And this TV package is HORRIBLE. We have barely been on at all this year.
Barely at all? We've now had six of our first seven games scheduled for TV and are likely to get more. Compare that to last year when we had six TV games all year. The year before that we only had four (not including the home opener on Mediacom Connections).
Our package this year is at least as good as most of the other teams in the conference. Kansas had 5 of their first 6 games televised. Baylor's had 4 of their first 6. Nebraska has had every game televised, but three of them were pay-per-view only.
And as far as the time, beggars can't be choosers. I'm sure if we really didn't want to play at 11:30, Versus could find somebody else who would.
This is great news. Its a lot easier to recruit when your on TV. We should be happy because we are not exactly winning a lot lately....
Baylor - FSC ----------------w
Nebraska - Versus -----------w
So how about the rest of them???
A&M - ESPN2 -----------w
OSU - Fox Sports ------L
CU - Versus ------------L
Mizzou - ABC -----------L
KSTATE - Fox Sports College ----W
6-6 (4-4) with outside shot at bowl (Probably more like 4 wins though)
I could live with my scenerio considering we let the last few games get away. Plus we would be on TV a ton.
If we were on TV for 10+ games a year then I woudn't have a problem. But remember Versus and Fox College Sports has been huge for us. So if we become good then this whole issue goes away. The B10 network actually helped us out here.

Dave, you better show up earlier this time. Anymore, I don't care what time the games are. As long as it's not raining and Scotty33 brings the heater, we'll be fine. Looking forward to another round of Waffles on the grill
Please do tell how you make this wonderful-sounding tailgating breakfast?
