    Sign of the times

    Right now on the BTN. Another episode of "The Big Ten's Greatest Games". This time, we have a Big XII Conference battle between soon-to-be Big 10 member Nebraska and soon-to-be SEC member Missouri.

    According to the BTN, Eric Crouch is one of the greatest QBs in B1G history.

    Re: Sign of the times

    and their programming about Big 10 coaching legends Bob Devaney and tom Osborne.

    Are these BTN dumb***** an extension of some TavernHawks?

    Delusional, unfounded arrogance, limitless ignorance?

    do they actually believe what they broadcast? It's fricking comical

    Who owns the rights to these videos? The schools or the conference?

    Almost every time I watch something on the Big 10 channel, I wish I could be watching a Big 12 channel. Why isn't there such a thing? I suspect it has to do with the Longhorn Network, but I'm hoping for a more detailed explanation.

    Re: Sign of the times

    So apparently when a team switches conferences all their history is now included in the new conference? Is the Big 10 claiming any of the bad seasons in Nebraska's history too?

    Re: Sign of the times

    I've complained about this before, I can't believe that the Big 12 doesn't have the rights to these games. Just stupid for this to be on that network.

    Pretty sure they've done that already by airing them as greatest moments on BTN.

    I'd like to congratulate the Big 12 on our 2011 Rose Bowl and 2012 Orange Bowl victories as well

    Re: Sign of the times

    The B1G dominated the 90's with the Big Red Machine tearing up the national championship scene in 94, 95 and 97.

    In fact in 97, TWO big 10 teams won it all with Nebraska and Michigan splitting the MNC.
