ESPN Who?

Here's an artistic representation of what most of us in New Jersey and Connecticut will see if we try to find the Scarlet Knights and the Huskies on our home television screens this Saturday.

It has been suggested that we all head to bars to watch the game on something called ESPNU, but wouldn't it be better if they could just play all the games in Rutgers Stadium? I've got a couple of seats there.

ESPNU actually is on the Rutgers cable system, so they'll be showing the game in the student centers, but up in Storrs they're really mad at the virtual cable blackout just when their team has been nationally ranked for the first time in its history.

Greg Schiano probably put this in its proper perspective though: "If we're 8-0, we're not on ESPNU," he said. "You make your own bed." (quote taken from Aditi Kinkhabwala's Scarlet Knights Newzer)

I discovered this morning that the illustration I made for this entry makes a semi-cool retro computer screen background. Click on the picture to see it full size, then right click and set it as your background.
Now you can pretend that you're watching the static on my 13-inch $69 television!

Dear Scarlet Knights,
We'd be very appreciative if you guys could please lose this game. We really need UConn to be ranked highly when we beat them back to I-AA. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thanks in advance.

Yours,
The Mountaineers

Dear 'Neers,
Maybe it would help your ranking just as much if you could point out that the team that beat the Fuskies 69-0 tonight was beaten by you 31-3.
As in '06 we don't plan on losing to any Big East teams other than you and (for some inexplicable reason) the Bearcats.
Thanks,
The Knights
