The Big Ten Conference has selected Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to be the site of its football championship game through 2015.

Indianapolis was selected over Chicago’s Soldier Field due to the fact the conference wanted the game indoors.

The conference had already selected Indy as the host city to its inaugural championship game to be played on December 3, 2011.

The Big Ten also announced that it would be rotating the men’s and women’s basketball tournament between Chicago and Indianapolis in 2013.

The men’s tournament will be played at the United Center in 2013 and 2015. The women’s tournament will be played at the Sears Centre in suburban Hoffman Estates, Illinois, the same year. Conseco Fieldhouse will play host to both tournaments in 2014 and 2016.

Amid NCAA investigation, bad press, Pryor says goodbye to Ohio State


Terrelle Pryor (file photo)

Terrelle Pryor was an imposing figure on the football field at 6’6. 233-pounds.

He was also very successful with a 31-4 record, with 3 Big Ten Conference titles and 2 Bowl wins.

Even with a five-game NCAA suspension in place for the 2011 season, he could’ve improved on all of those stats and championships. But all of that will not be.

Pryor announced on Tuesday that his Ohio State football career is over. He made the announcement through his attorney, Larry James of Columbus, “In the best interests of my teammates, I’ve made the decision to forego my senior year of football at the Ohio State University.”

Pryor’s announcement comes eight days after the resignation of head coach Jim Tressel, who also is facing an NCAA investigation and equally as bad press.

Ohio State interim head coach Luke Fickell said he found out about Pryor’s decision on Tuesday night. “I was notified that Terrelle has decided to pursue a professional career; I wish him the best in his pursuits.”

With Pryor leaving, the Buckeyes quarterback will be chosen from fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman, Kenny Guiton, Taylor Graham and talented freshman Braxton Miller. All four received plenty of reps in the spring since Pryor was out of action after having surgery on his right ankle. Miller and Guiton, both athletic and fast resemble Pryor the best, both played well in the Spring Game.

Guenther to retire as Illinois AD


Illinois athletic director Ron Guenther told reporters on Monday that he’ll be retiring this summer.

It was 19 years ago when he was hired to help get the financially troubled athletic department under control. He said that was the biggest accomplishment of his tenure.

The athletic department has been running in the black for 17 of his 19 years.

The 65-year-old was offered a two-year contract extension by interim Chancellor Bob Easter, but he declined.

Guenther is the longest-tenured AD in the Big Ten Conference. He took the job in 1992 and replaced John Mackovic two years after Illinois barely escaped the so-called death penalty from the NCAA. In six years the school’s football program had been placed on probation twice and basketball program once.

Ohio State sprinter/hurdler Letecia Wright was named track athlete of the week by the Big Ten Conference. This is the seventh athlete of the week honor for the All-American in her career and third this season.

Wright, a native of Baltimore, Maryland, won the award after a stellar, record-breaking performance at the 102nd Drake Relays. Wright had the best performance for the Scarlet and Gray in the 100m hurdles. The defending champion in the event used a personal-best time of 12.87 to not only win the hurdles, but break the 10-year-old Drake Relays record in the process.

The eye-popping time is also the number 4 time in Division I this season, first in the Big Ten and third best in school history.

Wright, a  senior, also teammed up with Christina Manning, Chesna Sykes and Madison McNary for the 4x100m relay. Together, that foursome broke another Drake record and an Ohio State record to finish second overall in 43.93.
