is the clear leader, but his lead isn’t untouchable. And the spots behind him remain in flux. The race to stay in the chase features players like Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Oregon’s Kenjon Barner, USC’s Marqise Lee and Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o, among others. You also can put Ohio State’s Braxton Miller in that group, too. Here’s how I shakedown the Big Ten’s Top Three Heisman contenders. [RELATED: Week 12 Power Rankings | Week 12 Player

Week 12 Player Rankings: Ball moves on up

It’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Montee Ball moved up a couple spots following his incredible effort at Indiana, and there’s a new name making the list on the defensive side.

Devin Gardner, QB, Michigan: 16-29, 284 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT; 9 car., 47 yards, 2 TD – One week after accounting for three scores in his first start, Gardner did one better in leading Michigan to a 38-31

Heisman watch: Miller can't bolster case this week

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein remains the Heisman front-runner, but his future may be murky after he got hurt last week. If Klein misses time or is ineffective, that would open opportunities for Ohio State’s Braxton Miller and others like Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o and Alabama’s A.J. McCarron, among others, to climb the Heisman ladder. Miller won’t have a chance to improve his resume this Saturday. Ohio State is off. But other Big Ten players could improve their stock in big games. Here is my look at the top three Heisman contenders from the Big Ten, which hasn’t produced a

Week 11 Player Rankings: OSU's Hyde, Shazier debut

It’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. There are a couple of names making their debut on this week’s list, and both play in Columbus, Ohio. What other movement was there?
