I’m still on the road with the Big Ten Football Preview Tour and we’re in Indiana today. Tonight at 10 p.m. ET you can catch our preview show on Purdue. This tour is keeping me busy as I preview each stop and recap each practice - it’s all over here. I’m also providing updates and photos via Twitter. Don’t forget to check out my colleagues @BTNDaveRevsine, @GerryDiNardo, and @HowardGriffith, too. Now, let’s get to my Thursday links.
Six stops down, we’re officially halfway through the 2012 BTN summer bus tour. On Wednesday afternoon, the BTN crew was in West Lafayette, Ind., taking in Purdue practice. With practice now complete, it’s time for DiNardo’s post-practice tweets – a feature he’ll provide after all 12 stops across the Big Ten. Watch our Purdue Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET Thursday on BTN/BTN2Go. Next stop: Bloomington, Ind., where we will watch Indiana practice Thursday.
The BTN tour bus was in West Lafayette, Ind., on Wednesday so our crew could watch Purdue practice and get a chance to talk to the coaching staff and top players. One of those players, Kawann Short, also added a little something to the BTN tour bus. As is tradition this summer, the player from each team represented on our bus signed their likeness. See a picture of Short, the highly hyped defensive tackle, autograph our bus in this post.
The BTN bus heads south from West Lafayette to the rolling hills of bucolic Bloomington in beautiful southern Indiana to check out Kevin Wilson’s 2012 Hoosiers. Watch the Indiana Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET Friday on BTN/BTN2Go.
