Getting the Big Ten Network in NYC (or now LA for that matter) has less to do with actual fans in the market and almost everything to do with forcing cable companies to pay for the network. Getting companies to include it in their sports packages is already a W for the Big Ten, regardless of who watches.

Well there still has to be enough people to watch for the cable companies to cave, and there is in each of those markets, no question.

Right, I'm just saying that threshold is a lot lower than what people think when arguing no one in NYC cares about Rutgers/Big Ten. If they can bundle it into an ancillary sports package because there's enough minimal interest and it's not a separate charge specifically for BTN, that's a W for the conference and cable companies.

Pretty sad stuff with the passing of Oregon TE Spencer Webb. He’s from my hometown and was on his way to getting the starting job this year. I’ll never forget seeing his TD catch vs Auburn in RS Freshman year when he “mossed” the DB.

R.I.P.

The state of California is planning to sue to keep UCLA from leaving their conference. Somesuch about how it will hurt the other state universities. Feels like a desperate long shot.

Well the Big Ten on CBS and the SEC on ESPN is going to be weird as hell.

But the Big Ten kicking ND out of prime time night games on NBC is fun!
