The 2014 NBA Draft is quickly approaching as teams across the league are setting their draft boards in preparation for June 26th. The Big Ten is expected to be well-represented this year, as Gary Harris, Nik Stauskas, Adreian Payne, Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III have all appeared in the first round of various NBA mock drafts.

Dienhart: Michigan State's 2014 schedule analysis

Everything came up roses, literally and figuratively, for Michigan State last season. The Spartans won their first Big Ten title since taking a share of the 2010 crown. And Michigan State went to its first Rose Bowl since the 1987 season, beating Stanford to finish 13-1 overall en route to ranking No. 3 in the polls. How dominating were the Spartans? They won every Big Ten game by double-digits, which never had happened in league annals. What’s in store for the encore for Mark Dantonio’s crew? Questions dot Michigan State’s outlook. The defense lost six key starters, and three starting

Tommy Armstrong Jr.

Tommy Armstrong mentored by Brett Favre

One of the biggest questions facing Nebraska’s football team this season is who will replace Taylor Martinez? It looks like the leading candidate right now is sophomore Tommy Armstrong Jr., who played in nine games last season as a redshirt freshman following an early-season injury to Martinez. It looks like Armstrong is doing everything in his power to get the upper hand on Nebraska’s quarterback competition, including receiving tips from future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre. Armstrong tweeted out the following message on his Twitter account and attached a photo with Favre on Instagram. Blessed to workout with

Which B1G teams have most NBA picks in last 10 drafts?

The Big Ten is known for having a rich history and tradition of outstanding basketball. In fact, the Big Ten has won a total of 10 national championships, with the first one dating back to 1940 (Indiana) and the latest in 2000 (Michigan State). During that time period, the Big Ten has sent numerous players to the NBA, many of who have gone on to have successful pro careers. That trend should continue this year as the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft is loaded with Big Ten talent. ESPN Basketball Insider Jeff Goodman projected five Big Ten players to go in

How about a 10-game Big Ten football schedule?

You may have read recently about the Big Ten considering scheduling its own league schools as “non-conference” games as a way to fill out schedules in the future. I don’t know about you, but I was a bit surprised to hear that. And, I don’t like the idea. Instead, why not just have a 10-game Big Ten schedule? It’s a notion I made reference to in a recent story. The coaches may groan about it. But who else would? No one. Fans and TV would love it, because it results in an extra quality game every year and shortens the

Dienhart: Michigan's 2014 schedule analysis

There is a sense of urgency around Ann Arbor as Brady Hoke and his short-sleeved shirts enter their fourth season at the helm. In 2013, Michigan saw a 6-1 start melt into a forehead-slapping 7-6 finish, as the Wolverines went 1-5 down the stretch capped by an ugly bowl loss to Kansas State. And things could have been worse, with close calls vs. Akron and UConn and a triple overtime win at Northwestern. Add it all up, and Hoke has seen his win total go from 11 to eight to seven. Not a good trend. A moribund offense played a

Michigan notches shutout win over Kansas on Senior Day

Four pitchers combined on the University of Michigan baseball team’s first shutout of the season as the Wolverines blanked No. 22 Kansas, 4-0, Sunday afternoon (May 18) on Senior Day at the Wilpon Complex, home of Ray Fisher Stadium. All five U-M seniors contributed to the win in the regular-season finale. Fifth-year seniors Logan McAnallen, Ben Ballantine, and senior Alex Lakatos went the first 5.2 innings on the mound for the Maize and Blue. McAnallen faced the minimum in the first, passing it to Ballantine, who struck out three in two innings of work to earn the win. Lakatos went
