CHICAGO -- Big Ten player and coach interviews begin at 8 a.m. Central time, so check back for updates throughout the day. First, here's a look at the news this morning:
Wisconsin's health outlook looks good after a painful spring, Jeff Potrykus writes in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The defensive line could be limited in training camp, but other positions look solid. Quarterback Dustin Sherer, spotted hobbling around Madison a few weeks ago, underwent minor knee surgery this summer. The starting job seems like Allan Evridge's to lose.
Quarterback Kellen Lewis has been reinstated at Indiana, but he won't be handed his old job right away, Jeff Rabjohns writes in The Indianapolis Star.
Big Ten coaches and officials didn't try to mask their recent big-bowl performances, and there's plenty to prove in 2008, The Sporting News' Dave Curtis writes.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz made sure to meet with the alleged victim in the sexual assault case involving two of his former football players, Scott Dochterman reports in The (Cedar Rapids) Gazette.
In addition to Kevin Grady's suspension, Michigan defensive lineman Marques Slocum is no longer on the team.
Freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor generates more buzz than Ohio State's proven stars, Ken Gordon writes in The Columbus Dispatch.
Daniel Dufrene will get the first shot at winning Illinois' top running back spot, but three young players also are in the mix.
Ohio State coach Jim Tressel has a nice problem: trying to keep all his veteran players on their toes for training camp. In an effort to shake things up this summer, Tressel brought in some notable speakers, former 49ers Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott, The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Doug Lesmerises writes in his blog.
Living the simple life hasn't been easy for Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez.
The Chicago Tribune's Teddy Greenstein has a coach-by-coach wrap-up of Thursday's media sessions, complete with the day's funniest quotes.
Michigan State is more stable than its in-state rival and hopes to get over the hump when it visits Ann Arbor on Oct. 25, The Detroit Free Press' Shannon Shelton writes.
Can you name Michigan's starting lineup this season? The Detroit Free Press gives it a shot. Steven Threet is the top quarterback, while Brandon Minor gets the nod at running back.
