Now that you're fully rested from Thanksgiving, it's back to business here on In The Circle. Our tour of the Big Ten continues as we focus on two schools looking to make their way back to the postseason. First, we had to Happy Valley for a chat with Penn State Head Coach Clarisa Crowell. After another 30+ win season and back-to-back years at .500 or better in conference, optimism is high for her fourth season. She chats about how her team will look entering 2024, life without lefty ace Bailey Parshall, and the changing landscape in her league. 
Next, we head to Champagne and catch up with Illinois Head Coach Tyra Perry. While the Fighting Illini finished with a winning record, 2023 fell short of their expectations. Coach Perry shares how things went in the fall, what players to look for, and her optimism for her squad heading into February.
