this guy evidently hired to work for AD
PSA: If you have Directv and live in Indiana, check to make sure you still have NBC. Due to a dispute between the NBC provider and Directv, NBC is not available for viewing to some of us lucky fans who want to see the game on Saturday or watch shows on a network that hasn't been relevant since Friends.
Maybe I've been living with my head up my ass, but I had no idea about this until the TV ratings thread earlier today and I figured that it deserved its own thread.
The easiest way to get around this is to buy a cheap HD antenna and use it for Saturday. I found one pretty cheap on Amazon for only $10.
Good luck and may the corn be with you.

So all across my twitter feed today there have been pictures of one quite iconic call from 25 years ago on this date:
Shot on Ehlo.... GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!
If you didn't picture Jordan's jump and fistpump, you haven't been paying attention. What other calls stand out to you in the last 25 years? Any Michigan related? One that sticks in my brain is "GALLON, they left him alone!" It always amazes me how hearing radio and/or TV calls can bring one back to exactly where they were the moment they heard it.
I didn't see this posted on the board yet but per MGoBlue.com, the Iowa game will be a 12 pm kickoff with coverage on ESPN/ESPN2. Let the complaining about noon starts begin!
Seeing as the season is quickly approaching (god, Thursday cannot get here soon enough and, of course, Saturday) which brings up a thought: how the hell am I going to be able to watch all the Michigan football games out here in the badlands that is West Texas? I do have dishnetwork and have Big Ten Network (although I may not depending on the status of the program being dropped) but I'm more concerned about any noon/afternoon games that are brodcast on ESPN or abc and such. I'm terrified that I'll the game will be blacked out in favor of any of the Texas schools. Any suggestions or other Wolverines out here in El Paso have any thoughts or am I just being too paranoid? Thanks for any insight and Beat the Tide!!!
It's the off-season, it's getting pretty late, and I'm bored. I thought I would start a discussion of Summer/Fall TV shows you were excited about.
Personally, I am most excited about Breaking Bad starting next week (July 15th). It's the final season, so I'm expecting some fireworks. Hell on Wheels, another well-made AMC show (August 12th), is another one that I am looking forward to. It's a bit more of a slow-moving show, but it definitely got me hooked during the first season.
Dexter will be starting back up in the Fall, probably around the end of September. Community starts back up in October, though it is being mvoed to a Friday night slot, where shows go to die. The League will be back in early-ish Fall.
Any shows you are all looking forward to resuming this Summer or Fall?
Anything else you guys feel like talking about?
Also with the possibility of creating a 5th and 6th season if this 4th season does well
I just blued myself
