Arguably the most significant, exciting, and intriguing game outside of the BCS Championship and I haven't heard a word about it on ESPN today. Is that because Cotton Bowl television rights belong to Fox? Or because ESPN is gay for tu?
Your will to win will define you tomorrow.
ding, ding. It's on Fox. ESPN is owned by ABC. We drive eyeballs to another network.
i was thinking the same thing last night..... not a word... even if it is on another network, so are NFL games and NBA games and baseball games....ESPN doesnt play all CFB games either and most of the big12 games are on Fox but they still talk about them as well..
This i think is personal..... for leaving the BIG 12 and forcing them to up the SEC offer for a new TV deal.... I honestly think they hate A&M
Just my opinion.
Seriously? After all of the pub we've gotten on ESPN this season, some of you are still buying in to the "ESPN hates us" conspiracy theories?
I guess they must hate OU too.
The same scenario happens every year for the Cotton. ESPN doesn't promote the Sun Bowl or the Cotton Bowl (the only 2 bowls they don't broadcast). These 2 bowls direct viewers away from the ESPN family of channels.
ESPN is supposed to be a sports news organization, but it's obvious they are as concentrated on their own agenda just like any other "news" channel. ESPN is there to make money, not to supply sports news. LHN ring a bell???
I really like the Fox broadcast/production. Very NFL
Awwww shit just got deep....get your boots on
This is what is confusing to me.
There are only a handful of bowl games that aren't televised by ESPN, so why does it hurt to even talk about our game?
I can understand not advertising the game. That makes complete sense.
But to almost ignore it seems a bit petulant.
You are either going to be a leader or not. to be a leader, you throw your shoulders back, tits to the sky, head up, cock out.
The sooner college fooball fans reach past ESPAM for their telecast needs, the better. The future is direct-from-the-conference Webcasts, where viewers pick from several different groups of game-callers for their audio (thus enabling Aggies to avoid listening to Mustferker's bile). ESPN is like CBS Evening News was circa 2000. It's widely watched now, but increasing choice and more timely, focused content will obsolete their monopoly faster than a whore speed-strip.

after all the Pub..... they had no choice in the matter after the what JF did..... And even then it really never was about the team or Sumlin but more about JF... JF forced the conversation onto ESPN that simple.
And Its not about a conspiracy theory, i just think they have chosen not to talk much about A&M this bowl season, FACT.... most of the Pub if any are what you find on-line under the SEC blog sites.... if you dont think A&M's success is eating on the higher ups in ESPN then you have no clue. This is going to cost them big money they didnt want to have to pay out.... and the bigger A&M gets the stronger the SEC brand gets.... ESPN invested big into t.u. not A&M this hurts that investment.
OU does nothing for them in the way of making them money or costing them more money, BIG12 is set.... so talking about them or not talking about them again does nothing.
but you go ahead and keep drink'n the Koolaid if you think ESPN rises above the money.
Yeah, I'M the one drinking the Koolaid. Your previous post had nothing to do with the economics of them covering us, you said you thought it was because "ESPN hates A&M". Go put some more tin foil on your head.
