BTN to celebrate Indiana Day on June 11


To deal with the fact that it has exactly zero sporting events left to televise, the Big Ten Network has decided to take one day for each conference school and celebrate the sports teams of said school by broadcasting 24-hours of programming that centers on said teams.

Indiana Day is next Wednesday, June 11.

We had all wondered what the BTN would do to fill its summer hours, and an idea along these lines is fairly obvious. But you have to wonder about the execution. As you’ll see in the broadcast schedule I’ve pasted below, there’s plenty to see. Maybe if you’re the truest of true Hoosiers, you’ll carve out 24 hours and do nothing but watch television. But probably not. Better to just set the DVR and spread the viewing out over the summer.

(Doug has already mentioned his excitement for this event and is considering having a few of our blog regulars — you know, 50 or 75 of you — over to his house to enjoy the day. I’ll get back to you with more details on this.)
