I wouldn't presume to call either team a liar, but I called BS on Directv saying they were only showing "Ranked Opponents" when in fact they are not with the BIG10 channels this weekend..
How is it "BS" to use the PAC-12 Network's own broadcast schedule to show that they are quickly running out of marquee match-ups?
P.S. - The Big 10 Network already has a deal. This is about the PAC-12 Network not getting one done.
That same Commissioner who "is a fish out of water", successfully expanded the Pac10 to 12 teams, negotiated a huge contract with ESPN and Fox to grant each school $30 million a YEAR, and got Dish and 4 of the largest cable companies in the country and more than 40 others, one of which is the LARGEST --- Comcast. So, is this guy a fish out of water? The Jury is out!
Once again, not a single one of those cable providers are national providers. Also, many of those cable companies are either smaller, regional providers or are only offering the PAC-12 Network in specific systems within their overall footprint. DirecTV is the big ticket. It's one of only two national television service providers and easily dominates the other.
