Schools in the Big Ten are expected to get a shocking amount of money from the conference.

According to numbers released from Michigan to The Detroit News, the conference will pay members $56 million each. That’s nearly double what the PAC-12 and ACC are paying out, according to CollegeFootballTalk. That last numbers for the SEC put the number at just over $43 million, which means the B1G absolutely crushed everybody.

Say whatever you want about the Big 10, but there’s doubt the conference is a money making machine. It crushes everybody when it comes to counting up the cash.

It’s pretty much an ATM at this point that is just printing money. Go ahead and cry, SEC fans. We won’t blame you.

SEC fans have been told their whole lives they’re the greatest, but the numbers aren’t even close. We’re sleeping on mattresses made out of $100 bills in the Big Ten. Welcome to big boy football.

The money the conference is getting from TV deals and all other avenues is going to really start paying off. We have more money for facilities, recruiting, salaries and pretty much whatever else we want.

Again, I’m sure SEC fans will try to stand up and spin this. Go ahead. The numbers don’t lie. We’re flush with cash. There’s no other way around it.
