    One shot changes conversation about Terps' future
    It only took one acrobatic follow shot the other night at Xfinity Center to change the conversation surrounding Mark Turgeon's surprising — and very exciting — Maryland men's basketball team. If the Terps had lost at home to a pesky...
  • Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell steals the show in win at Northwestern

    Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell steals the show in win at Northwestern
      We'll remember this game for two things: Northwestern coach Chris Collins going bonkers after a blown goaltending call and D'Angelo Russell dropping a Larry Bird (33 points) in a sensational performance. The freshman guard scored Ohio State's...
  • Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky worked his way to unlikely stardom

    Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky worked his way to unlikely stardom
    Before adoring fans called him "The Moose" or "Joe College" or "Frank the Tank," Frank Kaminsky was known simply as "Frankie" or "Little Frank." All year round, Little Frank would tag along with his 6-foot-10 dad to gyms around Chicago to watch "Big...

    Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame, Ohio State and unions
    It was a short and understandably brief trip down memory lane. Lou Holtz’s final Notre Dame team was the first I ever covered for the Tribune. The year: 1996. All the Irish had to do was beat 5-6 USC to make a prestigious “alliance”...
  • NU AD Jim Phillips praises Pat Fitzgerald ahead of 'important' year

    The view from Jim Phillips’ office is mundane … a parking lot outside Ryan Field. Turn the other way and you can see why the Northwestern athletic director is so bullish about the future — a giant color depiction of the $260 million...
  • Northwestern football in need of change; will it happen?

    Northwestern football in need of change; will it happen?
    It struck me while covering Cardale Jones' spectacular performance against Wisconsin. And J.T. Barrett's near-perfect night at Michigan State. Ohio State is a program. Every coach says his team adopts a "Next Man Up" philosophy, but how many can...
  • Northwestern coach Chris Collins not afraid to shake things up

    Northwestern coach Chris Collins not afraid to shake things up
    Chris Collins coaches the way you and I would. He was so disgusted with Northwestern's Dec. 17 home loss to Central Michigan, he changed the pregame routine. He removed the locker-room chairs so his players would stay upright and lathered as they...
  • Jim Harbaugh belongs at Michigan after he and 49ers part ways

     Jim Harbaugh belongs at Michigan after he and 49ers part ways
    One minute after Jim Harbaugh's news conference ended Sunday, the 49ers announced what everyone already assumed: The team would part ways with the coach who guided them to three consecutive NFC title games. "It's been the time of my life," Harbaugh ...
  • Postseason questions already aplenty for Northwestern

    There's a time for deep thinking – and a time when it's better to be a dummy. Or to simplify, in football parlance. The deep thoughts will come at the end of this miserable Northwestern season, a campaign marked by the Wildcats' incredible...
  • At its best, Michigan State romps over Northwestern at its worst

    When these teams met in East Lansing, Mich., a month ago, 40 minutes were not enough to decide the outcome. Tuesday night's game at Welsh-Ryan was in the books by halftime. By then, Michigan State had reeled off an absurd 22 consecutive points. The...
  • Teddy Greenstein's Big Ten football picks

    Teddy Greenstein's Big Ten football picks
    Northwestern will break your heart — and your record against the spread. After witnessing the Wildcats' debacle at Iowa, there was no way I could pick them as a 1.5-point underdog to Michigan. The NU offense woke up late, but the Wildcats still...
