PAC-12 network launches on August 15, 2012 – UCLA already has 39 games scheduled for the fall

I’m super excited that the PAC-12 is getting its own network. I love watching all sorts of college sports on TV and hopefully this channel will give me all I can eat.

 

 

More fans will see more UCLA sports on more channels than ever before when the Pac-12 Networks launches on August 15. So far, there are 39 UCLA fall games scheduled to be televised live on the Pac-12 Networks – one so far in football, 12 in men’s soccer, nine in women’s soccer, 14 in women’s volleyball and three in men’s water polo.

Watch the video to get a taste of what will be on the network. To learn if you will get Pac-12 Networks from your TV provider visit the Pac-12 Networks Channel Finder.

Euro 2012 – the World Cup for Europe – is on ESPN

If you’re interested in soccer/football then these games are for you. The level of play and passion is so similar to the World Cup you might not notice a difference.

All 31 games will be broadcast on ESPN, more than 200 hours, beginning Friday, June 8, through Sunday, July 1.

The schedule.

 

Euro 2012 being co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine got under way on Friday as European football’s showpiece international competition came behind the former Iron Curtain for the first time.

The month-long festival of football started with a 20-minute opening ceremony in front of a capacity 50,000 crowd at Warsaw’s National Stadium, combining music and dance celebrating the eastern European countries’ rich heritage.

Co-hosts Poland take on Greece, the surprise winners of the 2004 competition, in the first of 31 games at eight venues in the two countries, with the final in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, on July 1.

Hordes of colourful fans and half-naked female protestors descended on a rain-soaked Warsaw Friday ahead of the kick-off.

C-SPAN video online, digitized and shareable, is this C-SPAN 2.0?

Something amazing has happened over at C-SPAN. In their Archives division they have put online 25 years worth of video covering American culture and politics.

Even better the website was done by JESS3, which means that it is top-notch. This includes best videos of the day, month, and forever (by views). Plus, most shared videos, embeddable spots, an interactive schedule, a page for each member of congress, and more.

It’s pretty incredible…now I just need to find a way to add civic programming into my all-entertainment schedule.

Every C-SPAN program aired since 1987, now totaling over 170,000 hours, is contained in the C-SPAN Archives and immediately accessible.

**Update: 2012 UCLA Football Schedule is available.

 
Training camp starts in just a few days on August 8.

This year the Bruins return a ton of starters (offense-seven, defense-eight) but the question is, as always, the quarterback.

Kevin Prince is set to start and then get injured, so Patrick Brehaut or Brett Hundley will get a chance.

Here is the full schedule, including available TV listings, but the weird thing is all the later games have no set time yet.
