    Stuck in Iowa City

    I am stuck at grad. school in Iowa City and am really wanting to catch as many Iowa State basketball games on TV as possible. Anyone have any suggestions? I have Mediacom...do alot of the games play on ESPN 360? Would Mediacom's sports pack (FSN regionals and ESPNU) help much?

    Thanks in advance.

    When I was living closer to IC a couple years ago, the Fox station in CR had a lot of the Cyclone BB games on.

    I used 360 to catch most Cyclone games last year. Many of the early-season games were not available on 360, but almost all of the big games and conference games were broadcasted.

    Your in good shape with mediacom. They have a majority of our non-conference games. You tack on a few on espnu, espn and espn 2 and you should be in decent shape.

    Here is the tv schedule so far.

    Not sure if Mediacom has ESPN Full Court or not, but that is the way to go, at least for catching all the conference games. You can get the half-season package that starts in January for half the price of the whole package (I think it's like $75?). It is the best option for out-of-staters, at least.

    Probably will also be a few non-con games on CloneZone.

    What does Big 12 mean on there? Does the Big 12 have a television network?

    I'm assuming the Big 12 "network" that plays on like Saturday's. I think it's your local Fox station that runs them. It always makes me cringe when they keep calling themselves the Big 12 network...when really they are just a pre/post game show on Fox.

    Anytime you see big12, you can assume it also is part of ESPN plus, which means these games will be on 360 98% of the time.
