- Big Ten Network's Tom Dienhart ranks all the schools on recruiting appeal, placing Ohio State at the top and Indiana at the bottom.
- The ongoing saga surrounding ESPN 300 DT Malik McDowell is just part of Michigan State's "rise to respectability."

- Penn State's coaching staff will finally take a few days off to move into State College and stop living out of suitcases.
- Ohio State assistant Tom Herman chronicled last week's 19-hour traffic jam in detail and said it turned "pretty scary."
- Kirk Ferentz expects competition at every position this offseason -- and that includes quarterback.
- Shane Morris will compete for Michigan's starting quarterback job, and he talked about his progression since first arriving on campus.
- Illinois' Tim Beckman took a subtle shot at Northwestern while discussing how he signed more Chicago players "than the actual team in Chicago signed."
