    ESPN2's "Whip-around" coverage is a joke!

    I turned over to this network about 5 times Saturday night and not once were they covering ISU. What happened to the days when they covered the whole game?

    Another reason to invest in Full Court. They had the games on SD and HD channels on Full Court.

    They showed the end of the game. They were at the end of the whip.

    Here in SD, the entire SDSU vs South Carolina game was broadcast. I am guessing that the entire Nebraska game will be given preference over ISU tonight. Thankful that ESPN3 is an option, even though the players are blurry at times.

    They are free on full court with DirecTV. I don't subscribe to Full Court, but I still get the whole game in the 700s. Don't watch ESPN2 or you won't see the game.

    Sounds like you and I had the same experience.

    I got the ISU-Gonzaga game on DirecTV 732-1 and the Iowa women's game last night was on 730-1

    You can get all four games on DirecTV on channels 730 thru 733 if you pay $16. You will get the ISU game on one of those channels tonite for free and they will show what they feel is the most wanted game on 209.

    Those days never happened. Less than half of the tournament was televised until 2003, when whip-around started. Since then, the first two rounds have been entirely whip-around (with local market protection). ESPN and satellite providers have offered out-of-market games on alternate channels for several years.

    Exactly. Everyone in Iowa will get the ISU game on ESPN2 -- whether it's via cable on the regular channel, or via satellite on the alternate channel.

    When I tried to watch Saturday's game on channel 730 (?), the only one showing was aTm and I'm in central IA.

    My guess tonight on ESPN2 you will have:

    First game - UConn vs. Vandy
    Second game - TAMU and Nebby

    We may get some play on ESPN2 since we are in the last game, or if one of the other games is a blowout.
