Duke-Maryland at 1:30 p.m.

Just got word that Duke will play Maryland at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 24.

The game will be streamed live on --- I'm shocked! -- ESPN360.com, the unofficial television home on the Maryland Terrapins!

Both D'Quell Jackson (2nd) and EJ Henderson are on the leader board for tackles thus far this year.

I'm sick of ESPN360. I can never get it to load properly on the first (or second or third) try. And yeesh, the announcing talent is so bad that it makes me pine for the Raycom/Jefferson Pilot split.

I didn't mind it so bad this past Saturday. It was my first experience watching a Maryland game on the computer network and aside from the blank screens where commercials should have aired (not realy a complaint, just a comment), the broadcast was decent. They do seem to be really bad with showin the down and distance on the screen (wrong more often than not), and the 10 second delay from the radio broadcast, which is probably delayed 5-10 seconds itself, is pretty annoying when the broadcasters are virtually clueless.

The broadcast quality was certainly better than I expected with only a few "sputters" at the very beginning and it looked about as good as a CSN standard def. broadcast on my 42" HDTV. I was surprised though at the number of high quality matchups in the next week that will be shown exclusively on this network (half of the ACC schedule next week is on ESPN360). ESPN is clearly putting a lot of money behind the product, but it's not better than regular TV, but when your team is not on TV, it's a serviceable alternative.

I wish I did not have to listen to Wake announcers. I watched the second half on mute. Better pass defense would have helped too.

It would be nice if the university tried to pressure ESPN into putting our games on tv...perhaps encouraging fans to contact them, provide a number/email for those upset with this to contact. Seriously, don't just sit around and do nothing DEBBIE.

Yow and fans have no say in the matter. The ACC entered into this contract with ESPN, and reduced the number of games Raycom could broadcast. Yow cannot just go out on her own and enter into a contract with another entity to get Terps games on TV. John Swofford is the only one who can change the situation, and I don't think that's going to happen since the ACC got the best deal it could considering its pathetic set of football teams. With the SEC taking up just about every slot on ESPN's Saturday schedule (and rightfully so) becuse of that MONSTER deal making ESPN the official network of the SEC, every other college football game has to take a back seat to the only real college football league in the country.

Russtinator, you misunderstood my comment. I was saying Yow and the athletic dept should be encouraging fans to contact ESPN to pressure them to put the games on tv. Obviously I wasn't saying Yow could enter into another contract with another entity buddy.
