Well it's not Cornell's fault and the ESPN+ coverage will probably improve with time. However, I would still rather have the games on ESPN+ with a few delays than not have the games broadcast at all.

Why were TV breaks being taken during the game, anyway? I don't recall seeing an actual paid commercial. There were the same three ESPN commercials, the same three Ivy/school commercials, and a test-pattern-like "game is in commercial break" screen during every TV timeout.

If you don't have any ads sold, please let the game continue at an ad-free pace. NCAA games take long enough to complete these days, we don't need to add delays where none are warranted.

As for the actual broadcast quality, the camera work and production were at the level of a 1980's community access channel broadcast of a high school game. We were in "all 22" mode most of the time, forcing the viewer to squint, despite having a wide-screen TV, to figure out if that was a handoff or a fake. Replays? If you're lucky, pal. And they might be queued up to halfway through the play, or 20 seconds before the snap, and often had to be aborted to get back to live action. They had an end zone camera behind one of the goal posts, yet chose to almost never use it for place kicks. I know, none of those are ESPN's fault, they're just the carrier. And yes, it's far better than not being able to watch the game at all. But a little improvement would go a long way.
