    Nov. 17, 8 p.m. tip on ESPNU.

    Georgia State should be pretty good. Nice to get another nationally televised game.

    The only reason this game is on tv is Georgia State

    Speaking as a cable-cutter (who I know are the minority), this isn't really great news, because it probably takes away a game that would have been on cyclones.tv.
     
  5. As long as we don't go all Abilene Christian we should be ok.

    Is this the Louisville kid's first comeback game? Could be an angle for tv there.

    Now it looks like even the UMKC game is getting national ESPNU coverage. Not looking good for you JBH.

    Looks like I might not even worry about getting CyclonesTV for the non conference. Looking like most of the games will be available.

    I was a cable cutter last year. I am now back on cable. It does suck though because I only use cable for live sports and HBO. I literally don't watch anything else.

    I wish that the NCAA would come up with something similar to MLB at bat. For about $200/year I get every mlb game live on my iPhone or iPad. If I could get something similar for NCAA and subscribe to HBO GO without having to have HBO, I would definitely cut cable permanently.

    Looks like we're down to 6 games without national coverage. And even then, you have to think there's at least a chance that a game like South Carolina or Drake might get picked up.

    The South Carolina game isn't televised? I thought that the game was going to be played on EPSN.

    And if those games get picked up, I'm ok not watching the 4 cupcake games that are left. Drake and SC are the only two games left that would make me consider Cyclones.tv.

    I don't think anything has been announced and Cyclones.com schedule doesn't show any TV yet (they've already updated Georgia St. and UMKC). Seems like a safe bet to get a late pick up from somebody though, doesn't it?

    Yeah, I'm about ready to pull the plug on cyclones.tv. 1 FB game and now what looks to be just a couple of MBB games (usually in choppy low def) just doesn't make it financially worth while for me anymore. I don't have time to really take advantage of the other content.

    With the demise of the Big 12 OTA network (which broadcast 7 ISU games last year), and now more games moving away from cyclones.tv, I might end up seeing just a handful of MBB games this year (whatever ends up on cyclones.tv and a couple in person). So it goes in the brave new world of college $ports...

    This is what I'm thinking now but about an hour before the first game I can't see.....that could be a different story.

    It's a whole $10 a month. You probably spend more than that on toilet paper each month.

    You're doing it wrong. The games have been in good quality HD the past few seasons.
