SHOW ME MORE: The AP noted the Big Ten is "allowing an unlimited number of replays to be shown on video boards in football stadiums." Stadiums previously were allowed to show "one replay at no less than 75 percent of real-time speed." The new policy allows for "multiple replays at any speed" (AP, 8/28). ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg noted the Big Ten also is "encouraging its institutions to provide full Wi-Fi service throughout the stadiums, upgrade in-stadium video content and create social media lounges in their stadiums." Big Ten average attendance last season "declined to 70,387, the league's lowest mark since" the '08 season (ESPN.com, 8/28). ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel writes the unlimited replay is "a smart decision" (ESPN.com, 8/29).
