Is the Indiana game NOT on tv? I live in chicago and I cant find listings for it on any channel or big ten network. Is it on tv? Can i stream it? HELP!?
I'm Slightly FREAKING OUT!
ESPN 2, home slice.
People are so quick with a neg these days!
For the use of home slice. Such an underrated term.
home slice is old school...circa 1986 maybe earlier
Home slice is mint!
calm down. breathe. espn2 12 real time. 11 Chicago time.
espn 2 in east coast (midwest) or national?? living in california and being a michigan fan is annoying... i get ucla and usc game on the (no btn or espn360) channels... luckily i go to the big house annually...
I just checked the ESPN website (as a fellow fan living on the west coast) and it's on ESPN2 nationally, so you can stop worrying.
Get to an alum bar to watch with some fellow wolverines or burn out your fuse on Saturday alone
Is the game on ESPN 2 guys? I'd heard it was but I wasn't sure.
Yeah, it's on ESPN 2 nationally, lol.
I'm pretty upset at Time Warner Cable out here. Sent them an e-mail and made a phone call about adding the Big Ten Network. Just a matter of volume, if we can get enough Big Ten Alumni to clamor for it, they just might add it.
Really? Where are you?
I figured that if we had it down here in SoFL, everyone had it.
I'm near LA. No, we don't have it on Time Warner here.
Sad to say but the only cable companies that even give two craps about the BTN are those in the Big 10 states and maybe those bordering Big 10 states. You'd be better off getting U-Verse, DirecTV or Dish (although in non-Big 10 states Dish charges for it while on U-Verse and DirecTV it's just part of the mid level package).
Alum in Florida and can vouch that Brighthouse carries the BTN. You have to pay an extra $4 a month for the sports pack, but they do carry it.
I'm in LA's South Bay (Hermosa Beach), and TWC is totally unresponsive on issues like this. I dumped them for FiOS.
Switch to FiOS or DirecTV.
My brother has Comcast in Maryland and he has it, though he has to pay $5 extra for a sports tier. You might be able to do the same. (I have Directtv.)
So if I have used my Ovaltine super secret decoder correctly and figured out all the secret lingo on this thread I believe I can watch the game on ESPN2 Sat.at noon eastern time? You guys sure are tough to get any info out of!
Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.
That's enough to watch on mute for me. I hate Pam Ward
WIN FOR THE DEAF GUY!
Of course, she still manages to sound stupid on closed captions, too.
Pam Ward is the broadcaster? Shoot me now I think even the BTN color commentator is better than she is...
Is that the chick that sounds like a dude?
Can we get a Frank Beckmann radio feed in Chicago, so I can mute Pam Ward?

I guess the only out-staters in luck are Chicago (yay for me and the OP!) and Little Rock (wtf?).
yay. Wayne Laravie has possibly gotten worse as his career has "progressed".
Anyone else find it a little dumb UM/IU is on ESPN2 while UM/MSU is on the Big 10?
I agree that it is dumb for UM/MSU to be on BTN, but then again it needs to draw in people to be relevant, and this is a marque match-up. I guess I'll be heading to one of the UM bars in NY to see it.
I will further that claim and say it's stupid that we're on ESPN2 with Pam Ward this weekend when State plays Wisconsin on ESPN with the better set of ESPN announcers. We're the undefeated teams.
But I think they know that MSU/Wisc will draw in more fans than UM/IU for the simple fact that IU has been historically bad for years.
is that BTN gets to choose a few high profile games every year to broadcast. Not UM/OSU high profile, but something just below that, like UM/MSU.
Here's a handy TV schedule to keep you from freaking out for the rest of the season:
so the game is not on the ocho?
Use your dvr and sinc it up with the best broadcasters and analysts that we have on the sweet game day blog!
Do you have to pay to listen online? I live in Chicago and think that if I don't go to a bar to watch the game, I am going to do this "sync the tv with the interwebs of the radio broadcast" thingamajig you guys are talking about. I think it's the way to go.
