"Your game film in advance"
The Cougars travel to Waco, Texas tonight for thier first major test of the year against Baylor.
The problem is ESPN is pulling the NFL Network card on us.
Tonights game, and Wednesday's potentially huge match-up between The Cougs and #19 Gonzaga, will be broadcast in ESPNU.
Thats right ESPNU, a channel that isn't carried by most major cable providers (ie Comcast), therefore, most folks wont have the option of watching these games at all.
It's all a ploy to try and strong arm said providers into adding the channel by showing more than just Lacrosse or whatever other mundance college sports they usually carry.
It's puzzling to me that a network who has bashed the NFL for thier exclusive games would effectively pull the same lame trick on us. (And this isn't just sour grapes, some major games throughout the country are getting the same treatment.)
And the shittiest part of it is, I'm totally gonna drink the Kool-Aid! I will be running out to find a bar with "The U" on Wednesday to watch the Cougs crush the Zag's. So in effect I am helping the problem.
DAMN YOU ESPN, PUT THE GOOD GAMES ON THE REAL CHANNEL AND SHOW SOME STINKING BOWLING TOURNAMENT ON THE U!
