It's fun to have the annual game on ESPNU for UP, but I can watch almost every Georgia women's soccer game on the SEC Network. How many people get the SEC Network? Don't answer that. But, the presence of the B1G Network and the Pac 12 Network are probably huge recruiting tools for those schools.
That's a good point. A few years ago UP had more games on TV than any school in the country. In 2005 the stadium filled, 1000 fans watched in the basketball arena, and it was on TV besides, when UP played Notre dame.
Still, you can watch every home game on HD on the web now, with pretty good production values.
At some point there is hope the WCC will go on cable, but that will be Basketball driven, just as most TV is football driven in the BCS.

Agree that's the point aI tried to make in my original post. Big 5 contracts have changed the landscape of sports for mid major conferences and their programs.
