Big Ten lunch links

How long is too long to wait for free pizza? Michigan’s new offensive coordinator might be “insane” according to Devin Gardner, but Doug Nussmeier’s might be just what the program needs.

Michigan State backup quarterback Tyler O’Connor has no plans to transfer, even with Connor Cook ahead of him on the depth chart.

Penn State moved a pair of defensive tackles to the offensive line, a sign of confidence in the players already on hand in the defensive trenches.

The Ohio State offensive line has a bunch of new faces, but the guy leading the unit remains the same. Ed Warinner’s presence continues to give the Buckeyes confidence they can reload up front.

After a year away from football, Maryland receiver Marcus Leak has returned humbled, more mature and looking to make an impact.

Brandon Scherff has always been known for his ability to look ahead, and that trait is a big part of the reason the star left tackle elected to stay at Iowa for another season.

The tackles at Purdue are under intense scrutiny this spring, but the program has been pleasantly surprised with the play of sophomore J.J. Prince so far.

Vincent Valentine had his body right ahead of spring practice, but the Nebraska defensive tackle realized quickly he needed to make some technical improvements to have a big sophomore season.

Tanner McEvoy has played well elsewhere, but the Wisconsin junior made clear he’d prefer to stick around at quarterback.
