    Looks like ESPN forgot that IU vs Purdue is the best rivalry in the Big 10.

    Alex: The Saturday and Sunday B1G Tourney games are listed as being on CBS Sports.  The regular season games are listed as CBS…any idea if this means those 3 games will be on the cable channel that’s now known as CBS Sports Network (formerly CBS College Sports, it’s changed names about a hundred times)?  That would surprise/disappoint me.

    What does ESPN wildcard mean? Also, are all of the games guaranteed to be nationally televised? Hoping they are not regional, as I am in Atlanta and pissed to find out that my new place doesn’t have the option of Big Ten Network.

    HoosierHawk….I understand completely!  I actually moved to Norcross 3 years ago and experienced the same problem.  I’m now about 30 miles South of Atl in Peachtree City and Comcast does offer BTN.  Thank God I dealt with this when CTC was just arriving versus this season.  I suppose this means alot of Sports Bars in the coming month lol…Good Luck!

    Perhaps the B10 network has the rights to cash-cow-games like this one? It would be a shrewd move by the network if so…

    SOMEBODY has to show the IU/Purdue game.

    A very good point…… if you had to miss any season, the last few probably weren’t the worst to miss. Luckily I think my provider is offering it now. Otherwise, I’ve heard Atlanta chapter of Alumni Assoc meets at Hudson Grill in Midtown.
