    Don't worry, they won't have anything to cheer about in Fairfax this season.

    I think he was talking about the odor they bring, as well.

    How could you not love VCU at home on a weekend? Just buy a bunch of tickets for you and your friends. I really like this schedule. Starting on the road at URI is kind of brutal but I'd rather get it out of the way.

    7 TV games so far. Figuring the Louisville game will be on TV or ESPN3
    Wonder if the Big 10 Network will work something out for the Penn St game since they typically don't have rights to road games.
    Auburn on SEC Network?
    FoxSports in Ohio usually airs all of Dayton's games (could be a MASN produced game that gets picked up in Ohio).
    Figure MASN/CSN will pick up a few (hopefully @ JMU)

    Now that Greene Turtle in Fx is out of business, in your opinion what is the best place to watch Mason games. Brions and Oh Georges aren't exactly sports bars with big TVs. Maybe Buffalo Wild Wings, but that's out past camp washington.

    I'm just trying to find a place better than my phone to watch the games against Louisville and Auburn and at VCU (I refuse to go to a game there again).

    I'm sure I'm wrong and turning 40 has hurt my memory but seems like we used to get more games on TV when in the CAA.

    Don't networks tend to add more games at the last minute?

    We were one of the marquee programs in the CAA. Barring something catastrophic, we'll be on TV plenty starting next season and going forward.

    Do they show Mason games? I've never watched a game there.

    Keep in mind that there's a bajillion tv networks that carry basketball games nowadays compared to even 10 years ago. I'm sure many of the games will be on TV, its just a matter of which games get regional coverage or a national game. I did like that they would post a graphic of what channel the game would be on in each area last year.

    We will have way more tv games than what is currently listed - I think this is actually pretty good that we have so many listed at this point when the schedule is released. We are low on the totem poll, so we will have to wait to see how things shake out nationally before more tv/streaming coverage is added. That is a big reason why most games don't have times (to allow for flexibility with time slots).

    Brions may not be the best sports bar, but I've found sitting at the bar works just fine. I try to go there because we don't have enough local places that support the program to not reward the ones that do.

    Also the staff at Oh George is a bunch of c***s.

    I'm almost always down for meeting up around Fairfax to catch away games, especially Auburn and Louisville.

    I think the only place I have seen a successful game watch was at Greene Turtle, Brion's doesn't seem to put much effort into game watches (that I'm aware of). Brion's, Hard Times, BW's and even Red Hot and Blue are probably best options -up to us to organize and get a good group out though.

    Is it clams? Are they a bunch of clams?

    Or is it colts?
