What Had Happened Was...

CHICAGO -- While the schedule said teams would be showcased in an orderly, one-at-a-time fashion for 10 minute intervals, the reality of Big Ten Media Day has been vastly different.

Chaos is the best word to describe what is taking place at this moment in the media interview room.

With players and coaches going in and out for TV spots and other reasons, and with all teams and coaches -- men and women -- all appearing in the interview room at the exact same time, it truly is a chaotic scene here at the Marriott O'Hare Chicago.

Some of the early highlights of Big Ten Media Day include second-year Indiana head coach Kelvin Sampson getting swamped almost as soon as he sat down in his chair, and Michigan State coach Tom Izzo being bombarded by interviewers as well.

Sampson and Izzo were easily the two most recognized and sought after interviews at the Media Day, with their seniors, IU's D.J. White and MSU's Drew Neitzel, coming in a close second.
