Jaylen Dunlap had a blast chatting with the media during Big Ten Media Day and covered a wide range of topics. Some of the main topics he covered were why Illinois’ coaching staff is among best in college football, the leadership role he’s taking on a young defense, why he feels Lovie Smith is the best coach in college football and how to build confidence when a team hasn’t won as much as players and fans would like.
I chatted with Rashard Fant during the Big Ten Media Day about why he worked out with Indiana’s receivers this winter, leading college football in pass breakups the past two seasons, why he’s working hard at staying in the moment and why it’s important to raise the standard and expectations of Indiana football.
I chatted with Malik Turner during Big Ten Media Day about why he’s excited about the upcoming season, why Illinois is poised to surprise a lot of teams this season and the work he’s put in to become a possible NFL player after this season.
Tegray Scales chatted with the media at Big Ten Media Day about Indiana’s big game to open the season against Ohio State, why Maryland’s defense had a big game against Michigan last season, how tight and close this Maryland team has gotten, how he’s grown as a leader, and why he’s having so much fun playing college football.
Jim Harbaugh was in rare form today joking with the media at Big Ten Media Day. He says he’s not having any fun because Michigan lost three of their final four games last season and he demonstrated how he’s trying to get Brandon Peters to be louder and more vocal on the field.
