So it's 8:01 and there's 5 and a half minutes left in the St. John's-Seton Hall game...I was wondering how much of the Zags game we were going to miss this time? I was in Hawaii a few years back (and really exited that the Zags game was on ESPN) and I was "treated" to the second half of the Duke-Gonzaga game because the lead up game went into double OT. Why can't they stagger the games a half hour apart and show highlights inbetween games? :mad:

I'm so tired of turning it to ESPN to watch the Zags game, just to see the end of some worthless game that few people care about, with timeouts and fouling and everything else to delay the inevitable. This drives me nuts!!!

:argh: :espn2: :argh:

Can we get any more stoppages in time with less than a minute left :mad: This is a meaningless east coast game.

Can't get a break.

On FSN, the Pac-10 bumps us to a recorded broadcast at 10:00 pm. At least we can watch the entire game.

On ESPN, we just flat out miss part of the game. :mad:

I guess we will never know what music Portland decided to play when they stormed the court. I didnt really care, but I was a bit curious. My guess was that they would play something by Twisted Sister.

and the picture quality is horrible!:mad:

My wife (who majored in broadcast studies) looked at it and was horrified that they were showing this over national TV. They didn't even white-balance, and she could tell that at a glance.

The video quality was low-end home camcorder.
