      They are airing HS hockey at 7pm because the Bucks coverage starts at 830 pm. The Denver game is set for after that (midnightish).
      Considering the Bucks are the hottest team in the Eastern conference right now, that is understandable. I bought my Brandon Jennings jersey a few weeks ago.

        More alumni info - I was watching the Caps and the Canes this evening, and young Mr. McBain looked pretty good on the blue line for Carolina. Had a couple nice plays, showed off his heavy shot, and generally impressed Washington's PBP crew. Even got a few college hockey shout outs for it.

        McBain had a few hiccups on offense - bad breakout passes leading to turnovers, etc - but all in all a solid performance for him.

          The decision has nothing to do with the Bucks being the hottest team in the east. The decision was made before last season when FSWis went from about 40 Bucks games per season to 70. That knocked about 10 Badger games off FSWis.

          So, I get why but that doesn't mean I'm happy about it. I don't really care about the Bucks and wish they weren't on.

          At one point in late February, the Badgers had a larger average attendance than the Bucks. That's impressive for UW fans and pretty sad reflection on the apathy Milwaukee has for the Bucks.

          And I get the FCS package, so it's a matter of expressing my preference to FS. I'll still get to see the games live...

              The Milwaukee Bucks have a larger television audience, though. That's the problem. Milwaukee people like hockey, by the way. They just don't tend to like Badger hockey because they have allegiances to other crappy schools like Marquette with no hockey program. If we could ever get the NHL to Milwaukee and get some former Badgers on the roster, that could change in my opinion.

                Do they have the larger audience in Madison though? They already program FSNWi out of Minneapolis and split the feed for WI for UW events. Why can't they split it for Madison and Milwaukee?

                  I believe that they moved the FSNWI decision making to Milwaukee a few years back, thus the change towards a more Milwaukee dominated programing choices over the past few years.

                    I'm cutting out of work early today to see the UW Hockey game. I'll only be checking the BB game periodically. Now I better get back to work so I can leave early....

                      I checked the program guide on my cable box last night and FS-Wisconsin will at the very least be showing the Badgers play this afternoon. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can get out of work to watch it, but have the DVR set to record it in case.

                        FSN North has every game "featuring" Frank & Doug. I'm pretty sure it's on all satellite & cable companies. DISH 436 (SD). Direct Tv ?

                            Yeah, I don't have Dish or Direct TV, I'm stuck with a crappy, expensive cable plan for the time being and have a pretty limited selection of sports options, which blows.

                              That sounds like a good business idea. Should I provide you the FSN email contact? I completely agree.
