The Audible: Why Urban Meyer is a ‘modern-day genius,’ B1G and books

With the recent injury news regarding Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, it’s an interesting time in the Big Ten as we prepare to begin a new season.

Big Ten Network studio host and author Dave Revsine dropped by The Audible with Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel to discuss the league, his new book, "Opening Kickoff: The Tumultuous Birth of a Football Nation" and how the way we consume college football has changed in this new media age.

Among the Big Ten topics covered:

* How crippling is the loss of QB Braxton Miller to the Buckeyes when they have a head coach who is "one of our modern-day geniuses?"

* Will Michigan State’s defense experience a drop-off in 2014, or is that not even in play because of the Spartans’ excellent DC?

* What’s it really like to be around Nebraska coach Bo Pelini when the cameras are off and sense of humor comes through?
