Big Ten Geeks: Gophers Bounce Back

After the injury to Trevor Mbakwe, I fully expected this to be somewhat of a “what if?” season for the Gophers. And that certainly appeared to be the case through four conference games, as Minnesota stumbled to a 0-4 start in the Big Ten. But Tubby Smith’s team has responded by winning three straight games, most recently in a stomping of Northwestern at The Barn. And although Minnesota had dropped some close games over its losing streak, the turnaround isn’t simply a matter of fortunate ball bounces:    Minnesota Points Per Possession       Opponents’ Points Per Possession    1st

Paterno: 400th career victory

Dienhart: Badgers top Illini, continue turnaround

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — January is about to melt into February. Winter has set in, but spring isn’t that far out of sight. And neither is the NCAA tourney. Wisconsin knows that. So does Illinois. That’s what made today’s game so huge, as a topsy-turvy Big Ten races was about to take another step toward perhaps making some sense. Or, maybe not. Who’s the best team? Ohio State? Michigan State? On this day, Wisconsin made a statement that perhaps it should be included in the discussion following an impressive 67-63 win over the Illini. This is a Badger team many doubted

Did You See This? Minnesota's Williams

Minnesota’s Rodney Williams loves to show off his athleticism, and for good reason. The junior can jump out of the gym and is blessed with some of the best God-given abilities in the Big Ten. During Sunday afternoon’s game against Northwestern at The Barn, Williams displayed those skills on a few occasions, including a quick, powerful slam and an acrobatic and-one. Watch the latter now and the former in this post.

Dienhart: Marking The Passing of a Legend

Penn State, college football and the nation have lost an icon with the passing of Joe Paterno, who succumbed to a short battle with lung cancer. For almost the last 50 years, Paterno, 85, became the face of Penn State, if not the college football world. Prowling the sideline of Beaver Stadium in his pant legs rolled up exposing his white socks and sporting his famously thick, black glasses, Paterno would become the all-time winningest coach in major college history. But Paterno meant so much more to the Penn State family. He wasn’t Coach, he was Paterno, he wasn’t Joe
