Spartans' defense on the prowl again

It’s mean. It’s nasty. It’s the Michigan State defense. And it has become the signature unit for the signature program in the Big Ten. And no signature unit would be complete without a nickname. Mark Dantonio’s defensive group is aptly called the “Spartan Dawgs.” Perfect. And the leader of this ravenous, snarling group is coordinator Pat Narduzzi. “That defense has been very good,” said Indiana coach Kevin Wilson. “It’s a fast defense, it’s a strong defense and it’s an aggressive defense. No doubt, it has been one of the best in recent years and is a big reason for the


Debate It: Who will be 2014 receiving TD leader?

The Big Ten lost a plethora of talent at wide receiver, including touchdown reception leader Quincy Enunwa, who hauled in 12 scoring grabs. With Enunwa gone, the Big Ten is certain to feature a new TD reception king. Who will it be? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s predictions in this post. RECEIVING TD 2013 leader: Quincy Enunwa, Nebraska – 12 2014 returning leader: Shane Wynn, Indiana – 11 Tom Dienhart: Shane Wynn, WR, Indiana. He paced the Hoosiers with 11 TD grabs last season on just 46 receptions. With Cody Latimer (9 TDs) and Kofi Hughes (7)

10 best quotes from Day 1 of media days

Talk, talk, talk. There was a whole lotta gabbing going on at Big Ten media days in the historic and iconic Hilton on Michigan Avenue on Monday. Here are what I feel were the 10 best quotes of a long, wild day. Watch your coach’s full interview here. Penn State’s James Franklin Q: Some of your players last week talked about you crying and saying you weren’t going to leave Vanderbilt just before you did, and then at Penn State you talked about better facilities at Vanderbilt than there. I’m curious, were you misquoted, or were those comments disingenuous? A:

Delany points to B1G athletic, academic quality

CHICAGO — College sports have been awash in change in recent years. And change isn’t always easy or welcome. But, it’s inevitable for progress to be achieved. It’s an exciting time. And it’s also a time of challenge, as the collegiate model is on the precipice of forever being altered through remarkable NCAA reform—the biggest change of all in these turbulent times of lawsuits, union talk and expansion as leagues position themselves for the 21st Century. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany has been a central figure in this coming new-world of collegiate athletics, helping shape tomorrow with other college leaders.


Urban Meyer stresses offensive line upgrades

It’s strange to think of this, but Ohio State brings a two-game losing streak into the season. It’s true. Look it up. The Buckeyes ended last season with losses to Michigan State and then to Clemson in the Orange Bowl. That followed a 24-0 start to the Urban Meyer regime. Now, for his next act, Meyer is looking to lead Ohio State to its first Big Ten title since … 2009. To achieve that goal, Meyer’s team has some issues to resolve. “No. 1 on the list is development of that offensive line,” said Meyer. [MORE: Read more Media Day


Cat jokes aside, Pelini talks signing day idea

It didn’t take long. In fact, it took just the second question posed to Nebraska coach Bo Pelini before he was asked about the cat he brandished at the spring game. “My cat is enjoying a nap upstairs,” said Pelini, who has softened his image. “I’m not just an intense, competitive animal running around all the time.” So, the legacy of Bo’s cat lives on. But Pelini’s answer to a question about recruiting and Signing Day in particular was interesting. Asked about the practice of “flipping” recruits, Pelini said, “Why do we have to wait until any certain day (to


How does Michigan State stay hungry?

What will Michigan State do for an encore? Last season was one for the ages, as the Spartans went 13-1, won the Big Ten and captured the Rose Bowl. The challenge is to stay hungry. Will MSU still have that chip on the shoulder? That spark? That desire to win big now that the Spartans have scaled the summit? Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio has a lot to work with, especially on offense. There’s QB Connor Cook, RB Jeremy Langford and WRs like Tony Lippett, Macgarrett Kings, Jr., and Aaron Burbridge. The defense? It has become the identity of the
