Is The B1G Network Creeping Into Longhorn Network Territory?

Judging by the amount of hours each school is being shown, it is pretty clear which schools the B1G Network favors.

A quick breakdown of school and how many hours of programming they have in the month of June, in order from least to greatest:
Nebraska 27.5 hours
Minnesota 32 hours
Northwestern 40.5 hours
Penn State 47.5 hours
Purdue 49 hours
Illinois 73.5 hours
Iowa 82.5 hours
Indiana 85 hours
Michigan 106 hours
Michigan St 108 hours
Wisconsin 127.5 hours
Ohio State 153 hours

I get Nebraska being so low since they are new to the conference, but Minnesota has 1/5 of the programming Ohio State does. And it is pretty clear the Gophers, along with Northwestern, Penn State, and Purdue just aren't that popular with the B1G Network.

So if the SEC wants to start a network like is rumored, how much can Mississippi State or Vanderbilt or Ole Miss or Arkansas really benefit from this? They would seemingly fall further behind to Alabama, LSU, and Florida in the race.
