I have the toes I have. Let's just leave it at that.
- Seung Hoon Choi grew up in Seoul and didn't move to the U.S. until he was 14. Now, he's a starting offensive lineman for Nebraska. The Huskers get one defensive star back but likely will be missing another versus Wyoming.
- Ohio State hopes Braxton Miller gives the offense a spark. The linemen will have to come through for a freshman quarterback. Miller's a different player, but he's now got a similar story to Terrelle Pryor.
- Two quarterbacks are not better than one for Penn State. Undersized and mostly unwanted out of high school, Drew Astorino has developed into a leader for the Nittany Lions.
- Paul Petrino and Vic Koenning have given Illinois a major boost as coordinators. The Illini are trying to use their big wins for momentum on the recruiting trail.
- Denard Robinson knows he needs to improve his footwork in the passing game. Michigan players say this 3-0 start is different from the recent past.
- Michigan State's secondary is aiming to finish off plays. The Spartans won't take Central Michigan lightly.
- D'Angelo Roberts has been a hit so far for Indiana (subscription required).
- Donnell Kirkwood has emerged as a playmaker on Minnesota's offense.
- Wisconsin tight end Sam Arneson has proved too good to redshirt. Chris Borland is having fun rushing the passer and got some looks at defensive end last week against Northern Illinois.
