BIG TEN MEDIA DAY FRIDAY TIMELINE
This is a blog post updated throughout the day with links, tweets, pics and videos from media from the Big Ten media day in Chicago. The timeline will update frequently, so check back or refresh often.
Where: Hyatt Regency, Chicago, Illinois
TODAY WILL BE DIFFERENT as the coaches aren't scheduled to speak as they were yesterday. Denard Robinson will speak today on behalf of all Big Ten players. The rest of the day is mostly local media getting to round table with the players and coaches present at the luncheon. We'll use the same timeline format to update you, hopefully Twitter doesn't fail us again.
Live Stream: BTN2Go
Television: ESPNU and Big Ten Network
List of players attending.
Real Time Google News coverage.
Twitter hashtag: #BigTen , #B1G
NOTE: We mods will try our best to keep the timeline full of interesting, Iowa and the absurd. We will, at times, take breaks. So please, commentariat, keep the ball rolling. We can update as time permits.
