Nitt Links Is Excited For Media Day

That's right, Big Ten basketball is starting up today with the 2010 media day in Chicago. Talor Battle and David Jackson left yesterday to represent Penn State and there ought to be a lot of interesting quotes to read throughout the league. Robbie Hummel's injury has really opened up the field for a lot of players to make their case for Big Ten player of the year, and if Penn State can get it going there is a really good chance Talor could finally get the credit he deserves. That's not to say there isn't anybody else out there to give him a run for his money, but this in theory is his best shot at the award.

On the football side of things nothing much has really changed. Rob Bolden passed his concussion test yesterday, but that doesn't really mean a whole heck of a lot at this point. We'll just have to see how it plays out.

Lions flustered with Michigan’s balance

"We were just looking at a play on film where he tucks it and runs for three yards, so you think it’s a run," Penn State safety Drew Astorino said. "Then he pulls it back and throws it right down the middle."

"With a talented offense like Michigan, we want to be able to help out the defense the best we can," guard Stefen Wisniewski said. "We want to score points, and we want to hold onto the ball to keep Robinson and Michigan off the field as much as we can."
