This is what makes me mad the most. Iowa fans think its about being a Hawkeye State. By the way anyone who calls in to talk radio and says this phrase "This is a Hawkeye State and it will always be a Hawkeye state" is a DB. This is about getting the better game on. Illinois is a rivarly and they are both decent record teams. ISU sucks and they are playing a south team. Just find a way to get it on and I am happy.
If ISU was 6-1 then this is different
EDIT: No offense Jon.

Marty and Miller have been talking about this all show. November 1st, both of these games will be regional telecasts. Just announced the Iowa-Illinois game will be broadcast, while trying to get ISU-OSU on a different channel, like 5.2 or something.
This situation is precisely what HD OTA (over-the-air) is suited to handle. ESPN/ABC is 720p. It is theoretically (and techncially) quite possible for WOI to simultaneously broadcast two 720p channels OTA.
WOI has the opportunity here to be one of the first TV stations in the US to actually exploit the benefits of HD technology for useful purposes...

"Don't worry Boss...they can't do nothin' 'til they're through sparklin'..."
ISU-OSU will be on 5.2 (yes, they do have 5.2, right now it's just repeating the OTA feed) and it MAY be on Mediacom
I'm not worried here in Central IA. The ISU game WILL be on in someway, but if I lived the eastern part of the state, I'd start calling and emailing KCRG and ask them what are their plans, because they will "conveniently" forget all about the ISU game!!!!
