A state lawmaker says he's not satisfied with answers from the UW-Madison, regarding their contract with the Big Ten Network.
UW officials say their contract with the Big Ten Network will mean more than $6 million for the school this year. Most of the revenue will go to the athletic department, although some will go to academics as well. State Representative Dave Travis (D-Westport) says it's still not worth it though.
Travis says the deal is a disaster because the UW is blind to the fact that the average person is being denied the ability to see away games, since the Big Ten Network is only available on satellite TV or through some small local cable providers.
Travis says he still wants to know why Badger games can't be shown on public television. He's renewing his request for an audit of the University's contract with the Network.
