Re: Espn +

We're not huge donors by any stretch but we do send what I consider a fairly good bit of money to KSU. I'm on satellite internet. Just now, I came to this site, opened a couple of threads in new tabs and VOILA!!! I had to wait about 5 minutes for them to load. So I would assume + is entirely out of ...

I don't mind PPV. Just say that's what it is. Then make it simple for old guys like me.

it means they promised fans only one football game per school would be espn plus, then they reneged on that later when espn asked to put more on the platform so espn could have more espn plus customers the first year. b12 ethics on this one are miserable.

Re: Espn +

this is what commissioner bob said during b12 media day. A: Non-revenue ones, mostly. The idea is to give women’s basketball, baseball, softball, wrestling and the like a platform. But, yes, the eight participating schools will have one football game per season and a combined “upwards of 75” men’s ...

Re: wowzer, oSu game on espn plus ...

Does this mean we're losing national exposure compared to prior years? Seems like almost every game was on Fox or ESPN.

Re: Espn +

$5/month is hardly taking advantage of anyone. the principle lost here is telling people one thing and doing another, which the conference has in this case. it's also disappointing that gene taylor has remained quiet. i suppose he and his counterpart at oSu are chatting about this with the b12 offi...

Re: Why Business Can't Pay College Players

You raise some good points here. As you point out, someone will always find a way to stretch the limits. My position has always been that a proper order should be maintained. A student athlete should be just that. They have scholarship, tutors and it's find to give them a stipend as they spend a gr...

Re: After ESPN+ purchase, now what?

I won't say never but right now we have satellite internet....better than dial-up but that's about it. Fiber is supposed to be here by the end of next year, we'll see. So it won't happen for me till then. I think that they're cutting their proverbial noses off to spite their faces. Why screw with a ...
