Whoever is in charge of the GU broadcasts should look for a new job.

Terrible cameras, and running info-commercials over the first 3 minutes of the 2nd half? You've got to be kidding me.

TV timeout results in 5 minutes of commercials.

breaked at 10:00 on the game clock, came back with...still waiting. It's been 5 minutes since the game has been on. This is just ridiculous.

if you guys need to know anything about structured tax settlements, zoloft, diabetes drugs, or consumer credit consolidation, I am now well-versed. Thanks Root!

OOoooh, and mesothelioma. Got it down.

I had the same problem. Missed almost the entire second half.

However, it looked like the cable company was the problem. All those paid ads are a Frontier staple. Root always has those college basketball ads.

Are you also perhaps on Frontier?

If you're gonna start ranting and laying blame make sure you know the culprit. I have DirecTV and had no such problem (other than the delayed start because of UW's game). I think it might be your cable carrier.

Once the first half ended 20+ minutes of commercials ran and when they finally ended it was 3 minutes into the second half. Later at exactly the 10 minute mark (left) the same 20 minute plus string of commercials. When the game came back on there was little over 3 minutes left.


After the broadcast ended the same 20+ minutes of commercials aired again.


Go Zags!!!!

I didn't notice anything besides the late start from the UW game.

I have Comcast in Tacoma.

This would be a legitimate b*tch if it was directed towards the fact that Root wants to schedule games beginning at 3:00 and 5:00. There really is no reason to do that -- they had the USC-OSU game start at 8:00.

And the complaint also could be directed at GU who lets this happen. Any reason they can't just schedule the Varsity game to start 2 hours and 15 minutes after the JV?
