RE: I was thinking about this CUSAtv and our TV contracts
I never listen to any outside tv guys, always have radio of our own guys Randy and Leo...Sometimes its out of sync, but can live with it to not hear these other clowns....The production was basically watching from stadium Scoreboard because CUSA is so cheap they make the individual schools produce the games...

For the life of me I cannot figure out why WKU students do not produce football games on Fox College Sports like they do for basketball, at least that channel is on Direct TV....I did for the first time see a CUSA game on TV this season, Marshall vs. UNCC, was weird seeing a CUSA game on TV...

RE: I was thinking about this CUSAtv and our TV contracts
tv viewership is cratering, and with it sports television viewership. people that are fretting over tv markets are arranging the deck chairs on the titanic. I've made this same argument in a sh*t-disturber thread from an aac guy, and his response was that there are still a lot of old people, and their universe was built on that belief. my response was, "good luck with that".

we will all be streaming in 5 years. GenXers are joining millenials in cutting the cord.
tv is going the way of the dodo bird.

RE: I was thinking about this CUSAtv and our TV contracts
I watched part of the S. Miss at UTSA on facebook. It was actually a lot better set up than I see on espn3 for the CUSA games that are shown. Way better than Middle vs FIU shown on espn3, Saturday.

But there were only 3.3 to 3.7k watching this game...early on mostly 3.3 to 3.4 and later it reached 3.7 You would think there would be 5x that amount just in S. Miss fans watching. It's not like facebook is something you have to download or asking 10 people how to find it. I believe there are over 2 billion users. So why are we complaining about not being on TV when a game is shown free that can be watched on your TV with APP or on your phone or tablet or PC...

3.3 to 3.7k watched

Game this weekend.
1. I paid 6.95 for Cusa Tv
2. I had Roku already connected to my big screen
3 I added the R-Cast Channel to my Roku
4 I added the R-Cast app to my phone
5 I paid the 2.49 extra so the video would cast longer than just 10 minutes
6. Then I saw the worst tv production ever. Dead silence, great increases in volume, the same dumb graphic over and over.

The only thing worse was the game itself.

We have a TV package like FCS conferences

You left off one thing....

20 minutes of the play by play guys talking to the El paso DA....no, not the AD. The DA of the city of El Paso talking about DIUs and the cost of it. "Make no mistake, once you are charged...You will pay over $10,000" I bet I heard El Paso had 10 DUI cases a day...20 times.

Who the hell wants to pay to watch a game and here the local yahoo's talking about DIUs for 20 minutes of it.

I had to mute the sound because of the loud shout that would pop up without any warning

I am so close to simply reading books in lieu of the boob at this point.....

I only stream.....I'm beyond sick of stupid fk'n commercials and embedded pop-ups.......you could flip to five channels in 3 secs. and be guaranteed of seeing four commmercials.....

I hardly ever get to watch college fb on Saturday....live 70 miles away from Western so we leave in time for that and for my son to eat. Well I do also but can do without. This was the first road game of Western that I missed seeing in person in the last 5 years. Other than the Bahama's Bowl (no passport and I don't fly).

So when I get the chance I enjoy watch other CUSA schools play. But you do have to work to find out where they are being shown. You would think each of our schools would send out a text to everyone on their ticket list letting fans know where to watch....

College football is about the only sport I enjoy watching any more. S. Miss is probably a lot like Western with a older fanbase and schools don't realize how simple a text and email helps those older fans find where to watch away games. I checked S. Miss schedule on the school site and it said facebook but didn't link to it.

It's amazing how far ahead schools like Iona are to us. Every home game on ESPN3. While our AD's ask us to pay $100 a year to watch glitching video from the scoreboard. As our fanbases shrink.
