may be a heat warning today, but college football season started Thursday at
the McCormick Place Hyatt with Big Ten Media Days.
the first time in the conference’s history, the league announced a Players to
Watch list, which included Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa in the Leaders
inclusion is a no-brainer, but more importantly it solidifies the fact that
he’s 100 percent healthy after rupturing his left Achillies tendon in the
Wildcats’ victory over Iowa last November.
There are at least 500 members of the media here, perhaps the largest media
turnout ever. The large turnout surely has to do with the addition of Nebraska
to the league this season.
