VERSUS will add 3 more Big 12, and 2 Ivy League games to the mix, as well as some possible Division II games.  VERSUS College Football coverage became quite legit last season, so we’ll see how they build on that.  It’d be big if they could land a bowl game.

    This is a good schedule for them. If they can add some more college basketball on weekends in Jan and Feb. they would be building very nicely. Another thing is I know they have rights to the new football league in the fall as well, if they could ever get NFL games it’s be huge.

    For all the smack talk that gets thrown Vs.’ way, it really is reminiscent of the early days of espn.

  3. Scotty says:

    Just an odd random poll for everyone. If Versus continues on the path of adding sports as they are now, Do you think they will be able to compete with ESPN? Obviouslly the first way to do that is to get in more households, which as they add more sports will help.

    Thing is, Versus actually can’t get any better football. Everything is spoken for long-term, unless they were to massively outbid FSN for the Pac-10 and Big 12 cable packages in the next year or two (namely getting the second-choice games after those which air on ABC).

    As for bowls, don’t go there… ESPN/ABC really do have pretty much all the ones worth watching- and plenty that aren’t IMHO!
