Pelini Talks Huskers at Big Ten Media Days

By NU Athletic Communications
Fifth-year Head Coach Bo Pelini took the podium at Big Ten Media Days on Thursday, addressing members of the media for 15 minutes at the McCormick Place convention center in Chicago.

All 12 Big Ten Conference head coaches met with the media on Thursday. Among the topics Pelini covered with the group were his thoughts on Nebraska's second year in the Big Ten Conference and his impressions of senior I-back Rex Burkhead, who earlier Thursday was identified as one of 10 players to watch in the Big Ten this season.

A complete transcript of Pelini's session with the media, courtesy of the Big Ten Conference, is also available. Nebraska seniors Burkhead, Will Compton and Kyler Reed took part in the first day of interviews on Thursday, and Greg Sharpe caught up with them to get their thoughts on the day. 

Big Ten Media Days continue on Friday at McCormick Place.
