A couple of items for your reading enjoyment, unless you're an Ohio State fan:
Ohio State junior Doug Worthington, a projected starter at defensive tackle, faces a charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Worthington was arrested early Saturday after being pulled over for speeding.
Pass-happy spread offenses, or "sissy ball," as Purdue coach Joe Tiller puts it, has made the Big Ten as progressive as any other league, Jeff McLane writes in the Philadelphia Enquirer.
Wisconsin linebacker DeAndre Levy doesn't put a lot of stock in what he and his fellow seniors have accomplished so far, Jim Polzin writes in The Capital Times.
The lawyer for former Iowa football player Abe Satterfield is seeking phone records and prescription drug records for the alleged victim in the sexual assault case, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reports. He also wants the state to pay for the defense's pretrial interviews. Potential witnesses include Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz.
Michigan State is on the lookout for an emergency quarterback, Dave Dye writes in The Detroit News.
For you fashion buffs out there, here's a close look at Michigan's new unis, courtesy of the Detroit Free Press.
In case you missed it, the Friendly Confines were anything but to Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, who was booed before starting to sing during the seventh-inning stretch Saturday, Michael Rothstein writes in The Fort Wayne (Ind.) Journal Gazette. Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald followed Weis on Sunday and received a better reception. Fitzgerald's "Let's get some runs!" charge sparked the Cubs to four runs in the bottom of the seventh. The only problem: Fitzgerald is a die-hard White Sox fan.
