With less than 3 hours to go until tip-off, can anyone give me rock-solid information on how to be able to listen to Matt Shepherd doing the National Championship Game PBP instead of the CBS national radio feed? I want to be prepared well in advance of tonight's game.
I've spent the last hour on these internets searching for KNOWLEDGE on how to insure being able to listen to Shepherd, and now am at the mercy of those here who are in the know about such vital information.
I was able to find out that the game will be broadcast in my area locally by WSJM 1400-AM out of the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor area, but 2 nights ago (when I tired of Jim Nance) and clicked on to their "Listen Live" icon, they instead had some syndicated political talk show on. Found out later they were not permitted to stream the game live, but I was given no actual reason (BTW, WSJM is a local-only AM station that is required to cut way back the wattage of their signal at sundown. I know this from the frustration of losing night-game radio broadcasts of Tiger Baseball).
What, if any, are my best options for being able to listen to Shepherd do the broadcast tonight?
Grantland Rice should only be brought out under special circumstances, and by God, this is a special circumstance. Go Blue!
I remember the stand at Thermopylae
Great article by SBNation on McGary's rise through March Madness and why he is awesome. One of my favorite lines in the article "Note: We would not be writing this article if Mitch McGary played for Duke, because Duke would have ruined everything that is great about Mitch McGary."
Only 4 more hours!!
If you could talk to the team before the game tonight, what would you say?
MGoPoll: I am stuck on if I want to drink tonight or not. I can't correlate my drinking habits to the team winning or losing. I did not drink during SDSU, VCU, Florida or 'Cuse. I did drink (heavily) during Kansas. What I cannot do is start the game not drinking, then begin drinking in the second half. I am 99% positive that is the reason we lost to Indiana at home. (1st half - zero beers and a Michigan lead, 2nd half - 2 beers and Michigan lost).
Up-vote for engaging in ALL OF THE BEERS
Down-vote for a sober night
Speaking of superstitions. What are you doing to secure victory for the boys in blue (or maize) tonight? Sadly, for me, I haven't wore Michigan related clothing during game day all tourney long. So I will be rocking a plain white t-shirt tonight.
Feel free to posbang if you want. Today is kind of a big deal. Go Blue and Good Luck to our amazing Basketball Team!
I was listening to 97.1 "the fan", here in cbus, at lunch today and they continually were bashing Michigan. It seems that Hoke (and now Beilein) has changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling Michigan jerseys is a good start.
What they (mainly Bobby Carpenter) were discussing was what they called the "blarge" (charge that was actually a block) that won the game over Syracuse and how the best scenario for the "Buckeye Nation" would be a Michigan loss tonight and Mitch McGary being forced to go pro "because you can't turn down being a lottery pick". They were also discussing thier big recruiting weekend and that they hosted two Cass Tech guys (Weber and Alibi) and that they REALLY like the buckeyes and are teamates of future buckeye Damon Webb, so buckeye fans should keep a close eye on them.
Needless to say, I kind of lost my appetite but it was my fault, I should have known better that to listen to that station today, of all days.
