Illinois FOIA

The University of Illinois responded to my FOIA request and provided me with a breakdown of conference payouts. For some reason they wouldn't provide me with an itemized breakdown of television revenue (shocker). But, here's the general breakdown for 2006-2010.

My initial thoughts are that these reporters were indeed very confused. Total revenue from the Big Ten and the NCAA is below 20 mil, so if the BTN is paying out that much that's some weird ass math going on. Anyhow, I still have records request outstanding from Purdue, Indiana and Ohio State, so we'll see if I hear something more conclusive back from them.

Wait a minute

The TV break out also has to be a combined FB/BB deal. That makes it worth significantly less than our NBC deal no matter which way you slice it.

This is awesome. Now someone remind me...

by domer.mq ⌂ @, Wednesday, June 02, 2010, 11:34 @ Chris (HCC)

which columnists/journalists do we now point at and laugh, and what were the claims, exactly? 20 million a year in TV revenue alone, right?

Thanks for doing this.

And you wonder why newspapers are dying

A few bloggers and message board jockeys manage to do better research than every single major sports outlet because they're bored and spitballing.

Better research doesn't get you on "Around the Horn".

22 million each year to each school from the BTN

by MadisonDomer, Wednesday, June 02, 2010, 12:47 @ domer.mq

That was the first one.

They've been going down ever since.

Will Delaney start losing credibility if nothing happens?

by Jeff (BGS), A starter home in suburban Tempe, Wednesday, June 02, 2010, 13:02 @ MadisonDomer

I've always heard he is very influential in NCAA football and one of the biggest players in the "no playoff" camp.

If nothing happens, I kind of wonder if this won't be just another one or two of a thousand cuts into the influence that the Big Ten and Delaney have traditionally had.

I'm eagerly awaiting a "Delany's Big Bluff" article

by Jay ⌂, San Diego, Thursday, June 03, 2010, 10:58 @ Jeff (BGS)

or a more incisive, "Why is the Big Ten puffing up its revenue numbers?" piece.

Can you send me the original?

I want to see if I can fit it onto one page.

Was that table included, or did you have to put it together from the source material?

The table is all they ended up sending me

by Chris (HCC) @, Paradise, Wednesday, June 02, 2010, 07:44 @ Jay

They were nice, but resistant to my requests for more. They said that satisfied my initial request and I would have to resubmit for more. I'll probably end up firing off another one shortly.

Like you, I would love to see the TV revenue broken down. Maybe a couple specific requests, like how much from the BTN, how much from the CBS contract, how much from ABC/ESPN?
