    Brian Bennett

    Just a little more than 24 hours now before the first Big Ten team kicks off the season. We've waited so long for football to return that we'll even eagerly gobble up games against FCS opponents this weekend. There's so much to look forward to, in...

    Brian Bennett

    After two weeks of our Big Ten fantasy league, The One Who Knocks and The Trombone Shorties are all tied up. Adam's Shorties got revenge for my Week 1 win with a decisive 177-142 decision in Week 2. Michigan's Jeremy Gallon put up 37 points for hi...

  7. Tracking our B1G fantasy teams: Week 2

    Brian Bennett

    Adam likes to crow about his narrow victory in our Big Ten fantasy league last season, but order was restored in Week 1 of 2013. My team, The One Who Knocks, wiped the floor with Adam's Trombone Shorties by a score of 139-93. I had a balanced atta...

  10. 2012 Big Ten regular-season wrap

    Brian Bennett

    The Big Ten's 2012 regular season can be summed up by the following facts: The league's best team, Ohio State, went 12-0 but won't play in a bowl because of probation. The league's best nonconference win came in Week 1 when Iowa beat BCS-bound ...

  11. Badgers seek return to explosive ways

    Brian Bennett

    Something was a little off with the Wisconsin offense in Week 1. The Badgers beat Northern Iowa 27-21 in a game much closer than anyone expected. Mostly because few people expected the Badgers to score "only" 27 points. Sure, last season's team...

    Brian Bennett

    There's an old cliche that goes like this: You can't win the Heisman Trophy in Week 1, but you can lose it. That may or may not be true. But it sure seems to apply to Michigan's Denard Robinson. A big game against Alabama could have propelled the ...

    Brian Bennett

    Experts from around the country have weighed in on their Week 1 picks, and there seems to be one clear consensus: Alabama will beat Michigan. Look here, here, here, here, here or, ahem, here. It doesn't appear that anybody, outside of Bob Asmussen...
