    Jack Trice - Football Scores Ticker

    So has anyone else noticed that there is a noticeable absence of Big 12 scores on the score ticker at Jack Trice. In fact other then showing only in progress top 25 scores they actually list Big 10 games separately in their own category. I'm guessing that we subscribe to some service but why the separate Big 10 scores, last time I checked we were still in the Big 12.

    Yep . . I had a friend up from the SEC (Georgia man) . . and he was perplexed by this issue as was I.

    It shouldn't be that difficult to report/update scores from across the country.

    Not to mention seeing the scores of the Alababma, Akransas, and other incredible typos

    It also about 30 minutes behind on scores. In the age of smart phones, they could probably ditch the whole thing.

    They always used to throw Maine's score up there too, for whatever reason.

    Yep, I just check my phone during breaks. The ticker is easily a quarter behind.

    Re: Jack Trice - Football Scores Ticker

    Agree, What they're doing now is basically worthless/embarrassing.

    They just keep showing about 5 or 6 of the same game scores over and over.

    They should do top 25 even if the actual games are over.

    Repeat the Big xii scores the most.

    Finally, they should cover all of Saturday's BCS scores.

    It's not like the Cyclone game is only 15 minutes long. There's plenty of time to get all the scores rolled through repeated in a 3-4 hour timeframe.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    On the call-in show tonight a gal brought up this issue to Jaime Pollard.

    Jaime said he was unaware of any changes from prior years, but said he will look into it.

    I was a bit upset when they stopped putting up Bethune-Cookman scores and Southeastern Louisiana scores. C'mon man, get with the program!

    Re: Jack Trice - Football Scores Ticker

    I am suprised they don't have the top 25 widget style or something. Getting updates in the same as a smartphone/computer.. I wonder how they are doing it now? with it being behind and not spelled correctly I would imagine its a manual process?

    I think that the Bethune-cookman might have been a thankyou for coming to take their *** whooping in BB. I think we often put up some fun scores of teams that we have a "pay to pound" realationship with. I know sometimes after we beat up on somebody like that it's fun to take a peek and see how they do as a program.

    The infamous maine thing? I have no idea, but suspect that someone that works on the board software must have gone to maine or something.

    Re: Jack Trice - Football Scores Ticker

    It is nice they stopped showing scores of totally random games. But I notice that when we have a 6pm kickoff they just show "scores" of games that haven't started yet. Why not show the scores of games that took place earlier in the day that are now over instead of just showing Team A vs Team B @ 7pm.
