"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Big Ten Network
The 1984 game is a great, treasured piece of college football history.
And it has as much to do with the history of the Big Ten as the Wars of the Roses have to do with the history of the United States. Pity, too--I would have loved studying 15th-Century Plantagenet feuds in AP US History in high school. No beef with Maryland, but this seems a bit hard to adjust to.
Figured we could talk about the "documentary," if you will, here.
Pretty serious implications for the Big 10 Network?
Clay says Intel is planning to deliver cable content to any device with an Internet connection. And instead of having to pay $80 a month for two hundred channels you don't want, you'll be able to subscribe to specific channels of your choosing.
Here's the key paragraph:
This set-top box, said by industry insiders to be available to a limited beta of customers in March, will offer cable channels delivered “over the top” to televisions anywhere there is an Internet connection regardless of provider.
Just watching the show and it was great to hear very comments towards how involved Hoke is with the defensive line on each practice that they have seen and how those players react and comment on this involvement. just how much coaching and improvement those players make during the last two seasons.
That should be copied, saved and played for every single D lineman we are recruiting. Revsine and Griffith both pointed to the significant improvement and Griffith noted how much better both Washington and Campbell have become each week during the season. Nice to see recognition for their efforts on what was a big big question mark going into the season.
I know this may be a little too early for the networks to decide but I am really hoping for a 3:30 ABC kick. I was wondering what you all thought after looking over the schedule. There are many attractive games that weekend for the networks.
Evidently the contract between Big Ten Network and Dish Network expires on August 31, and may not be renewed. The BTN has a website devoted to this, where they are encouraging Dish Network subscribers to contact Dish and tell them they better re-up with BTN.
Fortunately, Michigan's first game on BTN isn't until UMass so I have a few weeks to get a new cable or satellite provider if this doesn't get resolved. But I'm wondering if anyone been following this situation and has any insight into what the likely outcome here is?
