To state that Big Ten football has seen better days would be an understatement.

In fact, that understatement is probably understated.

But with every dark cloud that looms there is a silver lining, and the Big Ten announced it players of the week for Week 2 in an official release on Monday. #B1G #ncaafootball

Since Maryland alum Kevin Plank founded Under Armour sports clothing in 1996, the Terrapins football team has been the subject of many uniform experiments. Well, #Maryland might have outdone itself this time around as the Terrapins will don uniforms Saturday in their match-up with West Virginia honoring the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner. #B1G #Terrapins

The #BigTen didn't disappoint in the opening week of college football going 12-2 overall highlighted by some spectacular individual performances. In an official release from the conference Monday morning, the Big Ten announced its players of the week.

#OhioState star quarterback Braxton Miller has a trophy case full of hardware from his first three seasons as the #Buckeyes signal caller but he has yet to complete a full season healthy. With major losses on the offensive line, inexperience in the backfield, and a shallow depth chart at quarterback, it is more important than ever Miller stays healthy in 2014 for Ohio State to remain competitive in the #BigTen .
As Braxton Miller goes, so goes Ohio State. So it was no surprise when the senior quarterback was the focal point of attention when the Big Ten Conference kicked off its annual Media Days event in Chicago on Monday...

Do you think college athletes should get paid? The #BigTen doesn't think so, but how strong is the conference's argument against pay-for-play? Here is my look at the Big Ten's stance issued in an official release this week.
The Big Ten firmly took a stance against pay-for-play this week but still didn't answer the question: Why aren't college athletes paid?

While the hangover still lingers for #OhioState after the loss to #VirginiaTech Saturday night in Ohio Stadium, the Hokies are clearing space on the trophy shelf. On Monday, the Football Writers Association of America named No. 17 Virginia Tech the National Team of the Week following the 35-21 win over the Buckeyes and several Hokies players took home #ACC honors for their performance in Week 2, including one national award. #B1G  
Virginia Tech's Dadi Nicolas (90) earned ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors on Monday, but he isn't the only Hokie to bring home the hardware after the 35-21 win over Ohio State on Saturday

The #BigTen was 12-2 overall as a conference last week but Week 2 could be a tougher test. Michigan at Notre Dame, Michigan State at Oregon, and Ohio State hosting Virginia Tech are just a few of the marquee match-ups we highlight this week in the 'Big Ten Buffet' at Football.com.
College football coaches like to proclaim that the most improvement that teams experience during a season is from Week One to Week Two...

Now that the news of Braxton Miller sitting out for the 2014 season has settled in, here is my take on the QB situation at #OhioState . #Buckeyes #bigten #ncaafootball

July has not been historically positive for Urban Meyer in his time as head coach at #OhioState. How is he handling the transgressions of his players compared to his time at #Florida ?
July is typically reserved for vacations, cookouts and fireworks. But for Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, July has become more about players in legal trouble.

It is my contention that the #Maryland will have the top receiving corps in the #BigTen when the #Terps join the conference this season. Details here...
Maryland receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long have the potential to be the Big Ten's top pass-catchers in Maryland's first season in the Big Ten.
