Like all quarterbacks, Michigan State’s Andrew Maxwell watches his share of game film. He’s taken in plenty on Iowa, this week’s opponent, and on Tuesday’s “#BTNLive,” host Dave Revsine asked him what he’s seen. Maxwell’s thoughts: “Iowa’s interesting to watch on film, because they don’t do many things, but what they do do they do very well.” The junior also showed a strong knowledge of Iowa’s defensive philosophy and recent lineage.
It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for BTN NFL draft expert Russ Lande to reveal his latest Big Ten Big Board. Lande did just that on “The Next Level,” and the top six guys stayed the same. There’s a new name making its season debut this week: Michigan State’s Dion Sims, at No. 9. Watch Lande break down his Big Board, with a spotlight on Wisconsin’s Montee Ball, now and catch our interview with Ball in this post.
Michigan’s Holly Hein tore her ACL in 2010, then in 2011 just as she was about to return to the soccer field, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and missed the season, but has undergone successful treatment and returned to the field this fall.
Is anyone gonna catch Braxton Miller as the Big Ten’s top Heisman contender? It may be difficult. The Ohio State quarterback has a great chance to enhance his Heisman dossier playing this Saturday at Indiana, which has the worst rushing defense in the Big Ten (196.8 ypg).
