Dr. Billy Taylor documentary airs tonight

“Perseverance: The Story of Dr. Billy Taylor” is a powerful new documentary exploring the life of one of Michigan’s greatest running backs. The show airs Monday night at 9:30 p.m. ET following a re-air of the Michigan-Notre Dame game on BTN/BTN2Go. The film highlights Taylor’s college glories but also explores the setbacks that destroyed his reputation and set him on a 25-year roller coaster ride to recover it. See a preview of it in this post. Taylor had seemingly turned the corner to greatness when he finished his football career at the Michigan in 1971. Named to the All-American Team

Twitter: Your top tweets and plays from Week 5

Week 5 of the college football season is in the books, and while it wasn’t a jampacked Saturday in the Big Ten, it was certainly an exciting one. Ohio State edged out Wisconsin, 31-24, in a game that certainly lived up to the hype. Iowa found a way to grind out an impressive road win over Minnesota, while Illinois cruised to an easy 50-14 victory over Miami (Ohio). Purdue continues to struggle as the Boilermakers fell 55-24 to Northern Illinois. Through five weeks, Ohio State, Michigan and Northwestern are the only remaining unbeaten teams in the conference. With that said,

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Week 5

Quality over quantity was the theme Saturday in the Big Ten, which had just four games. The marquee matchup between Wisconsin and Ohio State lived up to its billing, as the Buckeyes reaffirmed that they are the best team in the conference. Iowa and Illinois also showed they mean business, as each program continues to surprise. Purdue? Well, it’s gonna be a long season in West Lafayette. See what I learned this Saturday. 1. Braxton Miller is A-OK. He essentially had missed the last three games recovering from a strained MCL in his left knee. Rusty? Out of synch? Off

Power Rankings: Surging Iowa shoots up list

With six schools off and just four games that featured no upsets, there was little movement in my weekly Big Ten power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Iowa was the biggest winner, jumping three spots from No. 9 to No. 6. Conversely, Minnesota fell like a rock from No. 6 to No. 10. Here is my latest Power Poll.

Tom's Take: Week 5 honors, grades, top 10 & more

There were just four games this Saturday, but that doesn’t mean there was any lack of action. Ohio State showed that it means business, and Iowa’s methodical victory at Minnesota sent a message: The Hawkeyes are over the doldrums of a 4-8 2012 season. Here is my wrap up on Week 5 in the Big Ten. Biggest surprise: Iowa. The Hawkeyes dispatched Minnesota with relative ease, using dominating play in the trenches on both sides of the ball to smother the Golden Gophers in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale. This shocked me. I thought Minnesota not only would have

Indiana Hoosiers

Indiana men's soccer tops Ohio State in B1G opener

The defending National Champion Indiana Hoosiers men’s soccer team started conference play right where they left off last season. Femi Hollinger-Janzen and Nikita Kotlov each scored a goal in Indiana’s 2-0 win over Ohio State on Sunday afternoon at Jerry Yeagley Field in Bloomington. Sophomore goaltender Michael Soderlund recorded five saves for the Hoosiers, who out-shot Ohio State, 33-10 in the victory. Alex Ivanov had 10 saves in the loss for Ohio State (2-5-2, 0-1 Big Ten). With the win the Hoosiers improve to 4-4-1 on the season and remain undefeated in Big Ten Openers. Check out the full highlights

Dienhart: OK, Ohio State, it's time to dream 'really big'

How good is Ohio State? The question was posed, oh, at least 14,328 times since the start of the season. The Buckeyes went 12-0 in 2012, the school’s first under Urban Meyer. Alas, NCAA probation kept the Buckeyes from competing for the Big Ten championship or going to the postseason. So, America never got to see if Ohio State was national title caliber. But now, unencumbered by sanctions, Ohio State’s possibilities are endless. And, after tonight’s 31-24 win over Wisconsin, the Buckeyes can begin to dream big. Really big.
