ESPN's Big Ten Blog is a fairly new endeavor of theirs (began July 3) and so far I love it. Adam Rittenberg was hired away from covering Chicago area teams (NW, Notre Dame, DePaul and others) to be ESPN's Big Ten Blogger.
Rittenberg chats with Decker about playing baseball, what was learned from last year and what we can look forward to this year.
What do people not know about your team right now that they'll find out in the fall?
ED: That we don't give up. We're definitely a bunch of guys that are fighting for starting spots and won't give up, because 1-11, that's something you carry on your shoulders for a while. You definitely want to erase that season by being successful.
I hope they can learn from last year's mistakes and make some serious strides forward.
This is basically the same thing Kevin Seifert left the Star Tribune for as he is ESPN's new NCF North Blogger. Also a very well done blog so far.
