UC vs Miami of Ohio football game on TV ?
Just checked the MAC 2017 TV schedule and there is no TV coverage listed for the game. Also checked the AAC ESPN TV schedule for games and the UC Miami is not listed there either. Is the game going to be on TV?
If it is not on why not. I thought it would at least be on ESPN 3. Anyone know the story?

I'm a new fan so excuse me if I don't know, but why do we play Miami (OH) - especially away? They are a bottom feeder team in the MAC and beating them won't help our schedule

Probably a case of ESPN negotiating selling TV rights (in return for a few $) to TWC Ohio (or Spectrum Sports, whatever it's called these days).

I bet the game ends up there.

Tradition... if we had gotten into the Big 12 or ACC, I believe we may have renegotiated or dropped the series. But I think they are holding onto it since we have basically no driveable away games in the AAC. Also, Miami leads the series 59-55-7 all-time... would be nice to take the lead. But as long as we are in the AAC, we don't really have a lot of leverage (or money) to not play them home and home.

That said, if the series was dropped, I wouldn't care much at all. Neither would most UC fans.

Maybe... But it does not change the fact it is time to move on from the series. It does UC no good to play Miami-- it does not spread our brand and does not help recruiting. What's more a loss will be detrimental on the local front.

There's no excuse to drop Miami as long as we're willing to host an FCS. I'd also like to believe our program isn't run by a bunch of chickenshits and/or hypocrites.

True. I would much rather play Miami than an FCS school. But I would like to not be so tied into this series... with only 4 non-conference games, being locked into a home-and-home with a below-average MAC school may not be a good thing. It would be different if they were having success on the level of Toledo or NIU in recent years.

If you owned KYUCAT Sports, Inc., would you buy the broadcast rights knowing that maybe 20 people will tune in?
