Big Ten Conference To Get Its Own Cable Channel

What's next? The Toronto Maple Leafs getting their own channel? Oh, wait...

This kind of lends irony to the "big deal" ACC/Big Ten Challenge men's hoops contest held annually during November on ESPN...the ACC can clean the Big Ten(Eleven)'s clocks at that thing every year, but they sure can't beat 'em at landing their own network.

I suppose this is as good a time as any to say that while I certainly don't expect a "Gale Force TV" to be formed anytime soon (even after the Canes winning Lord Stanley), I'd love to see the Canes get their own TV show back, even if I cannot see it here in VA/WV. (Seemingly) Every other NC athletic team has their own show...even Dook Football!! The next big step in building a (what is already getting to be quite the) massive fanbase would definitely be Fox Sports South *finally* letting the Canes get their Sunday morning show back, which was dumped at the end of the 2001-02 season, IIRC.
