The Season Begins – Just Not On TV

Well, Ohio State Football is starting another season. I am very excited about this team, not because they are as good as last years, but because I don't know what to expect.

The only downside to this of course is that the Big10 Network is trying a money grab with Fox Sports a.k.a. News Corp. You see Fox owns 49% of the Big10 Network. They also own DirectTV so they (News Corp.) win either way. If they succeed you will end up with a monopoly of college sports very similar to the BCS (Bowl Championship Series). Can you imagine having all college and pro sports pay-per-view?

As much as I love capitalism, there's something about this that does not feel right.
