Big Ten lunchtime links: Michigan-MSU rivalry heats up

Posted by's Adam Rittenberg

While I listen to Big Ten coaches yak about their teams, you should check out what's happening around the league. 

"They talk about these linebackers from USC and Ohio State,'' former Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington said Monday. ''Let's be realistic here. Ohio State got whupped by USC, which shows how inferior they are. Oregon State whupped on USC and showed how inferior USC's linebackers are. And you know what? Penn State whupped on Oregon State, and they're going to whup on Ohio State."

Someone told Bielema about comments complaining about the zipped-up windbreaker he wears for every game.

"I thought back to my freshman [first] year [at UW] when I was told by the merchandising people [that] they couldn't keep enough windbreakers in stock," Bielema said. "It goes to show, when you're winning, everybody agrees with what you're doing. When you're losing, everybody's got all the answers, because the right answer isn't out there. So, I appreciate that and thank God we have fans that care."
