These are actually two pretty good games...Personally I'm disappointed I won't be able to watch them.

If you're ranking Jackson St-Miss Valley St, Dartmouth-Yale, Prairie View A&M-Alabama St and UC Irvine-TX arlington over Cal-Oregon, well...that's your opinion.

Then again, that's the beauty of having choices...games don't have to be ranked...you can watch one thing and I can watch another!

The more games on TV the better for all of us!

This is not always true.

For example, tomorrow alone there are four games available on the FCS channels but not on any other RSN:
8:30 PM Texas A&M Corpus Christi - Oral Roberts, FCS Central

Sandra


Saturday Oral Roberts home games are on Golden Eagle Broadcasting, which is channel 363 on Directv (and included in all packages)

This Saturday's ORU game is too. Weekday games are usually on delay until midnight

Thanks for the heads up! Is channel 363 in HD? The FCS games can be difficult to watch in blurry SD...

I put down just the games ESPN had listed @6pm slot. So even just at that slot even if I had 4 TVs hooked up in my living room the pac12 game wouldn't be on them.

no. The channel is only in SD (there is no HD feed of said channel).
Even the OTA version (KGEB 53) in Tulsa is only in SD

Too bad...the FCS channels in particular look like you're watching the game thru a glass of water!

And that's the beauty of this whole thing...one person's game preference is different than the next person's.

You have differend games that matter to you than I do, and the next person could have completely different preferences than both of us! It's completely subjective.

I would not want my preferences to be the only thing everyone is allowed to watch, and I'm sure feel the same way.

That's true for just about everything on TV. If you are satisfied with illegal streaming of content, why even bother having any form of satellite or cable?

Yes and for that reason I choose DirecTV because they have MORE games every week. And soon golf will have the masters and guess who gets the BEST coverage oh ya DirecTV.

I don't know, I think you might actually have more college basketball games that matter, with other than DirecTV. Looking at the next 3 weeks, I count 15 games on the P12N that will involve at least one team currently projected to be in the tournament, or considered a bubble team. As many as 9 of those games could involve two such teams. Yes there is a ton of good college basketball on DirecTV, more than enough for most fans, but I don't think it is king anymore as far as college sports go.

So what you are saying I will miss a game that will give a team a what (6 seed) and maybe another team that gets (12 seed) yes I am missing ALOT.
My parents have dish and I know for a fact that I get more than they do sports wise.
Dish network is for people that are OLD or kids still living with there parents ie the old people.

Personally, I find at this time of year, I like the storyline of the bubble teams far more than teams jockeying for seeding. Of the 25-30 teams fighting for the last 12 or so spots, 6 of those teams are from the PAC-12. So this year at least, much of that fight is going to occur on the P12N and not on DirecTV.

Have your parents get the Dish Multi-Sport pack and then compare. DirecTV is still the king of professional sports, but Dish has surpassed them in college sports.

Who are you claiming didn't get the race?
