    BIG 10 Network could prompt Big 10 expansion

    DesMoinesRegister.com

    I'm not buying the network will have that kind of impact...IMO...the Big 10 needs to add one more team (and split into two divisions like many conferences) regardless of network.

    Re: BIG 10 Network could prompt Big 10 expantion

    hell, if the Big 10 Network doesn't give into the cable companies and agree to a digital sports tier, the only thing the Big 10 Network is going to have an impact on is the new TV contract with ESPN Plus and things going back to the way it used to be because I don't see the BTN last very long if things stay the way they are.

    Re: BIG 10 Network could prompt Big 10 expantion

    Right...and...(I posted this in a separate thread as well)...

    Supposedly, no longer will Mediacom be able to play the replays of Hawk games on Channel 22. The Big 10 Network will have rights to that, from what I heard someplace (can't find it now) yesterday.

    So if Mediacom and the Big 10 can't strike a deal - not only will Hawk fans miss a few games - they won't be able to watch the replays!

    Anyways...

    What kind of impact is the network going to have outside of football and basketball season? How many are really going to tune in to watch the other things they expect to broadcast there? And even during football/basketball - the games that will be put there are the non-desirable games. You'll have the fanbases from each side watching - and that's it.

    A very small market this is catering to and so far - a very small distribution channel as well.

    Aren't you usually railing on people for mis-spellings???

    Check the thread title.

    Usually? Find the last time I railed on someone for a misspelling - it's been a while.

    Plus, I simply did a copy and past from that page - I can see they've updated it now.

    Nice try though...

    RAGBRAI, baby!! Seriously, what was Delaney smoking yesterday when he suggested televising RAGBRAI? I'm sure people will be tuning in left and right to see exhausted bicycle racers....err riders, chow down on pork chops and doing the hokey pokey in some small town square.

    I heard the same thing - the fool not only insulted us by saying RAGBRAI would be on there - but then proceeded to call it a race.

    Very bad job outta Delaney.

    Challenge isn't the word - I wonder how long you've been waiting to take a swing at me.

    Accusing me of railing on people when I haven't for a very long time - nice.

    If ya have something to add, I'm sure we'd love to hear it. However, crap like this just doesn't belong here - I do hear they like it on the ESPN.com board though.
