    OSU vs. Indiana....get ready to be angry, Buckeye fans

    According to Steve Helwagen over at Bucknuts, the Ohio State vs. Indiana game is being broadcast on ESPN U. Problem with this is, if you have Time Warner cable (like most do) you will not get the game and to further complicate things it doesn't look like the game will be carried by the GamePlan package.

    If this holds true, there is going to be many a Buckeye fan unhappy.

    Same stuff is going on with UC. You won't be able to see the crosstown shootout this year either, it's only on ESPNU. ESPN is doing this on purpose to try and muscle cable companies into pick up the channel.

    That's exactly why they're doing it.

    That stinks. If that is true that will be the first Buckeye football game not televised locally in years. This is going to happen more and more in a few years the Big Ten is starting its own cable channel and they are going to put several games on that so if your cable company doesn't carry that you will miss even more games.

    You could always watch it on the net. ESPN has a broadband suscription service like MLB.TV that will deliver you every NCAA football game on each of their networks for one flat rate fee that covers the season..

    I would reply, but I said everything I could say about that in my other thread. Suffice it to say that I am quite at the way sports fans are being held hostage. I can see purchasing a premium sports package to view out of market teams, but local teams should never be taken off local broadcast tv.

    DishNetwork folks are getting ESPNU all month free on the preview channel. So they are covered.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    HEY!
    Sometimes we score early before getting our posteriors handed to us.
    Last year at Michigan, we scored 7 plays in and then gave up 42 points.

    ESPN continues to ruin sports. Everyday they force the public to view what they want and when they want.

    Fortunately I'm going to be at this game.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
