With kickoff to the football season just a month away, we’re giving fans a look at the conference’s 2013 team posters. See the released Big Ten posters now, including Michigan’s 3D one, in this post. The missing posters will be added once the teams have released them.
There are several Big Ten quarterback situations that are rock solid as teams enter training camp. Without a doubt, Braxton Miller will start for Ohio State; Taylor Martinez for Nebraska; Kain Colter for Northwestern; Devin Gardner for Michigan; Philip Nelson for Minnesota; and Nathan Scheelhaase for Illinois.
Future Big Ten member Rutgers is retiring its first football jersey number. On Sept. 14, the Scarlet Knights will retire Eric LeGrand’s No. 52 at High Point Solutions Stadium. LeGrand, a former defensive tackle, was paralyzed when he broke two vertebrae while making a tackle on a kickoff return in an October 2010 game.
