One thing I've learned since the Big Ten Network came about is that they don't even broadcast all of their Big Ten football or basketball games. In fact, since BTN's arrival more games are on ESPN and ABC than they ever were at least here. What's the point of having a dedicated channel and it's overflows to a certain conference when you give the games to other networks? Oh that's right. Money.
Point of my story is, I would personally expect more PAC12 games to be on channels you can receive (ABC, CBS, ESPN etc..) outside of P12N in the future even if DirecTV gets the channels or not.

I'm not sure how the big 10 handles what games are ESPN etc. the Pac 12 split the games up evenly with Fox and ESPN/ABC. They have a draft to see who gets what games. So, one provider wouldn't get all the good games. 1/3 Fox, 1/3 ESPN and 1/3 Pac 12 Network. There will always be some good games shown on the Pac 12 Network.

I guess I was too subtle.

For all of those who questioned moderation in public, you got your last free pass with the deletion of your posts. Please remember that questioning moderation in public is against forum rules and future instances will result in infractions or bans as appropriate.

I am closing this thread. I had hoped that someone with an interest in college football would start a new one in the sports programming forum, but since no one did, I've done it for you.

Anyone who chooses to be rude or publicly question moderation will find themselves quickly banned from the new thread.

For the rest of you, feel free to discuss Pac-12 as much as you want. The point was that you were going incredibly off topic and being rude, not that you couldn't discuss Pac-12. I'm sorry some of you didn't get that.
