After a whirlwind week of speculation, Burke ended the chatter by introducing the 48-year-old New Jersey native as the Boilermakers’ head coach Wednesday. The contract is for six years and comes with a succinct message from Burke: The Cradle of Quarterbacks is about to start rocking again. “We did it because we want to get back to Pasadena,” Burke said. Hazell comes to West Lafayette with a perfect resume. He’s a disciplined student of the game who

Big Ten mailbag: Bielema, Hazell, & expansion

Time to open up the mail bag. And, as you would suspect, the bag was stuffed with questions about Bret Bielema’s shocking move from Wisconsin to Arkansas that still has the nation buzzing. Read all about that—and more. And send me your latest questions and comments at the bottom of this post. I think Bret Bielema is the first Big Ten head coach to leave for another job since Nick Saban bolted Michigan State for LSU in 1999. Why are some writers making it out like there’s a mass exodus of coaches from the conference? – Jonathan I can’t speak

Big Ten Links: Experts examine Bielema's big move

Tuesday’s shocking announcement that Bret Bielema was leaving Wisconsin for Arkansas dominates today’s daily links as writers examine why he left and what it means. Plus, Purdue hired a coach and Minnesota lost a quarterback. Read it all in my daily links. And let me know what you think via my mailbag, Twitter, or the comments section at the bottom of the post. Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer says Ohio State has lost a great villain with Bielema’s departure. And that’s what makes sports great—rivalries and villains, someone or something to rally against. Nothing galvanizes a fan base more—or fuels a rivalry better. *** David

No. 3 Michigan drills instate foe Western Michigan

Trey Burke had 20 points and seven assists, and No. 3 Michigan eased past Western Michigan for a 73-41 victory Tuesday night. The Wolverines (8-0) had actually lost their previous two games against the Broncos, but that was more than a decade ago. Western Michigan (6-2) had won six straight coming into this game, including a victory over South Florida, but the Broncos wasted a chance to stay in the game with the Wolverines, turning the ball over 13 times in the first half. Nik Stauskas scored 11 points for Michigan, and fellow freshman Mitch McGary added 10 on 5-of-5
