So…question of the day. Has anyone decided to gamble on Miami, straight-up? When’s the last time a #7 team was such a massive underdog against a #3 team? OK, that’s two questions, sorry for that.
Time for the week 10 schedule for NCAA football on your television screen. Then again, part of me wonders is there a reason to do this since every college football fan will be glued to MIAMI AGAINST FLORIDA STATE on SATURDAY NIGHT on ABC! Will Brent Musberger find the next Jenn Sterger? I sure hope so. Cable schedule…:
|Thursday||Shippensburg at Bloomsburg||8:00 PM||CBSSN|
|Saturday||Ohio State at Purdue||12:00 PM||BTN|

Hey did you notice that MIAMI IS PLAYING FLORIDA STATE??? Could we see another wide right? Maybe we can convince Jimmy Johnson and Bobby Bowden to come back and coach. I never really noticed before but they both have alliterative names. Everyone loves alliterative names. There are other somewhat important games on the sked but, hey, The U against FSU!
Now for the specialty pack schedule, which can’t compare because MIAMI-FLORIDA STATE isn’t on it:
|Thursday||South Florida at Houston||7:00 PM|
|Thursday||Louisiana-Monroe at Troy||8:00 PM|
|Thursday||Arizona State at Washington State||10:30 PM|
|Friday||USC at Oregon State||9:00 PM|
|Saturday||Mississippi State at South Carolina||12:00 PM|
|Saturday||Northern Illinois at Massachusetts||12:00 PM|
|Saturday||Temple at Rutgers||12:00 PM|
|Saturday||Army at Air Force||12:00 PM|
|Saturday||West Virginia at TCU||3:30 PM|
|Saturday||Clemson at Virginia||3:30 PM|
|Saturday||Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech||7:00 PM|
|Saturday||UTEP at Texas A&M||9:00 PM|
|Saturday||Nevada at Fresno State||10:30 PM|
No Jameis Winston? No Duke Johnson? Puh-leeze. Well, again, Bell doesn’t have their specialty pack schedule up past Friday night. I just don’t get these guys. Is it that hard to fill empty channel schedules with some sort of programming? And then put it on the guide? You know, for the viewers? I have said it before, I enjoy Fibe TV but this screams of laziness and lack of foresight, especially when frickin’ Rogers has the sked up already, and Bell will probably just copy the damn thing!
So in summary, Bell still acts a bit lazy, and HOLY SHIT the CANES ARE FACING THE NOLES???? I saw that commercial I believe a dozen times last night and most of the halftime was about that game. It better be an awesome game. I will not be a happy camper Sunday morning if it turns out to be nothing more than a rehash of the FSU-Clemson debacle earlier this season. Not…happy.
Update: How I could miss the Oklahoma State-Texas Tech game on FOX I don’t know. But yeah it’s a pretty important game to see who stays in the Big XII race for the Fiesta Bowl. Also it looks like Tennessee-Missouri was added to the Bell list at least. I am getting really sick and tired of Bell being late. Fucking lazy asses.
Update #2: The Bell Fibe guide for the U.S. College Sports Package is not working. Nothing is shown for tomorrow’s games. This is as of 9:10 pm EST. So, not even 15 hours before the games are to begin tomorrow and nothing is up. Not impressed at all.
