How do you think it should be set up and/or run? If there is a better idea, let's hear it.

Not much we can do about it after the NCAA lost an antitrust action in the Supreme Court in 1984 and schools/conferences were allowed to seek and cut their own deals. It's all the highest bidder now and The Mouse simply has more money. If the other networks want more bowl games, outbid The Mouse. Capitalism 101.

My guess is that the OP wanted a broader TV distribution of the games. As I said earlier, that's nothing the NCAA can control.

Yep, looks like I won't be watching much college ball. I only really care any about a couple of games: the A&M game, and the Florida/Auburn game. Don't have satellite. Don't have cable. ESPN won't let me pay them to watch an individual game streamed. Oh well, I have way to much to do and better ways to spend my time anyway.
