Izzo: Big 10 Network Is a PR Nightmare

There are a lot of sports fans of the Big 10 who are disgruntled with the conference’s television network’s inability to get onto local cable networks. Now you can add a few coaches to that mix, most notably Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo.

"I think it has been a PR nightmare," Izzo told the Associated Press. "And, I think it has hurt all of us. ... We have so many things right now that we're trying to fight — the price of tickets, the economy of our state — and then we throw this at them."
