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."
