A Fark Handle: skrame: That means those areas boast more cable subscribers who, Big Ten leaders hope, will soon have to pay more than $1 a month to their cable or satellite provider for the Big Ten Network -- whether they actually want that programming or not.This is bullshiat. And that's all I have to say about that.it might be bullshiat, but it's the entire reason maryland and rutgers were added to the conference. and if you're upset about that dollar, you're going to be really pissed when you learn that espn (and that's just espn, not espn2, espnu, or the ocho) is costing you over $5 a month on your basic cable bill.
cleveralthere: 2 sides of the coin here. 1) Many of the players are compensated for their efforts in the form of a full scholarship to an institute of higher learning, many of them flagship state programs or well respected private institututions. You would have to be very foolish not to take advantage of that opportunity (which sadly, many players are). 2) The amount that the players are compensated vs the amount of revenue generated by their activity is orders of magnitude lower than they would be paid at the professional level. It particularly bothers me that coaches at the NCAA level make millions of dollars while the players are only getting room bored and tuition.draw your own conclusions
