Are the games next weekend usually on ESPN/ESPN2?
Looks like various combinations of ESPN2 and ESPNU.
then everything will be live on either the Dos, the Classic, or the U. some if not all simulcast on 360.
Of the 8 first-round games, 4 are live on ESPNU: both of Friday's Albany games (3:00 & 6:30), plus the 9:00 Friday St. Paul game and the 4:00 Saturday Fort Wayne game. The other 4 are on "ESPN Syndication," which means that a local station could pick it up. Those 4 are also on ESPN 360, but will be on ESPNU on a tape delay basis only.
All 4 of the Quarterfinal games are on ESPNU:
Albany, 6:30 Saturday
St Paul, 9:00 Saturday
Worcester, 5:30 Sunday
Fort Wayne, 8:00 Sunday
that's a step backwards to the 2008 coverage plan. last year with all games live was much nicer, but i guess the experiment failed. although i don't see how this saves ESPN any money...the ad dollars for whatever's on U or Classic at that time are the same (and of roughly SlapChop quality), and they're sending out production/commentary crews to all the sites anyway.
The hockey selection show is on at 11:30am, or basically now.
ESPNU-Tape Delay (Sat. 3/27 - 11:30 PM) / ESPN Syndication-Live / ESPN360-Live
So it's possible a Comcast local or FSD could pick it up for live syndication.
