Dienhart: Analyzing Indiana's 2012 Schedule

I continue to take a closer look at each Big Ten football team’s schedule, and this time I’m diving into Indiana’s 2012 campaign, the second one under Kevin Wilson. Previously, I wrote about Illinois, and as we roll these out you can find them in my Big Ten Football Schedule Analysis series. Toughest non-conference game? Toughest Big Ten game? Upset alerts? I touch on these and other categories because it’s never too early to talk about next fall. Feel free to leave me your own take on these schedules in the comments section, or come tell me on Twitter and

Hoosiers Won't Play Kentucky in 2012-13

Indiana just sent out news that the school will not sign a new contract to play Kentucky in men’s basketball next season since Kentucky insists the matchup be moved to off-campus sites. According to the release: “The latest two-game, home and home contract between the schools expired following the Wildcats visit in December to Bloomington. Subsequently, Kentucky has conditioned the continuation of the series on moving the games to Louisville and/or Indianapolis.”’s Basketball Nation Blog looked at this issue in a solid post earlier this week. But this gives us a really good excuse to post the video of

Dienhart: Analyzing Illinois' 2012 schedule

In the coming weeks, I will take a close look at each Big Ten football team’s schedule, offering insight and analysis on what is ahead for each school. Up first: Illinois. The Illini, of course, enter the first year of the Tim Beckman regime. A season ago, Illinois started 6-0 and entertained early dreams of playing in the Rose Bowl. Six games later, the Illini were 6-6. It was a rough finish–so rough it cost Ron Zook his job. See my Illinois schedule analysis in this post. Toughest non-conference game: Sept. 8, at Arizona State. The Sun Devils are a

Michigan's Mike Martin

All-access with Mike Martin on draft night

One draft expert, ESPN’s Todd McShay, fell in love with Mike Martin before the 2012 NFL Draft. Apparently, the Tennessee Titans were fond of him, too. Tennessee selected the former Michigan defensive tackle in the third round of last week’s draft. Martin’s YouTube account, GoMikeMartin, chronicled the defensive tackle’s draft party, and it includes its share of raw emotion. Watch the video now and see more all-access draft videos in this post. That’s some great stuff. If Martin doesn’t make it as a football player, it looks like he has a future in public speaking. The guy gave a few

Dienhart: Q&A With Minnesota's Jerry Kill

No matter where Minnesota’s Jerry Kill has coached, there has been one constant: winning. His eclectic head coaching resume includes Saginaw Valley State (1994-98); Emporia State (1999-2000); Southern Illinois (2001-07); Northern Illinois (2008-2010), and Kill has won at each and every stop. Now, Minnesota is his latest project. And, given his history, the 50-year-old Kill figures to make the Gophers a winner. I caught up with Kill to get his thoughts on the Minnesota program as it heads into the offseason. Kill debuted with a 3-9 mark last season, but Minnesota finished on an up note with a 27-7 win
