  4. Could B1G's draft drought end in 2015?

    Adam Rittenberg

    Go ahead and blame the Big Ten blog. Since it launched in July 2008, the Big Ten hasn't had an NFL draft pick in the top 10. The Big Ten also hasn't had a team appear in the national championship game. So yes, it's all my/our fault. Here's the ...

  9. Big Ten pick rewind: Championship game

    Adam Rittenberg

    Brian won the regular-season predictions contest and made me a poorer man Friday night at Harry and Izzy's in Indianapolis (at least he ordered pork chops, not steak). But when it came to the title game forecast, just call me Nostra-Rittenberg, as I ...

    Think Nebraska felt good after the Hail Mary against Northwestern? Brian Bennett felt even better. He might have earned a St. Elmo dinner from me on that one play. Bennett's Nebraska selection gives him a one-game lead in the season standings. My ...

    Adam Rittenberg
