After watching, reading, writing, and tweeting about Big Ten’s 2010 Media Event for the last few days, I think I might need rehab for information overdose.
It was nearly impossible to keep up with the plethora of tweets and articles about every team and coach in the league. Some stories relate to social media’s influence on the conference; some stories provided updates on the health of coaches. Some made predictions; others warned against predictions.
I wanted to click on every article link I saw, and nearly came close to doing so before I ran out of caffeine and collapsed onto my keyboard in a spasm of exhaustion.
No matter what a Big Ten football fan’s fetish is, something will likely be written about it this week. The summer was long, writers are eager to get back to the grind, and the league’s media days provided no shortage of storyline ideas.
After replenishing my energy drink supply, I was able to skim through my RSS feed and pick out a few items that some people may have missed in the flood of post-presser information.
Some of what you are about to read is not for the faint of heart.
