chance of bowl: 13.6%
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.

For those of you with Directv, they are having a free trial of the NHL Center Ice package from now until 10-23-11. Looks like this weekend is all Detroit sports! Started off great last night!
Anyone out there a DirecTV subscriber who keeps getting hosed by the Big Ten games getting shoved to the ESPN alternate channel? This has happened almost every week with the absolute worst being the Michigan-Michigan St game. It wouldn't be a big deal if DirecTV offered the ESPN Alternate in HD but of course they DON'T! UNACCEPTABLE!!!
So here I am stuck watching in standard def the Wisconsin-Iowa game, the only game I was planning on sitting down to watch today, while Nebraska-Oklahoma St is on ABC (ok, fair enough) and GT-Clemson is on ESPN. Awesome.
Seriously, if ABC/ESPN is going to keep showing 3 games in the same time slot by bumping the 3rd to ESPN Alternate I think I'm going to go crazy. Anyone else out there outside the BIg Ten footprint (I'm in St. Louis, MO btw, not exactly outside the Big Ten footprint but still getting screwed regularly) getting hosed by this crap?
