An offseason after finishing 12-2 (6-2 in conference), The Golden Eagles lost their Head Coach to North Carolina and more than half of their starters (only return 10). Despite the loss of talent, most notably the school record breaking Quarterback (Austin Davis), they will return a great core of veterans and young talent on both sides of the ball. Will [...]
Purdue’s 7-6 record in 2011 was the best of Danny Hope’s three-year run as Head Coach. The season ended with a victory over Western Michigan in the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl.

By now, everyone is aware of the Jerry Sandusky scandal that led to the dismissal of Head Coach Joe Paterno and potentially crippling NCAA punishments leveled against Penn State University. Now is not the time to recap or discuss that particular sequence of events. New Head Coach Bill O’Brien has taken over in Happy Valley and inherited a team whose [...]
Illinois fans endured seven seasons under Head Coach Ron Zook, which resulted in strong recruiting classes but a disappointing 35-51 record. Zook coached his final game before the Illini’s victory over UCLA in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (yes, that’s a thing), so he had only one bowl victory to his name during his tenure. Stepping in this season is [...]

Last season Michigan State earned a spot in the inaugural Big 10 Championship game against Wisconsin.
