Suck it ESPN
I hope I don't jinx Michigan but if we should root for any P5 it's big ten. I love that they are dominating and quieting most espn partisan haters. They are obviously in bed with ACC and SEC.

No doubt ESPN favors the ACC and SEC. They spend most of their telecasts promoting their upcoming games.

Probably because ESPN owns the ACC and SEC networks and Fox owns the Big Ten network.

^ thanks for stating the obvious. ESPN is so vanilla. They never back their talent. They can't say anything slightly controversial without being suspended.

FS1 should create a sportscenter type show. People still watch those and you can repeat them alot during day. Their debate shows talk about NFL 90% of the topics.

Well considering Espn (Disney) owns fox now, all we are going to hear more is about the SEC and ACC. Basically a monopoly of sports channels now.

I think they have some pull in college selection committee.

ESPN always had east coast bias but now it's conference bias too.

Oh no was FX? I loved the creative flexibility they give show runners there. That will kill the shows.

FX is owned by 21st Century Fox and that is the primary asset bought by Disney, so I believe they now own FX.

That's a shame. TV execs consistently meddle. That's the end of FX

Oh did not know that about FS1. I wonder if regular Fox TV will just eventually disappear with most content going to ABC

I doubt it. I'm sure there is the big ten primetime games, NFL football amongst other programming contract issues. Don't think they'll want to move to low rated FS1.

Can guarantee the writing will become bland and conservative on all tv shows though.

Side note- I think it kinda sucks since they rolled out championship that the other bowls seemed to lose tgeir luster. Outback used to sell out on new year's day.

It is just small one. Starts at semis. Some can say regular season is quarters and knock out stages.

I love the bball tourney but their regular is not watchable. College football can have important games every week.

Still not a playoff. UCF, for example, had no shot to be in it. And with only 4 teams out of 130 with all of them put in based on a vote, that's way fewer than basically every other sport on Earth would have.
