    NMSU @ UNM Game to be on ESPN3

    First Post Banner
    I saw in the WAC prospectus, that the Game will be on ESPN 3. Are we paying back the Aggies for last years football game on ESPN 3 that screwed over Lobo Fans?

    would rather be on ESPN3 that I can actually stream than a local feed that is not able to stream. Sucks it's not on at least regionally TV like Root that you could see nationally. Should be on hell of a game this year! Major battle inside.

    We'll be counting on you, then, to actually tell us about it, since many of us won't be able to see it. It will be like being back in the 1990s. That, we're told, is progress. Go Lobos!

    Just a guess, but most on here will actually be at the game, so won't need to rely on TV to see it!

    Other good thing about ESPN3, you can see a replay at a later time as well without taking up space on your DVR.

    MY50TV has not announced anything yet as far as broadcasting basketball this year.. They may be the ones who do the camera work and announcing, and espn3 just picks it up, similar to what we saw with rootsports and my50tv last year.


    I would be very surprised if there aren't a few partnership deals in the works between our local affiliates and espn3.

    When we announced the schedule last month we announced this game was on ESPN3, so this really isn't breaking news. It's been on our website for about a month.

    Hee hee. ..... In past years, I've watched the games on cable at a sports bar. Can't watch ESPN3 at a sports bar, but I may badger my bar's owner to give me his password. Good luck with that, eh? ..... Sure I can complain if I have only basic TV *with* access to cable (sports bar) if the new broadcast contract means that having cable and satellite isn't enough to watch Lobo games. (You have to have the "special" type of cable, not just any cable.) I can complain if it's a step backward for Lobo fans, and it is. Not just for me.

    No, it's not news. But why object to a reminder? Lot of fans still don't know. There will be a lot more such reminders to come once the season start. Announce it as often and in as many ways as you want, there will still be many people here on game day asking why they can't see the games. If this one little reminder bothers anybody, they need to load up on the antacids now before the season starts. .... But everybody wil be happy on ESPN/2/U days.

    I'm all for reminders...the way it was presented it sounded like UNM never released the info, the WAC did.

    That was not my intention.


    I only brought this up because I wanted to know how others feel about the game just being on ESPN 3. One of my buddies who attends the games with me will not be able to go this year because his wife is expecting their first child sometime in early to mid-December (A Little Lobo for Christmas as his wife put it). So he would have liked to viewed the game on TV. I thought it was worth discussing.

    It is. And I wish I could tell you and your bud a way to watch it. It's still an important game to longtime Lobo fans, but it's not big enough on a national level to be on TV. We'll just have to sit tight and see if someone, maybe a local station, will pick it up if the game sells out. Maybe you guys know somebody who has access to ESPN 3. There's a few threads wandering around on the Lair about which cable/satellite systems have access to ESPN 3.

    It doesn't need to be on the national level. I would be happy with NBC Sports, CBS Sports and Root Sports or even My 50.

    Looking at the schedule, 16 games are on some ESPN platform. Only 7 on CBS Sports. Root and NBC Sports are not even mentioned. Although contracts may not be finalized.

    Other ESPN 3 Games to note.

    @ Fresno State
    @ Nevada
    Air Force @ UNM

    Games Maybe on ESPNU or ESPN 3

    @ Wyoming
    @ Colorado State
    Wyoming @ UNM
