People keep looking at the Big Ten and wondering, ‘Where’s the power?’ For some reason, people had anointed Ohio State prior to the Braxton Miller injury … And it’s almost like people have forgotten that Michigan State won the conference last year and returns a whole lot of great players — beat Ohio State head to head. They’re going on the road, carrying the banner for the Big Ten.

Spartans to host Buckeyes under the lights Nov. 8

If you enjoyed last season’s Big Ten title game - who didn’t?! - you’ll want to leave the night of Nov. 8 open. That’s because the Big Ten announced Thursday that Michigan State will host Ohio State under the lights (8 ET) for the first time in a rematch of last season’s memorable clash at Lucas Oil Stadium.

College Basketball AP Poll - Week 13
I can’t believe how far Michigan State dropped after losing to Michigan. ESPECIALLY because of who is above us. 
Florida hasn’t played anyone recently, I mean they are in the SEC for god sakes. 
Kansas has FOUR losses, two of them weren’t even ranked teams (Villanova and Colorado). 
Grrrr… I’m just bitter that MSU lost to Michigan, UGH! Good thing basketball isn’t like football, where every game matters. We still have the rest of the Big Ten season, the Big Ten Tournament, AND March Madness. 
As soon as Payne and Dawson are back… it’s GAME ON!

The two remaining undefeated Big Ten teams will face off tonight.
#3 Michigan State hosts #21 Michigan at the Breslin Center in East Lansing, MI at 7pm EST.
MSU’s Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson and UM’s Mitch McGary are  all out with injuries. This game is going to come down to these teams’ back courts in Gary Harris and Keith Appling vs. Nik Stauskas. 
With all of that being said…
GO GREEN! GO WHITE! BEAT MICHIGAN!

10 Lessons from B1G Bowl Season

Bowl season and the Big Ten: It’s a match made in…well, how to put this delicately…how about a match made in purgatory? 

Yes, that’s it—after all, fans of schools in the Big Ten annually get their hopes up, only to see their teams lose close game to good competition. 

The 2013-14 bowl season was no different, with the Big Ten going 2-5 in the postseason and leaving many fans wondering “what if” once again.

If there was a silver lining, at least both of the Big Ten’s wins came on New Year’s Day in games where Nebraska and Michigan State were underdogs. 

Meanwhile, we also are reminded about the debacles that were Michigan and Minnesota. 

This year was more of the same for Big Ten fans. That familiar empty feeling of coming close and yet being so far away is getting old. 

Bowl season provided plenty of lessons over the course of seven games, so let’s explore what we learned about the B1G from its bowl games.
