    Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    ESPN - Texas-Texas A&M game returns to traditional Thanksgiving night date - College Football

    More importantly than the headline:
    The news comes on the heels of Monday's announcement that ESPN will continue to televise regular-season Big 12 games through a new two-year agreement with Fox Sports Net.
    The question is... Will we make it on ESPN this season?

    Don't care as long as we are on TV somewhere.

    Re: Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    Wait, does this mean our games would be on ESPN or FSN? What is the nature of the "agreement"?

    Re: Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    Depends on how good we are...
    I would say we are good for the following. (Best Guess)


    @ Iowa will be on the BTN of course.
    UNLV might be on the Moutain West Network

    ABC, Versus, ESPN, ESPN2, Fox Sports best chances for TV
    Kansas
    Mizzou
    Texas A&M
    Nebraska

    Toss Ups
    @K-State
    @Baylor
    @OKie State
    @CU

    NO TV Games IMO
    Kent State
    South Dakota state (might get Mediacom since thurs game)

    The problem is when our games land with all the other games on the conference schedule that are "better games". With all these channels there shouldn't be a game that is not on though.
    Here are 6 channels that would have the chance to play our games. 6 x 2 = 12. That is with one station doing just one game out of the big12.
    ABC
    Versus
    Fox Sports Midwest
    Espn
    Espn 2
    Espn U

    No reason for not being on TV.

    Re: Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    It means that FSN will sublicense some games to ESPN, like in 2007. Apparently that number will be 7 in 2008.

    Re: Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    So your guess is that once again the home games will be televised and we're screwed on the away games. What a surprise.

    Re: Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    It probably won't get us on ESPN, but like last year it will get us some games on FSN.


    Step 1: Cut a hole in the box.

    At the Kansas game last year, the guy i sat next to instructed me about going to K-state games.....apparently it only has a 2 lane highway going in there, so plan to arrive very, very early that day.

    Yeah it's about 10 miles off the interstate. Going to Manhattan will make you love Ames that much more.

    Re: Fox Sports Net/ESPN TV Agreement

    Why is it so hard to understand if we only win 2 conference games in a year, let alone 3 games all year that we will not be chosen to be shown on TV?

    Basically substitute ESPN/ESPN2 for TBS from a couple of years ago and you'll pick up what's being laid down.
