I am getting sick of having to watch these games online. Why can't the btn air this game? I know espn probably has the rights to it or something but come on.
MBB v. W. Illinois; Open Thread & Stream Link
Selfishously I love having the games online because I don't get the BTN.
Very informative original post. Many thanks.
Thanks, figured this was easier than a thread asking for a link, and then another one to discuss the game.
Looking at other games currently on, and based in my experience watching the last game my quality isnt too good on ESPN3. Can anyone tell me how to get better quality?
More bandwidth. Quality also goes in and out a lot. Off of commercials it usually is pretty blurry, then progressively gets better over the next minute or so. And that's off of crappy Internet that's shared with my entire apartment building
I've got max video quality, so the picture isn't bad, but the little freeze lag is maddening. I don't know how some of you watch all your games on the net (by necessity).
I want my 60" of HD goodness...
Is the stream not working for anyone else?
Nope. Not working fo me either. Huh.
The non-ESPN one wont work for me, trying to find another.
why wont it let me put the game full screen?
We've got to avoid scheduling these 300+ RPI teams. They hurt our strength of schedule too much.
That basket we gave up was too easy.
We are getting abused inside early.
Our offense is too streaky right now to be effective against Maui teams, I have confidence in our defense though.
I'm no expert, but it looks to me like Western Illinois knows what it's doing in a 2-man game and hence isn't the 332nd team.
If Trey Burke continues to do what he's done and no one takes a huge rigression we're going to have a good year
15-10 Michigan leads with 10 minutes to go in the first. Michigan has looked very sloppy so far with the exception of a few Burke 3's
Looks solid again
Yah, I just hope he gets a little more confident in the lane. He seems to always look to pass and never looks to finish.
I always thought all teams where streaky but maybe Michigan is a tad more because of the 3's....Be patient Michigan will streak for you, promise...
Firstrowsports has taken their stream of the game down off the site. Sigh...
This is OT but I am watching the bball game and just found this out. Anyone have any info?
rivals and cbs sports is that reporting Urban Meyer signed with OSU for 7 yrs/$35 mil.
Anyone have info?
and you posted that to make people look into it.
It was up there a few minutes ago, angry man.
This is what happened:
Some dude tweeted that Scout.com reporting that Meyer signed a 7yr deal at OSU.
The problem: Scout.com reported no such thing. What with re-tweeting and all, anyone can pretty much say anything and tens of thousands of people will see it. No legitimacy to it at all.
Garry Moeller and Al Glick are attached at the hip.
the offensive woes appear to be back tonight.
This Clark guy is annoying me.
Tied at 19 with 6:30 left, WIU is getting hot from outside.
19 all, 5:46 left in half.
Smotrycz looks awful so far. Would like to see Hardaway get some more looks
That was a pretty bad miss after getting an offensive rebound
how are we tied with a rpi 300 team?
They are hitting just about everything from 3.
I've learned to temper myself through the first thirty minutes so far this year. I hope they get it together next week though.
Somebody kill their perimeter shooters with fire.
i would apologize for the language but it's completely appropriate.
even though i have xfinity, i can't get the stream because i can't install flash 11.1 because i don't have Mac OS 10.6 or later. wtf is the point of using technology that's widely incompatible with the operating systems people actually have?
Same thing here. Total bs!
What are the odds W. Ilinois can shoot 67% from deep for the entire game?
Shoot very much.
Trey wears 3 and makes 3s. I like it.
Trey "Training Wheels" Burke
what the fuck are these ticky tacky fouls.
Looks like we're thinking about the plane trip to Hawaii.
Tied at 28 at the half.
Is that like 112 degree weather in Arizona being a "dry heat"?
wtf there were three guys on top of Morgan
When are we allowed to panic?
Thanks in advance.
At the third TV timeout of the half.
horrible call of a travel and these are borderline foul calls
Touch fouls all over the place.
these refs are calling everything. At least they are calling it both ways????
If the refs let both teams play it will help us.
Score please i cant get the game.
You know, you can follow gametracker on ESPN if nothing else.
thanks I will.
That is an absolute momentum-grabber. I'm calling a 14-3 run from this point.
Finally! finding a presence under the basket and on D. Block to score. Love it.
Western Ill is not bad. They look lite an NIT team at worst to me.
I like that sequence from Jordan Morgan. Atta boy with the hussle!
Jordan Morgan bumps and grinds? WTF
39-34 Mich 14 mins left.
Morgan really needs to work on his free throw shooting. He has a interesting hitch in his release.
Thanks to the OP for this thread - love having links listed and updated. Living overseas I'm always struggling to find working links (firstrowsports.com doesn't work in Korea either - double difficult).
Hoke Smash Slam Dunk
Are we missing a lot of Free Throws or is it me?
I've never streamed on ESPN3 but why are there TV timeouts for a game that's not really on TV? Or does ESPN3.com count as TV?
These refs are awful. Swallow your damn whistles fergodsakes
that charge appeared to be in the circle under the basket. the first one
Shooting really, really well. Not a lot you can do about it. The turnovers are all generated, and they're getting okay, but not GREAT looks. If they just hit everything they throw up, you can't do a lot.
Based on the D, I think M is already preparing for Memphis.
The students are right. Refs you do suck.
Hardaway looks pissed off right now.
why does it seem like the commentators are always bitching us out in both bball and football while 60 miles northwest Izzo and Dantonio are tough great coaches.
Apparently you have to be a douche to be tough great choaches.
You can stream the game straight to your television using the ESPN app.
Announcers are right. We need to take it inside. Get an advantage by getting the 4 foul guys out of the game. Got a break on the D end getting the first one out of the game
So frustrating not being able to watch this game, Western Illinois is %54 from 3... but there's not much you can do about that, hopefully WIU cools down the last few minutes and we should be ok
...From someone who can see the game, does the UM Defense look that bad, or they just throwing up prayers that go in??
Seems to have their hands on the ball more than in the shooter's face. They're getting OK looks, but rarely totally unharassed. M has forced a TON of turnovers.
Prayers and refs aren't helping much
He should go out for the olympic swim team with dives like that.
That is a TERRIBLE call against Morgan.
Perimeter Screen Setter in the B1G
And these refs suuuuuuuck!
That was a text book screen. It isn't Morgan's fault that WI guy flopped.
He looks like he's ready to continue his remarkable trajectory this year.
That WI trainer looked very confused there. He started to massage the wrong part of his leg.
Or douse the leg with Gatorade
also getting down the court really fast. That should have been an easy transition layup or dunk. Not sure how they got two guys down that fast. They've been rebounding okay, so they're not just totally surrendering the rebound to go on D.
What the hell was with that call on Morgan? Set feet, hands straight up and they call a foul? Horrible call...
2nd bad call against Morgan in the last couple minutes. At worst, that should be a no call. If a call, Morgan looked set.
is still the playmaker of this team. Dude's skills are undeniable.
For the announcers to blame M's woes on looking ahead to Memphis in Maui. It's not like Beilein is wearing a Hawaiian shirt and drinking piña coladas on the sidelines. Hmmm...now I want a drink.
You have a bunch of 19 year old kids who are probably going to Hawaii for the first time tomorrow. How focused do you think they can be?
These guys are dropping like flies.
Western Illnois has the art of the emergency cramp down perfectly.
Edit: Nevermind... he might be more hurt than that.
That did not look good, mostly because it looked harmless and he's in so much pain.
WTF is this trainer doing. He was looking at the wrong knee this time.
Need more Gatorade for his leg!
was that his first basket, inside a minute? Unfortunately not his best night.
He had trouble tonight finishing around the basket. He missed at least two gimmies.
is made of suck and horrible.
Does anyone else need to vomit?
need to step up their game to compete with Memphis. I'm a bit concerned right now.
Memphis won't play nearly as good defense as WIU. Although we will have to play much better defense.
out rebounded by W-ILL, not good.
go blue beat Memphis!
can blow a four pount win out their rears. Should've been about 10. Should've been 20 if we could shoot free throws.
Michigan wins 59-55.
this is a case of looking ahead.
At least the coaches son who went down was able to walk in the handshake line. It looked like one of those greak injuries that happen with minimal contact.
Closer than I would like, but Jordan was perfect from the field (5/5) and from comments on the board, in a game where he had no luck with the refs, this makes me very happy
Yes, I was really having a hard time with Morgan not starting. The guy only takes shots he can make and plays smart basketball. Good to see him keeping at it.
Whatever. A win is a win. Tough game to play under the circumstances.
I still think we have a good shot at knocking off Memphis. Go Blue!
gotta swallow their whistles. Nothing but bad calls followed up by worse make up calls. We'll never beat a decent team shooting free throws like that. Horrible game Metrics. Wide open 3s were missed often in the 2nd half. This team hasn't played well in any of their first couple game, including the exhibition. I am expecting a slow start to the season and we'll pick it up once big 10 play starts.
I didn't watch the game but I saw the box score and I'm horrified. Are all the warning signs there?
Couldn't watch the game and I was baffled by the final score. I thought this was supposed to be easy. So the problem was bad calls, terrible free throw shooting, sloppy play?
... right on cue
...many are playing wi short. They are well coached and should make a real push come conference play. Should only make our rpi much better come selection sunday.
