    This is, indeed, good news for the Big XII. About ****ing time we're on something other than a network that sucks the cock of the WAC, er, MWC and another that shows badly-edited movies and Everybody Loves Raymond reruns.

    That makes it a 5pm start, right? Sweet! Nothing like all-day tailgating and a night game at Folsom. :thumbsup:

    This sounds good, I just hope the B12 games don't get stuck on ESPNU or some other third rate ESPN channel while the SEC and B10 games take up the good spots.

    That is exactly whats going to happen. And were going to get less airtime due to the fact that we share the network with the Big 10, Big East, Pac 10, and the ACC. Demographicly, the Big 10 gets the most airtime because their alums are coast to coast.

    ESPNU is a regional broadcast as well just FSRM. Out town buff fans better buy Gameplan now or plan on hanging out at a bar.

    This sucks.

    CU-Florida St. football game set for ESPN

    COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado football team will play at least two nationally televised games at Folsom Field in 2007.

    The Buffs will host Florida State on Sept. 15 in a night game that will start at 8 o’clock and be televised on ESPN, under a deal announced Tuesday by the Big 12 Conference, ESPN and Fox Sports Net.

    The one-year agreement allows ESPN and ESPN2 to televise up to five Big 12 regular-season games through a sub-licensing agreement with FSN. The Colorado-Florida State game is the only one that has been selected at this point.

    Officials will choose one game from the Big 12 lineup Oct. 6 and 20 and Nov. 3 to be televised by ESPN or ESPN2. An additional game on Oct. 13 could also be selected.

    Colorado and Nebraska play annually on national television the Friday after Thanksgiving. The Cornhuskers visit Boulder this season.

    8PM Eastern or Mountain time I wonder? That's a seriously late game either way, but if it's 8P Mountain time, the FSU dudes will be ready for bed around then.

    I believe they would be heading out to the bars around then to soe their oats. Don't see any advantage to that except that the end of the game will be near 2am eastern. So, I'm gonna gues it's 6 Mountain time kickoff for Seminole markets to tune in around 8pm eastern.

    But why would the Boulder Daily Camera give an eastern time start time for a game to be played in Boulder? :confused:

    I think the game will probably be at 8PM mountain. That's about when their early evening games have ended, and it's always seemed to me that there was room for a later game. It's always sucked sitting there at 9 PM, fired up from a great day of football and beer, trying to find a Pac-10 game showing on one of the RSNs, because ESPN and ESPN2 didn't have a game showing, or worse had a WAC matchup....:huh:

    Whats the skinny on ESPNU? I'm pretty sure it isn't offered on DirecTV. Who offers it? Is DTV going to eventually pick it up? How does that work, anyway? I assume that the provider has to pay a certain fee to the network. Is ESPNU asking too much or do they not generate enough revenue? Inquiring minds want to know.

    It is offered on Directv, but I think it is part of a sports package you have to pay extra for. Maybe the foxsports package.

    On DTV the package is 12 bucks a month and that gets you ESPNU, CSTV, all the Fox Sports channels, and a few others. Its not a bad deal.

    Last I checked, ESPNU is not carried on Comcast...not even on the Sports Tier, though maybe they'll pick it up when the season rolls around.

    He's only talking about the five weeks we could potentially be selected by ESPN, not all possible TV games.

    You asking about the OU game? I'd think we'd need a nearly-undefeated record and decent national ranking for the gameday crew to come around.

    ESPN hasn't announced the games that day (according to their website) but both OSU/UW & USC/NU are ABC games.

    Tennessee at Florida
    Boston College at Georgia Tech
    Notre Dame at Michigan
    Iowa at Iowa State
    Arkansas at Alabama
    Florida State at Colorado
    Ohio State at Washington
    USC at Nebraska


    For sure, the crew will be in Seattle or Lincoln that day. Us coming off a 2-10 season and FSU having a down year isn't exactly worthy of national exposure yet - at least over those 2 games.

    I'[d think they'd be in Gainesville for the Vols-Gators game. That's a huge game that early in the season, plus it's at the home of the national champs.

    But it's also probably on CBS. If they can go to Stinkoln and surround themselves with a bunch of red clad inbreds AND drool over USC, my guess is they'll go that way... :huh:
