Tailgate 48: See Our Visit to Iowa

Thursday night at 7 p.m. ET on Tailgate 48 presented by Omaha Steaks our crew brings you the sights and sounds from their tailgate weekend at Iowa before and during the game against Michigan. In addition to their usual coverage of the fans before the game and the game itself, this week our hosts Julie Alexandria and Jason Fisher serve up a number of great moments.

They include:

  • Julie meets Tim Dwight, who starred in track and football at Iowa.
  • Jason explores the student Union and the student-run radio station, then test Iowa fans with football trivia questions.
  • Julie visits one of the cafeterias and talks with students about dorm life.
  • Jaime Printy, star shooting guard for Iowa’s women’s basketball team, plays H-A-W-K-S with Jason during their interview.
  • Jason interviews Kirk Ferentz the day before the big game against Michigan.
  • Julie visits with the Hawkeyes cheerleading team and tries a stunt or two with them to see if she has what it takes.
  • Jason talks to legendary Hawkeyes wrestling coach Dan Gable.

Is there anywhere online where I could watch the complete episode, or buy a copy of the episode from BTN?

I’m looking more specifically for the interview with “Joe Dirt” from the Iowa tailgate episode.

    It airs again at 10:30 ET tonight, if you’d like to watch or DVR it.

And once again this broadcast had the beginning preempted as well. It’s been this all this week. Was there ANY complete airing of this show? Pretty LAME BTN!

And this page has a bug in it too. You have to tab to this field on a Mac in Safari or other browsers. If you try to click on it to edit it, it won’t let you enter any text.

It seems you should have ended the Big Ten Breakdown show early at this time as it is being repeated tons of times tonight while this Tailgate show hasn’t really had a complete showing yet. If you don’t want to ever air this, just put it on the web site instead of on BTN network. Seems like Iowa always plays second fiddle on this network this season.

    Thanks, Mike. We’ll look into that browser bug. That’ he first we’ve heard of it and we tested this out before launch. As for the pre-empting of the show, the extraordinary news events of last week required us to juggle quite a bit of scheduling. We thank you for your understanding. I’m not sure if the complete show aired, however you’re welcome to contact our BTN customer service team here for a better understanding of how those things work.

Is there a way to find out when this will air again soon? I have missed the shows before. Thanks.

    BTN.com staff on 11/17/2011 @ 7:09pm EDT Said:

    Emily, yes there is. You can watch it on BTN2go.com if you TV carrier provides BTN2Go. Thanks!

Cindy on 11/17/2011 @ 8:16pm EDT Said:

Can you post the Tailgate48-Iowa on the BTN.com web site? I do not have BTN2go.com. Post a link for this show on line, please.

    BTN.com staff on 11/17/2011 @ 8:20pm EDT Said:

    We can’t do that for a number of reasons. BTN2Go is where we have those episodes. If you get BTN on TV, we encourage you to contact your TV provider and get them to offer it. Thanks.
