Bill O'Brien

Watch & read Bill O'Brien's comments

Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien held a press conference Monday morning, and we’ve posted the video in its entirety right here. Also in this post, you can read the entire transcript of O’Brien’s opening statement and Q&A session with reporters. Earlier today, BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart wrote this about O’Brien: “In this day and age, we see ‘loyalty’ uttered often by coaches, but it’s rarely acted upon. Well, O’Brien is an exception. He did the right thing, pledging his allegiance to a sickly Penn State program that many would have turned their backs on in lieu of NFL glory and millions.” Read

Dienhart: O'Brien staying is the right thing

Bill O’Brien is a terrific coach. We saw that in just one season of work at Penn State. He walked into an untenable situation and promptly led a shorthanded team to an 8-4 record (6-2 Big Ten) when most forecast gloom. But, much heavy lifting remains. And O’Brien is going to be around for it. That has the message hammered home during a press conference today at Penn State, in which O’Brien addressed a variety of issues. On if a donor had ponied up $1.3 million to get him to stay: “No. You can ask anyone that knows me; in

BTN LiveBig: Indiana gets the spotlight

“BTN LiveB1G – Indiana” debuts at 9 p.m. ET tonight following the Indiana at Penn State men’s basketball game. The episode will include several stories that showcase the impact of people and programs at Indiana. For example: Caring for the needs of veterans has been at the forefront of a partnership between Indiana’s School of Medicine and the Robert L. Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Indianapolis.  Dr. Kurt Kroenke and his team work with veterans to explore innovative approaches to combat chronic pain, with the goal of creating a model that can help public and private hospital systems around

Trevor Mbakwe

Trevor Mbakwe gets swat, then big-time slam

It took Trevor Mbakwe most of the nonconference season to work his way back from last year’s season-ending knee surgery. Either that, or Tubby Smith just decided to bring him back slowly. It was probably the latter, come to think of it, but the sixth-year senior sure looks good now. In Sunday’s win over Northwestern, we saw Mbakwe at his best, blocking a shot on one end and hammering down a powerful dunk on the other. Watch the sequence now.

After slow start, No. 13 Minnesota rolls past Northwestern

Austin Hollins hit five 3-pointers during an impressive three-minute stretch in the second half (watch the barrage in featured video), finishing with 19 points and sparking No. 13 Minnesota to a 69-51 victory over Northwestern on Sunday night. Hollins missed his career scoring high by one, collecting 17 points during a 26-7 run that gave the Gophers a 45-25 lead. Minnesota (14-1, 2-0 Big Ten) has won 10 in a row for its longest winning streak since it opened the 2008-09 season with 12 straight victories. Dave Sobolewski had 10 points, five assists and four steals for the Wildcats (9-6,

Tom Osborne

Tim Miles, Nebraska give Tom Osborne framed jersey

Before Sunday’s game vs. Wisconsin, Nebraska coach Tim Miles presented recently retired athletic director Tom Osborne with a framed Nebraska jersey. It wasn’t any Nebraska jersey, either. It was the special alternate adidas jersey the Huskers wore Sunday, and it included Osborne’s name above the number, No. 1. Watch the presentation in this video now.

Bo Ryan

Did You See This? Bo Ryan burns Tim Doyle

Let’s get two things out of the way here first: 1.) Bo Ryan gives pretty entertaining postgame interviews, ones often peppered with a joke or two; and 2.) BTN analyst Tim Doyle’s Northwestern career was a lot better than most remember. OK, now that that’s out of the way, it’s time to get to Ryan’s postgame interview with Doyle following Sunday’s 47-41 victory at Nebraska. As the score indicates, the game wasn’t exactly a thing of beauty. And when Doyle mentioned it wasn’t “pretty” and asked Ryan what he said to Nebraska coach Tim Miles in the handshake line, the

The week that was: BTN.com's top 10 videos

Take a quick look at BTN.com’s top 10 videos from the past week, and you’ll notice Ohio State fans miss their football. More specifically, stud quarterback Braxton Miller. A month-plus after Ohio State’s final game, four of Miller’s incredible 2012 highlights made the list. The rest, of course, were basketball.

Wisconsin holds off Nebraska, 47-41

Jared Berggren scored 12 of his 13 points in the second half, Ryan Evans had 10 points and 15 rebounds, and Wisconsin held Nebraska to one basket over the last 6:19 in a 47-41 victory Sunday. The Badgers (11-4, 2-0 Big Ten) won their fifth game in a row and held their ninth straight opponent to 60 points or fewer. The Huskers (9-6, 0-2), coming off a 70-44 loss at Ohio State in their conference opener, have averaged just 42 points the last four meetings with the Badgers.

Tim Hardaway, Jr.

Did You See This? Hardaway one-handed dunk

No. 2 Michigan came up with more than its share of highlights (watch all of them) during Sunday’s victory over Iowa. None, however, were bigger than Tim Hardaway Jr.‘s terrific one-handed slam. In transition, Hardaway Jr. outraced several Hawkeyes down the floor, took the pass from Trey Burke, and threw it down over Iowa’s Eric May. Watch the dunk here, and see some Twitter reaction in this post.
