  7. Big Ten bowl projections: Week 5

    How far will Michigan fall? We'll find out during the next two months, but for now, the Wolverines have fallen out of the bowl projections. Brady Hoke's team sits at 2-3, and the offense has shown no signs of a turnaround. It's hard to envision Mi...

    Adam Rittenberg

    The 7-11. That is what Dennis Franchione's wife, Kim, calls the football office because of time coaches arrive and depart. But when Franchione had two young Kansans on his staff at NAIA Pittsburg State in the late 1980s, the office might as well h...

  13. Big Ten bowl projections: Week 2

    Adam Rittenberg

    The Big Ten reporting crew thought about scrapping this entirely after a week in which few teams in this conference looked worthy of a postseason trip. An uninspiring day of MAC-tion and near misses slipped into a night of three double-digit losses i...
