Saturday is the 101st meeting between Michigan and Ohio State. ABC usually televises this thing nationally, or at least to most of the country. Not this year. Instead, “the Game” is splitting time with the WTF Bowl featuring Virginia and Georgia Tech. As of this writing, ABC hasn’t bothered to say what regions get which game. Curious.
I wonder if it has anything to do with the ESPN’s (abc’s sister network in the Disney empire) expose on rampant academic fraud and graft at OSU this week. OSU responded by telling Gameday to GTF out of Columbus, from which they had planned to broadcast their hype show on Saturday.
At least I can get it on the radio, if TPTB give us ACC dreck instead of smashmouth feetsball.
