Seriously? No Badgers for a third week?

Remember this weekend how I was whining about not being able to see the Badgers take on Indiana? Because the game was being shown on the Big Ten Network?

But I was somewhat OK with the game not being televised on my local cable carrier, if only because I would be able to see the Ohio State and Michigan games.

Well, apparently I spoke too soon. Because when Bucky takes on the Buckeyes on Saturday, a match up with the No. 1 ranked team in the country, I won't be able to watch it from the comfort of my recliner. Because the Big Ten Network snagged the game. And my cable company won't carry the channel. Grr.

*Angry*

Here I thought I would be able to contain my anger about this channel until the basketball season kicks off. Apparently not.

It looks like I'm going to either have to find some friends with a dish that gets this crappy channel or else I'll have to ditch my cable and affix a dish to the outside of my apartment. Because missing my Badgers? That's unacceptable.

I hope Wisconsin can beat Ohio State. Are they still ranked?

Rankings? Take your pick:

#21 in BCS standings
#19 in the USA Today poll
Just outside of the AP's Top 25

Totally unacceptable! I feel your pain!

Yeah - try being on the other side (a fan of the #1 team) and being in this position.

Stupid f'ing Big Ten Network.
