The announcement of the inductees into the College Football Hall of Fame is usually one of the most controversial events of the spring simply because there are a boatload of great players and only so many spots to be had.
Nobody has celebrated a division championship in college football quite like this.
Ohio State won the Leaders Division in the Big Ten last year with a 12-0 record, but as we all know, they couldn’t play for the conference title or a bowl game because of NCAA sanctions.
Ohio State is inviting fans to come out and join the team on the field again on Saturday. Meyer even says a surprise field goal kicker will come from the student body.
The Big Ten’s bowl lineup will change in 2014, and the changes likely won’t be limited to games and dates. The entire bowl business could soon have a dramatically different look. Several conference commissioners, including the Big Ten’s Jim Delany, publicly discussed the need to change the bowl business model earlier this month during the week of the national title game. Declining bowl attendance is a concern, as are issues such as ticket distribution and the selection of teams.

Michigan’s victory at Minnesota clarifies where both stand in Big Ten pecking order (The Dagger: College Basketball Blog)
If back-to-back games against Big Ten favorites Indiana and Michigan were a mid-January barometer for whether Minnesota can win the league title, then Gophers fans aren’t going to like the answer.
Click, clack. Judging from his first two recruiting classes, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer could certainly be cast in the next Under Armour commercial. With three weeks left before signing day, a look at the numbers shows the two-time national champion does indeed protect his house.
