Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka To Take Fan Questions On Bleacher Report

This press conference certainly has potential to be very interesting for a number of reasons.

With the fifth edition of The Match set to take place next Friday, Bleacher Report will be hosting a press conference ahead of the event on the same day.

Bleacher Report announced today that they’ll provide a streaming pre-event show on their app, beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET. A Pre-event show is not unusual for the event, as they did one in July for the last edition of The Match.

This time is set to be a little different, as this will be a press conference with questions from fans and special guests to ask both Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka whatever they’d like.

Here is some information about the format of the press conference from a press release coming from Bleacher Report:

In the days leading up to the event, B/R will prompt fans across its social channels to submit questions for the chance to have them read live during the press conference. Real-time questions submitted in the B/R app will also be raised during the livestream to take advantage of unexpected moments and answers. Fans whose questions are chosen will win exclusive custom hoodies and the chance for cash prizes.

This press conference certainly has the potential to be very interesting for a number of reasons. First, it is clear that these two golfers really don’t like each other, it doesn’t seem forced to me at all. Secondly is with the fans’ interaction with asking questions, it could be very funny and has the potential to go off the rails.

Fans have been notorious in trolling both Bryson and Brooks during tournaments, so an actual press conference where they are in a setting to answer questions could be pure comedy.

NBC Pushing for Big Ten/NFL Primetime Pairing in Media Rights Deal

“The Big Ten would have exposure in every TV home,” said one source to Front Office Sports. “It would also be a smart idea to follow the model of the most successful sports league in America.”

Big Ten media rights negotiations are getting closer to being completed. The results could mean a minimum of $1.25 billion annual distribution for the conference’s soon-to-be sixteen members. One of the bidders in the process, NBC, has an interesting idea to make the Big Ten the “NFL of college football conferences.”

NBC has reportedly pushed the idea of combining Big Ten broadcasts with its existing Notre Dame coverage and would feature the Big Ten in its primetime window. With CBS, ESPN/ABC also bidding on coverage packages, such a series of deals would make the Big Ten the only college football conference that would be seen across all of the American broadcast networks. Something only few entities have done, like the NFL.

NBC is also pushing the allure of having primetime Big Ten football on Saturday night and primetime coverage of Sunday’s only NFL evening game with Sunday Night Football.

“The Big Ten would have exposure in every TV home,” said one source to Front Office Sports. “It would also be a smart idea to follow the model of the most successful sports league in America.” 

The Big Ten’s current media rights deals expire after the 2023 season.
