Dienhart: NU's Fitzgerald Floats Title Idea

Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald is a smart man who calls himself the “youngest ‘old school’ coach” in the nation. But he had one of the most radical ideas today to deal with the perceived competitive imbalance between the Legends and Leaders Divisions. With two Leaders teams (Ohio State and Penn State) not eligible for the postseason or Big Ten crown, Fitzgerald proposed having the Legends Division champ meet a team selected from among the other nine schools in the conference championship game. Actually, it’s not a bad idea. What do you think? Tell me below. BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart is

Dienhart: Coaches Discuss Penn State Situation

Most coaches were asked about recruiting Penn State players after a recent report  that Illinois had assistant coaches at Penn State, presumably to recruit Nittany Lions who are eligible to transfer to any school and play immediately. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer isn’t doing it. Neither is Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema. But other Big Ten coaches are recruiting Nittany Lions—or wouldn’t be opposed to it. “I’m not casting doubt on anybody or questioning anything, but we made a decision that we would not actively pursue any Penn State players,” said Bielema. Purdue’s Danny Hope was asked the same question. “NCAA has

Dienhart: Leaders Division Takes A Hit

The Leaders Division has a unique situation in that just four of the six teams will be eligible for the conference title with Ohio State and Penn State ineligible due to NCAA probation. Does that mean things will be easier for Wisconsin in its run to defend it division crown? “I’m not blind and oblivious to the fact that now we’re in a division that has six teams,” said Badgers boss Bret Bielema. “Only four of them are eligible for the Big Ten championship game. But it really won’t change our approach. But everybody’s like: Coach, why do you have

Dienhart: Bielema Embraces Rivalry

It can be argued that Wisconsin and Michigan State have become the top programs in the Big Ten. The teams met in the inaugural Big Ten championship game and have won a combined 44 games the last two seasons. No Big Ten schools can match that. Wisconsin has advanced to the last two Rose Bowls, while Michigan State has won 11 games each of the past two seasons and claimed a share of the 2010 title. So, is this a burgeoning rivalry? “I think our players just have so much respect for the Michigan State players and the way they
