Big Ten media days schedule

CHICAGO -- Greetings from the Hilton Chicago, the new site for Big Ten media days, which kick off Wednesday morning.

As a reminder, we'll be live-blogging throughout media days, starting at 10 a.m. ET Wednesday and likely going until 5 p.m. ET. Colleagues Brian Bennett, Mark Schlabach and Matt Fortuna are here, along with WolverineNation's Michael Rothstein, BuckeyeNation's Austin Ward and NittanyNation's Josh Moyer. We'll have notes, quotes, pictures, videos and observations throughout the day. We're also looking for your questions and comments in the live blog or on the Big Ten blog Twitter page.

Before getting to the media schedule, we have four Big Ten players signed up to chat with you! We could add more to the list, but here's the schedule:

Noon ET: Nebraska cornerback Ciante Evans

12:15 p.m. ET: Penn State guard John Urschel

1:30 p.m. ET: Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter

3:30 p.m. ET: Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland

Send us your questions now for the players here and here, or tweet us here, and we'll ask them the best ones during the chats.

OK, now to the schedule ...
