BTN Plus.  That’s not great...

Yeah I don't understand their reasoning behind BTN+.  They have like 3 or 4 alternate channels, just use those for the games.  What on earth makes them think people are going to buy the plus package for blowout OOC games vs low major teams?  They are taking the worst programming and charging a premium price, it's nonsensical.  But I guess I shouldn't complain because I'd rather miss OSU vs SC State than a B1G game.

Im so excited for Buckeye basketball. It's nice to have a head coach with some integrity and who actually believes what he preaches. This is a build up to the final four in 2020

Those early BTN + games may be the ones to see live!

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

So we have all of the conference basketball game times, but virtually none of the football game times?

I'm very surprised all the conference games are already slotted.  Usually they wait for some of the weekend slots until the week or 2 before.  The prime matchup gets Sunday on CBS, the lesser gets  regional or Saturday coverage.  We have 4 Sunday CBS (and 1 FOX national broadcast) games in what is expected to be a bit of a "step back" season.  Obviously OSU brings the eyeballs and the ratings so I'm good with it. Another good thing - no more dreaded 6:30 weeknight BTN tipoffs!  I see we do have one FS1 6:30 game vs Maryland but at lest that's on a Friday night (which is weird) so that's a better chance folks can leave work early than on a Tuesday or Wednesday night.

It does seem odd that the opener, which is a pretty intriguing national draw even if it is 2 Ohio teams, doesn't have a tip time or TV slot yet.

We better have a hell of a record heading into February. All of our tough road games being stacked at the end of the year doesn’t set up well for a strong finish, but if the team pulls it together they are more than capable of surprising everyone.

I see 14 likely wins before Feb 1. Then another 8 games we should win after that.  22 wins should be good enough to get a tourney bid, and maybe by that time they are peaking and have a good run in the B1GT.
