Let me vent. For the second straight Saturday, the OU and OSU men’s basketball games go head-to-head on television. Last week, OSU played Texas A&M on ABC, with a start time about 20 minutes before the OU-Texas Tech game on the Big 12 Network. Today, it’s OU-Texas on ABC at 2:30 p.m., with OSU-Kansas at 3 p.m. on CBS.
That’s ridiculous. A ton of basketball fans would like to see both games. Last week, I tried something crazy — and it worked. I TiVo’d both games, but watched them at the same time. I started out with OSU, since the Cowboys tipped off first. After the OU game started, when a commercial arrived in the OSU game, I would jump to the OU game (from the start). So I would fast forward through commercials of both games and go back and forth. It certainly kept me on my toes, but I got to see both games in their virtual entirety.
This week is not so easy. Not that that was. Today, I’ll be at the Bedlam women’s game, which starts at 1 p.m. I thought about taping both men’s games, driving home from Lloyd Noble Center, write my column from home while watching both men’s games. But no way that would work. You can’t write AND watch two basketball games simultaneously. I don’t think.
Anyway, I wish these games were more spread out. But oh well. I’ll figure something out.
