    From the Chicago Tribune

    Big Ten Network Mark Silverman indicated that while ABC will get the first pick of conference football games this year, “there will be many weeks when the Big Ten Network will have the second or third selection over ESPN and ESPN2.” Silverman added he is “very confident all the deals will get done” with MSOs in the Big Ten footprint (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/19).

    Will these games be blacked out if you don't subscribe to Game Plan? I hope not....
    But they do black out all the NHL hockey and M<ajor league BaseBall games now shown on the Sports pak, what a rip off...

    Not so great news today. The Indy Star, in a little segment at the bottom of the front page of Sports, says the Big Ten is asking $1.10 per subscriber for the channel, more than the NFL Network by $.31!

    That doesn't bode well for the Big 10, espcially when they are going to ask cable companies to put their network on the basic tier.
