Delaware has announced 3 more of their own produced games will air on NBC Sports Philadelphia (Elon, Towson, Drexel), with two of the games live on SNY, one on delay.

Reuben Frank (Eagles writer) talking about our league’s bad TV deal:

How is the Drexel-William & Mary game not on TV?

The first of those games is tomorrow.

Why would that game be more likely to be on TV than other games?

If Drexel were smart and gave an eff, they'd beg the league and Hofstra to bump tipoff to 2 PM on Saturday, else there may only be 200 in attendance.

Maybe the NFL shouldn't be scheduling playoff games around Drexel Basketball games. If the NFL were smart, they'd move the Eagles/Falcons game to 6:30.

No reason we shouldn’t have a national TV game on tonight or at least on some Thursdays. CBSSN is carrying 6-9 Tennessee State at 6-9 Eastern Illinois tonight at 7 o’clock. No reason there shouldn’t be a CAA game there in that slot.

CBSSN is carrying 7 OVC games while ESPNU has 7 more. That’s 14 games on national TV for a league with only regional interest in mostly smaller towns in KY/TN/IN/IL, while the CAA, playing in major metropolitan areas, has almost no TV exposure.

It is rather crazy CBS SN chose to deal with OVC over CAA especially after we moved our tournament to terrible nights for him.

Yeager took a lot of heat but the sad state of our media outlets would not be allowed under his watch

The loss of the NBC Sports Regional deal was the biggest blow. That was the bread and butter of the league since way before the northern teams joined on and the games were on HTS. There's an NBC Sports affiliate in almost every CAA market. The larger power conferences all have deals with the national sports networks, so their games aren't on NBCS. NBA and NHL games are not aired every night, so each affiliate usually has 2 channels with a lot of dead air time. I'm glad that Delaware stepped up and put their game feed on NBC Sports Philadelphia last night on what was a dead air night for the network. But there's really no reason why the CAA shouldn't continue to air games regularly on the network.

Comcast was probably losing money on the package so that was why they cut it. Last year, they had 7 regular season games, but all were from Towson, William & Mary, and one from Delaware, the 3 closest programs to Washington. Al Koken had done the games for years, but NBC probably wanted him to do all Caps duties.

ASN had 9 other games, as they were uber-cheap, broadcasting most of their games from a studio last year.

Locally in Charleston we had 7 more CofC games on MyTV (John Kresse was one of the announcers). That’s 23 games we lost availability to.

The OVC has 12 teams, and only one of them has a better RPI than the sixth best RPI in the CAA.

What does HTS mean?
