    TV question

    This may have been asked, but didn't see. How does cyclones.com have the game to viewed for $9, but Mediacom can not get a feed to watch it on TV??? There are obviously TV cameras there for coverage because cyclones.com has it. I really want to watch it, but huddled up in my little office watching it on a 17 inch monitor does not sound fun. I would rather watch Iowa get spanked on a 60 inch in HD.

    If Pollard can get these problems fixed, he will be worth his weight in gold.

    Part of the problem might be with Fox. They are mad at Mediacom about the Big 10 Network, and they have to give permission to have a game televised (they refused to allow the Kent State game on TV).

    Not quite sure where you're going with this. The ISU-Iowa game wasn't on cyclones.com. The ISU-Toledo game will be, because ISU got permission from the Big 12 to piggyback onto Toledo's webcast -- which is provided by in-house cameras on an in-house video board.

    30,000 people watching a webcast. That shouldn't be choppy at all.

    I didn't know that it was Toledo's webcast. I thought it was being shown on TV in their area. my bad.

    However it is nice that UNI and Drake are on TV.
