Man the sports haters have come out in force on this one.
I'm not a sports hater. I love sports, especially college football and college basketball. I just think the B10 is obscene for demanding these fees for games which were mostly widely available (the games that lots of people wanted to watch anyway). And I am concerned what happens when the other conferences follow suit. Will we have 10 conference networks raising our television bills.
Put it on a sports tier or charge a subscription like Game Plan and Full Court.
The die-hard Purdue fans can then pay if they want to watch Eastern Ill at Purdue on Sept 8. Because I'm going to be watching Nebraska at Wake Forest, Marshall at West Virginia, or Miami at Oklahoma. Then later on that day, I will miss the BTN's exciting showing of Western Ill at Illinois so I can watch Notre Dame at Penn State (on ESPN), South Florida at Auburn, or Virginia Tech at LSU.
