About talking10

We here at talking10 are all about the B-1-G baby! This site was born out of the love for the academic and athletic powerhouse that is the Big Ten conference. Our founder and Publisher, Andy Coppens, started this site after spending time as the Big Ten Football Lead Writer at Bleacher Report.

talking10 was founded in 2014, with the goal to give the best independent, truthful and interesting content on the conference. We are also the only independent source that covers basketball, football and hockey across the conference.

Our goal is to give you the same coverage of your favorite team through our 14 team-specific sites. Each will have their own beat writers, focusing in on original and truthful reporting and opinion pieces on their specific teams. We are always interested in you joining our team. To that end, drop us a line at for more information.
