If I could get BTN and my wife could get her channels that have all the crazy medical or human interest shows, I'd look into cutting the cord.

For a guy with all that money and for as easy as it is to back up your phone contents, smashing one's phone may not be that indicative of guilt.

Nice to see there are some PSU basketball fans who have money, too :)

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State long-time supporters Peter and Ann Tombros have committed the leading gift to begin renovations to the Penn State basketball film room and training table.

The gift will propel the $1.1 million project, which encompasses the creation of a state-of-the art film room in the Bryce Jordan Center. The training table updates include a new server and eating area for Nittany Lion student-athletes, coaches and support staff as well as additional storage


A server? Really? I guess our boys just can't serve themselves.





I'm guessing this is the new server

HBO had the political pull and premium model in place, so it was able to break free. The BTN is probably a long way from that. I'm sure they've done a lot of modeling, but it's hard to imagine a price point that makes up for all of those forced cable subscriber dollars. HBO gets to keep both - great shows and already a pay service in the first place.

Makes you wonder with Fox being desperate for college football and Rupert Murdoch never afraid to throw money at something how the B1G TV contract will work out.  If that was any time to have a separate streaming model, that'd be it.

People may be cutting cable, but I see no evidence that BTN (for the purposes of football and basketball) will be offered on any platform other than as an accessory to your existing cable subscription.

ESPN has most of their content streaming live.  You can access it if you have the right cable package.  I have it through Sling TV.  I can't imagine the BTN getting left too far behind in that race.

Right, if you have a cable package.  Those cutting the cord don't want cable packages.

Read my next sentence.

My bad.

10-20 years down the road, sure, but you're not going to weaken the pot for the next 10 years to set up for the decade after that.

Since it's all about money in the end, what is there to gain from Kansas and Oklahoma, the 31st (KC) and 61st (Tulsa) biggest TV markets in the country?

With Rutgers and MD, they got the #1, #9 and #26 (though it melds with #9) TV markets.

Chances of SMU either not having Brown as coach or having NCAA sanctions before either player would get through college: high.

Jim Delany isn't going to let Fox dictate who's in his conference.

From watching Moore's highlights, I'm surprised that even at 5'8/5'9 that he doesn't have more offers.

Bad news for Frazier.  Portland just signed another PG with a guaranteed contract.

Erickson had zero, zilch, nada, no reason to agree to the consent decree.  NCAA had nothing and the entire world knew it.  The only reason to do so is if you're complicit in the grand scheme.

Mitchell?  He was complicit in the whole thing since his reports cover just as much non-athletics content as athletics content.  Isn't he supposed to be monitoring just the AD?

Delany?  He ran with it just like Emmert did.  He only "helped" PSU when he needed PSU penalty-free come TV contract negotiation time.

Erickson?  Give me a break.  He sold his academic soul to get a better retirement.

At least OB deserves to be on that list.

Those guys are better off not winning those competitions.  You sign your life away if you win.

How exactly does this crystal ball non-sense work?  I mean, 86%? Not 85%  Or 87%?

oh i see, it's literally just 7 dudes predicting where he's going. such methodology

But a lot of those guys don't put in their picks (or won't change their initial picks) until they have some info that a recruit is definitely going to pick a school.

One thing is he didn't fulfill his contract obligations for autographs and other stuff.  The other which was more debatable was that his band wasn't family friendly.

Unless he got injured, Staten looked to be 3rd string as he only played in 1 game.
