Big Ten lunch links

2/20/2014

The links would like to be back in Indianapolis, but they're never going pro.

  • After picking up some new hardware, Braxton Miller talks about his decision to return to Ohio State for one more season.

  • Is there really a quarterback competition on tap for Michigan this spring? Opinions are somewhat divided ahead of the start of camp for the Wolverines.

  • Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard is fighting to be the first cornerback taken in the draft, and a strong showing at the NFL combine could put him in that position.

  • Reserve guard Tanner Hartman is leaving Penn State, dropping James Franklin's roster down to 78 scholarship players. The Nittany Lions eventually need to get down to 75 by August.

  • Bo Pelini has a new administrator to report to as Nebraska made a personnel change in the football operations department.

  • At the top of the list of questions for Indiana's offense: Who is the top quarterback heading into spring practice?

  • The Northwestern hearings continued on Wednesday as the debate focused on whether or not players could be considered employees.

  • With a presence in nearly half of the nation's top 15 media markets, Pat Caputo calls the Big Ten a "demographics dream."

  • There's no question about Melvin Gordon's talent, but the next step is proving the Wisconsin running back can flourish in a featured role.

  • Quarterback transfers appear to be on the rise, and players are both coming and going in the Big Ten.
