Dienhart: Iowa's 2014 schedule analysis

If you see Kirk Ferentz smiling a lot, you’ll know why after looking at the Iowa schedule. No Iowa coach would admit it, but this is a schedule to die for, a chance to get fat, happy and maybe win Iowa its first Big Ten championship since 2004. Heck, even master cupcake scheduler Bill Snyder of Kansas State has to be jealous of this low-calorie menu. There’s a good chance Iowa will be favored in every game. Let me type that again: There’s a good chance Iowa will be favored in every game. Iowa opens with three home games, which

Mel Kiper lists six Big Ten early-impact rookies

ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. recently posted three pieces on potential early-impact rookies. His first piece focused on rookies drafted in the first round, the second on rounds 2 and 3, and the third on those drafted in rounds 4-7. There were a total of six Big Ten players listed in the three articles. Here is a look at those six Big Ten prospects and what Kiper Jr. had to say about each of them.

Dienhart: Indiana's 2014 schedule analysis

Indiana hasn’t been to a bowl since 2007. Kevin Wilson is getting the Hoosiers closer, going from one, to four, to five wins in his three seasons in Bloomington. A postseason trip almost happened last year, if not for tough losses to Navy and Minnesota. Just like last season, Indiana will be propelled in 2014 by one of the Big Ten’s top offenses. But will the defense be better? Wilson is banking on a coordinator shift helping, bringing in Brian Knorr to run what has been a horrid unit during Wilson’s run. Knorr has installed a 3-4. But, a scheme

Replacements for every Big Ten NFL draft pick

The 2014 NFL Draft is officially in the books, which means it’s time to look ahead to who will replace the Big Ten’s freshly minted pros this fall. Thirty players were drafted, including four first-rounders, so there are plenty of big shoes to fill. Let’s check out the potential replacements for every Big Ten player selected in the draft.

NFL Draft: Which player landed in best situation?

Thirty former Big Ten stars were selected in the 2014 NFL Draft. There were four Day 1 picks, 12 Day 2 picks and 14 Day 3 picks. Which player landed in the best situation, though? That’s what the team was wondering. See its picks, plus Big Ten fans’ Twitter nominations, in this post. Tom Dienhart: CB Darqueze Dennard (Michigan State), Cincinnati. Anyone who follows Cincinnati knows cornerback was the team’s biggest area of need. To see Darqueze Dennard slide to their spot was a bonus for the Bengals. Terence Newman is aging and likely will be gone after this

Tim Beckman

Dienhart: Illinois' 2014 schedule analysis

As Year Three of the Tim Beckman era downs, a sense of urgency has set in around Champaign-Urbana. When will Beckman deliver a bowl? Since arriving from Toledo amid a glow of hope after the Ron Zook era was unplugged, Beckman has gone 6-18 overall and 1-15 in the Big Ten. And that lone conference triumph came last year vs. a Purdue team that went 0-8 in the Big Ten and 1-11 overall. But progress was made in 2013, especially on offense. (Thank you, offensive coordinator Bill Cubit.) If the defense comes around, Beckman could break through to the program’s

Dienhart: A look at cross-division foes, from 1-14

The Big Ten has altered divisions for 2014, going to an East-West format that is geography based after three seasons of the “competitive-balanced” Leaders and Legends Divisions. Each school will play the six other schools in their division, plus two cross-division foes. Not all cross-division foes are created equal, though, and I rank the draws in this post. To review, here’s how the divisions will look as the Big Ten goes to 14 teams with Rutgers and Maryland coming aboard: EAST Indiana; Maryland; Michigan; Michigan State; Ohio State; Penn State; Rutgers WEST Illinois; Iowa; Minnesota; Nebraska; Northwestern; Purdue; Wisconsin Here’s

Buckeyes go to bat for teammate Zach Farmer

Ohio State baseball players are determined to help out teammate Zach Farmer, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia in late April. The Buckeyes and staff – 37 in all – swabbed their cheeks with Q-Tips Monday to see whether they are a match for Farmer, or anyone else in the nation.
