Big Ten lunch links

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

CHICAGO -- Greetings from the Big Ten meetings, which are in full swing today along the banks of the Chicago River. Penn State head coach Joe Paterno had a little trouble locating the football coaches' meeting room this morning, but he eventually found his way.

I chatted briefly with Purdue's Danny Hope, Minnesota's Tim Brewster and Michigan State's Mark Dantonio this morning. The coaches are booked the entire morning and most of the afternoon, so it's a full day for them.

More to come later, so check back later for updates. For now, a few links for you.
