this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Title says it all. It's on right meow. Started at 5:30. On until 7:30.
Man, Steve Levy announced some epic games back in the day. He announced like 3 of the 6 longest games in NHL history, or something like that.
Title says it all.. BC losing to Colorado deep in the second
4-1 Colorado.. 4 min left
Figured I'd start one since nobody else has. Game's on BTN.
0-0 with 14:30 left in the 1st.
I just wanted to let you know that I just got the torrent up for the Michigan-Miami (That Miami) CCHA Tournament Semi-Final game.
Cool video is up on mgoblue showing the hockey team practicing in Camp Randall.
Right now its the first video in the list... http://www.mgoblue.com/mzone/

I'm an ann arbor native who has lived in Austin for several years. One of the more exciting things to me about the Big Ten Network was being able to see more Michigan sports, especially any sport that isn't football.
But I have to say, the number of games is kind of underwhelming. What I most miss is heading down to Yost, so I looked to see what the schedule is for Ice Hockey. The network will be carrying a whopping 6 games this season for the entire conference! Michigan is in 2 of them, but come on. How is there less coverage of hockey compared to gymnastics or field hockey, etc?
The other thing that's annoying is I see that almost none of the games are being aired on TV at all the first half of the season, but a fair number will be the second half of the season. Most of them will be on local or regional TV.
2 games will be on BTN, I can get those. CSTV will have 3, I can get those.
3 games will be on Fox Sports Detroit, which I definitely can't get. 11 games will be on a Comcast local access channel. Why the hell can't they simulcast these onto BTN? I have 5 BTN overflow channels on my uVerse and I have never seen anything on one of them.
It seems to me that the schools need to get their TV contracts set up so that alternate channels can carry content if it isn't being aired in a certain area. So if FSN Detroit has a game, it should be on BTN as well and blacked out in the detroit region.
