One month until these guys are back. I can't wait.
- Purdue president Mitch Daniels supports the Big Ten alignment plan and says he thinks all other Big Ten presidents will, too.
- Illinois' caravan will be invading Northwestern country. And Northwestern is planning a, um, "warm" welcome for the Illini. A prediction that the Wildcats will win the Legends Division.
- Michigan State's Riley Bullough would like to know whether he should study running back or linebacker film this summer. The Spartans' No. 1 tailback job is still up for grabs. Dion Sims draws rave reviews for his blocking.
- Travis Frederick's decision to leave Wisconsin early was validated Thursday night. More on Dallas' decision to draft Frederick.
- Bo Pelini eyes his best season yet. An in-state prospect with blazing track times could be on Nebraska's radar. A former Husker is concerned with how the NFL treats its former players.
- Three players are battling to win the Penn State defensive end job opposite of Deion Barnes. Bill O'Brien didn't believe in Steven Bench, Neil Rudel says.
- Iowa regents approved upgrades to Kinnick Stadium's video and sound system. Mark Weisman is now a leader of the Hawkeyes' offense.
- Devin Gardner passes to Jeremy Gallon -- with his eyes closed. Another day, another 2014 recruit for Michigan -- this time a 6-foot-4 receiver. Wolverines linebacker Desmond Morgan has shed body fat in an effort to stay healthy.
- Gerry DiNardo was impressed with Minnesota practice.
- Zach Boren is trying to prove skeptics wrong when it comes to the NFL. Some Ohio State spring practice observations.
- Indiana's Adam Replogle is hoping to get the NFL call.
