Wonder if this has anything to do with BTN being available on DirecTV nationwide and the Pac 12 wants equal treatment.  Dish and other carriers just put it on regional availability.

Your history on the Big Ten deal in 2006 is a little off. ESPN low-balled the Big 10 and told the conference to take it or leave it. Delaney accepted the challenge and that laid the foundation to launch BTN.
