Each Monday morning during the Big Ten men’s basketball season, the 14 Big Ten men’s basketball coaches hold a Big Ten teleconference with reporters from around the country. We post the audio for each segment of the call here, and we do this every Monday afternoon.
The calender reads February 14th, which means that Valentine’s Day is here. In honor of the holiday, we want to pose a question to all our Big Ten hoops fans: Which Big Ten men’s basketball coach do you love the most?

Without ever seeing Thad Matta’s DVD collection or Netflix queue, it’s safe to say he’s watched Will Ferrell’s “Semi-Pro” a time or two. He’s had to, because the coach referenced one of the movie’s most popular catchphrases in Sunday’s postgame press conference following No. 14 Ohio State’s victory over No. 2 Michigan. The phrase: “E.L.E,” or “Everybody Love Everybody.” Watch Matta’s Hollywood reference now.
