M Baseball & Softball TV schedules released

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on February 14th, 2013 at 3:42 PM

The Michigan baseball and softball programs both released their TV schedules on BTN today. And wow, does it suck badly. They're basically saying "I hope you have a subscription to MGoBlueTV or you ain't seeing nothin'!"

4/16 at Indiana 2pm
4/16 at Indiana 4pm
4/21 vs Iowa 3pm
4/27  at Nebraska 2pm
5/11 B1G Tournament Semifinals TBD
5/12 B1G Tournament Championship Game TBD

There is a chance BTN will pick up the full series from May 3-5 against northwestern as a wildcard selection. I would bank on it since those games are usually pretty good. 

And here is the grand of total of 1 confirmed baseball game that will be on BTN-

 

4/14 vs Penn State Noon
5/22 B1G Tournament TBD
5/23 B1G Tournament TBD
5/24 B1G Tournament TBD
5/25 B1G Tournament TBD
5/26 B1G Tournament (if nec.) TBD

 

I expect the game against northwestern at Wrigley to be picked up regardless of what BTN says.

What content will BTN be carrying instead of baseball and softball? Football and basketball replays? It seems like they would be wanting more content. I just don't get it.

It's a shame that there isn't more baseball on BTN to begin with, but a quick scan of the schedule there actually reveals that Wisconsin has no baseball games that will air on BTN and only two softball games. Still, you would think that this would be the perfect thing to air for the conference's own network in March, April and May, but they don't seem to agree. That's unfortunate that only one Michigan baseball game will be on BTN, and really unfortunate that their slots don't really cover a representative sample of all the games for either baseball or softball, at least in my opinion.
