    DirecTV Channel Question

    Do you need to have the sports pack to get FCS for the game today? The channel isn't whited out like it is blocked, but I dont want to get caught at 2 PM with my pants down.

    I think it's $9.95, but it's worth it.

    I don't think you need the sports pack. If you did, it would tell you to call to order it. If you end up needing it, go online and add it at 2. It pops up in seconds.

    I think a couple of us brought it up during the UNLV game thread. I know I was pretty excited when I got it going.

    So, if you want it, it'll be there for you. Their service is incredible in that regard.

    Yes. I got it at the end of last year figuring they would probably be playing on that channel this year. So it's all good.

    Re: DirecTV Channel Question

    i don't have the sports package either, but the only other game this year on directv, iowa, came in just fine on all the channels it was scheduled on even though i don't subscribe to them. i think the game will come in without the package, but don't take my word for it...'the reading rainbow'.

    Been there. A lot.
    In Chizik's first year, which was our first year with season tickets, it seemed like we kept having 11:00 starts, and my employer kept working my shift on an overtime shift for Friday night/Saturday morning. I'd take a power nap until like 9 AM, and then start getting fired up.

    It's tough. I feel for ya.

    Definitely not easy but it's gameday. Football has to come first! Afraid to take a powernap fearing I'd sleep right through it.

    Johnnys? Honestly every bar in DSM will have it. Iowa plays at 11, and then right when it ends, ISU will play.
