Dienhart: NFL's allure strong for coaches

Competitive people like challenges. And that’s exactly what Chip Kelly is going to get when he takes over the Philadelphia Eagles. Kelly is the latest college coach to make the move to the NFL. It’s becoming a trend in the NFL, the ultimate copycat league. More and more, we are seeing elements of college spread offenses seep into the NFL–and have great success. Have you seen the San Francisco 49ers? Or the Seattle Seahawks? Or the Washington Redskins? The read-option is all the rage. Every NFL teams wants to get some. Defenses are flummoxed! It’s all about offense, offense, offense in


Tonight's 'Journey' focuses on point guards

At 10 p.m. ET tonight, “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013” spotlights the Big Ten’s top point guards. The show airs immediately following the Wisconsin-Iowa game, and then airs again at 3 p.m. Sunday following the Indiana-Northwestern game and again at 8 p.m. Sunday. The point guards featured include Trey Burke, Aaron Craft, Tim Frazier and Andre Hollins. Read more about the show in this post. Here’s what you can expect on the show: We profile Michigan’s Trey Burke, who discusses how returning to school for his sophomore year has made him a better player. Also, we talk to Burke

Today's links: Gophers, Wolverines clash tonight

If it’s Thursday, it must mean there is a big game in the Big Ten, right? Yep. Brace yourself for No. 5 Michigan visiting No. 9 Minnesota. Let’s begin daily links right there. This will be the first meeting of top-10 teams in the venerable Barn since—are you ready for this?—1977. Go back in time in this piece from Marcus Fuller at The Pioneer Press. While watching yet another big, Big Ten game, keep an eye on the point guard battle between Minnesota’s Andre Hollins and Michigan’s Trey Burke. It’s the clash that may decide the game. Burke knows his

Urban Meyer

Dienhart's early 2013 football power rankings

The final punctuation mark has been put on the 2012 season and we closed that latest chapter. Now, we turn the page and look toward 2013. Before you know it, spring football will be here. In anticipation of the fall of 2013, here’s my early, early—and I mean EARLY—look at how the Big Ten could stack up from 1-12. 1. Ohio State. The Buckeyes welcome back lots of talent from a team that went 12-0 in Urban Meyer’s debut. What can Meyer do for an encore? Most of the talent is on offense. And the schedule is very manageable. Bottom

Penn State Halftime

Did You See This? Check out this halftime show

Quick Change. Frisbee Dog. Add shirtless man showing off his abdominal strength to the list of Big Ten halftime entertainment. That was the intermission show for Wednesday’s Michigan State-Penn State game at the Bryce Jordan Center. And our guys loved it, especially analyst Jim Jackson. Listen to Jackson and Dave Revsine analyze the halftime entertainment now. Here’s what Jackson said about the entertainment during our halftime show: “Who needs P90X when you can do that?!” “If that was me, (I’d need) Advil, a stretcher and something else to get me out of that gym, because there’s no way I’d be

Terone Johnson

Balanced attack helps Purdue defeat Nebraska

Terone Johnson scored 18 points to lead four Purdue players in double figures, and the Boilermakers turned back Nebraska’s comeback bid in the second half to defeat the struggling Cornhuskers 65-56 on Wednesday night. A.J. Hammons added 14 points and eight rebounds, D.J. Byrd scored all 12 of his points in the second half on four 3-pointers and Ronnie Johnson had 10 points and six assists as the Boilermakers posted their first Big Ten Conference road win. Purdue (9-8, 3-2) has won two straight games and five of seven. The Huskers (9-9, 0-5), playing without senior forward Brandon Ubel for

Adreian Payne

Payne leads No. 17 Michigan State past Penn State

Adreian Payne scored 20 points after spending the first half on the bench following a morning scuffle with teammate Brandon Dawson, and No. 18 Michigan State held on for a 81-72 victory against Penn State on Wednesday night. Payne, a sturdy 6-foot-10 forward, made up for lost time by dominating the post in the second half. He had 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting in a stretch of six-plus minutes after entering the game with about 16:30 left. Payne added a 3-pointer – only his second made 3 of the year – in the middle of a 20-8 run to help

Andre Hollins

Dienhart: Q&A with Minnesota PG Andre Hollins

Minnesota point guard Andre Hollins knows what’s at stake on Thursday night when No. 5 Michigan visits the Barn. The winner will remain on the heels of Big Ten front-runner Wisconsin. The loser will have two Big Ten losses, shrinking the margin for error as January is about to bleed into February. Each team is coming off a similar loss, with both rallying from big deficits only to come up short after a furious run (Minnesota at Indiana, and Michigan at Ohio State in what was the Wolverines’ first loss of the season). The matchup within the matchup that many

Branden Dawson & Tom Izzo

Dawson, Payne put scuffle behind them in road win

Michigan State basketball players Branden Dawson and Adreian Payne were involved in a scuffle at the team hotel prior to Wednesday night’s game at Penn State, and neither started as a punishment. The two players, who happen to be off-campus roommates, entered the game together four minutes into the second half and helped push No. 17 Michigan State past Penn State, 81-72. Payne, in particular, was a beast when he finally got the call. The junior erupted for a career-high 20 points and six rebounds in 17 minutes. Dawson compiled a nice all-around game, with five points, six rebounds and

Today's links: Stunning win shakes up Big Ten race

Wisconsin’s win at No. 2 Indiana was impressive. Not only that, but the victory pushed the Badgers into sole possession of first place in a Big Ten race that looks to be wide open now. And, get this: Wisconsin isn’t even ranked, while six other Big Ten teams are: Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio State, Michigan State, Illinois. Let’s start the daily links there. The Badgers played smarter and tougher than Indiana, which was an 11-point favorite and now has lost five in a row in Assembly Hall to Wisconsin and 11 overall to the Badgers. What killed Indiana? Lack of
