The economy remains sluggish in many sectors, but it is still good to be in the Big Ten football business. Very, very good. The league's fiscal year doesn't end until June 30, but according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Stu Durando, conference payouts to member schools should reach another record high this year. Figures provided by Illinois show that Big Ten distributions are expected to be $25.7 million per school, including $7.6 million from the Big Ten Network.
