Was the webcast annoucement a mirage?
I have not seen or heard anything regarding the TV webcast on foxsports.com, and presume that it won't be happening. If anyone has information for us out-of-staters, it'd be appreciated!
I was wondering the same thing. I live in Michigan and really want to see the game but I have not found anything on FoxSports.com. Any help??
I saw somewhere where Fox sports was doing something, however can't find it. Live in New Mexico and as always we out of state ISU Alum and Fans get the short end of the S_ _ t stick. I and my Sirius radio will again have to do. Jamie P is going to have to address the out of state alum sooner than later if the program he has laid out is going to happen. I live in a Des Moines sized market with the University of New Mexico across town. They have TV state wide for every Lobo game, home and away. Makes you wonder out loud.
I am hoping we just go to msn.foxsports.com/cfb on the day of the game and its there. Cross our fingers. Another link possible is this one, as this is where fox sports has lots of their video.
I could be way out to lunch as I have no idea like everyone else. Like I said I am hoping a link just magically appears on GameDay.
Paul has posted a news release on CR ( can't find it on cyclones.com ) that says there will be no Foxsports.com webcast after all.
Edit: here it is...

I am dismayed and frankly disgusted at the way that Fox Sports has changed their mind at the last minute concerning the Iowa State - Toledo Football webcast. As our Athletic Director announced two weeks ago, those of us who are fans of Iowa State but live out of state were looking forward to "watching" the game via the web here on foxsports. For those of us not in Iowa to watch the game live, or at least on the local channels, this WAS our chance to see the game!
Sadly, someone decides to pull the plug on this. What is this IMBECILE thinking? Two bowl teams from last year, one playing in the Big 12 and battling once again for a Big 12 North Championship, and the other in the top half of the MAC conference with a bowl victory last year! And you still decide to pull the plug?
In an age full of people seemingly rescinding their offers of cooperation at the drop of the hat, I would have hoped that Fox and Fox Sports would be above that. Sadly, I am sorely mistaken.
I do hope you listen to the barrage of emails that will be coming into you today and tomorrow from a wide variety of Iowa State Fans. After all, Iowa isn't just a lowly midwestern state where you can mess with its people and negate offers in a whimsical moment; we have two D-I football programs that play in the Big 12 and Big 10 (11), both of which have battled for bowl games and conference championships in the past three years. Take us seriously and listen to what we say; after all, all of the Presidential candidates listen and pay attention to us come caucus time, don't they?
Was it Fox Sports???or something at ISU ??? The teaser in these threads and by ISU has ISU alum and fans out of state really ****** off. Come on, do you really think the "next big step" will happen without the Alum out of state?????
Jamie is doing some great marketing, the billboard in south Cedar Rapids( my former home town) for example. But Great Marketing is national and that means TV via web or satillite for alum that donate and recuriting to the next level. Marketing in Iowa and Mediacom for Iowa is OK, but always remember, Iowa is a great place to be from.
Enough, let me go get my Siruis radio out of car and get set up for AUDIO!
Why is the game on Thursday night anyway?If you don't have a t.v. contract for that game keep it on Saturday.
It was never, ever moved to Thursday for TV reasons.

There have been several Thursday night openers that I can think of. Thank goodness for Sirius!! I will also be one of the out-of-staters listening to the flippin radio tomorrow night.
Just got this in an email: this is from the Gamewatch coordinators. Satellite coordinates
IA6 c-band transponder 17 downlink 4040 vertical
Just curious for those sirius folks...do you get the john/eric broadcast or is it another crew?
