Yes, the PAC 12 will have the most technologically advanced broadcast facilities in college sports, the largest contract in college sports and its own sports network, but nothing, and I mean nothing compares to byu's HD truck.

Let's never forget.

Duckie (Mr. Blue "Exposure") is not gonna like this one bit. He may actually be shamed into making good on his promise to quit commenting on Ute stories.

LOL!

So the pac12 is trying to do what BYU has already done all by itself. Snd the pac12 is currently slated to be in less homes than BYUtv.

Congratulations?

Just like last year when ABC/ESPN ignored Utah, most of Utah's games will be relegated to subscription-only regional PAC 12 networks that only a few fans outside the PAC 12 will be interested in paying for.

Why do you care? Because you can now see the game live from Tulsa when you are on your annual "business trip".

lol at our little brothers who are so BYU-obsessed that they couldn't wait to compare themselves to big brother.

@Y's little brother
And yet here you are. That's ironical. Do you not see how hypocritical it is for you to call someone else obsessed while you are on a Utah article?
I'm sure people were just dying to see the epic division 2 match up between the Bengals of Idaho State and the Cougars from BYU on BYUtv. Just because it's on tv doesn't mean people are going to watch it. Exhibit A: BYU's bowl game.

@54-10

Actually it is quite a bit more often than "annual", it is more like 5-6 times per year. Of course Tulsa is not a particularly great destination but I make the most of it by playing 18 holes at Southern Hills with my associate who is a member.

"lol at our little brothers who are so BYU-obsessed that they couldn't wait to compare themselves to big brother".

Let's see, who is obsessing about who? You do realize your on a Utah article right? Obviously this shows how obsessed you are and how much you idolize your big brother Utah. How quickly they forget that they got curb stomped 54-10 on ESPN for the whole nation to see. Utah owns BYU in football winning two straight (soon 3), 7 of the last 10 games, and 56-34-4 in the overall series. Go ahead and have your temper tantrum and begging for attention like little brothers tend to do. But, we'll give you one last beating before we say good bye and good riddance.

@chicagoborn

But of course more people do watch games that actually are on tv.

LOL!

I got to watch 8 of the 9 Utah Football games that were broadcasted here in Philadelphia last Fall, and now I'll get to see all 13? That just went from "good" to "phenomenal"! And I won't even have to watch my team lining up opposite of half a season's worth of WACey opponents. AWESOME! Thanks Larry Scott.

Excellent observation!

obviously the real obsessed ones are the Utah fans dragging BYU into the discussion on an article that has absolutely nothing to do with BYU; the jealousy of the hill dwellers is hillarious

you must have some awfully big rabbit ears to be able to pick up KJZZ from philly

"the pac12 is currently slated to be in less homes than BYUtv."

Duckie, the difference is obvious. People with Pac12Net will actually want to watch a Pac12 game, instead of hunting for an obscure channel that features byu trying to win the Idaho State Championship.

"I make the most of it by playing 18 holes at Southern Hills with my associate who is a member."

So you were on a world-class golf course for 5 days after another epic beatdown? Right.

You're delusional if you think anybody outside of the Wasatch Front and the Front Range is looking forward to watching Colorado beat up on Utah again.

@johninslc

Well it may take you 5 days to hack your way through 18 holes but I can do it in about 4-5 hours.

Also left SLC on Sunday morning and returned Wednesday. Not quite 5 days.

phoenix:

Those games were broadcast on CBS, ESPN2, ESPNU, FSN [aka "Root Sports"], and the Vs. channel.

I'm going to have to call DirectTV about my service.

The HD on the BYU channel is not all that great. About as clear as the old Mtn channel.

Duck, for the Y fans in my household, please tap into some of your connections, can you have them tune up the truck or something?

Sportsfan:

I know all you cougie fans will be glued to Pac12Net in late November next year for a shred of solace--hoping against hope for CU to assuage the sting of the y suffering yet another September beatdown.

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure no self-respecting Ute fan will even care about watching your team try to repeat their WAC/Idaho state championship.
