I have found that a lot of people have hit this blog through google searches for their respective teams rosters that I put together back in May. Well now, with school in session and the schedules released, all of the official schools’ websites have listed the rosters. It has allowed me to double-check and update all of them. So if any finds any mistakes, which I doubt you will, PLEASE let me know through a comment or email me. If you would like to check out the Scholarship rosters for each and every Big 11 team, just click the ‘Big Ten Rosters’ page on the right sidebar and boom, there you have it. Maybe if I’m motivated, I’ll add all the walk-ons, since some of them really do contribute on the court.
EDIT: I decided that it would just be better to make a page to the right with all 11 rosters included in it. Much easier to compare them all, but I didn’t include who’s new and not. But I’m not going to keep like 20 posts on my front page just to include those rosters. They will now always be linked on the right for future reference.
Don’t you hate how schools’ official athletic sites take like a thousand years to update their schools’ rosters for the upcoming year? Well, I do. Since the spring period ends tomorrow, most schools’ rosters will be set for 2008-2009.
Below is the current scholarship rosters for all 11 Big Ten teams (let me know of any mistakes). I will update them if any more signings occur. I also noted of a few prospects that are known to have interest in Big Ten schools and are unsigned. So unless there are some serious surprises tomorrow, these rosters are pretty much final. It’s just nice to get them all down and organized, instead of waiting until like October for the official sites to put up theirs.
