For everyone who complains about ESPN, this is a fascinating read. It takes a little time, but it's well worth the read.

I was furious with ESPN last night. They put all the early WBB games on their alternate stations, but the nightcaps were pay per view, and the only game I got was the UConn-Texas game (an ugly blowout from the opening tip). They didn't show the game I wanted (Oklahoma-ND) until there were two minutes left in regulation. That meant I didn't get to see Carlee Roethlisberger play.

Are you an Oklahoma fan? Because if you're not, that's just really creepy.

Dan....you're welcome.

Interseting (and yes, long) read about the batlle of the networks..... Thanks

Not a big fan of ESPN as I feel they jumped the shark a while back..... specially relating to football....

LSU fan. Carlee was the only reason I was interested in that particular game...at least until I got to look at some of the ND players.

There are a few non-Tigers I always enjoyed watching. Ashley McElhiney (Vandy), Ivory Latta (UNC), and Alison Bales (Duke). They had game. Carlee's a frosh so it's too soon to watch for basketball reasons. But you gotta root for anyone named Roethlisberger!!
