The Big Ten at the midpoint

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

The 2008 season has reached its halfway point, and this week we'll assess each Big Ten team as well as the league before the stretch run. Here's the schedule for team-by-team reports for the next three days.

Today: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa

Wednesday: Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern

Thursday: Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin

There also will be a conference overview on Wednesday, where several awards (most surprising team, most disappointing team, midseason MVP) will be handed out and I'll tell you which teams are going bowling.

Check back later this morning for the first team reports.
