    Nebraska on TV

    So far this year, Nebraska has had 0 non-PPV games on TV.

    We have had 2.

    I find that somewhat interesting.

    At the end of our non-conference schedules, we will have been on 3 times, and Nebraska once.

    That being said, Nebraska has been available on TV every week, if you're willing to pay 30 bucks a game for PPV.

    On another note, Big XII schools play this week on Wed (K-State @ Louisville), Thurs (WV @ Colorado), and Fri (Baylor @ Conneticut). Should be some interesting games. And the plus side, we only have to go 3 days without Big XII football!

    My friend (husker fan) paid $40 last night to watch them. I told him he could have got the applebees pack and seen them for $79 in a few weeks.

    What's the deal with Baylor and Friday night games? I know that we've avoided them to keep from stepping on high school football games, but this is Baylor's second such game in two weeks?

    Re: Nebraska on TV

    This week is a road game, just like ISU @ Army in 2005 -- for the TV money.

    Last week was moved up because of the hurricane.

    My guess is TV and money.

    Sept 12th was due to Ike though...

    Re: Nebraska on TV

    I bought the season opener PPV against Western Michigan, but was content to listen to the last 2 games.

    I'll be the first to admit that following last year's disaster, Nebraska just isn't a "sexy" TV pick right now.

    We are also benefiting by playing 2 road games against teams in conferences with their own networks. If we were playing UNLV at the Jack this year, I'm pretty sure that game would not be on TV.

    or, I am not sure why we don't wish we had as die hard fans?

    Totally agree.
    It's one of the perks of playing non-conference games on the road against reasonable opponents.

    We also benefited by playing on Thursday to open the season. Take away the Thursday game, and the two road games and we would probably have been on TV maybe once (ISU-Iowa).

    Re: Nebraska on TV

    If you want something to compare our program to, try USC, as in South Carolina, which for some God-unknown reason has has all three of their games on national TV--and I don't mean the BTN, MTN, FCSN(?) or whatever squirrely little place you care to dredge it up from the corners of cable/satellite world.

    ESPN is in love with Steve Spurrier. At first, I thought it was strange, too. But, really, we should not be surprised.

    Another reason to dislike Steve Pederson (former Nebraska AD). He scheduled horrible non-conference opponents that make the games unattractive (especially when Nebraska is down) to national or regional media.

    Osborne has already done much better in scheduling non-conference opponents. Adding a home & home with Miami and a 3 game series with Fresno State (2 in Lincoln, 1 in Fresno)
