Did You See This? Coach rips off shirt, pumps up team

Coaches will go to extreme measures to pump up their players. We saw a perfect example of it prior to Saturday afternoon’s Penn State-Purdue football game. There, on the sideline of Ross-Ade Stadium, Penn State strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald took off his shirt and did a belly flop, of sorts, to get his players excited. It seemed to work, as Penn State cruised 34-9. Watch Fitzgerald in action now.

Football Report: Big Ten QB to lead final drive

Here’s a hypothetical for Big Ten fans: Which Big Ten quarterback would you want leading your team on a final drive?’s Tom Dienhart and Brent Yarina discussed the topic a few weeks ago, and here were their answers. Plenty has changed since then, though, so we posed the question to our “Football Report” analysts Monday night. Watch their answers in this video. Interestingly, neither Howard Griffith nor Chris Martin took Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez, the quarterback fresh off a third double-digit, second-half comeback in five Big Ten games. Nope, Griffith’s answer came down to the system this hypothetical team runs.

Best of Week 11: Much to like about Martinez vs. McGloin

Just three weeks remain in the regular season, as schools continue to jockey for division championships and bowl eligibility. Week 11 has some interesting games, beginning with Wisconsin’s trip to Indiana that drips with Leaders Division title implications. Northwestern plays at Michigan, with the loser facing long odds of getting back into the Legends Division chase.

Devin Gardner

Monday's Links: Spin around today's headlines

Upon closer inspection after a spectacular effort in a win at Minnesota, Michigan’s Devin Gardner may be a quarterback after all even though the uber talent was moved to receiver in camp.  I’m not gonna argue that. But some feel despite Gardner’s standout effort on Saturday, the Michigan offense still needs Denard Robinson. Read about that and other hot Big Ten topics in my daily links. Let’s get to them … *** What does a sixth win do for Penn State, you ask? Nittany Lions safety Malcolm Willis says it opens eyes everywhere. Check him out in this video. No

How did we do? Week 10 picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 11, we need to review how fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 10 predictions. Believe it or not, we all went a perfect 5-0 in a week that, to be honest, wasn’t littered with many tough games. So, we’ll enter Week 11 with fans and Dienhart tied for the top spot. SEASON RECORDS Tom: 59-20; .747 fans: 59-20; .747 Brent: 56-23; .709 Michigan 35, Minnesota 13 Tom’s pick: Michigan, 29-28 – The Wolverines’ superior defense will be the difference in what will be a back-and-forth battle

Week 11 Power Rankings: Don't sleep on Indiana

Not a lot of movement in my latest Power Rankings following Week 10 of the season, as Ohio State and Nebraska retained possession of the top two spots. Indiana was the biggest mover, as it continued to turn heads with a home win over Iowa. See where all 12 teams land this week in this post. 1. Ohio State (10, 6-0). The Buckeyes moved to 10-0 with a 52-22 win over Illinois. Now, Ohio State has a week off to prep for the last two games. And they are biggies: at Wisconsin and vs. Michigan. Can Ohio State finish the

Illinois holds off West Chester in final tuneup

It wasn’t pretty, but the Illinois men’s basketball team held on to beat West Chester, 75-66, in its exhibition finale Sunday at Assembly Hall. Tracy Abrams scored 17 points to pace four Illini in double figures. Twenty-one Illinois turnovers allowed West Chester to keep the score closer than expected. Illinois opens the regular season at 8 p.m. ET Friday vs. Colgate. And here’s a nice And-1 from Joseph Bertrand:

Iowa blasts Quincy, 100-54, in exhibition action

The Iowa men’s basketball team torched Quincy, 100-54, in exhibition action Sunday afternoon at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa scored the game’s first 22 points and held Quincy without a field goal for the first 10-plus minutes. It also notched 41 points off 31 turnovers. Four Hawkeyes scored in double figures, paced by freshman Mike Gesell’s 18 points. Josh Oglesby and Eric May each scored 15, and Melsahn Basabe added 10. [ Pressing, running, shooting 3s] Six Hawkeyes hit at least one 3-pointer, and they shot 44 percent from distance (11-of-25). Gesell and Oglesby each drained three triples, and May hit a

Dienhart: What I learned in Week 10

It was another interesting Saturday that saw Nebraska continue its hot streak in its quest to win the Legends Division. And even though Wisconsin didn’t play, it saw its competition in the Leaders Division heat up with Indiana’s win over Iowa. Here’s what I learned following another glorious day of football. 1. Nebraska looks like a team of destiny. The Cornhuskers have come back from a 17-point deficit to beat Wisconsin; a 12-point deficit at Northwestern; a 10-point deficit at Michigan State. The Cornhuskers are 7-2 overall and 4-1 in the Big Ten and in firm control of their destiny.
