BTP Needs Writers: Apply Now!

Come join the best Big Ten basketball site on the interwebs.


Once again, BTP is making a call to its loyal readers. The site here has been growing like crazy and is moving in an exciting direction. However, we still have more growing to do and once again, we are looking for qualified writers that can help produce content.

We are currently looking to add several writers to the staff. Anyone is open to apply. This means anyone. Whether you have writing experience or not, whether you are 10 or 70, and whether you have Big Ten roots or not, feel free to apply for a position. We are simply looking for people who have some basic writing skills, are passionate, and are willing to put in the necessary time and work.

We are willing to review writers interested in any Big Ten related topics, but there are three specific areas that will be of preference in this search: Illinois background, Nebraska background, recruiting background. This does not mean applicants must have the deepest knowledge in one of these areas, but a general knowledge and willingness to address one of these topics would be preferred. However, this is not required, it is only a preference.

I can't promise fame or fortune for joining the site, but I can promise the ability to reach a national audience and the ability to write about a topic that is a passion for many. Basically, we can offer you the potential to get your name out there. Even now, we already have writers on our staff from the national SBNation site, 247Sports, and team based SBNation sites.

If you are interested in applying. There is just one easy step. Email: We do ask for a writing sample (preferably Big Ten related), but anyone is encouraged to simply email to get some more information.

And finally, we look forward to hearing from you all!
