Can We Get Cal/Oregon St. On TV?

The question is: Can we get Comcast to Broadcast the Bears/Oregon St. game--at least on Tape Delay? The following e-mail might suggest it is possible, if enough interest is shown. I received it from Richard Curtis. You might e-mail Comcast and show your interest. Pass it on. Who knows?Are we the new (or have we always been--remember the Rose Bowl and Texas) the Rodney Dangerfield of College Ball? What do Virginia Tech, Boston College, Texas, Georgia and Iowa all have in common with Cal and Arizona St.?They played "cream puffs" last week and all advanced in the rankings. Cal and ASU were the only teams not to move up. THis might let you know what voters think about the Bears and the Pac 10 in General. Even Oregon's great win has been tarnished.Here's a note from Sanyika. Anyone can go to this site except Andy. He's still got mouths to feed.Ras is looking for a ticket to Oregon St. and Washington St. His e-mail is bearras@msn.com Read the following e-mail and let 'em know your thoughts. Kately with Bozeman at Morgan St. ? How do they find one another?Go Bears,Jeffrey Earl Warren '70Please check out the new websitewww.jeffwarren.com/------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Of possible interest.Dick----- Original Message ----- From: SportsNet West To: Richard Curtis Sent: Thursday, September 21, 2006 11:32 AMSubject: RE: Cal/Oregon State game Sept.30Good Morning Richard-Thank you for your recent e-mail. We are currently trying to gain access to that game. I can tell you that it will not be a live broadcast if we are successful as it would conflict with another sporting event on CSN West. We have had a few requests for this game, we would like to at least bring to our fans on tape delay if possible. Thank You and have a great day!Karen Mason(E-mail address) SportsNet_West@cable.comcast.comComcast SportsNet West-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here's some stuff from Greg:The Oregon State game (Sept. 30) will not be televised, and kick-off will be at 1:05 pm from Corvallis. The Arizona State game this weekend will be televised by Fox Sports Net and will mark the fourth game of the year to be on TV (Tennessee was on ESPN, Minnesota on TBS and Portland State on Comcast Sports). In addition, Oregon (ABC), UCLA (ABC), USC (ABC) and Stanford (Fox Sports Net) will be televised. The remainder of the games could be televised, but full broadcast schedules have not been determined.

Friday night before the OSU game: Dinner at Tyee Winery with Sandy Barbour Time: 5:30pm meet, bus leaves at 6pm Meet at: Hilton Garden Inn 2500 SW Western Blvd, Corvallis, OR. Enjoy the serenity of Oregon by joining an intimate group of Cal fans for an evening of delicious gourmet dinner, wine tasting, music, beautiful views of the Oregon landscape and vineyards, and then complimentary wine throughout the evening. Athletic Director Sandy Barbour will join us for the entire evening. Erin also posts to me: "About Alumni Band Day last week... it went really well on Saturday. The alums seemed to like the peace sign during "Imagine" by John Lennon, and of course they really loved the script California. I was the Alumni Drum Major in the gold hat and dotted the first "i" !!! Next week against ASU is High School Band Day, so be ready to see about 2000 high school marchers out on the field during halftime. It's quite a sight." It turns out that Oklahoma DID get the shaft from PAC-10 officials on Sat. Per an article below, "The Pacific-10 Conference, finding merit in Oklahoma's complaints about the officiating in its loss to Oregon, issued a one-game suspension Monday to the officiating crew and the instant replay officials who worked the game and an apology to the Sooners. The Ducks won the game 34-33 after scoring two touchdowns in the final 72 seconds. "Errors clearly were made and not corrected, and for that we apologize to the University of Oklahoma, coach Bob Stoops and his players," Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen said in a statement. "They played an outstanding college football game, as did Oregon, and it is regrettable that the outcome of the contest was affected by the officiating." After the Sooners' practice Monday night, Stoops said the apology brought him no satisfaction......"
"Marquise Kately, who left the Cal basketball program last fall after two seasons, has enrolled at Morgan State, where he will play for ex-Golden Bears coach
