What the hell is BTN thinking? Tape-delayed? What is this, 1979?
Release from OSU:
Spring Game TV, Radio, Internet & Tix Info
No live television broadcast of the game; WBNS 97.1 FM The Fan will carry it live
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State’s 2013 LIFESports Spring Game, presented by Nationwide and set for 1 p.m. April 13 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, will not have a live television broadcast, but it will feature a fun and exciting NFL venue for those going to the game, live radio, live streaming video on the internet and tape delayed coverage on the Big Ten Network later that evening. Here are all the broadcast details:
§ The Big Ten Network will tape and then televise the game at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 13;
§ WBNS 97.1 FM The Fan, the flagship station for the IMG Ohio State sports radio network, will broadcast the game live with Paul Keels and Jim Lachey describing all of the action;
§ Network affiliate WDJO AM-1480 out of Cincinnati will also carry the live radio broadcast, as will Sirius XM (channel TBD); and
§ The game can be watched live on the internet via the Big Ten Network’s BTN2Go online video stream.

They really screwed this up this year.
absolute bull$hit buckeye nation deserves better than this.
Well if this is the B10 Network decision, then a competent AD would remind them that there wouldn't be a B10 network if not for OSU.
In fact I would threaten to leave as I am sick of splitting revenues equally with the likes of Mn, PU, Iowa who add nothing.
We are far and away the major reason for the B10 Networks success,
We should pull a Texas on their ass.
But Jeans doesn't have chops.
Yes, a competent AD would threaten to leave the school's largest income over a spring game being televised. /fail.
You are really, really out there today.. even more so than your usual bonerfied man crush statements.
Cdiddy can now watch the game and snuggle with Gene.
CDiddy's act of blaming Gene Smith for everything is getting old.
This is not a fail. The Spring game is a glorified practice. In the words of Allen Iverson, "We talkin about practice?"
Unless I had a chance to go to the Spring "game" live, it is just like a Bucknuts practice reports. I actually feel like we get more tidbits from those reports. I don't really care who gets the Bam Childress award.
Cleveland Orchestra Baby!! World's greatest!! The Brown's wet dream is to be them. The Ohio State University-Where the Illibuck Lives!
Guess I can't get on Bucknuts or Twitter when it starts.
You're on to something here.
Perhaps he wants him fired so they have more alone time. Typical spouse being jealous of a time consuming career, sounds about right.
I was first mad to hear the game is in cincy and now no live coverage.. Count me in on being officially pissed now!
Who's Zead..Zeads dead baby.
I'm glad it is on at 7pm. I will be able to watch it! Wouldn't be able to see it live.
I wonder if there is some kind of trade off going on here at BTN.
Last year only OSU and I think Michigan were shown live. Everyone else was tape delayed.
I wonder if someone else is getting the live look in this year.
You would think from a ratings standpoint it would be a no brainier to have the BTN do the game live. Not to mention probably more will watch on tv this year since its in Cincy.
I can't imagine that Ohio State is projecting the spring game to be a positive revenue stream. So this is a way to get more people to the game and make more money off. I don't know what Mike Brown's charging for the stadium, but if history is a indication then it's not cheap. I'm sure the BTN made the decision, but the probability of it helping ticket sales left Ohio State in a position to not object too much.
Well no live tv stinks but at least it will be on tv later
(Sorry if I'm being reasonable)
This works out great! Watch the Masters and follow that with the Spring game. I hope it rains so I won't feel guilty about spending the day on the couch.
I have to wait 6 hours to watch a scrimmage?!? Occupy Jeans' Office.
Undefeated, possible top 5 team, gets the best ratings, your conferences best asset...yeah, let's put them on tape delay.
