Cal Fans with DirecTV get screwed


No Big Game for you!

It seems that the Big Game will be shown on Versus this year.  That sucks for a few reasons, such as the fact that Versus tends to have some of the worst production value and commentators in the industry.  Not to mention consistent technical problems in their transmissions.

But that is nothing compared to the fact that it is not available to DirecTV subscribers.  So, no Arizona game, and no Big Game.

My question is why would the Big Game be televised on Versus anyway?  It's not like Nov 21 is a jam-packed Pac-10 slate.  Surely ABC, ESPN, or Fox Sports could have picked this up?  This makes no freaking sense at all.  The 3:30 ABC game is Penn State @ Mich State.  Sure, a great game if you live there, but why the hell are we on the coast forced to watch this?

Personally, I'm getting kind of tired of being kicked in the nuts by the conference TV schedule, and the ridiculous tie-ins.  Versus?  The Big Televen and the SEC have their own dedicated networks, and Notre Dame has NBC as its bitch.  But us?  We get shunted off to some public-access cast off.

Sucks.  Just sucks.
