Big Ten’s lunch links

Make up your mind, Mother Nature. Connor Cook now has the freedom to audible at the line of scrimmage for Michigan State, another sign of confidence in the quarterback heading into his second season as the starter.

If the problem for Michigan last season was a lack of chemistry, Brady Hoke has a feeling that won’t be a problem this fall he leaves spring.

Penn State showed off a Wildcat package in its spring game, but James Franklin won’t reveal how much he’ll use it — or whether it’s got a unique nickname.

Iowa offensive line coach Brian Ferentz isn’t usually one for hyperbole, so he means it when he calls Brandon Scherff the best player at his position in the country.

The Ohio State defense is leaving spring practice with a much better feeling than it did when it left the field after the Discover Orange Bowl.

After a long, difficult road, Rutgers offensive lineman Bryan Leoni is pushing for a starting role and a happy ending for his journey.

The Purdue offense has undergone a transformation this spring, and the roster has also added some talent to run the system.

The union seeking to represent Northwestern football players offered its response to the school’s appeal, calling the university’s case a “castle built on sand.”

No matter how big the league gets, the Big Ten is keeping its name.

The rebrand of Illinois athletics appears to be a hit, writes Loren Tate.
