ESPN sleaze?
Looking at the schedule this week and ESPN has blanks by all the Big 12 games for its TV. Looking at the schedule, it appears they have chosen not to list Fox or FS1. They do have CBSSN games listed.

Now its possible Fox is really late with its schedule, but it seems just like ESPN being a jerk and providing poor information to its customers.

Now Big 12 fans get to feel how hockey fans felt since the mid-2000s.

I have noticed they are late on having those 10 day tv windows listed in their scoreboards.


Conspiracy? I could actually believe it.

ESPN's website is not picking on the Big 12. They don't identify Fox or FS1 TV coverage for any of the college football games. It just happens that, for this Saturday, there are 4 Big 12 games, 1 on Big Fox and the other 3 on FS1.

For whatever reason, this doesn't extend to pro sports -- ESPN's NFL and MLB listings are showing the TV outlet for all games.

Speculation: The reason for the omission on the CFB listings is that Fox doesn't permit ESPN's website to use video clips from Fox/FS1 CFB games.

Just went to ESPN and on the CFB scoreboard they show Fox by the OU vs. ISU game, FS1 by the TCU vs. WVU game, etc... Must have just been late getting them put up there.

Gamesmanship - the art of winning games by using various ploys and tactics to gain a psychological advantage.

That's all it is. The Eastcoast Sports Programming Network "inadvertently" leaves Fox/FS1 off their list of games.

People express outrage and come up with conspiracy theories when in reality it's most likely nothing more than a little "dig" at the competition.

I find it interesting that they list ACC games on Raycom and RSNs as ACCNE, the same reference they use for games shown on ACC Network Extra, ESPN's ACC streaming service..

That's because they only tell you how to view them through the WatchESPN app... you may be able to get the game on an antenna, but they won't tell you how.

Honestly, I'm ok with that. If you can't figure it out without help, go to theacc.com
