Yes, it’s getting to be that time.

John O’Korn Talks QB Competition

Best of luck to all the guys battling it out for the starting spot.

4* QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson Seriously Considering Michigan

I did not know about this part:

Remember, Harbaugh heavily recruited -- and thought he had the inside track for -- Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III for his 2008 Stanford recruiting class after he had already secured a pledge from Andrew Luck.

You know, I think that Harbaugh guy’s going to be alright. Decent evaluator of talent, I’d say.

Detroit News Big Ten Preview

A very nice collection of easy-to-absorb lists. Also, a shout-out for including Indiana’s Rashard Fant.

The Big Ten, As Star Wars Characters

Michigan is a villain, of course.

Wisconsin 2016 Quarterback Preview

This was a good read. I love the term “Dublin Missile.”

Nebraska: Five Years In The B1G

And this was one of the better roundtables I’ve seen across SBN. Well done, guys.

Northwestern Position Previews: Defensive Line | LBs

The front seven should be a real strength for Northwestern this year; I’m more bullish on the d-line than Inside NU’s Zach Pereles is (the three players mentioned in the key losses were all very solid, but the depth they had last year was absurd), and I’d also point out that pass-rush specialist Ifeadi Odenigbo, a guy I’ve been expecting to break out for a while now, is finally up to 250 pounds, so he should be able to survive as more of an every-down defensive end. (Play him, Fitz!)

As Ian McCafferty touches on with the linebackers, I like what Nate Hall can do as a Darron Lee-type linebacker, a role that Drew Smith filled very well for them last year.

Really Lazy Predictions For The Big Ten West

What’s the second-best thing to really bold predictions? REALLY LAZY ONES.

The Opening Preview

The very bottom of this article features a shout-out to 2019 athlete Owen Pappoe, who is apparently about to become the youngest participant ever at The Opening.

Also, thank goodness there’s something to talk about in July. The Opening will be interesting for that reason alone.
