Michigan's Hoke knows improvement needed

No sugarcoating it: This is a big season for Michigan and Brady Hoke, who has seen his win total drop each of his three seasons in Ann Arbor. Last year ended in a heap, as the Wolverines saw a 5-0 start melt into a 7-5 finish. The offense was an abomination, as Michigan struggled to get a push up front and run. As a consequence, coordinator Al Borges lost his job and Doug Nussmeier was hired from Alabama. Will it help? Stay tuned. Is there pressure on Hoke, who is 1-2 vs. Ohio State and 1-2 Michigan State? “Why do

UW's Andersen: 'We have open competition at QB'

Wisconsin has been a bellwether Big Ten program, going to Rose Bowls from 2011-13 and just missing a BCS game last year before landing in the Capital One Bowl. Can the beat go on for Gary Andersen in Year Two? “Lots of questions on offense,” said Andersen. “Wide receiver is the big question mark. We need some men to step up.” On defense, the Badgers are replacing their front seven, as key personnel like Beau Allen and Chris Borland are gone. Will growing pains ensue? “We are athletic up front and we are excited about the opportunity to compete to

NU's Fitzgerald: 'We will get back to what we do'

Looking for a bounce-back team? Look no further than Northwestern in what should be an intriguing and wide-open Big Ten West race. The Wildcats began 2013 glowing, coming off five bowls in a row with dreams of a division title dancing in their head. But after a 4-0 start, NU slumped to a 5-7 mark. Close losses were killer. There was a three-point defeat to Minnesota; seven to Iowa; three to Nebraska; and a triple-overtime loss to Michigan. The Wildcats have 18 starters backs and are thinking big—again. Why not? Few coaches emote positivity better than Pat Fitzgerald. [MORE: Read

Debate It: Who will be 2014 passing yards leader?

Quick! Who is the Big Ten’s returning passing yards leader? Chances are, you’re thinking it’s Christian Hackenberg or Nate Sudfeld, right? Nope, it’s Devin Gardner (2,960 yards). Who will find his name on top of the passing yards list at season’s end? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s predictions in this post. PASSING YARDS 2013 leader: Nathan Scheelhaase, Illinois – 3,272 2014 returning leader: Devin Gardner, Michigan – 2,960 Tom Dienhart: Nate Sudfeld, Indiana. He wasn’t the full-time starter last season but still threw for 2,523 yards. Look for the big Californian to push well past 4,000 yards

John Shoop Q&A: 'We have competition at every spot'

There is only one way for the Purdue offense to go after last season: up. That’s good news for coordinator John Shoop. He isn’t dwelling on the past. He’s trying to learn from it and move forward. Negativity won’t help. Positivity will. And Shoop emotes good thoughts. There is some talent to work with in West Lafayette, but this remains a young offense that’s very much a work-in-progress after finishing last in the Big Ten in 2013 in scoring (14.9 ppg); last in total offense (282.9 ypg); last in rushing (67.1 ypg). The passing attack finished sixth (215.8 ypg). Get

Penn State names Sandy Barbour as AD

In a Saturday afternoon press conference, Penn State President Eric Barron introduced the University’s new athletic director, Sandy Barbour — a 30-year veteran in leadership positions within athletics departments at several major institutions. Barbour will begin her tenure as AD on Aug. 18. Until earlier this month, Barbour served since 2004 as athletic director at the University of California, where the Golden Bears produced 19 national team titles and built a state-of-the-art athletic performance center. She was at the athletics helm at Cal for nearly a decade, and was one of the longest-tenured athletic directors in the Pac-12. Barbour replaces

Debate It: Who will be 2014 passing TD leader?

Think Braxton Miller is just a runner? Think again. The electric Ohio State quarterback tossed a Big Ten-leading 24 touchdowns last season. Will Miller, the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, lead the Big Ten again? See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. PASSING TOUCHDOWNS 2013 leader: Braxton Miller, Ohio State – 24 2014 returning leader: Braxton Miller, Ohio State – 24 Tom Dienhart: Wes Lunt, Illinois. I know, the guy never has thrown a pass in Champaign. But I think the Illini attack will be built around Lunt and his ability to

Who's the top celebrity fan for every B1G school?

Every college, it seems, has at least one well-known celebrity backer, whether it be on the gridiron, the hardwood, the diamond or the mat. But who are those figures in the Big Ten? I asked our Twitter followers that very question, and then came up with this list of the top celebrity fans for all 14 Big Ten schools. Here we go. Illinois: Bill Murray Born and raised in Wilmette, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago, Murray is a huge Fighting Illini fan. In fact, Murray followed the 2005 Illini hoops team from the Chicago Regional to the national title
