#BTNLive: Jim Delany on NCAA proposal

The NCAA’s board of directors took the first step toward shifting power to the five largest football conferences on Thursday, endorsing a 57-page plan that calls for giving 65 of the nation’s biggest schools more autonomy in how to fund scholarships, handle health care and decide other increasingly hot-button issues involving their athletes. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany appeared on Thursday’s “#BTNLive” to discuss the latest developments, and you can watch that entire interview in this post. If approved later this year, schools in the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC could implement some rules on their own

NFL Draft history: Big Ten stunners & surprises

Talent evaluation is a dicey proposition. Even with all of the resources that NFL teams have to learn about college players—the NFL Combine, interviews, on-campus workouts, an army of scouts, reels of video—teams still can mess up a pick or stumble into a pleasant surprise. The disappointments become glaring when they happen in the first round, the one round of picks where you would think teams could get correct. And years later, the nice surprises almost jump out off the draft board when you see how a college player went on to exceed expectations in the NFL. Here’s a look

Catch up with Thursday's Big Ten headlines

Northwestern’s union vote will take place on Friday. Hard to really tell what will happen, but results of the vote may not be known for months as the NLRB hears the school’s appeal of it the players are employees. In the meantime, NU is taking no chances, as it has put on a full-court “no union” campaign. This is an interesting passage from the New York Times story: “Players were given new iPads when they arrived for the first day of practice after the N.L.R.B. decision, though the university said the iPads were unrelated to the union process and had

Northwestern union vote coming up on Friday

To unionize or not to unionize. That’s what Northwestern players will vote on Friday in what could be a watershed event in the annals of college sports. Many have speculated that the players will reject the union, based on some public comments by a few Wildcats and the fact Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald has spoken out against it and has counseled players that a union isn’t in their best interest.

NFL Draft: Where could Big Ten prospects land?

As dominant as both the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos were last season, no team in the NFL is perfect. Every organization has a need somewhere, and that is where the NFL Draft comes into play.
