This is for FB and BB. Through 2022-23 season. Up to 12 FB and 12 BB games a year. Coverage is nice but no idea what the money arrangements are. They do have a wide reach so more fans can see the MAC which in general is good.

    I assume the money is zero because it is a sub license from ESPN. ESPN might get something to offset the $10M per year they pay us

    Personally I hate this because it means I need to shell out more money to get the CBS Sports Network through my current streaming packages.

    Generally, it is a bonus for MAC fans.  These are games which ESPN family of networks were not going to cover, or at least not on a national TV network ( maybe on ESPN3 or ESPN+?).  So I don't really feel like Bash or TC are losing some games that would have been on ESPN 2 or ESPNU.  I would think maybe these games would still be available on either ESPN3 or ESPN+?

    CBS Sports Network is a really good network. They televise lots of games including MWC/AAC and U.S. Service Academy games. It also is on many cable networks sports packages. I think this is a nice add and agree.

    They also give us really good announcers. When we played CMU in 2016 they gave us the A Team that didn't spend half the time talking CFP playoffs and games that weekend.
