FSN logo from 1997-2004Image via WikipediaThis is some of the best news that I have seen all day. This means that people that have DirecTV and watch college sports and NHL hockey on Fox Sports Net or Fox College Sports will not have an interruption of their service and will still be able to watch their favorite teams games if they have DirecTV.

Good news for Gopher and Sioux hockey fans that have DirecTV and are not able to attend this weekend’s game on Friday. Saturday’s game is on the Big Ten Network.

Brian Stelter; New York Times blog — Representatives for DirecTV and News Corporation said Monday evening that they had averted a looming blackout of regional sports networks, FX and other Fox-owned cable channels.

After warring in public for a week and a half, the two companies said they had come to a new contract agreement.

Sounds like something big coming down the pike from the Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe, I am guessing that the NCAA, UND and or the Big Sky is going to be party to a law suit. SayAnythingBlog.com and Plains Daily also has picked up on the story as well. I have no idea where this is going.

Chuck Haga; Grand Forks Herald —- Fighting Sioux nickname champions at Spirit Lake say they will make “a major announcement” Tuesday in their campaign to thwart retirement of the name and logo.

Members of the Committee for Understanding and Respect, acting with the blessing of the Spirit Lake Tribal Council, have scheduled a news conference at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Spirit Lake Tribal Headquarters in Fort Totten, N.D.

I was been reading the various message boards and I get a chuckle out of how Gopher fans love to bring up the Blake Wheeler goal against the Sioux in the Final Five, I have to give credit where credit is due, that was a great highlight goal, in fact it was one for the ages, that euphoria was short lived as a week later the Fighting Sioux got the last laugh with a great overtime winner in Denver.

The Bears-Lions game in Week 10 has been moved from a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff to a 4:15 p.m. ET kickoff.

Week 10 marks the start of the flexible scheduling that the NFL provides viewers with.

The Lions have six wins currently, while the Bears have four.

It could be a matchup between the 6-2 Lions and the 5-3 Bears depending on what the Bears do next Monday night against the Eagles. The Lions have a bye in Week Nine.

This could be one of the better games during Week 10, so the NFL made a wise choice by moving the game to a later kickoff at 4:15 p.m. ET.

The Bears will wear their alternate orange for the second and final time this season against the Lions.
