    One thing that I actually enjoy while watching (since I only watch BTN's pregame on Saturdays), DiNardo and Griffith haven't adopted ESPiN's "Embrace Debate" stance and taken the complete opposite view on every subject.

    DiNardo and Griffith actually agree on things.

    Doing our Spring Game a few years back, Mike Tomczak wasn't half-bad on that game on BTN (if they need game analysts). But he's an agent and current coaches arena ball.

    This matches my view on Gruden. I think he's insightful, but he's always turned up to 11. Before long, listening fatigue sets in for me. Even Gus Johnson finds a way to turn it down to 8 or 9 some of the time.

    Great chance for those to DVR/record missed games. :oh:

    Nice catch. They are doing the Cal game as we speak.

    Friggin BTN is screwed up! Supposed to be watching OSU at Michigan State, so what do we get? The TSUN game! Wanted the OCC games but that started early, also! 12am! Didn't find out about it till this morning. Damn!

    The Black History Month Football Special that debuted Friday on BTN is rather good and informative.

    It'll be replayed over the weekend (and probably more).

    so I like to bug my cable company all the time about adding BTN, but this is the best response I have ever gotten from them

    While they could be borrowing some of Fox's NFL rigs during the offseason, did anyone notice the huge upgrade in picture quality during the Nebraska spring game?

    The Journey has always had great video cameras, but the regular BTN game broadcasts have always been second or third rate in terms of video feed. It is widescreen HD format but is both pixelated and overly sharpened.

    Someone in this thread posted that they hoped that Fox would sell/hand off their old HD cameras at some point and I'm wondering if that happened (or they simply had enough revenue to do it right).

    Hey, leads to my theory that it's going to be FOX and CBS (basketball-only) next TV contract (for the Big Ten) :biggrin:.

    One thing I have noticed though, Chris Martin hasn't been on anything after his agent thingy. They've been using Derek Rackley instead (but I haven't been watching religiously, so I might've missed Martin).

    Spring game will be broadcasted at 7 PM on Saturday:)

    Wouldn't it be great if it were live on BTN (like a good number of other Big Ten schools)? :biggrin:

    Up until now, you had to be on your home's TWC wi-fi network to watch live TV thru these apps. Now it's TV everywhere for this small handful of channels. Don't know that this changes much for people since TWC customers already had access to the same feed thru the BTN 2Go app, but it's nice to see the network at the front of a change like this for a large carrier. As a user of both the TWC app and the BTN app, I'll probably switch to start watching thru the TWC app since I don't have to enter my login info ever damn time I try to use it.
