Where I live, ABC/CBS/ESPN/FOX show all the good games people want to watch.
ESPN3 shows all the crappy games that only alumni want to see.
Conf. channels show the shittiest games that even ESPN3 doesn't air.
Big10 crap seems to always come on in the noonish timeslot on ESPN/ESPN2. They also occasionally come on ABC. Is ABC or whatever blacked out in those areas if a big10 game is on (ie, is that game shown on the conference channel)? That seems impossible, since many big10 games are going on at the same time. I feel like they're just trying to add games to their conference channel, which only shows **** games no one watches. Am I missing something, or is that simply the goal? i.e., to take Rutgers/MD off the air and only be available in the new markets on their subpar conference channel? Is that the goal? If so, they are dicks. If I were a fan of one of those teams, I would resent that.
They're about even with the Big East/ACC in my eyes. What a joke. Better on-field product = better conference, at least in the long run, imo.
