Is there Redcast Video coverage for this game or is it going to be blacked out b/c of TV coverage?

Yes to Recast (audio). Not sure on video. But believe it is blacked.

If the video is blacked out (and I suspect, like you, it will be), then that is ridiculous. This is the second game of the season that this is happening and the first stinking conference game of the season. People who buy the Cornell basketball redcast aren't casual fans, like one could be of a Duke or other big name program, they genuinely want to see the games and pay money for it. They should offer some alternative or rebate because of this, and not expect that because it is televised one would have access to it.

Understand your complaint, but this is not the fault of Cornell.

This is an Ivy League-NBC Sports TV deal. And frankly, you know and I know thatthe tv deal is more important in the grand scheme (for Cornell and the Ivy League) than your Redcast package. And even with a rebate, you would probably still be upset.

NBC Sports is a very popular channel. Go to a sports bar and watch the game there. Most bars have NBC Sports. Just plan ahead and call a few places to see if they will accommodate you. I am sure you'll get to see the game.
