Television Coverage

For those not making the trip to South Bend- unlike Robert of Blah, Blah, Blah and Kenny of Westsider Rider- and who will be watching the game on TV, here are a couple of things to keep in mind. The game is being televised on NBC Sports at 3:30 p.m. EDT. When you set your TiVo make sure that you do not forget that that the pre-game show starts at 3:00 p.m. EDT. The NBC game announcers will be Tom Hammond (play-by-play), Pat Haden (color analyst) and Lewis Johnson (sideline reporter). Although this is a top-notch crew, Michigan fans need to remember that NBC is the Notre Dame Football Network. Therefore, the announcers tend to present the game in the light most favorable to the Fighting Irish. That could get annoying after awhile. Michigan fans may be better served by turning off the sound of their television sets and turning on their radios so they can listen to the broadcast of Frank Beckmann (play-by-play), Jim Brandstatter (color analyst) and Doug Karsch (sideline reporter). As long as you are going to listen to "homerism" it might as well be "homerism" for the team for which you are rooting. Locally, you can catch the radio broadcast on 104.3 (WOMC-FM) or 1050 (WTKA-AM). If you do not live in the metro-Detroit area, you can click here to find a local affiliate that will broadcast static-less in your area. Go Blue!
