    Williams Blog: NIU opener deserves TV attention

    I understand why this game hasn't been picked up yet.

    But I really think that it is going to be extremely competitive.

    Does FSN broadcast on Thursday nights? This will be on Mediacom for sure.

    FCS might pick this up later in the summer. Surprised that ESPN's agreement with the MAC is not giving this some legs.

    Well, at least Towson and Indiana will be on. I'll have to set the DVR for that dynamic matchup.

    What does it say about the Big 12 if their only representative on Thursday night can't get on TV? Or does it not matter, because "it's just Iowa State" ?

    I like how in defending why ISU and northern illinois should be on tv, you argue that no one cares about minnesota or middle tennessee state... maybe just a little bias

    Did you read the blog?

    I fully admitted to that. I have nothing to hide there.

    I'd love to see this get some TV time but I'm not so sure its a game we'll want the country keeping an eye on, we've got our work cut out for us against NIU.

    Does anyone know if mediacom has FCS or Verses in high definition?

    Mediacomm does not have FCS or Versus in HD.

    Best case scenario: It will be picked up by FCS Central as the SDSU game was two years ago. The connections channell might be able to get it, but I believe a special waiver is required from the conference (or, at least one was a couple years back) and if that is the case the game wouldn't be shown outside the Iowa border.

    I would think this game has more intrigue than UofM and MTSU but I've been wrong before.

    i was trying to point out the irony in the point, not defending those two schools.

    nationally there's not a lot of interest in any of the 4 schools
