It’s that time of year again. No, not the time where you wake up and think, I get to watch real, live football today. Rather -- today is the day you get to wake up and think, My God, I’ll take anything you give me, just give me football PLEASE TELL ME THE OFFSEASON IS OVER! That kind of frantic thought process usually starts seeping into college football fans right around the time individual conferences host their Media Days. And for Big Ten fans in particular, that day is today.
The Big Ten Media Day takes place at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago, and coverage of the spectacle kicks off at 11:00 AM EST. The Big Ten Network will be televising a 15 minute press conference for each head football coach in the conference. Each coach will have an opening statement followed by a Q&A session with the participating media outlets. Here’s the press conference schedule:
11:00 AM Ron Zook (Illinois) 11:15 AM Bret Bielema (Wisconsin) 11:30 AM Danny Hope (Purdue)
11:45 AM BREAK
12:00 PM Luke Fickell (Ohio State) 12:15 PM Kevin Wilson (Indiana) 12:30 PM Joe Paterno (Penn State)
1:00 PM Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern) 1:15 PM Brady Hoke (Michigan) 1:30 PM Bo Pelini (Nebraska)
1:45 PM BREAK
2:00 PM Kirk Ferentz (Iowa) 2:15 PM Jerry Kill (Minnesota) 2:30 PM Mark Dantonio (Michigan State) 2:45 PM Bill Carollo (Big Ten Coordinator of Football Officials) 3:00 PM Mark Silverman (BTN President) 3:15 PM Jim Delany (Big Ten Commissioner)
Ohio State will also be represented by three student-athletes -- Mike Brewster, Orhian Johnson and Andrew Sweat.
The Big Ten Network will also be streaming live coverage of the event online -- which can be found here. Check back here on Friday afternoon for my review of the event.
