I was a student at Michigan when The Big Ten Network came on the air. I despised the channel very much at the beginning especially when Comcast wasn't showing it because I would miss games that would normally air on ESPN in Ann Arbor. But I am really starting to like this network. The HD broadcast is crystal clear, nearly as good as any other network. They also have shows that feature academic on goings at the various Big Ten schools. Now that I live in Louisiana I would not be able to catch some of the Michigan games that would not be shown in the broadcast region down here.
this may be of some local interest
