Twitter: Big Ten fans react to Heisman finalists

The finalists for the 2012 Heisman Trophy were announced Monday night, and there are a couple surprises: 1. The list includes only three players; and 2. neither Braxton Miller nor Montee Ball received an invite. No. 1 is the real shocker, however, considering there have been five finalists two of the past three years. The last time there were three: 2008. Here’s the list of worthy finalists: Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Kansas State’s Collin Klein and Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o. Did Miller or Ball deserve an invite? Sure. And if there were four or five candidates, one of them would

Sound off: What do you think about expansion?

In case you missed it this weekend, we’re opening up the lines for you to tell the Big Ten Conference your answers to the key questions surrounding the latest conference expansion. The future additions of Maryland and Rutgers as the 13th and 14th conference members sparked debate, and BTN will be discussing these issues for the entire month of December. Should there be new divisions? Keep the current ones and just add one school apiece? Do the divisions need new names? How important are traditional rivalries, geographic location and competitive balance? How should having 14 members impact the basketball tournaments? We’re asking, and now you can answer in this post.

How did we do? Big Ten title game picks revisited

The regular season is over, the Big Ten title game is in the books, and now it’s time for bowl season (view bowl schedule). Before we offer our bowl predictions, though, it’s time to find out how fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our title game picks. Let’s just say no saw what was coming in Indy. We all picked Nebraska, the Legends Division champ. Nearly 80 percent of the fans went with the Huskers, in fact, and you know the Wisconsin faithful accounted for a significant portion of the votes. With everybody misfiring on the title

Big Ten links: What's next for Penn State?

There is no rest for Penn State coaches, who in addition to recruiting prep players also must fight to retain their current players, who can transfer to other schools without penalty up until the start of training camp next August.

Line up, naysayers: Badgers off to Rose Bowl

INDIANAPOLIS – Wisconsin spent the better part of the last month hearing about how it didn’t deserve to be in the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship Game. Now, for the next month, it will hear that it has no business playing in the Rose Bowl, the program’s third consecutive Grandaddy of Them All. That’s just fine by these Badgers, the Rose Bowl’s first five-loss team. “I don’t care,” Dezmen Southward said. “I really don’t care.” And they shouldn’t. Not after Saturday night’s absolutely dominating 70-31 win over previously streaking No. 14 Nebraska. [RELATED: Dienhart: Fitting punctuation mark on season that
