Nice warm-up win. I have a very serious problem with that Big Ten Basketball preview show and Jim Jackson. Question, is this the Big Ten, with 12 teams, or is this the Big 4? When I tuned in to watch the program I was expecting to get a small preview of each team. Instead, I heard a lot about Indian, Michigan State, Michigan, and Ohio State. What’s up with that? Either you give all twelve equal time or you shouldn’t have a preview show. The only mention Minnesota got was that Jim thinks they will finish 5th and he said a couple things about Buggs. That was pitiful! It’s a cryin’ shame that we get more about all the Big Ten schools from other networks and get practically nothing from our own network. Do us all a favor, If those four schools are all you are going to talk about why not call the show ” the Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State preview show”. Very disappointed in this networks lack of knowledge and support of all 12 schools in this conference!!!!!!!
