    D* is blacking out the Illinois vs Ohio State game on KDNL 30 in St. Louis even though it is being broadcast OTA. Thankfully I have an antenna.

    What do you have on 210-1? How about 206?

    So they are blacking out your local channel? Try 206. That's the channel the Illinois/OSU game is on if you aren't seeing it on your local ABC station. Also, check to see if you are getting the Okie State/Texas game on 210(-1).

    One of the better listings you can get is http://lsufootball.net/tvschedule.htm. The ESPN blackout maps are good as well but they don't come out until usually the day before.

    Sorry guys, it was my mistake. But now that I've watched most of the game I wish it wouldv'e been blacked out.

    It completely sucked and not only because the Illini lost. The game itself was unbelievably boring. No offense by either team and the coaching was atrocious, especially by Zook. :mad:

    Indeed, Earl. This Illinois alum was disgusted by Illinois's offense suddenly being AWOL.

    If anyone was unconvinced before this game that Zook is not a very good head coach, this game should have sealed that description. Play calling was awful, and the decision to NOT use any of your THREE timeouts with a minute left to go in the half, when you could at least TRY to grab a field goal before time expires? Bizarre.

    Things could be worse, you could be a Purdue fan. You'll get a chance to ruin our homecoming next weekend and PUs coach makes Zook look like a genius.

    True. Run clock. Run clock. Call timeout at last second. Throw interception. Halftime!

    Was at the game. Zook's time management handling in the 4th quarter was atrocious. I think the wind was a big factor in the passing game. 20 to 30 mph gusts were coming from all directions. That's why Tattoo U only completed 1 pass and Scheelhause had alot of floaters. Went to the basketball scrimmage before the game. I like our new freshmen bigs. The other new freshmen seemed a step behind the whole scrimmage, like they had just rolled out of bed. Now I'm waiting for the 360 degree fancam pic to come online that they took at halftime. I'm the one in sec 303...holding up a beer.

    When I was setting up games to record, ESPN showed it would either have the Illinois game or the Texas game. I checked my local ABC channel and they were showing the Illinois game, so I set ESPN to record the Texas game. I go to watch it and it says it's showing the Illinois game and it's blacked out. I came here to see what the deal was and find the Texas game is on 210-1. I set it to record, but then noticed the $ in the list and they are calling it a PPV game. So far, I don't see a charge for on on my acct and hope not to.
