Mailbag: Your notes on my recruiting appeal list

It’s time to reach into my Mailbag. Some interesting comments on some of my recent stories. But nothing I wrote in the past week generated as much interest/mail as my story that ranked Big Ten schools on their recruiting appeal. I had several letters like this: Where would Rutgers and Maryland fit into your rankings? – Mike Goffinet Each school will be aboard for their first season this fall, making the Big Ten a 14-team conference. I would put Maryland at No. 8 and Rutgers at No. 10. I have been to College Park, Md., a few times over the

B1G Whiteboard: Setting the stage for this week

An interesting week awaits, as teams jockey to improve their NCAA resume. As for the Big Ten title chase, Michigan State’s loss at Wisconsin on Sunday made things more interesting. The Spartans don’t have much very heavy lifting this week. Conversely, this will be a big week for Michigan, which is trying to keep pace. Here’s a look at what’s ahead. Game of the Week: Michigan at Ohio State. Teams seemingly going in opposite directions. This is the only meeting of the season between these rivals. And, it’s a biggie. After losing five of six games, the Buckeyes have come

Video: Orange Krush reveals true colors at Penn State

Illinois entered Sunday’s game at Penn State riding an eight-game losing streak. The Illini’s struggles nor the long trek to State College, Pa., could keep 120 members of the Orange Krush from making the trip – and, most importantly, continuing its annual prank at a visiting arena. As it it has in previous years, the Orange Krush arrived to the game in the home team’s colors (blue and white), only to later reveal their true colors. VIDEO: Hey, look, it's Penn State fans! No, that's members of @IlliniHoops @Illini_OKrush. Well done. WATCH – — Illinois on BTN (@BTN_Illinois) February

Video: Traevon Jackson hits another clutch shot

If we’ve learned one thing from Traevon Jackson during his Wisconsin career, it’s that he isn’t afraid to take – and make – the big shot. The junior, who has a handful of late game-tying or game-winning shots to his name, added another game-winner in Sunday’s 60-58 victory over No. 8 Michigan State. This time, following an Adreian Payne game-tying triple, Jackson answered with a jumper to avoid overtime and a possible fourth straight home loss. “I put my best defender on him,” Tom Izzo said, “and he made another one.” INSTANT HIGHLIGHT: Here's that Traevon Jackson @BadgerMBB game-winner, if

No. 3 Gophers top No. 1 Lions, win share of Big Ten title

With the victory, the Gophers clinched a share of the 2014 Big Ten Dual Meet Championship. Penn State, which won a share of the title with its victory over Michigan last Sunday, was going for the outright crown.

The 2014 Big Ten Wrestling Championships will be held from March 8-9

Here's one topic mentioned every time your team plays

Watch a conference enough, and you can’t help but notice that every team has a common theme that gets mentioned in every broadcast. Chances are, you know your team’s topic of conversation. But what about the rest of the Big Ten teams? Here’s my recurring subject for every Big Ten team. Illinois. Bruce Weber didn’t recruit Champaign native Rayvonte Rice. Indiana. Yogi Ferrell has a new role now that Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller are in the NBA. Iowa. Depth! Michigan. Tie: Nik Stauskas isn’t just a shooter. And, the Wolverines are without preseason All-America Mitch McGary. Michigan State. Injuries!

Photo: Bo Pelini poses for selfie, and the internet loves it

Bo Pelini can do no wrong. The Nebraska coach continued his run of internet gold Friday night when he posed for a selfie with a Huskers fan. See a couple of the photos in this post. No doubt, we’re seeing a softer side of Pelini recently. Let’s see, in the last month, there was this Twitter exchange on the night of the BCS title game, this story that he wrestled a recruit, and this classic response about @FauxPelini’s cat in the video below. This. Is. Awesome! Bo Pelini says "my cat (@FauxPelini) was w/ me every step of the
