    The LA Coliseum is a much more iconic and historic venue than Williams and especially Mariucci.

    I accept no name that isn't related to the barnyard.

    John Deere, Case/IH, Pepperidge Farms, Cargill, Pillsbury, etc., but no corporation that has nothing to do with agriculture.

    Perhaps, but the ability to restrict access by the big ten may simply cut out the middle man (comcast). Granted the distribution costs will increase, yet the big ten may end receiving more.

    Big ten sports is a niche and is not related to the problems exprienced by ESPN. ESPN Failed to control runaway costs while not noticing the increasing competion. MOreover, they got into the politics of sport instead of broadcasting. Matter of fact, ESPN became ESPn by boradcasting the Big East. The Big Ten musty maintain a quality product, but nostalgia will always produce some inelactisicty for college sports even as pro sports waters down their product.
