Illinois' Michael Finke and Cameron Liss, Michigan State's Matt Van Dyk, Nebraska's Tanner Borchardt and Michael Jacobson, Purdue's Dakota Mathias and P.J. Thompson and Wisconsin's Matt Ferris and Aaron Moesch were named to the Honors Court, which recognizes student-athletes who excelled in academics during the past season.
Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio is an honest guy, and you can expect nothing less from him at Big Ten Media Days this coming Monday and Tuesday in Chicago. While he admitted that the games have been controversial, he pushed for their continued use.
"I don't think there's a gap at all".
Just recently, we posted our MI conference media day preview - so be sure to read that one.
The Big Ten Network will triple its prime-time national TV exposure during football season and add more basketball games in the time slot, thanks to new deals with broadcast partners FOX, ABC/ESPN and CBS.
By placing four teams in the New Year's Six bowl games, the Big Ten made a strong case to jump past the SEC as college football's top conference.
But not everyone is on board with Delany's plan.
His Buckeyes also directly eroded the SEC's veneer when the Buckeyes bludgeoned Alabama into submission with running back Ezekiel Elliott in the first College Football Playoff.

The advocate also divulged that the SIT has been ordered by the Court not to take Charmee's blood samples without her consent. She mentioned that she is not comfortable with the way the investigation is being done.
Indiana's Tom Allen coached high school football for about a decade-and-a-half. The channel did take a blow on another front with the revelation that the conference will let its schools schedule FCS opponents again (under certain circumstances), creating some low-value games that will likely wind up on the conference network, but it also got a boost from these streaming bundle announcements. Some of the opposition to the Friday games site this as a reason to go back to a Saturday-only schedule.
In one other bit of news, Delany confirmed an adjustment to the league's scheduling philosophy that emerged last week in an interview with North Dakota State athletic director Matt Larsen. I think you'll see selections probably in October of the preceding the season, number one.
"Now after watching things play out over the last three years, we noted that we were the only conference to go totally in that direction", Delaney said. In total, 221 programs were recognized with the 2016-17 ABCA Team Academic Excellence Award, including 70 high school programs and 60 teams from NCAA Division III.
"I do think the Labor Day (game) is a good one", Chryst said. For what it's worth, most projections have Rutgers struggling to win three or four games this year. "I mean, it should be one of the top schools in our conference". And the passing game had limitations, as big plays down field were too few and far between.
"I don't know what the expectations were, except try not to embarrass yourself anymore", Wannstedt said.
"To me, you can't say enough about the job Bill O'Brien did in a very, very hard circumstance", Ferentz said. Six times the defense allowed 30-or-more points in a game.
"He's had a lot of input in our offense", said Meyer. "You hope to learn from all your experiences. but you never take one game from previous year".
