    Versus Network Info

    This was in the National Football Foundation Newsletter that I get....

    VERSUS will televise 18 college football games nationally in 2007 with its opening doubleheader on Sept. 1 with Virginia at Wyoming and Arizona at Brigham Young. The season-ender is Dec. 1 with California at Stanford on the 25th anniversary of "The Play." In between, VERSUS will air several Big 12, Pacific-10, and Mountain West Conference games with no less than a 6-day advance telecast notification...

    Something tells me they're trying to become the next ESPN.

    Re: Versus Network Info

    Something tells me that I love this network. They are going after everything very aggresively. They have WEC (world Extreme Cagefighting) on all the time. They have the NHL. They are having a bunch of college football games. If they can keep there heads above water. They will be a major player in sports in no time.

    Re: Versus Network Info

    They're going to need to get some better/bigger games than what's listed. Cal vs. Stanford isn't bad, yet it's not a game to hang your hat on.

    It would be nice to get another network where games can be found - gives us a chance at better and more frequent exposure. Yet that network will need to make money. It's early for them and they won't be doing much of that right away - especially seeing that lineup.

    They'll just need to start doing at sooner than later.

    Re: Versus Network Info

    This network has been coming along nicely. I find myself watching it more and more over the last couple months. They had a ton of hockey, cagefighting, etc, etc. Add football to the mix and in a few years I think they could really be something.

    Versus was a serious contender for the package of NFL games that went to The NFL Network.

    Versus used to be the OLN network (Outdoor Life Network). I think they show like lumberjack competitions from Canada.

    Hey... ESPN does that too, or have you forgotten the Great Outdoor Games?

    Re: Versus Network Info

    ESPN also shows high rated programs like arm wrestling, eating contests, and scrabble.

    Versus looks good to me, so far. I always enjoyed the TBS and FSN games, but this will fill the gap.
