In response to Gene Smith's open letter to OSU fans urging them to disconnect Time Warner in favor of other cable or satellite providers carrying the Big Ten Network, several local news outlets are reporting Time Warner has offered to show games covered by the Big Ten Network live and charge customers on a per game basis.

Time Warner Cable Executive Vice President Terry O' Connell's letter further indicated they'll let Smith set the price for the games and will allow OSU to keep all the revenue.

Of course, none of this is really up to Smith so he has forwarded the letter to the Big Ten Network honchos for review. Stay tuned...
