    I'd never thought I'd say this, but I'm rooting for Comcast on this one.

    "We're offering the channel in the region for about $1 a month per subscriber. Outside the region, we're offering it for a dime. So for Comcast, the blended national rate of this channel is really about 30 cents when you consider it across their subscribers nationally."

    Wonder if he got dizzy from spinning.

    I live in Big Ten country, I'm a fan of a Big Ten school, I roll my eyes at the anti-Big Ten rancor elsewhere in the nation.

    Having said all that ... fuck the Big Ten Network.

    Who the fuck outside the Big 110 region would even want to watch that monstrosity of boredom? Sure not everyone who went to a Big 110 lives in that region now, but still. It's bad enough we get bored to tears every Saturday during football season, and during their boring hoops season. All the time? Ayeeeee!!!

    I'm waiting for John Swofford's incredible marketing machine to crank out an ACC Network. ::)

    Hasn't ESPNU taught these guys ANYTHING?
    You aren't getting top dollar and thrown onto basic cable.

    Agreed with everyone here. Let's say the network plans just 8 hours a day of original programming out of every 24 hours, with the rest to be covered with replays and paid programming. That's 2920 hours to fill in a year.

    35 football games x 3 hours per game = 105 hours
    100 men's basketball game x 2 hours per = 200 hours

    So, being EXTREMELY generous and saying that all the football and men's basketball games will be of interest to a lot of sports fans in Big 10 country, that still leaves 2,615 hours of THSP (total horse shit programming) in a year.

    Or viewed another, the games anyone will give a shit about will constitute approximately 2.5 hours of programming per week.

    Be a Yankee in the middle of the SEC-propaganda bullshit.. you'll see who...

    But Delany is an arrogant fuck and I hate Comcast with a passion... can we root for both parties to explode?

    What happens in five years when the big ten decides they want to make more money and they relegate the U OF M/OSU game to their network?

    I can't believe no one sees this coming. Between the B10 Network and the NFL Network, we are being forced on digital cable and satellite dishes. So much for the casual fan.
