LISTEN: Dave Revsine on what the Big Ten's new media deal means going forward


The Big Ten found themselves front and center in this week's headlines after news broke that the conference had agreed to a seven-year, $7 billion media rights deal with Fox, CBS, and NBC. The new agreement was obviously a big deal for everyone who keeps up with college football and college football media as a whole, but while speaking on 97.1 The Ticket Friday morning, Big Ten Network's Dave Revsine explained exactly what such a large deal means for the conference going forward.

"Oh yeah, I mean I think it's unbelievable for the schools in the league," he said. "Obviously, first of all, it just kind of gives you a lot of money to play with, and the ability to invest in your programs. I think it's tremendous for the Olympic sports, right? There's just going to be more money in the entire enterprise. So yeah, I can't see it as anything but a real positive for the Big Ten. It's great for those of us who are involved with the conference in any way. It was a really good day, yesterday, for the Big Ten. No doubt."
