I don’t doubt it and if true shows how petty this conference is. Honestly based on how bad this has been handled i hate to see how s#!tty our next tv deal is. 

 

Maybe the allure of the big ten was all about Delaney. How far will it fall the next decade? Next tv negotiation will say a lot 

You'd think this stupidity would be punished but it's all about the product and the amount of eyeballs.  Some of the largest alumni bases in the country and they will still make bank, count on it.

Question: B1G, are you going to play football this fall?   B1G:

The original goal was to “flatten the curve” or so we were told. Somewhere we shifted to cancel everything until it is gone or a vaccine is found.

How long does it take to announce a decision already made?

You've apparently never been married.

You're right, the amount of eyeballs and product is a big part of the equation. However, the lack of a live product versus the SEC, ACC & Big 12 is definitely going to be a factor. The other conferences will soon be filling air time with their fall sports and not just on Saturdays. Yes, we hope the Big Ten reverses their decision soon and we get back to normal, but the poor publicity/leadership will most certainly be targeted by TV executives on the next round of negotiations. 

 

Yes, the conference will still make an ungodly amount of money. I do believe the SEC & ACC are going to be much more competitive in their deals. It is going to be harder to justify that the Big Ten should get $10 million more per school than the ACC or SEC schools knowing that some Big Ten schools could quickly choose to not play at the next crisis in 3, 6, 9 years, etc. Versus the other two conferences who appeared to be solidly committed to finding a way to fulfill their TV contracts to the best of their ability.

Please help, my children are becoming hockey fans. I can't afford to let them play hockey.

 

I bet your family dentist is salivating at the thought. :D

I'm starting to give up the Big Ten having any competence on this. They should have been working on stuff for not just a month, but like 7 months since this whole pandemic started. 

 

For how much the commissioner and these presidents get paid they don't seem to be earning it.
