BCSN and Live High School Football

It looks like BCSN stopped televising live High School Football Games. They do run taped games, but I wonder why the live stuff stopped?

Central vs. Whitmer this week would have been a good one to go live.

Central live streams their games, although last week there was a glitch and there was no sound.

I am thinking either they can't afford to go live anymore or something is going on with OHSAA. Seems weird they would show High School volley ball ... and a replay at that....

Buckeye CableSystem Sports Network - BCSN - has not stopped televising live high school football games, but the Ohio High School Athletic Association prohibits televising or streaming live games on Friday nights. The Whitmer vs. Central game is a Friday night game and so we can't present it live. If you are a fan of Whitmer or Central, however, you can watch the game on tape delay because we are covering that game this week and broadcasting it on Saturday @ noon on BCSN and Saturday at 10pm on BCSN2.

BCSN will present 7 live Thursday night games this season. The next live game is Bowsher at Rogers on Oct. 1st at 7 p.m. on BCSN. And, of course, we we are excited to present 4 to 5 high school games every week on tape delay.

Thanks for tuning in to BCSN for the best coverage of local sports.

Molsonator, Central will be live streaming the game on Ustream CCHS Sports Network. The audio will be what you would hear if you were sitting in the stands (you will not be able to hear Bill Clark (the radio announcer that broadcasts the Central games).

I will too. Haven't missed a game in 4 years. Great group of kids/athletes. My son (senior) runs the video board and does the livestreaming. Stop by and say HI. I sit at the 40 yrd line, at the railing, red shirt, gray vest and green shamrock beads!
