What are the five key questions going into the Big Ten season that need to be asked at Big Ten media days?
Daily Five: Big Ten Media Days Key Questions
Yes, we all know Jim Harbaugh is feeling the pressure to beat Michigan State and Ohio State, no matter how he answers it.
Yes, we all know Scott Frost is feeling proud and it’s a “dream come true” to coach at Nebraska.
What are the real questions that need to be asked at the Big Ten media days? Here are five, and I’ll help out with the answers.
5. Q: What percentage of the things Larry Fedora said at ACC media days do each of the coaches believe to be true?
Everything about everything Fedora said has to be brought up to every coach at all the media days from here on, and those coaches had better be ready with answers that won’t be trending five minutes later.
Of course, major college football head coaches know exactly how to sidestep this landmine.
They’ll simply answer by saying that 1) they didn’t quite hear everything Fedora said and it’s on to Cincinnati. Or 2) that’s his opinion, and he has a right to it, and/or 3) laugh and joke that it was “interesting,” diffusing the situation, even though they probably believe a few key parts.
So it’ll be important to drill down further.
Do you believe in the research and findings on CTE? How do you coach differently knowing what this does to players? Are you okay with the rule changes to make football safer, and do the changes make football less tough?
And, of course, we have to ask if the changes to the kickoff rules are going to bring down our country.
