NU's Dan Persa a player to watch

There

may be a heat warning today, but college football season started Thursday at

the McCormick Place Hyatt with Big Ten Media Days.

For

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

Division list.

Persa’s

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.

Overheard:

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.
