Big Ten media days player lineup

By Adam Rittenberg

The Big Ten has announced its player lineup for preseason media days and the annual kickoff luncheon, to be held July 26-27 in Chicago. All 12 head coaches will be in attendance.

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson will speak on behalf of the players at the kickoff luncheon July 27. He has a very tough act to follow (Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins hit a home run with his speech in 2011), but it's great to see Robinson, shy and reserved at the start of his career, reach this point.

Here's the full lineup:

Nathan Scheelhaase, QB, junior
