I had to get these links done early so I could hit up a lunch buffet with Betty Draper.
- Super Bowl champ Dave Diehl came back to Illinois to help out the Illini and his buddy Luke Butkus.
- New Indiana defensive ends coach Jon Fabris has some really high standards (subscription required).
- Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg is adjusting to a new offense and a different style from offensive coordinator Greg Davis.
- Michigan's Craig Roh is finding his niche on the defensive line after yet another move.
- Le'Veon Bell must avoid complacency if he wants to remain Michigan State's No. 1 back. William Gholston has a chance to be unstoppable if he puts it all together.
- Minnesota cornerback Michael Carter is finally moving in the right direction after a sub-par first few years.
- Nebraska offensive lineman Seung Hoon Choi is trying to add a fitting final chapter to his interesting football journey. The Huskers are looking to Chicago for future quarterbacks.
- Northwestern's Tony Jones has overcome injuries to give the team's receiving corps a boost.
- Braxton Miller is taking on more of a leadership role for Ohio State. The Buckeyes picked up a running back for the '13 class.
- Penn State has a policy for renaming stadiums and roads after people. Derek Day has gone from walk-on to backup running back for the Nittany Lions this spring.
- Purdue's defense enjoyed some steaks thanks in large part to Ricardo Allen.
- Coming back from injury, Wisconsin receiver Marquis Mason hopes to make an impact this year. The youngest of the Watt brothers committed to the Badgers over the weekend.
- Athlon ranks the Big Ten coaches from 1 through 12.
