Chicago — There was a familiar feel to Big Ten media days Thursday afternoon at the Hilton Chicago.

Yeah, everyone was clamoring around the Ohio State coach — it was Ryan Day this year, not Urban Meyer, so that was different — and the shooting star that is Nebraska coach Scott Frost shined brightly. The picks came out, too, and that meant more talk about Ohio State and, of course, Michigan.

Most think this is the Wolverines’ best shot to win the Big Ten since Jim Harbaugh arrived, but most also think Day and the Buckeyes will be right there in the East.
