Four Big Ten teams ranked in Coaches Poll

The preseason Coaches Poll was released Thursday morning, and four Big Ten teams are ranked. Last year’s Big Ten title game participants Ohio State and Michigan State lead the conference, at No. 6 and No. 8, respectively, while Wisconsin (No. 14) and Nebraska (No. 22) also are ranked. See the full poll in this post.

Is Big Ten East the beast? Perhaps, but let's see

The Big Ten East is a beast. Or at least that’s the perception. The moment the conference announced it was altering divisions, jettisoning the “Legends” and “Leaders” monikers and a competitive balance structure in favor of geographical names and alignment, the feeling has been that the East is the stronger of the two divisions. It’s easy to see why that opinion has been formed. The East features four traditionally heavyweight programs in Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State. History tells us those four programs are among the best in the Big Ten—and nation. Yes, all four aren’t hitting

John Papuchis Q&A: 'We have a very talented group'

Nebraska has been looking for a consistently strong defense the last three years. Well, the Cornhuskers finally may have one. In fact, Nebraska may have one of the best defenses in the Big Ten this fall. The unit has teased in recent years while also suffering some big meltdowns. Who can forget the 2012 Big Ten title game, a 70-31 loss to Wisconsin that saw Nebraska allow 640 yards of offense and 539 yards on the ground? The defense has grown since then, as it continues to work in talented youngsters for a unit that ranked sixth in the Big

Players & coaches sound off on new-look Big Ten

One of the most-talked-about topics at this year’s Big Ten media days was the addition of conference newcomers Maryland and Rutgers. I asked several Big Ten coaches and players about the new division realignment and the choice to add Maryland and Rutgers into the conference. Here is what I got: “I’m just looking forward to playing two new teams. I’m excited to see what their coaches are like and seeing their style of play. I’m just ready and looking forward to getting a chance go up against those guys.” – Michigan QB Devin Gardner “I like it. I think it

Debate It: Who will be 2014 receiving yards leader?

It’s no secret that the Big Ten lost a lot of talented receivers. Just how much, you ask? All seven of last year’s receiving yards leaders are gone, to be exact, and only two (Devin Funchess and Christian Jones) of the top 10 return. Who will lead the Big Ten this year? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks. RECEIVING YARDS 2013 leader: Allen Robinson, Penn State – 1,432 2014 returning leader: Devin Funchess, Michigan – 748 Tom Dienhart: Christian Jones, Northwestern. With Kain Colter gone, the NU offense figures to lean toward the aerial game. And Christian

Iowa is the team to beat in the West Division

Kirk Ferentz isn’t one to get lost in hyperbole. Grand statements? Bold proclamations? They won’t come from the dean of Big Ten coaches who is entering his 16th season in Iowa City. So, don’t expect him to tout and embrace any talk of his team winning the Big Ten West this fall. “I told our players it’s fool’s gold,” said Ferentz, who led Iowa to Big Ten titles in 2002 and 2004. “A year ago we were in the outhouse. I don’t know if we are in the penthouse now, but the meter swings back and forth. All that is

Tonight on BTN: Experts talk Revsine's new book

At 9 p.m. ET tonight, BTN/BTN2Go airs the premiere of The Opening Kickoff: The Tumultuous Birth of a Football Nation. The show’s title comes from a new book written by BTN lead studio host Dave Revsine, who spent the majority of his free time over the last four years poring through microfilm and university archives and conducting original research on football’s early days to put the issues the sport faces today in context. Revsine will be joined in studio by sportswriter Pat Forde, BTN analyst and former Ohio State quarterback Stanley Jackson, author John Bacon and college football historian


B1G Player Survey: Best player, best venue & more

How often do some of the best players from all 14 Big Ten teams gather under one roof? Once a year, at the annual Big Ten media days. To take advantage of the opportunity, we conducted a Big Ten poll that asked one player from every team the same five questions. Who’s the preseason Big Ten favorite? What’s the toughest road venue? See all the results in this post. Editor’s note: Player responses were anonymous, and they could not use their teammates/stadium/coach/uniform in answers.

Braxton Miller: The face of Big Ten football

There was a smile on Braxton Miller’s face as he sat down to field questions from reporters at Tuesday’s Big Ten Media Day session. It was the look of someone who is comfortable with himself. Comfortable with the expectations that lie ahead. Miller may be the most liked player among certain Big Ten fans, and the most unliked among others. But there is a reason to root for Miller this year, and it has nothing to do with being an Ohio State fan, or the fact that he is a preseason Heisman Trophy pick, for the second consecutive season.
