Historic match awaits Big Ten's NCAA finalists

If there was a collective statement set out to be made by the Big Ten coaches and players coming into this year’s NCAA Tournament, then the nation is listening after Thursday night. For the first time in history, two Big Ten women’s volleyball teams will play for the NCAA national title. Penn State and Wisconsin advanced to Saturday’s championship match due in part to the challenges faced in what was arguably the most difficult year of Big Ten volleyball in the league’s history. We look back at those matches and ahead to Saturday’s big event. Also, vote for your predicted

Season Review: Iowa bounces back in 2013

This was a season of redemption for Iowa and coach Kirk Ferentz. Coming off a 4-8 record in 2012 that featured a moribund offense and no bowl for the first time since 2007, some fans were restless. Had Ferentz lost his touch? Would the Hawkeyes miss a bowl for a second season in a row for the first time since a three-season dry spell from 1998-2000? Ferentz quelled skeptics, flipping Iowa’s record and punching a ticket to a New Year’s Day bowl. After 15 years on the job, Ferentz still has it for what remains one of the Big Ten’s

Friday links: A Top 25 football list for 2014 is out

Wow. Make that: Double wow. How is that for a Friday? A “double wow.” Pretty cool, huh? The cause of my double-wow: There is a 2014 Top 25 already out. And, here it is. The highest ranked Big Ten team? Do you have to ask—or click on the link? C’mon. But it is kinda cool to see Minnesota at No. 24. But, there are only three Big Ten teams in this way, way, way too early Top 25 from NationalChamps.net. *** Bob Flounders of Pennlive.com takes an unofficial look at Penn State’s scholarship 2014 count.

Dienhart: Best of the Big Ten Bowls

So many bowls, so little time. That’s where I come in. Think of me as your bowl concierge. Time is precious. With that said, before you go ahead and make any bowl-watching plans, check out my Best of the Big Ten Bowls list. [ MORE: View our 2013-14 bowl schedule ] Best game: This will be the 100th Rose Bowl, so that’s a big posterity factor. Even better: This also may be a heck of a ballgame. Michigan State and Stanford are virtual clones in many ways. Each possesses a blue-collar quality, being built around physical offenses that like to

Dienhart: Top 10 B1G men's hoops games of 2013

The calendar is flipping to 2014, and that means it’s time to rank the top 10 Big Ten men’s basketball games of 2013. Talk about a difficult list! This is like asking a parent to pick their favorite child. Anyway, here’s my list of the 10 best games from the 2013 calendar year. 10. Michigan State 78, Kentucky 74, Nov. 12. The game’s earliest meeting between No. 1 and No. 2 ever and just the fifth of its kind since 1999, No. 2 Michigan State’s narrow victory over top-ranked Kentucky was the perfect start to what many feel is certain

Badgers' Melvin Gordon to return for junior season

(AP) Running back Melvin Gordon will return to Wisconsin for his junior season in 2014. The 1,400-yard rusher said in a statement released by the team Friday that he had room for growth, and that he hoped to get the 19th-ranked Badgers back to the Big Ten title game. He also cited a desire to complete his degree.

Season Review: Indiana falls short of bowl berth

This looked like it would be the season Indiana finally ended a bowl drought that stretched to the 2007 season. There were eight home games, with the first five at home. And there was loads of veteran talent on offense and promising youngsters on defense for a program that was maturing in its third year under ultra-intense Kevin Wilson. Yep, this was gonna be the Hoosiers’ season. Didn’t happen. Behind sophomore quarterbacks Nate Sudfeld and Tre Roberson, the offense did its part under coordinator Seth Littrell, ranking No. 2 in the Big Ten in scoring (38.4 ppg) and No. 2

Thursday links: Forbes.com ranks football teams

This is a great place to start daily links. Forbes.com has ranked the “most valuable” college football teams of 2013. A pretty interesting exercise. The most “valuable” Big Ten franchise: Michigan at No. 5. Next is Ohio State at No. 9; Nebraska No. 10; Penn State is No. 15; Wisconsin is No. 16. I guess I am a bit shocked that Ohio State isn’t No. 1 among Big Ten schools. I don’t care what metrics you use, how can the Buckeyes not be No. 1? Oh, well. It doesn’t really matter. *** The most emotional sports moment of the year?
