Tuesday night the Misery game ran long and you couldn’t find the Hog telecast on the ESPN app, so a lot of us didn’t see any of about the first 9 minutes until Misery finally won.
But there is a way to get around that. On the espn.com website, make sure Arkansas basketball is one of the teams you follow. Click the head in bubble on the right side of the black bar and you can add and adjust teams there. I follow Hog men’s hoops, women’s hoops and football (if they allowed the Diamond Hogs and others, I would, but so far that’s not an option).
Then, when we’re playing and it’s on an ESPN channel or ESPN+, it will put our game on the ESPN front page and you can watch the game from there instead of rummaging through the app. Which is what I did Tuesday while the Misery game dragged on.
Worked fine for me, is all I’m saying. Even though you couldn’t find it on the app, which clearly was a case of asleep at the wheel. Of course, you’ll be watching on your computer or phone unless you link that to your TV, but it’s better than not watching.
I’ve done that was well with football and basketball and play for me via the app was still no go.
Here is another kicker I just discovered. Generally when I miss a portion of the game I’ll go to the app and do a replay. Because whether it was broadcast or not they were recording it and I can generally watch the full game. I just went to watch the replay and it only has footage starting with about 4 min left in the 1st half to the end of the game. Someone somewhere dropped a big ball at ESPN that night.
