    What? They don't have AT&T DirecTV in B1G country? Of course, you would have to give up the Pac 12 network but that is a sacrifice I would be willing to make.

    Sounds like they will still offer BTN inside the Big Ten's footprint. So if you're in Utah, say goodbye.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Where are you seeing that? The article seemed to indicate that Comcast dropping B10N wouldn't impact local Nebraska fans as much since Comcast doesn't have much of a presence there. But I don't see how you could read this passage without concluding that the Big 10 footprint will definitely be affected:

    While this may not be a huge blow for the fans back in Lincoln and Omaha who mainly deal with Cox and Spectrum as their cable providers, it affects the rest of the Big Ten in a large way. Many Nebraska graduates who live in Chicago have Comcast, along with those residing in other midwestern states such as Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, etc. Losing access to Big Ten Network would be a blow for not only the football team, but also other sports such as volleyball, and basketball.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    So Nebraska is not in the Big 10
