    I'm not sure of all the specifics on the new TV deal. I was at the game, but I watched the FCS highlights on CloneZone, and it looked like it was filmed with a toaster.

    FCS is part of new TV deal unfortunately.

    FCs certainly didn't spend any money on the announcing crew. Sounded like J-Hawks all the way, except when the outcome was in question.

    Yeah, you always know when it is a low budget production when they don't have a field level camera on one of those carts. I did notice on replays in the stadium occasionally the cameras would be moving due to the wind.

    I hope they replace FCS completely with more games on FX.

    I'll never complain about being on TV. Correct me if i'm wrong but aren't 10-11 of our 12 games on TV this year? Better than years past. Clearly we all know, not all stations are created equal.

    It was pretty crappy but I live in Colorado and I got to watch the game so I am not really all that upset.

    I'd rather watch on CloneZone than FCS.

    I am glad they are on at all. Kansas and ISU on TV? We are lucky that game was on at all. Amazing what people ***** about, not that long ago and you couldn't see but one or two games a year.

    I remember when the Iowa game was the only game that would be on TV every single year. That's why a lot of us grew to love Pete Taylor.

    It's brutal watching football in Standard Def anymore. I would hope that when the Big12 negotiates their new contracts in the next few years, that one of the requirements is for Fox to upgrade their equipment. There's no excuse for any BCS team to ever have a game broadcast in standard def.

    FCS is barely even standard def.

    This. +1

    I like the current guys, but I still miss Pete calling the games.
