What to expect when Big Ten Network arrives Friday at Rutgers
Rutgers is the Big Ten Network's fourth stop on its annual bus tour Friday afternoon, featuring three network analysts and a primetime slot on BTN Live, the channel's top news show.
Here's a primer for what to expect when Rutgers' hour-long episode airs in front of brand-new cable audience.
BTN's training-coverage from Piscataway will include:
— breaking down Rutgers' schedule
— interview with head coach Kyle Flood
— segments on the team's new coordinators, Ralph Friedgen and Joe Rossi
— evaluations of Rutgers' offense, defense and special teams
— final thoughts, player/newcomer to watch
Also, one player adorned on the network's tour bus will sign the outside after meeting with BTN analysts Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith.
The show will air at 6 p.m. from the network's Chicago studio and feature segments from a taped set at Rutgers' practice field.
DiNardo, who shares the same high school alma mater as Flood, and Griffith visited during the spring. DiNardo sat down with Flood afterward for a one-on-one interview.
