Hahaha. Great post. Wonder if the chili recommendation will be blogged.
For those of you that want to watch pac-12 football, a reminder: byu at wsu on espn now!
Also, I completely forgot usc is coming to meadowlands next Saturday. I may end up watching/scouting Matt Barkley live
Mean while ASU is playing NAU the game I would be watching. Looks like my college viewing and interest will die. My wife will love it..LOL ...No college football.
Too bad they could not hold on for the entire game. There is nothing I like better (in football, anyway) than to see one of Coach Superior's teams get upset by Vandy, Kentucky, Mississippi State, or a non-conference opponent. Kentucky pulled it off in 2010, but it does not happen very often.
Utah 41, Northern Colorado 0
Arizona State 63, Northern Arizona 6
These are the games everyone was demanding huh? :lol:
Well, I'm sure if you are a fan of Utah or Arizona State, you would like to have watched.
I'm a huge Ohio State fan, and I'll be watching tomorrow's game against Miami Ohio regardless of whether it's close or not.
No, I would've quit watching if my team was up 42-0 at the half like ASU was. I knew these would be lopsided and couldn't understand the "huge demand" for these type of games.
I love my alum, but won't even watch past the first half tomorrow night verse LSU. I wouldn't even care to miss it because we'll be blown out.
To each his own...her too!
When my team only plays 12 times per year I try to make the most of it...YMMV.
That's me too. I enjoy watching the full game especially early in the season when you're not sure what they have talent wise.
Well, PAC12 deal isn't happening this week. Next week? Who knows....
I am inclined to believe the statement made on the blog earlier (PAC12 National on 626 and feeds for live sports events) is indeed the "take it or leave it" deal DirecTV has put on the table.... so the ball is in the court of PAC12.
And I do believe this is a fair deal. That way, carriage of pac 12 = carriage of big ten. And who knows, maybe Directv's contract with big ten has some sort of "most favored nation" clause that prevents it from launching other conf networks with more coverage, if you will, than Big Ten.
That seems like a reasonable position, but even if DirecTV's position is different from this, whatever it is, the ball is in the court of the PAC 12. Calling DirecTV is not going to change anything. Those who want the PAC 12 on DirecTV should calll the PAC 12 and tell THEM to agree to what is necessary to make it happen. The "all-or-nothing" approach and at the same per viewer rate that a local cable company in the PAC 12 territory has agreed to pay makes no sense for a national carrier.
This channel will never be on DirecTV
This is exactly what the cable companies wanted when they started this network. They knew DirecTV wouldn't pay, so it would force people to switch to cable. These 4 cable companies orchestrated this whole thing. We will never get this channel and I will miss almost half the games because of it. This is absolutely unforgiveable.
It will be on DirecTV.
Will it be on DirecTV within a week? Probably not.
Will it be on DirecTV in 2 weeks? Maybe, I'd say that is possible.
Will it be on DirecTV before the end of September? I definitely think so.
I'd say the BEST case scenario right now is this:
- PAC12 and DirecTV will come to an agreement Monday.
- Channel(s) will go on test Monday night.
- Channel(s) will go live on Wednesday.
And I am thinking the 1 channel + feeds is the deal most likely to succeed at this point.
However, I see it as a really GOOD possibility they won't come to a deal just yet, and it will drag on past the Thursday Sept. 5th football games.
Just be prepared for that, and make other plans if need be.
Man, toss that on top of the world ending in December and this is turning out to be a really crappy year.
As long as you fork over money to DirecTV, you have basically already forgiven them.
How unforgivable is it really? Would you move to a spot that has Cable and thus PAC12 network just because of it? I mean, you seem to firmly believe PAC12 will never be carried, and that is a really, really LONG time.... A lot longer than say... planning a move.
You know most of the people that can't get the Pac 12 Network on cable in Oregon are from the small towns. It isn't that easy to move especially from a small town if you own your property or have small business there. It just isn't feasible for most people to just move when it might be 70-100+ miles to get to somewhere that has a cable company that carries the Pac 12 Network.
trust me, if the pac 12 picture quality is as bad on other cable companies as it is on mine, it isn't worth the switch. unless, all of you were looking for an excuse to go to cable!
I agree that there is a possibility even though I think slim that Directv/Pac 12 will get an agreement like you posted but I would bet a lot of money that the Pac 12 Network will never accept 1 channel + feeds. I'm not sure Directv will accept anymore either. So, I'm not as positive as you are that the Pac 12 Network will be on Directv for a longtime.
