When this photo surfaced earlier this summer, I couldn’t help but take a look around Big Ten football camps to see if there was anything similar. I did find this in Iowa City and later this in Ann Arbor, but they’re not nearly as old-school. So, unfortunately, there’s nothing as epic as Auburn’s new practice bottoms. I did notice a few changes from last season, though, and you can see all of them in this post.
CHICAGO – BTN will televise more soccer this season than ever before, with at least 60 matches set to air on BTN, including for the first time each round of the Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Soccer Tournaments. Each BTN broadcast is also available on BTN2Go.
The start times for each game of the 14th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge, presented by DICK’s Sporting Goods, to be played Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 27 and 28, were announced Tuesday morning. See when every game will be played in this post.
With the first Big Ten football game still three-plus weeks away, I’m looking for any excuse to talk football. Uniform updates help me pass the time. Today is no different, especially with the release of Wisconsin’s new adidas alternate uniform. On a smaller note, the conference has a new rule that requires every team to wear a “B1G” patch on its jerseys. It’s been reported quite a bit and it’s something I tried to spotlight in my media days Clothes Call recap, but here is photo evidence.
It’s Monday, and we’re one week closer to football season. There, that should help you get through this day. If not, maybe my latest Big Ten daily links can do the trick. Get to clicking in this post.
Here’s a great question CBSSports.com asked a pool of 100 coaches: If you could add any one player to your team for next season, who would it be? Great stuff, right? It’s even better when you study the results, which yield three Big Ten stars in the top 7. Topping the list, of course, is Indiana’s Cody Zeller, who received 35 percent of the votes, 23 percent more than the No. 2 guy, UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad. Ohio State’s Aaron Craft came in third (9 percent) and Michigan’s Trey Burke finished seventh (5 percent).
