When John projected the television schedule yesterday, he hit the Louisville nail on the head and was pretty close regarding the FSU and Wagner games. It’s great to see that the FSU game has the ABC slot potential, but more than likely, this will be bumped to John’s original ESPNU slot.
So far, so good on the scheduling front! Aside from avoiding nooners, anything you’re hoping for with the rest of the schedule? Let us know in the comments.
