Football season is officially almost back, and we hold that to be true because Big Ten media days kick off today in at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place hotel in Chicago. All 14 Big Ten coaches and a variety of player representatives will be meeting with reporters to discuss summer conditioning and preview fall camp and what's ahead for the 2015 season. Commissioner Jim Delany is also there, of course, and his state of the conference address is always something worth watching.
B5Q's Curt Hogg will be in attendance covering everything Wisconsin related, so be sure to follow him on Twitter @CyrtHogg if you aren't already. For the Badgers, Paul Chryst will be bringing quarterback Joel Stave, running back Corey Clement and safety Michael Caputo to represent UW.
Click here for the full schedule of coaches' press conferences; you can watch them all live on BTN and BTN2Go. Chryst will speak at 12:30 p.m. CT on Thurdsay before the Badgers players interviews the other half of the Big Ten team representatives will be available on Friday, along with Delany, Big Ten coordinator of football officials Bill Carollo and BTN president Mark Silverman.
