Mailbag: Huskers survive rough six-game stretch

The season is winding down, but the questions continue to pour in. Questions about the bowl matchups are trending. And some wonder about who will be in the discussion to be Big Ten Coach of the Year. I tackle those questions—and others—in this week’s mailbag. If K-State wins out and is No. 1 in the BCS standings, doesn’t that give the Fiesta Bowl first pick to select an at-large team? What’s to keep the Fiesta from picking Notre Dame ahead of the Rose Bowl? And if that happens, who would the Rose Bowl replace them with then? – Matt My

'Journey' tracks Braxton Miller, others tonight

The next episode of “The Journey 2012” presented by Best Buy airs at 7:30 p.m.  t0night and features looks at three more Big Ten football stories: Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, Northwestern’s Venric Mark, and Indiana Senior Day. Watch a short preview here and find bonus clips for tonight’s episode in this post. Specifically tonight … Ohio State’s Miller lets us follow him both on and off the field. Northwestern’s Mark has gone from from WR/return specialist to become one of the Big Ten’s best running backs. See Senior Day at Indiana through the eyes of fifth-year senior offensive lineman Will

Denard Robinson

Links: Robinson's elbow, The Fumble & more

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has missed the last two games with a right elbow issue. It has been a heck of way for his senior season to come draw to a close. What if he can’t play Saturday on Senior Day? It’s a possibility. See what Nick Baumgardner and Kyle Meinke of MLive.com say about that topic—along with other Big Ten news in my daily links. If Robinson can’t play against Iowa this weekend in the Big House, it will be unfortunate. He deserves to go out in grand fashion at a school he has played such a big role

No. 5 Michigan dominates Cleveland State

 Tim Hardaway Jr. had 17 points and six rebounds, and No. 5 Michigan advanced to the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off with a 77-47 victory over Cleveland State on Tuesday night. It was the third straight victory by at least 30 points for the Wolverines (3-0), who shot 51 percent from the field against a Cleveland State (2-1) team that was coming off an overtime win the day before. Nik Stauskas scored 15 points, and Trey Burke added 12 points and seven assists. Michigan went on a 29-5 run to finish the first half. It was 42-14 at halftime.

Crawford's hot hand leads Northwestern past Texas Southern

Northwestern senior guard Drew Crawford‘s hot start sparked the Wildcats, as his game-high 20 points, all in the first half, propelled them to a 79-49 win in their season opener against Texas Southern Tuesday night. Crawford scored 5 seconds into the game off the opening tip and never let up, hitting 8 of 9 shots in the first half including four 3-pointers. The Wildcats’ defense pressured Texas Southern (0-2) the entire game, aided by five players 6-foot-8 or taller which limited the Tigers’ effectiveness in the post. Texas Southern failed to crack double digits until forward Aaron Clayborn‘s layup with

Big Ten Heisman tracker: Bell reenters list

The Heisman chase still appears a bit muddled as we enter the home stretch. I think most agree that Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is the clear leader, but his lead isn’t untouchable. And the spots behind him remain in flux. The race to stay in the chase features players like Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Oregon’s Kenjon Barner, USC’s Marqise Lee and Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o, among others. You also can put Ohio State’s Braxton Miller in that group, too. Here’s how I shakedown the Big Ten’s Top Three Heisman contenders. [RELATED: Week 12 Power Rankings | Week 12 Player

William Gholston

Lande's Big Board: A spotlight on Gholston

On Tuesday night’s “The Next Level,” BTN NFL draft expert Russ Lande revealed his latest Big Ten Big Board. His emphasis this week: Michigan State defensive end William Gholston, the same guy who spent the first few weeks of the season in the No. 1 spot. Hear what Lande thinks about Gholston and see his entire Big Board in this video. Lande’s Big Board (11/13/12) 1. Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State 2. Taylor Lewan, OL, Michigan 3. Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin 4. William Gholston, DE, Michigan State 5. Akeem Spence, DT, Illinois 6. Ricardo Allen, CB, Purdue 7. Kawann Short,

Curt Phillips

Dienhart: Week 12 Big Ten questions

Week 12 is upon us, and the questions persist for each school. Chief among them this week centers around Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips and his ability to pass the football against Ohio State. If Phillips can’t chuck it effectively, the Badgers may have a difficult time beating the Buckeyes. He certainly didn’t need to throw much last week at Indiana. But he likely will vs. Ohio State. Here are my key questions for each team this week. Illinois Will the offense find life? This seems like a terminal question for an attack that’s last in the Big Ten in scoring

Soccer Report: Reviewing the Big Ten tourney

This year’s Big Ten soccer season will certainly be remembered for its parity. You know you have a well-rounded, well contested league when a No. 5 seed plays a No. 3 seed for the title. Yet again, the analysts and so-called ‘experts’ got it wrong as Damon Rensing and the Spartans produced heroics by the lake to claim their third Big Ten Tournament title, and their first since 2008. It was a tremendous tournament from start to finish. Game One saw the exit of my favorites Indiana, as Michigan State did the double over the Hoosiers with a thoroughly deserved

Big Ten Links: Here comes Badgers vs. Buckeyes

Are Ohio State and Wisconsin rivals? Apparently so. Sure, Buckeyes-Badgers isn’t on par with Buckeyes-Wolverines. It’s not even close. Still, it’s a rivalry. Check that out and other newsy tidbits in my daily links. The burgeoning Wisconsin-Ohio State feud was fueled the last time the Buckeyes visited Madison in 2010. Ohio State arrived with a No. 1 ranking and left with a 31-18 loss that cost the Buckeyes a shot at playing for the national title. Last year, Ohio State knocked off Wisconsin, 33-29, with a game-winning touchdown pass in the waning seconds. What’s a stake this Saturday? Ohio State
