Looks like you are going to have to pay to see CUSA games from now on. A stupid subscription service.

May be stupid but it's going to be how things are structured going forward. For 50 bucks a year you get that level of coverage. I'll do it in a heartbeat

And we’ve had to pay for “all-access” (or whatever the name may have changed to) to “watch” a lot of games—many of which were nearly unwatchable

You will probably still be paying for that on top of the ESPN sub.

I heard entirely too much about how crappy that was to give them any money. I relied on David Crane instead.

The last few years, since the video screen was installed, it’s been pretty good. They’ve even worked out the problem wi5 syncing the radio feed with the video. The first few years were really bad. The biggest problem now is that they use the overhead screen feed which means you see replays or “MAKE NOISE” signs instead of the game. But that is a problem that a lot of schools do, not just UAB.

Yep. If the video feeds were geared towards the online watchers/subscribers you might have a few more subscribers.

Then again, while we don't want to see Make Some Noise, etc. on our feeds, a sister school probably eats up that type stuff.

I like the deal the Conference received from ESPN. Each AD received a three year free membership to the "Jelly of the Month Club"
