The Badgers will be part of the second day of interviews in Indianapolis.

NCAA Football: Big Ten Media Days Jim Young-USA TODAY Sports

With the first day of Big Ten Media Days in the books, which featured P.J. Fleck telling us that he is not good at standardized tests, Scott Frost lying about Nebraska’s standing in the Big Ten West and Jim Harbaugh announced that he will probably be dying soon, it is time to turn our attention to the second day!

There aren’t nearly as many “personalities” on the docket for Day 2, but Paul Chryst and the Wisconsin Badgers will be featured. Coach Dad takes the stage at 11 a.m. CT on Big Ten Network and later in the day a trio of UW players will be available to the media as well.

The three representatives that the Badgers are sending are senior TE Jake Ferguson, senior CB Faion Hicks and senior ILB Jack Sanborn. On Thursday, Sanborn was one of 10 players named to the preseason Big Ten Honors list. The conference doesn’t do a preseason all-conference team or anything, so this is the highest honor that a player can receive from the Big Ten.

The rest of the lineup features Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano, Michigan State’s Mel Tucker, Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, Indiana’s lovable Tom Allen, Purdue’s Jeff Brohm and Ohio State’ Ryan Day.

We will have coverage of the Wisconsin portion of the event live on Twitter and here on the site over the weekend. There probably won’t be anything earth-shattering revealed by Chryst, but you never know! Maybe this is the press conference where he tells us the secret to the perfectly grilled steak!
