RE: Big 10 revenue exceeds expectations. $54 million per team
A few key points to remember before everyone delves into the "woe is my team, we don't make enough money" mode.

1) The B1G is already getting paid for hoops. The nonsense that football drives the bus and hoops means nothing is just that, nonsense. The big boost in the B1G's contract is due to hoops earning a larger share. The moral of the story is that the P5 conferences will be getting paid much more.

2) The B1G shares gate revenue. When one considers the giant stadiums most B1G teams have, that is a nice chunk of money. The Gate revenues (which other conferences keep for the home team) are added into this pool. This inflates the overall payout at the expense of revenue for the home team. Basically, just padding the stats for the B1G payout and making Rutgers have less of a deficit.

3) The ACC will soon see increases based on the ACCN.

4) Credit the BTN for actually being foresighted enough to own and maintain their own network. NOTE: The Big East once had their own network of sorts, te first by a college conference, until a small cable channel in Connecticut bought it.

5) Most importantly: Even though $54MM sounds big, most P5 universities are billion $$ to multi billion $$ enterprises. This explains why so many schools can run in the red in the AD and not really worry too much about the balance sheets.
