    God only knows how successful this could become and there is a chance that the Big Ten Network won't be maxed out for awhile. I don't see how a Pac-10 and Big 12 combined network would work that well compared to the Big 10.

    Texas & Cali markets alone should do better than the current Big10 footprint.

    That could very well happen...but if Rutgers is in the Big 10, that will change.

    Market size is important but ratings are more so.

    Texas is football crazy but Cali is not. The Midwest is also, and the Big Ten owns, or will own, all of the major TV markets of the Midwest pushing into the Northeast.

    If the Cali markets were such a goldmine then even slow-and-easy Tom Hansen would have gotten better media rights for the Pac-10. This is the same reason why NYC and the big Northeast markets don't deliver mega-bucks for their universities.

    The South has the smallest demographics but unreal TV ratings, that is why the have the most lucrative contracted media rights (the Big Ten gets more, but they only exceed the SEC with profit distributions. The SEC has guaranteed money).

    This is why Nebraska is worth more to the Big Ten than Rutgers, Syracuse, or UConn.
