In honor of "College Football Playoff," I'm calling this intro line "Lunchtime Links Intro Line."
- Two Iowa defensive backs left the team. Kirk Ferentz says the proposed Big Ten realignment "makes perfect sense." Iowa approved a conflict-of-interest plan regarding Ferentz's future son-in-law.
- Michigan added another blue-chip 2014 recruit in tight end Ian Bunting. Patrick Omameh is hoping his athleticism earns him a spot in the NFL draft. The Wolverines are instituting a general-admission seating policy for students.
- Nebraska players likely will be waiting a while during the NFL draft. Rex Burkhead could be a bargain for some team.
- Recruit Enoch Smith Jr. talks about choosing Michigan State. Shilique Calhoun and Lawrence Thomas look like the next stars on the Spartans' defensive line. A big NFL draft could be a bad sign for Michigan State.
- Previewing the offense for Minnesota's spring game. Former Gopher Eric Decker is getting his own reality TV series.
- Johnathan Hankins' NFL stock might have dropped, but his confidence is still high. Reid Fragel has become an intriguing NFL prospect.
- Penn State picked up highly rated wide receiver Chris Godwin on the recruiting trail. Eugene Lewis looks ready to become a playmaker for the Nittany Lions. Michael Mauti looks to overcome one more obstacle.
- Illinois could shine much more in this week's NFL draft than it did on the field last year.
- Pat Fitzgerald says Northwestern is "ready to take the next step."
- The "real" offseason now begins for Wisconsin. Travis Frederick is excited for the draft.
- Evaluating Purdue after the Boilers wrapped up their spring practice.
- The new division alignment has some positives for Indiana but doesn't do much for competitive balance, Andy Graham writes (subscription required).
