Re: Browns/Steelers - the Browns may stink, but they get ratings, good or bad, and that's why WKYC jumped on it. They'll make a load of money off of it, and get to tweak "The Home of the Browns", WOIO/19, in the process. It's a win-win for them.
The game should be available in HD on ESPNHD. As far as I know, they don't black that out either on satellite or cable.
Re: Buckeyes in HD - it happens, but very rarely. ABC, which has the rights to most of their games, doesn't do many regular season HD college football games. In fact, the only dependable over-air HD games each weekend are usually CBS' Saturday late afternoon SEC matchup, and NBC's Notre Dame package (home games in HD only, I believe). And even the last one is new this year.
