MAC sports, not just football, will now be available in bigger markets in the Midwest in addition to western and central areas of New York, now thanks to Time Warner Cable Company. Because of the new deal, the MAC receives some much-needed exposure in football, basketball, baseball, softball, and soccer for both men and women. There will also be on demand options through Time Warner and ESPN, so fans have the luxury of watching MAC sports at any point in time, whenever they need to get their fix of sports from the Midwestern Athletic Conference. Teams which are expected to spark some conversation this upcoming football season, which officially starts Aug. 29 with a triple header of ESPN BCS conference games, includes Northern Illinois, which won the conference in 2012.

    Like another poster’s blog, the beginning of this one shows up as broken HTML code.

    From what I can read, I like the business approach you took, and not just the cliche season hype article (like I wrote).

    I noticed you refered to the MAC as “Midwestern Athletic Conference,” and not the Mid-American Conference.

    TV rights are huge in this industry. What may seem like a boring story is actully very important for the programs and viewers. I am glad you focused on something that usually gets passed up.

    Obviously something went wrong when you posted the blog because of the script above it. Also, you forgot to include links to other stories. Make sure you preview your post before you hit send.

    While the joining of the MAC and TIme Warner Cable isn’t a typical sports story, it’s vastly important to the sports world. More and more people are getting their sports news from places outside of print, especially on TV. I read a little more into this though, and found that fans with satellite TV are losing access, which could potentially hurt the MAC.
    Editor’s comments: There could’ve been a little more information on the deal between the two, possibly a link to an article about the deal. Tell us exactly what you think this means to the MAC. Your thoughts just seemed a little short. You could’ve expanded on each individual point a little more. Also, “Midwestern Athletic Conference”?
