Volleyball Report: Our expert passes out awards

We’ve reached the mid-way point of the Big Ten season and very little has been settled in the conference. But that’s about to change in the next week as one of the most critical matches of the year is on the docket, potentially putting an end to the Big Ten Title race by Sunday afternoon. It was a streak-busting week for the Indiana Hoosiers as they overcame an 0-8 start to conference play to earn two impressive victories to close out the first half of the Big Ten season. The Hoosiers pulled out a 3-1 victory over rival Purdue in

Beaver Stadium

Big Ten Links: Here comes the noise

What’s the loudest stadium in the Big Ten? Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says it’s Penn State’s Beaver Stadium, and I have to agree. Each time I have been there it was deafening. And when the Buckeyes play there this Saturday, they will be greeted with a wall of sound. And Ohio State better buckle up from the opening salvo, as Penn State has been a great first quarter team. Read more of Wednesday’s Big Ten Links in this post. The Nittany Lions have outscored foes, 66-0, in the first quarter this season. Out of a maximum of 105 first-quarter

Montee Ball

Forget Mon-TAY, it's Mon-TEE Ball again

We met him as Mon-TEE Ball. He corrected us this summer and said it’s Mon-TAY. Now, he’s back to Mon-TEE, the pronunciation we used last year when he tied the single-season FBS record for touchdowns (39) and was a Heisman finalist. To be clear, the whole thing is more superstition than anything. After a slow start, Ball is running like the Mon-TEE of old. So coaches and players joke they don’t want to see Mon-TAY again. Ball is just playing along. Here’s what Ball told Fox Sports Wisconsin on the pronunciation of his name: “The coaches have been calling me

The video is called “Then and Now,” and as the fans who saw it tip off Saturday’s “Hoosier Hysteria” can attest, it blends Indiana’s rich history with the current roster, in photos and video. Cody Zeller and Will Sheehey on the bench as Bob Knight tosses the chair? Check. Damon Bailey passing to Victor Oladipo? Check.

There’s a big name making its debut on BTN NFL draft expert Russ Lande’s latest Big Ten Big Board, released Tuesday night on “The Next Level.” That’s right, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson enters the list for the first time this season. The reasoning? His ability to make plays with the ball in his hands, of course. Watch Lande break down Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland’s pro prospects and release his latest Big Board in this video. Speaking of Borland, any and every mention must include this highlight-reel tackle: Russ Lande’s Big Board (10/23/12) 1. Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State 2. William
