OSU and ESPN kiss and make up “sort of”

In what can only be described as mind boggling a few months after ESPN unsuccessfully sued Ohio State in Ohio they have decided to do a weeks long filming of OSU football training camp. Many OSU fans will no doubt be confused and pulled in both directions as I know I am. Do I continue my personal boycott of the media company that claims to be the World Wide Leader? Do I consider this programming as a live game which is the only thing I watch on their network? I don’t know about the rest of you but I am too intrigued at seeing this much OSU football info before the season starts to not watch it. To each their own though I fully understand if many of you choose not to watch but if you do below you will find a complete schedule as well as the press release from OSU.

Here is the press release from OSU-

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State fans will get a close-up on the 2012 Ohio State Buckeyes and new head coach Urban Meyer when ESPN debuts a series of All-Access specials beginning August 14 on ESPNU and additional ESPN platforms. The network is coming to Columbus the first week of fall camp to shoot ESPN All-Access: Training Days Ohio State.

With extensive behind-the-scenes access to on- and off-field play, team meetings and campus facilities, ESPN cameras will introduce players and coaches as they work through pre-season training across six days. Viewers will see four, 30-minute specials on ESPNU (August 14-17), a five-part series across College Football Live (August 19-23) and a one-hour special on ESPN (August 22).

Previously, ESPN All-Access: Training Days has spotlighted the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Oklahoma Sooners’ programs.

ESPN All-Access: Ohio State Training Days – Schedule

If ESPN is not your thing there will be a 1 hour special on the Big Ten Network on Aug. 19th at 10 PM EST. The special will be the BTN behind the scenes show giving you an inside look at OSU football training camp as well.
