Have a great weekend, everybody, and enjoy all the spring games. Looks like some nice weather out there.
- Joel Stave jumped into rehab on his injured throwing shoulder.

- Pat Fitzgerald is not the problem in the Northwestern union issue, Seth Gruen writes.
- Patience and hard work appear to have paid off for Zach Sterup, who's in line to start at right tackle for Nebraska.
- Minnesota's Peter Mortell is a seriously good punter with a great sense of humor.
- Michigan State receivers coach Terrence Samuel is making Aaron Burbridge's improvement a priority.
- Brady Hoke says the competition at quarterback isn't over for Michigan because Devin Gardner needs to be more consistent.
- An Iowa administrative assistant is helping the Hawkeyes get creative in recruiting.
