Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delaney spoke further about the CIC/Big Ten TBI Research Collaboration this week.  

As covered by ESPN, Commissioner Delaney talked about the impact of the collaboration:

"In addition to trying to work with the NFL and NCAA rule committee members, and our officials and our coaches," Delany said, "we feel that we are uniquely positioned because of the research that occurs on our campuses, not only in the hard sciences but the social sciences because of the placement of our doctors and trainers having been together for a very long time.

"It's a beginning of a long journey, but we're hoping 25 or 30 years from now that the discussions we're having now, if we're able to get funding from any number of sources, can provide the long-term research and information to help guide decisions."
