CHICAGO — The Big Ten kicked off the 2014 football season Monday afternoon at the Hilton downtown Chiacgo with day one of the annual Big Ten Media Days to preview the upcoming campaign. All 14 schools were in attendance with nearly 600 credentialed media members from around the country.
Buckeye seniors Braxton Miller, Jeff Heuerman and Michael Bennett represented the Buckeyes along with head coach Urban Meyer, who met with reporters and network TV partners for about 6 hours.
Miller, the reigning two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year, was chosen as one of 10 Players to Watch by conference media members. Media do not vote on a preseason champion or player of the year.
Players and coaches will be back at it Tuesday morning with more interviews, photo shoots and autograph sessions followed by the Kickoff Luncheon, which will be hosted by ESPN’s Rece Davis.
