(Disclosure: I'm a member of the Big Ten Fan Council and didn't have to pay for my ticket to the luncheon and other events.)
A few weeks ago, I was able to attend the Big Ten Football Kickoff Luncheon. A full post will show up about the day shortly. While I was there, I grabbed a few photo-ops with the life-sized bobbleheads that are promoting the new show called Big Ten Icons. The show doesn't air until September 18, but they're only airing on the Big Ten Network Icons #20-#1. Starting next week, they'll begin put up #50-#21 on the web. Illinois is well represented (based on the bobbleheads) by Kendall Gill in hoops and Red Grange in football. If the Galloping Ghost isn't #1, the system is fixed.
Here's me with the guys from both of my schools - Kendall Gill from Illinois and Joe Girardi from NU.
I'm pretty sure this is Glen Robinson - the Big Dog! I was over by the Purdue folks and he was standing around. I sidled up and posed.
