Some news and notes from the B1G these past couple days that haven't been mentioned with all the Urban stuff but is pretty relevant.
- Indiana named RS SO QB Peyton Ramsey as their starter. Ramsey played 9 games last year, starting 4 including their game against Michigan throwing for 1252 yards, 10 TDs and 5 INTs on 65.4% completion and 6.11 YPA. He took over for Richard Lagow last year mid-season but didn't play in the last 4 games. He was 20/41 for 178 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs against Michigan. He beat out Arizona grad transfer Brandon Dawkins. (link)
- Indiana also suspended starting RB Morgan Ellison indefinitely. Ellison rushed for 704 yards and 6 TDs on 142 attempts as a freshman last year and was IU's leading returning rusher. (link)
- Rutgers named true freshman Artur Sitkowski as their starting QB. Sitkowski was a 3 star out of NJ who went to IMG Academy and originally committed to Miami (YTM). Sitkowski was benched midway through last year at IMG in favor of Zack Annexstad, who walked-on at Minnesota and will be starting there. That means 2 true freshmen QBs out of IMG will be starting openers in the B1G this year. (link)
- Nebraska JR RB Tre Bryant medically retired. Bryant rushed for 299 yards and 2 TDs on 51 carries in the first two games last year before missing the rest of the year. (link)
