if I remember correctly, I think this was listed as the info on the official site for some time. I'm confused why they just now put out a press release. Not shooting you down, just wondering.
2010 ND Game Time/TV Set
Correct. This is old news.
It has been listed on the mgoblue.com site for weeks now. No clue why they waited until today to make a press release.
meh you asked for a link, so I gave one. Its not a big deal whether its old or not, your threads always seem to have some substance to them relative to the other topics which pop up so I wouldn't worry about it.
September 11th, eh? Interesting.
I'm channelling Coach Dale in Hoosiers here, but yes, September 11th. You'll find it on your calendar every year.
My mom's bday! I'll probably be at this game and will be the only person in my family with Michigan apparel from head to toe.
I will also be at this game surrounded by ND fan...
Unless your Mom calls me like she did last year and we celebrate another Michigan victory over ND/ her birthday naked.
What exactly constitues "nationally televised" when it comes to sports progamming? I live on the east coast and did not receive the 2003 UM-ND game on ABC, and instead got some ACC/Big East game. However, according to the article linked UM-ND has been nationally televised for 22 straight games. Just curious.
that's because its on NBC
When ND plays at home its on NBC, however the 2003 game was at the Big House and televised on ABC. ABC had a coverage map on that Saturday and the M game was NOT shown in my area. However, the article states that 22 straight M-ND games have been nationally televised. So, my question is do ABA regionally televised games count as "nationally" televised? (this was before Big Ten's new contract with Disney, so the game was also not on ESPN).
I'm not exactly sure how all the coverage rules work, because it's intensely complicated with four conferences and maybe 50 games on a given non-conference Saturday, but I believe "nationally televised" means something along the lines of "it's on TV somewhere outside the normal coverage area," which would be Michigan and Indiana, plus probably Illinois and maybe Ohio. A national game can still get bumped by a regional game, which would have been the ACC/Big East game in 2003.
Example: The "national" game on ABC is Florida vs. LSU at 3:30. But, Michigan-MSU is also starting at 3:30, and ABC can supercede the national coverage for a local game, so it does, and Fla-LSU gets bumped to ESPN or off cable entirely in Michigan.
Again, this is all speculation based on a few things I've read and seen, but I think it's how it all works, and how the term "national" doesn't really mean on every TV in the country.
Will it still be in widescreen since their coaching personnel has changed??
