During Thursday’s Big Ten Basketball Media Day, first-year Nebraska men’s basketball coach Tim Miles had a playful moment with the press. He took out his phone and took a panoramic photo of the media in the room, then posted it to the Internet via his Twitter account @CoachMiles. See the picture and the tweet in the rest of this post.
During Thursday’s Big Ten Basketball Media Day, I went around and asked one player from all 12 teams the following questions: 1. Toughest Big Ten road venue? 2. Favorite Big Ten player to watch? 3. Best Big Ten uniform? 4. Favorite Big Ten road trip? The players’ answers were anonymous, and the only rule was that they couldn’t use their school for any answer. See the winners, plus a couple sample quotes, in this post.
