Big Ten Media Day: Miller, Abdullah, Gordon, Diggs heading to Chicago

Kurtis Drummond, Braxton Miller

The ACC was not the only conference to announce which players will be heading to the conference media day circuit in the next few weeks. The Big Ten released its list of players that will be making the trip to Chicago for the Big Ten’s media day, the first as a 14-member conference with the additions of Maryland and Rutgers. With Maryland on board, that means a chance for Big Ten media to get to know some of the new faces in the crowd, like Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs, already one of the best playmakers in the conference.

The Big Ten media day event will include the familiar faces as well, of course, like Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon, Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah, Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner and Michigan State safety Kurtis Drummond.

The Big Ten’s media day event is scheduled for July 28-29 in Chicago. Here is the full rundown of Big Ten players appearing at Big Ten media day and luncheon, as released by the Big Ten Thursday.

    Surely all of these players will have to pay union dues at the door. Then the union thugs will turn around and hand over a cut of the take to the Feds who back them.

    Are you kidding? The unions love parties paid for by ‘donations’.

    The ohio players are there to explain to their parole officers why they aren’t in Columbus with tethers. Meyer is scouring the state pen in joliet for his newest tight end. (aren’t any “tight” ends left in the pen urban) .
