Meyer: There's room for Buckeyes to improve

Ohio State’s Urban Meyer joined the crew of BTN’s “Football Report” to talk about his 2-0 Buckeyes. Watch the interview here. In our Associated Press game preview, Meyer likes what he’s seen so far from Braxton Miller, but the first-year Ohio State coach wants his quarterback to concentrate more on the passing game. For Miller to do that, the rest of the Buckeyes must cut down on sloppy play. Read the full preview here.

Week 3 games are almost here and I take one last weekday spin around today’s headlines in this post. What do people think about Nebraska’s defense? Why does Minnesota have to watch out? And how can Fitz Toussaint regain his form? Also, if you’re interested, my game previews are over here. Defensive question: Bo Pelini has faced issues as Nebraska coach since arriving in 2008. But when it has come to defensive problems, the fan base has always trusted Pelini to be able to fix the issues. Now? After that 653-yard debacle at UCLA? Fans’ trust in Pelini’s defensive acumen

Debate it: Team with most sense of urgency

Week 2 was a rough one. Not only did the Big Ten lose six non-conference games for the first time since 2000, it went 1-6 against BCS teams. Of the half-dozen teams that lost, which enters Week 3 with the most sense of urgency? senior writer Tom Dienhart and web editor Brent Yarina debate that topic in this post. Brent: It’s got to be Wisconsin, right? I mean, this was supposed to be the team that would have a cakewalk to its second consecutive Big Ten title game. And two games in, the usually prolific offense looks lost

Big Ten Trends: How many points will Michigan score?

Two weeks into the 2012 college football season, we are starting to see some trends take place in the Big Ten. For example, Penn State’s Allen Robinson is the most target receiver and Michigan State’s defense is very tough to score upon. These could change throughout the course of the season, of course, but I single out a trend for every Big Ten team and offer a guess as to what will happen Saturday. Also, don’t forget to cast your votes! ILLINOIS Question: How many snaps will Nathan Scheelhaase play? Analysis: The Illini quarterback is coming off an ankle injury

Weekly preview: Tune-ups lead to Big Ten games

The Big Ten men’s soccer season is right around the corner, but the teams have one last weekend of non-conference games to shape their squad and prepare for the grind that has come to characterize Big Ten soccer. This upcoming weekend, the seven schools that represent the conference have matches that may not count toward the Big Ten standings (see standings at, but they will be important come NCAA tournament time. While the season is young, a win against a quality opponent on the road or a crushing defeat at home could be the game to swing a team’s

Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Field

Rounding up reaction to Notre Dame move

With news that Notre Dame is joining the ACC for all sports but football and leagues signing fresh blockbuster TV deals seemingly on a weekly basis, Nebraska fans may wonder: Was joining the Big Ten a smart move? Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald is here to tell you that, yes, the Cornhuskers made a prudent decision. Speaking of Notre Dame, Rob Oller of the Columbus Dispatch says the Fighting Irish’s decision to join the ACC for all sports but football shouldn’t be a shock. The Irish are a national brand that will continue to get good exposure in the
