I don't want to rehash the mtn deal - nobody wants to play Tuesday nights on ESPN - but I found this quote funny...


"It's the biggest game in the 10-year history of the Mountain West -- and almost nobody's going to see it. The league has placed BYU-Utah on The Mtn., channel 616 on DirecTV if you have it. If you have cable ... watch the ESPN ticker."

I couldn't agree more. The TV thing still sucks and pisses me off. Even more that I relocated mid season and no longer have Comcast.

Yeah, this game should have at least been on Versus.

The visibility of the MWC really sucks and having this game on the mtn doesn't help at all. At least Versus now has a few PAC-10 games and the NHL so at least hard-core sports fans know of its existence.
