Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst speaks to the media during the Big Ten Football Media Day Thursday, July 30, 2015 in Chicago.

“He gets more pub than the Kardashians. What the hell is this?”

— University of Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst after being asked numerous times about his relationship with Nebraska coach Mike Riley


“It’s like, OK, you’ve got an iPhone and you’ve got a flip phone. You see all these great features the iPhone can do and then you look at the flip phone. Which phone are you going to go with? That’s what I compare Wisconsin to Nebraska. Nebraska was the flip phone and Wisconsin was the iPhone. I was like, ‘I want to go to the Apple Store. I don’t want to go to the Sprint store right now.’ Who wouldn’t want to go with what’s best at that moment?”

— Corey Clement on why the Badgers’ 70-31 win over Nebraska in the 2012 Big Ten Championship game was so influential in his decision to attend UW


“I think he’s a handsome man. I’m glad he took them.”

— Michigan State defensive end Shilique Calhoun on shirtless photos of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh


“All we can do is watch the indicators, watch it closely, and then dive into it with a sledgehammer if we start to see something that’s disrupting the team.”

— Ohio State coach Urban Meyer on making sure his team avoids complacency after winning last season’s national title


“Does that reflect what I’ve done already to this point?”

— Chryst, jokingly, after being asked where public speaking ranked on the list of things he does or does not like to do as a head coach
