Army VMI TV and Radio Availability

Friday, November 13, 2009

I've had a love/hate relationship with the CBS College sports broadcasts. This game will be aired behind a tape delay on CBS College sports... again, why sign a national TV deal if the network tries to bury all your broadcasts? Yeah, yeah, the game's against VMI, I understand - much bigger programs don't even get their D1-AA games on any TV... ok. But CBS College sports calls themselves the home of service academy football... all home games are supposed to be aired, and showing the games after the fact is purely pointless. "The Home of Service Academy Football" does very little for the football program of Virginia Military, it's understandable that they're not on the TV contract - but Army is. A quick look at the other academies' schedule shows that the stage was set for an Army -Navy doubleheader, Army/VMI at 12:00P and Navy/Delaware at 3:30P

Air Force has their conference deal with the Mountain West Network, and say what you will about that network... at least they show the games they're supposed to.

Anyway, I would have posted an online link for the VMI game anyway, but the CBSCS unavailability only serves to aggrivate me since instead of digging up Army radio and TV links I'm reading Navy and Air Force media releases like a moron.

Anyway, like I said, the VMI radio links are up under the radio tab. VMI has a free subscription package for their online sports coverage. Sign up if you would like to hear their radio play by play for the Army game. Likewise check that tab by game time for a link to free live streaming video of Army/VMI.

Update: the video stream is up under the radio tab, sorry I'm late, but unlike CBS College Sports I did what I said I would do. Let's watch.
