Throwback Thursday: late 60s & early 70s media guides.

"Throwback Thursday" is back for a third straight week and this time out we've scanned covers and select pages from inside four late 1960s and early 1970s Princeton media guides.

Four decades ago these guides were not the glossy, full color, 200+ behemoths they eventually developed into. Heck, they weren't even called "media guides." The oldest of these documents is little more than a small, possibly photocopied pamphlet.

That said, each has a certain understated, simplistic beauty - though they've got nothing on the mid-1970s Princeton media guides I won on eBay last year which are nearly works of art.

(Don't worry, you'll see'm soon enough.)

Tuesday News:

The big news from yesterday was the Ivy League's announcement that NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus) would be carrying between six and 10 men's basketball games in 2012-13 and 2013-14. As Soft Pretzel Logic states, these broadcasts can include non-conference matchups.

In addition, Princeton's separate agreement with the ESPN family of networks, which seems to always mean two Ivy contests at Jadwin Gym are broadcast nationally, remains in effect and continues beyond this two year deal with NBC Sports Network.

Whether that means fewer Princeton games will be part of this new package or that you'll see more Tiger action than ever before with greater ease remains to be seen.

This new partnership also includes Ivy League football and men's lacrosse games.
