When is someone going to televise teh Zips games that aren't already on ESPN2 or ESPNU? This is an exciting team, even with a first year starter at QB.

I look at some of these other games on, with teams 2000 miles away that nobody heard of, and wonder if anybody in NE Ohio is watching them.

We have a great product right here, but nobody knows about it. Nobody can see past the Buckeyes, cuz that's all that gets shoved down our throats all year.

I grew up watching the Bucks and watch the big games, but come on, what's entertaining about watching 58-7 and 30-7 games the rest of the time? I'll take two evenly matched teams with wide open offenses that come down to the last minute a lot of times.

STO, ya listenin? LOL.

I'm a huge OSU fan but I enjoy watching the MAC as well. I would much rather have a MAC game on locally over the noon Big East game's I've been getting (I've seen Syracuse 3 times, that about says it all).

The problem I have with the games that are being televised is they're production makes me go to sleep. I know it may be hard to pump up a Ball State/Ohio U game, but the announcers sound as if they're not even in the same building and the whole thing just seems like a high school production to me (both from ESPN+ and FSN Ohio). I'd love to see the day where a network (STO????) would take over and bring us a MAC game of the week and take it serious and really pump it up to the fans. I'm positive the students/fans would get behind it.

You know what's really sad? I live near Akron. I finally saw the last minute punt return here Tuesday morning at 10:00am on SportCenter.

I saw a picture in the press release, but never saw the video.
