Four for you, Glen Coco. You go, Glen Coco.
- During the Ohio State bye last weekend a lot of the players went home. And what did they do? They ate. A lot.
- Wisconsin is coming into its own under Gary Andersen and the learning curve is getting more manageable, too.
- Behind the scenes video footage from the locker room celebration after Penn State beat Michigan in four overtimes on Saturday.
- Michigan is struggling to find its identity -- maybe that's because they're not utilizing their personnel like they should be, writes Drew Sharp.
- Nebraska's defense is nowhere near where Bo Pelini wants it to be, but it has done a good job tightening the areas that need to be tightened.
- Michigan State averages 78.8 penalty yards per game and Mark Dantonio is not happy about it.
- Northwestern coaches thought their team needed to lighten up after the Wildcats' big loss, so the coaches attacked the players with water balloons during Monday's team meeting.
- With just three wins between the Hoosiers and bowl eligibility (for the first time since 2007), IU knows it needs to find some kind of consistency.
- Purdue is playing a lot of young players, but coach Darrell Hazell insists that they're still focused on this season and not playing for the future.
- The average Wisconsin O-lineman is 20-50 pounds heavier than the average Illinois D-lineman, but the Illini are trying not to focus on that.
