I watched it. The broadcast was okay. They showed some high lites and some recorded interviews. The one problem I saw was they did the pre-game broadcast while the game was on TV. I’m trying to watch this pre-game broadcast on my computer while watching the game they are talking about on TV at the same time.

Hi @AFCAT
I'm sorry to hear you thought the event was just ok. I wanted to address one of your concerns about the timing of the event. We have been working with the Big Sky Conference to find rebroadcast times for MSU Bobcat Football games, and they have worked directly with ROOT, Pluto, and SWX to provide us with game times. We were told that the football game would be on at 12:00 PM MST and therefore set a time of 11:00 AM MST for BroadCATS. The University of Montana received the same information as us; games would be on at noon MST, rotating UM/MSU games every other weekend. I'm not quite sure what happened; I'm guessing with so many unknowns of what actual games are on, they are juggling programming and adjusted the timing. At that point, we had already marketed our event and received hundreds of RSVP's. I am sorry that the two events were simultaneous; it was not our intent and was entirely out of our control. We went with the information we were provided. It has been challenging to get game information, we had requested a Root game or Pluto game be shown since they have better reach. We didn't find out about the Pluto game until the week of the event, and unfortunately, we do need the notice to pull all the pieces together.

If you have other suggestions for how the event could be better, please let me know. We are trying our best to figure out a new normal and still offer various options appealing to a broad group of alumni and fans.

Thanks!

Impossible to catch it on Saturday, had a bit of family visiting. Is there a way to view it now?

No need to apologize. I didn't find it to be that big of an issue, just strange at the time. Tough to give full attention to two broadcasts that are happening at the same time, that's why I referred to the Cats broadcast as "okay." Oh, I won free t-shirt, so all is good. :D
