Discussion Topic: State Tournament TV coverage
Leo Zimmer added to this discussion on March 12, 2017

I know this post will make me sound like a "get off my lawn" old guy but...

I ranted on Twitter during the OHSAA football finals about the piss poor TV coverage for the games, and now I will do the same here regarding wrestling.

To the best of my knowledge, nothing will be shown until this coming Thursday and Friday. Not only a week later, but it will compete directly with NCAA basketball and wrestling coverage.

Not to mention, those with Direct TV, Dish Network and some cable providers, can't even access the channel (Spectrum Sports) that is broadcasting it.

Way to go OHSAA...

Leo: It's ridiculous that in this day and age we can't watch the entire state wrestling meet let alone the finals. You are right to rant.

You're right, Leo.

Mark and I are just doing our "Dumb and Dumber" routine...🙂

Does anybody have spectrum sports channel that would be willing to record and somehow get a copy to me?? I'd love to have them recorded. You miss a lot in the tunnel -- including sadly your own athletes matches.

Guys -- our camera kid forgot to charge the battery for the video recorder and thus only recorded the parade of champions before the battery died. SO -- he didn't get ANY of the finals matches taped.

Does anybody on here have any way of getting these onto a DVD (or in digital form) that I could get a hold of?

Brady, I request that they send me a copy of the shows on DVD. If that happens, I can try to copy them for you.

Ryan - that would be fantastic. IF you can, let me know and I'll pay for any costs you incur.

You'd be totally bailing out the delinquent camera kid. ha ha

M-Rod -- here a link to Jeff Woo's youtube page. He has many many matches from the past 4+ years of the state tournament finals. Sadly for me, none of the ones I want can be found there.

Ah, Jeff Woo. I've looked at a lot of those over the years. Speaking of Woo, we had an argument back when I was coaching, he told me that a cross face couldn't go across the face. True story.

When I'm on bottom, I'd agree.

Sadly, finals were taken on cameras other than mine.
