Day One of Big Ten Media Days is over and from all accounts Brett Bielema was one of the more sought after interviews. He had a couple of great quotes, including this gem about missing Terelle Pryor -
"There wasn’t any question about who won that football game," Bielema said. "The only bad part about Terrelle leaving is he kind of claimed the week after that it was a fluke. That they’d beat us 9 out of 10 times.
"To me, we really wanted to play that game against him. Unfortunately we won’t."
And this one about cheaters in the NCAA -
"If I had a dream world, I would say hammer the guys that don't do things right. To me in my profession, the only thing I get very frustrated about is when I know things go on that aren't right, mainly in recruiting. That's the biggest thing that comes across my desk. People are willingly and knowingly abusing rules and breaking things. To me, when you are consciously aware of abusing a rule, there's no excuse for that."

Moving slightly away from Media Day, Tom Mulhern at Madison.com has a break down of the tight end position. The job to replace Lance Kendricks will be a bit of a committee approach with Jacob Pedersen and Manasseh Garner getting significant early reps.
