Also, I just got an e-mail from the old forum. They are cutting ticket prices for the Indiana game by 20 percent this week. I guess they have not been able to fill the stadium. To bad I am not anywhere near Indiana.

Big Ten Network. Sports bars should have it if you don't.

6-0 after Saturday.

No let down, boys. Gotta focus. When you take the court Saturday, be thinking about the Hoosiers, and not the win over the Vols or the upcoming revenge game against the Cougs.

If you have Comcast in Spokane, just call and order the Sports Ent package... it's like 5.99 more a month and you get a lot of sports channels plus the Big Ten Network.

I checked ESPNU schedule for Saturday. It lists a bunch of games but not GU.

Big 10 Network is Channel 404 for Comcast in Spokane. I'm 85.3% certain its not in HD, however. :(

That makes sense, since the game is on BTN, not ESPNU :rolleyes:

I'm an 11-hour drive from Indianapolis, but the economic downturn makes even a 20% discount seem somehow out of reach this week.

The Big 10 network and ESPN have been doing competitive advertising in the Twin Cities for the past year dogging each other and how evil the other station is, so if it's on the Big 10 network, it definitely ain't on ESPN's family of networks.

It may be that Comcast doesn't broadcast Big Ten Network in HD?

What they told me is -you can order the Sports Package for $5.99 and 1.99 service fee.

Also you can order this on Sat(if you want to take a chance with cust srv) and cancel after the game and you will be billed for "pro rata" usage. I am sure you get hit by 1 or 2 srv fees- but that would be almost free)

The easiest way to order the channel is probably live chat on comcast.com.

They also told me the game would be available on PPV(I couldnt find it)for 2.99-5.99(i didnt want to chance it)

Good luck and Go ZAGs Mang.

Spur of the moment decision by the wife and I. We are driving 11 hours to go to the game, we just bought tickets. We went to the Hall of Fame doubleheader last year and saw two great games.

as far as I can tell, DISH customers can only get the big 10 network if they live in a BIG 10 state. anyone know different??

I can confirm that. Channel 404 on Comcast in the Seattle area. (In fact, I'm watching it now. Iowa vs Northwestern.)

A view of the Comcast on-line TV guide shows Channel 404, HD, Live, GU at Indiana at 10:30 a.m. PST!!

WoooooHooooo!! :)

(Sorry, Woohoo. Got carried away. :D )

Indiana only had one chance at being competitive in that game and that was to control the ball, hit their outside shots and hit their free throws. While they forced a lot of Wake turn-overs, they couldn't hold on to the ball themselves and they couldn't stop Wake inside. They were game, but once the score started to balloon, no way could they get back in and Wake was off to the races.

If you have Direct TV but do not have the HD program it will be on channel 220. This is the Big 10 Network without HD.

I watched most of the second half of the Wake game. Indiana didn't quit, but they have lots of weaknesses. Not a lot of speed. Turnovers right and left. Wake could have made a bigger blowout had they played a little smarter and taken care of the ball better.
