I have been stewing about the BTN's epic fails to return back to coverage of the Michigan-UMass game after the in-game updates and other stupid sh-t. The only outlet for my anger is to send a complaint letter to the BTN. In preparing to do so, I though others might be interested in lodging complaints too since I'm not the only one paying good money for the BTN (not exorbitant money, but all money is "good" money).
If you all are interested in sending a similar complaint, below is some helpful links and information you can simply cut-and-paste into the website form. If you see any necessary changes or ways I can beef up my message please do not hesitate to let me know. If anyone has any other ways to get in contact with the BTN, please share.
I am using the following link to submit my complaint online: http://www.bigtennetwork.com/dpp/about_us/contact-us
At that page, it prompts me to enter the following information. I've taken the liberty of filling in the blank on some of these for your ease in sending complaints as well:

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing in regards to the BTN's live coverage of Michigan football games. Please refrain, cease, and decist from using of regular cutaways from action on the field for things like in-game updates and advertising except during clear-cut stoppages of play when Michigan has the ball. As you likely know, Michigan runs a "hurry-up" offense and the majority of viewers do not want to miss any plays on the field. Thank you in advance for your compliance.
