    It seems as if the picture is zoomed in, but if you hit 'guide' the picture looks normal, although quite a bit smaller, in the top right corner. Does anybody else have issues with this?

    You talking about the poor quality of the broadcast in general? Because that's a known issue whenever our games are on FCS.

    FCS needs to stream from an iPhone or something, quality would improve.

    I think they use FCS games to train their newbees before moving up to bigger games on better channels.

    It's horrible.

    Replays look like they are coming from a different era.

    The turf is a different color from each camara angle.

    This is FCS-LD. Blury is the non-operative word.

    Bush league.

    Oh yeah, Yogi Roth is a doofus.

    I felt like I was watching the game from the nosebleeds while I was blackout drunk.

    Not that I have any experience with that or anything...

    worst picture quality in the modern era.....From my high-tech media room, it seemed that I was watching Purdue vs Notre Dame.
