Dienhart: Big Ten Championship notes

Injuries are a key factor in any game, and this game is no different. Nebraska will miss the presence of tackle Baker Steinkuhler on the interior of the defensive line. The Huskers need Chase Rome—among others—to step up with Steinkuhler out. And center Justin Jackson is out. It will be Mark Pelini or Cole Pensick at center. In other news, Wisconsin got good news this week when linebacker Chris Borland was cleared to play after hurting a hamstring against Indiana on Nov. 10, forcing him to miss the last two games. His presence will be key in trying to slow

Pelini, Huskers eye first Big Ten football crown

This Big Ten title game is about more than celebrating the culmination of the season and crowning a conference champ. This Big Ten title game is about validating a program—and validating a coach. I’m talking about Nebraska and Bo Pelini. That’s what’s at stake on Saturday night inside Lucas Oil Stadium—the “House the Peyton Manning Built.” For Nebraska, it hasn’t won a conference championship since defeating Texas, 22-6, in the 1999 Big 12 title game in San Antonio, Texas. Each time I type that fact, I shake my head. But, it’s true. The Cornhuskers played in the BCS title game

Title IX: Profiling Michigan's Marissa Pollick

Attorney Marissa Pollick is one of Michigan’s first female varsity letter winners and scholarship athletes, and she now works as a legal consultant for Title IX compliance in collegiate sports. Pollick grew up playing tennis against boys before she started playing for Michigan from 1974, just one year after the team was elevated to varsity status. “We didn’t have a lot ,” Pollick said,. “We had a bathroom in the corner. We had a folding chair. And we would go in and change, and throw out stuff on the folding chair in the bathroom. And that I didn’t complain about.

Friday's links: Gearing up for the B1G game

News of the Big Ten title game percolates, with kickoff set for 8:17 pm ET on Saturday in Indianapolis. One of the interesting stories is Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips, a fifth-year senior who will be making just his fourth career start. Read about that—and other conference grid news—in my daily links. Phillips’ story of perseverance and never giving up despite suffering multiple knee injuries is impressive. It’s quite a contrast to Nebraska counterpart Taylor Martinez, who emerged as a star as a true freshman and never has looked back. For either of their teams to win, they will need to

Big Ten Links: Addressing issues for next year

The good news for Michigan? The Wolverines are going to their second bowl in a row. The bad news? It’s not a BCS bowl. And a big reason why is because of uneven offensive line and tailback play. Oh, and Brady Hoke says there will be no quick fixes to either area. Read about that and other football news in my daily links. How bad was the tailback production in 2012? Kyle Meinke of says Michigan’s tailbacks combined for just 940 yards this year, the worst production in the Big Ten and well off the league average of 1,634.8
