2019 NCAA March Madness TV Schedule

The field is set, the bracket filled out, now what? Consider this our annual observation that while the tournament is a singular phenomenon in the US sports calendar, it’s also not exactly what we hope in the sports bar biz.

The included downloadable schedule is for the full tournament run. We have the teams and rankings for the Play-in and Round of 64 games.

How to Prep Your Sports Bar for NCAA Spring Football

It’s March and spring doesn’t feel very close, but we’ve got an idea about how to warm it up. Why not promote some NCAA Football? What? NCAA Football? It’s not August. Actually, the spring is one of the most entertaining peculiarities of NCAA Football -- the Spring Games. There’s a bunch of fun rituals that surround the games and if you are a fan club location, this game is essential for driving some cheap traffic in April or May. There are a total of 130 NCAA FBS teams and each of them has a spring game featured on their calendars. Unfortunately, they aren’t all televised, but the bigger programs do air on their various conference based networks. Think the SEC Network, where you will see South Carolina, Arkansas and Florida’s spring game live, including on campus programming. The middle-tiered teams [...]

When Major League Baseball began the Wild Card Game in 2012, they wanted to include more teams with a chance to make the playoffs.

This year we have two divisional titles on the line. At 1pm ET Milwaukee goes to Chicago to determine who will win the NL Central and then at 4pm ET, Colorado heads to [...]

Football Preview for October 17-23

The second half of the full NCAA season begins this week and there are some good matchups, but frankly, it’s a soft week in general. The NFL has some more potent games for the schedule and the primetime games are all really strong this week. Both the CFL and English Premier League have full slates of games as well. Week 8 of the NCAA season isn’t filled with great matchups but there are some games that will generate interest. Between ranked opponents, there is only one game this week with (19) Michigan going to Happy Valley to take on (2) Penn St at 7:30pm ET. Unfortunately, the classic rivalry game between USC and Notre Dame is on at the exact same time and is the other best matchup of the day. Conference play continues with just 5 weeks of regular [...]

What a great week of football, both College and Pro. There were superbly played games, fantastic finishes, and political turmoil; and that’s good for our business.
