When Big Ten Football and Beyond airs every Wednesday at 7 PM ET, viewers may not realize that creating Beyond, as it is known in-house, is a 36-hour process to produce slightly less than one hour of actual show content. Show producer Paul Cordell oversees the entire process from start to finish in coordination with host Dave Revsine and analysts Gerry DiNardo, Chris Martin, the Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein, and Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples, as well more than a dozen of other production staffers.
