CHICAGO -- Greetings from the Hilton Chicago, the new site for Big Ten media days, which kick off Wednesday morning.
As a reminder, we'll be live-blogging throughout media days, starting at 10 a.m. ET Wednesday and likely going until 5 p.m. ET. Colleagues Brian Bennett, Mark Schlabach and Matt Fortuna are here, along with WolverineNation's Michael Rothstein, BuckeyeNation's Austin Ward and NittanyNation's Josh Moyer. We'll have notes, quotes, pictures, videos and observations throughout the day. We're also looking for your questions and comments in the live blog or on the Big Ten blog Twitter page.
