ESPN apparently has better things to broadcst, like last year's women's soccer.

We have a whole thread on the local TV outlets picking up the non-ESPNU televised games here with channels listed --

What are you talking about? Every game is telecast by ESPNU. Just because you don't get ESPNU doesn't mean the games aren't there.

If you want a blackout, just remember that the NCAA used to mandate that regionals had to be sellouts or none of the games could be on any TV (like the 92 tournament).

I forgot all about that year. Nice going NCAA.:rolleyes:

ESPNU is not TV for the 95% of the population who's life includes more than watching sports. **** ESPN. **** Charter.

I think that's a bit of a stretch. ESPNU is part of my basic service.

I see complaints that the coverage isnít in HD and my Directv Ch. 614 is not HD. I donít give a hoot as long as I can see the games. If I had to depend on the Internet I may as well go stack wood. I remember when the NC$$ had the blackout rule also, it stunk.

Yeah, the 1992 regionals were blacked out. It was the first year off campus and the NCAA was afraid people would stay home and watch rather than attend the games, so they adopted the idiotic blackout policy. Fortunately cooler heads prevailed the next year and the regionals could be picked up by local stations.

The $7 a month or whatever it is for charter is well worth it to order during the hockey season. Every North Dakota home game is on as well as a ton of other games from the CCHA.

It also comes in handy during the NCAA hockey tournament every March. ;)
