After I could not the the Texas Tech and Texas games I did the standard CF thing and emailed JP. (Before the EICC game I got the 200+ channel package from DISH so I could get that game on EspnU) He replied quickly (on MLK holiday even) that ESPN subleases some Big 12 games and that is what happens sometimes. He also said that it "appears" that ESPN will not do this subleasing next year. That will be sweet for next year but am still ****** that I also could not get the KSU game today for the same reason apparently. My question is Are there other parts of the country in the same boat - can't get the games that are listed as being on the "Big 12 Network". it especially grinds my gears that these games aren't available on Cyclones.TV either. How about Direct TV customers in this (Phoenix) area - are you blacked out too? It would cost me a small fortune to switch now just two months into my Dish deal but I would think about it.
