What's your Big Ten team's toughest non-con game?

We’ve reached the right side of 100 when it comes to the countdown to the college football season. Three months from now, there will be football. Get excited! Until then, we’re previewing the season. It’s time for Tom Dienhart to single out your team’s toughest non-conference game. ILLINOIS A Sept. 13 trip to Washington will be a good test. The teams met last season in Chicago’s Soldier Field, with the Huskies taking a 34-24 victory to be a buzzkill to a 2-0 Illinois start. The Illini won just two times after the loss to U-Dub, killing the party mood along

Dienhart: Wisconsin's 2014 schedule analysis

The Gary Andersen era began with success in 2013. In fact, Wisconsin had BCS bowl aspirations before losing the finale to Penn State at home. The Badgers return a nice collection of talent led by running back Melvin Gordon. But some questions loom on a defense that must develop a front sevent. And who will be the go-to wideout on offense? On the subject of passing, is quarterback Joel Stave’s job safe? The good news in Madison: Wisconsin will play one of the cushiest schedules in the Big Ten, as it misses all of the top contenders from the Big

NBA Draft: Top 10 draft steals in Big Ten history

Several Big Ten players will begin a new, exciting chapter in their lives after being selected in the upcoming NBA draft. Where former Big Ten stars such as Noah Vonleh, Gary Harris and Nik Stauskas end up is anyone’s guess, but all three have been pegged for the lottery in mock drafts. Those three will likely join a long list of Big Ten players who have become early NBA Draft picks and gone on to have strong pro careers. But not every Big Ten player who has had success in the NBA was selected at the top of the draft.

Underrated Players

Who is Big Ten's most underrated player entering 2014

Names such as Ameer Abdullah, Shilique Calhoun, Melvin Gordon, Randy Gregory, Braxton Miller and Brandon Scherff receive plenty of hype, and for good reason. What about the guys who produce but don’t receive the appropriate fanfare, though? You know, the underrated players. The BTN.com team offered its most underrated players entering 2014, and you can see our picks in this post. Spoiler alert: Running backs were a popular choice.

Penn State camp arrangement rankles SEC

I had to laugh a bit when I read where SEC coaches were hacked off about Penn State taking part in a football camp at Georgia State. Read here, and here. The SEC is so stomping mad that it wants the NCAA to close a loop hole that allows schools to participate in such out-of-state camps. The SEC already has such a ban. So, apparently, everyone else should, too. Some quick background: The NCAA has rules that prohibit schools from running camps out of state more than 50 miles from campus. Penn State skirts the issue since it isn’t hosting

Dienhart: Rutgers' 2014 schedule analysis

Rutgers is ready to take the lid off of its first Big Ten season. And excitement permeates the campus. Great potential looms—as do great challenges. The 2014 schedule is one of those “great challenges,” as it could dampen the enthusiasm of the Scarlet Knights. There are myriad difficult games, thanks to playing in the rugged Big Ten East. And the cross-division games are daunting, too, with Nebraska and Wisconsin on the to-do list. Bottom line: Getting to a bowl for a fourth season in a row will be difficult for Kyle Flood, as he begins his third season as coach.

Merriman: Top B1G draft classes of past decade

The Big Ten is known as being one of the best college basketball conferences in the nation. We have seen countless All-Americans sport Big Ten jerseys and go on to have outstanding NBA careers, from John Havlicek to Earvin “Magic Johnson to Isiah Thomas, to name a few. We know some of the all-time greats, but what kind of NBA talent has the Big Ten produced in recent years? I studied the past 10 years and looked back at all the Big Ten NBA draft picks since 2004. I took note of  how many players were drafted each year, where
