Big Ten media days are just around the corner, as the league's coaches and top players convene at the Hilton Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday. ESPN.com will be there, providing comprehensive coverage of the happenings, mainly through our live blog.
Remember what we did this spring at schools like Michigan and Nebraska? We're doing the same thing during media days, much like what our friends at the SEC blog brought you last week from Hoover, Ala.
We'll kick things off Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET and go until around 5 p.m. ET, before picking up the blog again Thursday at 10 a.m. ET.
Brian Bennett and I will lead the coverage along with national columnist Mark Schlabach, WolverineNation's Michael Rothstein, BuckeyeNation's Austin Ward and NittanyNation's Josh Moyer. The live blog will feature videos, notes, pictures and chats with us and Big Ten players (more on that later). An avalanche of content is coming your way, so be ready.
We also need your help. If you have questions for us or for the players and coaches, send them to our mailbags here and here. You can also submit a question for us on our Twitter page. We'll attempt to interview all the players and coaches in attendance, so don't be surprised if we ask them one of your questions.
We're setting up several player chats -- Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland is tentatively on the docket -- and will get you the days and times as soon as possible.
This is the unofficial start to the 2013 season. Get fired up!
