This must just be my day for scratching my head and going--huh?
So, the Vols are taking on in-state rival Memphis this evening in basketball. The Vols are 11-2 overall, 2-1 in SEC play and could crack the top 25 if we keep playing well. Oh yeah, we also beat Texas on their court by 20 back in December. Memphis is the number four team in the land and has shown the potential to be a great team come post-season tournament time.
So why oh why is this game not on TV?
I can get that when the schedule came out pre-season that ESPN and company might not want to carry the game. But now that the game has more potential than it originally did, why has no one picked it up? (I'm thinking of FOX Sports SouthEast here or CSS here!) I mean, if we can get Kentucky taking on every cupcake on the schedule on regional TV why can't we at least get this game that has the potential to be very good and, at the least, a very entertaining game? Surely FOX SS has the ability to pick up and drop games on the fly.
I bet if it was Kentucky playing, this game would be on national TV and Dick Vitale would be there...
