Dienhart: Purdue's 2014 schedule analysis

As far as debuts are concerned, Darrell Hazell endured a rough one at Purdue. His maiden voyage in West Lafayette included myriad blowouts along the way to a 1-11 season that saw Purdue go winless in the Big Ten. And the lone victory came vs. FCS Indiana State. And even that was a close call. Add it all up, and it may have been the worst season in school history. So, there’s only one way for the Boilermakers to go in Year Two under Hazell, right? No doubt, more players are buying into what Hazell is selling. But there’s still

Vote for Sam Travis for 2014 Golden Spikes Award

Big Ten Player of the Year Sam Travis is the Big Ten’s lone semifinalist for the 2014 Golden Spikes Award, handed out to the nation’s top baseball player. Travis hit .342 with 10 home runs and 52 RBI to help lead Indiana (42-13, 21-3) to its second consecutive sweep of the Big Ten titles (regular season & tournament). The first baseman recorded a sparkling .998 fielding percentage, to boot.

Comparison game: B1G prospects to current pros

The NBA Combine is complete, the lottery results are in, and the much-anticipated NBA draft is 30 days away. With that said, experts are predicting there to be plenty of Big Ten names called on draft night. Indiana’s Noah Vonleh, Michigan’s Nik Stauskas and Michigan State’s Gary Harris and Adreian Payne have all appeared in the lottery of several recently released NBA mock drafts. But, which current NBA players do experts compare these incoming rookies to? I asked Sporting News college hoops writer and BTN contributor Mike DeCourcy for his comparisons, and you can find his full list below. [

Dienhart: Penn State's 2014 schedule analysis

There is much anticipation around the unveiling of the James Franklin era. Franklin brings endless energy along with an impressive resume to State College, Pa., making Vanderbilt into a winner prior to his arrival. For his next act, Franklin will look to continue to build on what Bill O’Brien did in two seasons. Before leaving for the Houston Texans, O’Brien defied the odds by going an aggregate 15-9 overall and 10-6 in the Big Ten while dealing with harsh NCAA sanctions that chipped away scholarships and also included a bowl ban. The postseason ban remains and depth will continue to


Dugout fun, Big Ten baseball tourney style

The Big Ten and NCAA record crowds weren’t the only ones enjoying themselves at the 2014 Big Ten Baseball Tournament. No, the players had more than their share of good times throughout the five-day tourney at TD Ameritrade Park. Most of the fun happened in the dugout, usually during a coach’s BTN in-game interview. Watch some of our favorite off-field fun from the event in this video feature. 2014 Big Ten All-Tournament Team P – Christian Morris, Indiana P – Aaron Bummer, Nebraska P – Kyle Kubat, Nebraska C – Joel Fisher, Michigan State 1B – Dan Olinger, Minnesota 2B

Indiana, Nebraska make NCAA baseball tourney

Indiana and Nebraska landed spots in the 2014 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship, announced Monday by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee. The Hoosiers landed one of the top eight seeds, a first for a Big Ten institution. Both Big Ten squads played this past weekend in the Big Ten tournament championship with the Hoosiers beating the Huskers 8-4. Look back at all of that tournament with stories and videos here.

Urban Meyer

Dienhart: Ohio State's 2014 schedule analysis

Ohio State came oh-so-close to greatness last season in Year Two under Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes won their first 12 games after going 12-0 in 2012. But Ohio State lost the Big Ten championship game to Michigan State, which ruined its national title hopes. Meyer and OSU welcome back a lot of talent. The offense teems with skill, led by quarterback Braxton Miller. But the line must replace four starters. The defense will be led by the best line in the Big Ten, but the back seven has been reworked. And new co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash has been tasked with

Kyle Schwarber

Kyle Schwarber shows his 'swag' after a home run

Hitting home runs has become second nature for Indiana slugger Kyle Schwarber. But hitting a go-ahead homer in the Big Ten championship game at TD Ameritrade Park probably meant a little more to the Hoosiers’ junior catcher than his previous 37 home runs. With the game tied 3-3 in the bottom of the fifth inning, Schwarber stepped up to the plate and launched a solo shot into the right field stands on a 1-0 pitch. It looks like Schwarber knew it was gone the second he hit it as he flips his bat and shows a bit of swag before
