Just pasting this from Ft Collins thread.

So just to firm up and recap what we know .. please correct me if I get anything wrong.

Game is 2pm CST. You can always go to goredbirds site schedule to pick from radio options or do the stats option .. the stats option is surprisingly fast turnaround of plays .. faster than ESPN3 video signal if you can believe it.

But good to start talking about watch party options if you want to watch game ... per Goredbirds site, the game will be on AT&T Sportsnet .. along with some other more regional providers I'm assuming most of us do NOT have access to ... so I'm assuming AT&T Sportsnet is best option for bars. Chibird said above, you need accesss to the Rocky Mountain Region.

If you click the tunein icon on the goredbirds football schedule, it takes you a page with an icon called, Illinois State Redbirds Sports Network - Powered by Leerfield. If you click that icon, a box pops up that say: "this show will start saturday at 2pm". I don't know yet what to do from here .. but it is obviously a subscription beyond the ESPN one many of us just subscribed to for $5/month.

But again, I don't know what this Leerfield option gets you or costs you .. anyone know ???

I have an amazon fire stick with the FreeFLIX HQ app. It picks up Sportsnet as well as lots of other sports networks. ESPN 1 2 and 3. Big Sky, FSN 1 and 2 and many more. This is how I thumb my nose at the cable networks!!! Only place I know to watch live sports. MLB ,NBA, and NFL network! :dance: :dance: :dance:

Talked with DirecTV tonight - it is Channel 683 and it takes their Sport Pack Package - $8.99 per month. I made sure, I will have the game on.

I'm thinking over at 58 and I'm giving our Redbirds 50/50 chance to win. They were decent a year ago .. very very good on offense, but weak on defense. Their offense lost about 7 starters, then their HC had health scare right before season .. so they had bit to overcome to start season.

We had 2 weeks to prepare, and they most certainly did not have this game circled on their calendar nearly as much as we did on ours. They have already played 4 FBS games, going 1-3 .. so they will be a little banged up presumably. Though our 2 easy tune-up games probably weren't best prep for an FBS .. we will be rested and healthy walking into this game by comparison to CSU.

No common opponents, but 2 steps removed we have Arkansas as common opponent of opponent .. Arkansas has played both EIU and CSU. We beat EIU worse than Arkansas did ... stats had our defense almost identical to what Arkansas gave up, but our offense way outperformed Arkansas against EIU .. by 150 total yards .. granted 97 came on one play. So Arkansas had CSU beat until CSU went on 24-0 run starting late in Q3 to win 34-27.. apparently Arkansas is also not good at prevent, but CSU did explode for alittle over a quarter .. otherwise, they would be sitting 0-4.

They have advantage of being home at 5,000 elevation they are used to ... I hope we prepare and game plan more overtly. I get Spack's psychology about not letting his players use that as excuse ... but science is science ... plan for it.

Hard to know what to make of our offense given who we've played .. InSU put up 55 points on EIU at EIU, though only won by 14. We started subbing lilberally after 3 quarters. Also unsure what to make of defense having played 2 weaker teams. Their HC has had a lot of success building offenses, so it is probably just a matter of time for a reload/rebuild for them on offense.

That said, I have to pick my Redbirds in what looks like 50/50 contest .. but higher scoring game into 30 's ... unless we get gassed trying to ignore elevation .. need to slow game down on offense, for our defense.

Redbirds win 34-31

For what it's worth, Arkansas got smacked by North Texas this week 44-17 at home. That devalues Colorado State's win over Arkansas to me.

In fairness, North Texas is 3-0 and has whooped SMU, Incarnate Word, and Arkansas. I just hope one of these ways works so I can watch it!

Brock said on his show that after the EIU game some of the Panther players told our players that they thought we were tougher than Arkansas. I know, it's not worth much but it's still good to hear.

North Texas will probably run the table and dominate the rest of the year, only to be delegated to some second tier bowl game by the P5 syndicate.

Also on Directv channel 674 (in addition to 683) if you have the SportsPack. They quoted me $13.99/month for this package.

Can the alumni Association figure out which bar, if any, will have the game on in the Chicagoland area? Any watch parties?

I added the Multisport package ($13 mo.) to my Dish acct so I can get the game and I'm planning a watch party at my place in Springfield. Just so you know I like to watch the game on my couch in comfort so I normally wear a thong. I'll be serving Old Style with sunflower seeds and pistachio nuts. You are free to spit seeds or throw shells on the floor. PM if interested.

Well Total Red - I certainly hope the throng is Red - ha, ha, ha.

The people that come to my house in Normal to watch Redbird events - know we sing the fight song, followed by a shot of whiskey - at various times before, during, and after the game!!!!

On fubu TV the stadium channel don't show the game on the main channel or the three alternates.
