Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg Rather than bogging down the daily lunch links with stories about the weekend scrimmages around the league, I'm giving you the scrimmage recaps first. Not every team scrimmaged, and not every team had media present, but here are a few links to get you caught up.  You can thank me later.  OHIO STATE Terrelle Pryor had a decent performance in Saturday's scrimmage, completing 17 of 27 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown. Other standouts included wideout DeVier Posey and running back Dan "Boom" Herron, though the shuffling at left tackle continued.  Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel is pleased with his run game so far.  WISCONSIN The quarterbacks struggled in Saturday's 100-play scrimmage, but the running backs, led by junior Zach Brown, looked impressive.  MINNESOTA More than 15,000 fans attended Saturday's scrimmage in TCF Bank Stadium, and the Gophers' offense showed some promising signs at both running back and wide receiver. Still, much will depend on the offensive line's ability to adjust to a new system.   Quarterback Adam Weber had a mixed performance, with two touchdown passes and three interceptions. INDIANA The Hoosiers' coaches seem closer to announcing their depth chart for the opener, which means we'll soon learn who starts at running back. Redshirt freshman tailback Darius Willis had some nice moments in Saturday's 120-play scrimmage.   NORTHWESTERN Backup quarterback Dan Persa stood out in Northwestern's scrimmage.
