The Big Ten announced the details of the television coverage of the 2010 Big Ten Football Media Days.
The Big Ten Network will provide four hours of live coverage on Monday, [August 2] including the full press conferences for all 11 head coaches and Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delany. Mike Hall and Chris Martin will anchor the network's coverage from the Big Ten Network studios beginning at 10 a.m. CT. The Big Ten Network will provide live online coverage of the media sessions on Monday and Tuesday via Twitter and www.BigTenNetwork.com. Monday's press conferences will be streamed live on www.BigTenNetwork.com, and the website will also feature blog updates, frequent video clips and interviews with Big Ten newsmakers.
On Tuesday, the Big Ten Football Saturday crew of Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith will sit down with Big Ten football coaches to get their thoughts just days ahead of preseason camp. These interviews will be featured on a 90-minute Big Ten Kickoff Special that will air at 1 p.m. CT on August 7.
For the fifth consecutive year, the opening session of the Big Ten Football Media Days will appear on an ESPN Network. Coverage by ESPNEWS will begin on Monday at 10 a.m. CT, and will feature all 11 head coaches and Commissioner Delany either live or tape-delayed as they address the assembled media. In addition, select Big Ten coaches and players will appear live on ESPN's College Football Live or on ESPNEWS.
Adam Rittenberg is reporting the details on Nebraska's participation in the upcoming Big Ten preseason meetings.
[Nebraska athletic director Tom] Osborne will take part in several important meetings of top Big Ten officials and athletic directors, who are expected to discuss potential divisions, a possible championship game in football and scheduling implications for the 2011 season and beyond. Multiple Big Ten athletic directors have told ESPN.com that the possibility of adding a ninth Big Ten game to the schedule will be discussed in Chicago.
The Big Ten has invited Nebraska officials to attend all business meetings during the school's transition period, but Nebraska doesn't become a full voting member of the league until July 1, 2011. So Osborne won't have a vote on divisions, scheduling or a championship game, but his voice will be heard in those meetings.

As if I needed a reason to Hate PURDUE even more
I thought schedules were made years out. when will the Huskers play us?
...Big Ten play in 2011. When they play Michigan is TBD based on divisional alignment decisions that will be made during the upcoming preseason meetings.
1) Leadership Division
2) Scholarship Division
So which would Michigan rule?
I think this will be a big indicator of things to come for Nebraska in the Big Ten. Not having a vote but having a voice is always tricky, and if Osborne voices his opinion strongly on a few issues and is shot down this all might look like Nebraska is a second-class citizen in the league (which, let's be honest, they will be until things normalize with profit-sharing and all that), which is exactly why Nebraska left the Big Twelve. I'm not saying Nebraska's going to pitch a hissy fit (even if they have to travel to Happy Valley every year), but I think we'll all get a good idea of the way Nebraska is being viewed and how easily they are fitting into the brave new big ten.
...operates by consensus. Osborne's opinions on alignment will certainly be taken into account and it's a practical certainty that he and Delaney have already discussed this and other issues. Osborne will find that the Big Ten's approach to conference management is much more to his liking - and more lucrative.
I could not agree more with MGoShoe on this...Just ask Penn State fan what coming to the B10 has been like and if they have been treated fairly in the porcess and the upside. Husker fans will soon be saying that this move should have been done before allowing the Big 8 to be prostituted to the Southwest conference.
