Great game so far!

Three comments: with less than a minute to go, we lost the signal and missed the end of the game. At half-time, the gal interviewing coach Foster asked about an OSU player in “foul trouble” (she had 2 fouls). Foster gave an accurate response: “she’s not in foul trouble” and you know what? She wasn’t. Also, the guy calling the game said that “Mich. touched it last”. No, Mich. got the ball. Let’s have more accurate reporting.

    Thanks for the comment Don. We temporarily lost he satellite signal because of storms/severe weather here in Indy. Hailstorm earlier today, now under tornado watch. Appreciate your understanding.

Max on 3/2/2012 @ 3:00pm EDT Said:

Easy there Don, It’s not too hard to watch the game and enjoy. Don’t let the broadcasters ruin your day.🙂

Max on 3/2/2012 @ 8:20pm EDT Said:

Exciting game! Minny played great, but you knew they would. It’s the B1G tourney!
Keep going Lady Lions!

It would be helpful if the play-by-play announcers would state who received the foul when called and also how many they have. Also, the number of team fouls that each team has. It that is not possible, then show it at the bottom of the screen. I only saw that done once today while watching the games.
