Big Ten lunch links
By Adam Rittenberg
A lunch links shout-out to my local Division III team, North Park, which is 3-0 for the first time since 2005. Kudos to coach Scott Pethel and the Vikings!
Coaches Bo Pelini and Bret Bielema take
different approaches to the Nebraska-Wisconsin hoopla
. Heisman Trophy candidates Russell Wilson and Taylor Martinez
share the stage Saturday
The Sea of Red is
coming to Madison
. Huskers defensive backs
Corey Cooper and Daimion Stafford move up
the depth chart. Barry Alvarez
built Wisconsin's program in Nebraska's image
, Lee Barfknecht writes.
Big Ten coaches
rally behind their colleague Jerry Kill
, Marcus Fuller writes in the (St. Paul) Pioneer Press. Kill should
heal himself before fixing his team
, Chip Scoggins writes in the Star Tribune.
Indiana assistant Mike Ekeler calls
the team's latest defensive effort "an embarrassment."
Big Ten play should
provide a clearer picture of Ohio State
. Not surprisingly Braxton Miller is
listed as the Buckeyes' clear-cut starter at quarterback
Jeff Allen won't face further penalties
after being ejected from last Saturday's game.
Don't read too much into
Michigan State's sparkling defensive stats
. Although Mark Dantonio put a
gag order on his players
this week, the
Ohio natives on the roster can't wait
to play in Columbus.
Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa returns this week, but
how much will he play?
Penn State's secondary
will soon be put to the test.
After narrowly beating UMass last year,
Michigan is giving the Minutemen another shot
. Denard Robinson isn't the only problem with
Michigan's passing game
