You can provide your input without personally insulting others. Do you act this way with people you disagree with in person?

Alison Brie from the TV show Community. Awesome show.

What the hell is up with that girl screaming on the free throws? We're at home!

Off topic, but is anyone else getting French ads in WTKA podcasts today? I'm in Canada so it kind of makes sense, but I wasn't listening live, and I doubt they make several versions of the podcast with different ads. Pretty funny to hear an ad for Couche-Tard, a Quebec corner store chain, on WTKA.

I stopped going to Scout after they added auto-play videos on every single page, often videos that were completely irrelevant to the content on that page.
Sam is great at his job though, I'm sure he'll land somewhere nice. He's pretty generous with information on WTKA every morning too.

Pocket Casts is nice, does everything I need. Much better than the built-in Play Music (I couldn't even find the mgopodcast on there.) I haven't tried any other paid app so I can't really compare those.

I went and watched the replay, this is the first time he got hit:
Wormley brings it. Sadly no replay on the broadcast.
(As an aside I humbly request MGoStaff check out Streamable if they haven't already... so much better than gifs and probably easier to make. Imagine embedding these in UFR!)

Youtube version doesn't skip:

As others have said, Beats are not great. They are OK, but absolutely NOT in the category of "bang for buck". Check out this summary from Marques Brownlee:
I have the Audio Technica ATH-M50x that he discusses and I agree they are fantastic. They aren't cheap but are miles ahead of anything by Beats, especially when it comes to the value proposition.
Also, top 5 headphones under 200 $:

So many bad stereotypes in this thread. In South Korea, the top professional gamers live in shared team houses and practice for 8+ hours a day. I don’t really care if it is generally considered a “sport” or not, you have to at least acknowledge the amount of effort these dudes put in. It does require some physical skill, you have to be precise and efficient and FAST. Check out these dudes playing Starcraft: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbpCLqryN-Q
That’s nuts. Call it a sport, or don’t, it doesn’t matter. Just understand that it’s not a joke.

I saw some replies about showing this to kids, just be warned there's a scene with some nasty footage of a dead wolverine around 34 minutes in. Might want to skip that.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||You've probably already||
You've probably already considered this but I would definitely contribute to some kind of crowdfunding for the MGoPodcast. Maybe Patreon, where users can give small recurring payments? A world without the MGoPodcast is a world I'd rather not live in.

802.11 n can use either the 2.4 ghz or the 5 ghz frequencies in theory but it's not always true. Some network adapters use N but cannot use the 5ghz frequency. I would google the exact model of the laptop or network adapter to confirm it can use 5ghz. If so, you either have a problem with your router (could be configuration) or with your laptop's network adapter (drivers?)

This was streamed on YouTube. If you had problems it was on your end. At least it is still available on YouTube though.
I see lots of people thinking the Player's Tribune was streaming this directly, but no, it was on YouTube (which is a WAY smarter move than trying to stream & host on your own server.)
|1 year 2 weeks ago||One thing to remember- it's||
One thing to remember- it's better for both Gary and the media if his destination isn't a slam dunk. It helps to build hype and give Gary more exposure to casual fans who don't really follow recruiting. I'm sure his mother knows a little something about marketing. If you just look at the crystal balls it's pretty clear he's coming to Michigan, but then there's not much for the media to discuss and bait clicks.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Sucks that he overhyped this.||
Sucks that he overhyped this. It would have been pretty cool without the Twitter buildup. Hopefully MGoFish learns from this- it's much better to under-promise and over-deliver than vice versa, especially when dealing with a dedicated group of people. We all expect and are used to this kind of marketing fluff coming from big companies, but in this context it's not acceptable and people will feel manipulated.
MGoFish will be fine regardless, I think he does good work, but this was a bad move for sure.

I think so too, I don't know how you could watch his tape from this year year and not think he's worth a flyer in the late rounds. I think he would be a good special teams player at worst.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||If an accident happens and||
If an accident happens and it's really not your fault, you have video to prove that. One interesting scenario is if you get into an accident with somebody who has the same insurance company as you, the insurance company would prefer to hold both of you partially at fault in order to increase both of your rates. Maybe that's a bit paranoid but I like the idea of having everything documented just in case.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Dash cam||
If you drive often enough maybe a dash cam would be a good idea. Could save you some insurance money down the line.

No, Nate Sudfeld is a very good quarterback, Michigan couldn't just sell out every play. Brandon Harris is nowhere near as good, to put it lightly. I really don't understand how LSU doesn't have anyone better.

I'm getting non-stop ads on the website, and the Android WTKA app isn't working at all (just stays at the splash screen.)

Ugh this cameraman is awful. I'm raging at the screen and it's not even a close game. Hope this gets fixed.

Anyone else notice all these live events on the official site have very low volume? I have to crank up my speakers to hear anything. It wasn't that bad for the coach but I can barely hear the players.

I had the same hatred for CVTs until I drove the new WRX. My buddy got one, I made fun of him for not getting the stick shift, he insisted I try it, and it really impressed me. It's not as crisp as a dual clutch but it emulates human shifting pretty well- it doesn't drone on and on at the same RPM like the other CVTs I've tried (Honda CRV / Accord etc.) They're also good for people who don't care about performance and just want to maximise miles per gallon.

Tshimanga Biakabutuka played at CEGEP Vanier College in Montreal. There's a nice big autographed plaque of him in the athletics building there. There have been a few other D1 and CFL players to come out of there but Tim is by far the most known.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||CEGEP||
In Quebec, high school finishes after grade 11. Instead of grade 12, kids go to CEGEP, where they can either do 2-year pre-university (effectively starting university 1 year later than americans) or they can do a 3-year "career" program like welding, nursing, etc instead.
This tape is from his last year of high school, so it's like the grade 11 film of a kid from the US. He has played 1 season (2014) for Vieux Montreal, I don't know why he doesn't have any film up from there yet.
edit: Eligibility is 3 years in CEGEP so technically he could either be 2016 or 2017, but most kids who go to university will only stay 2 years in CEGEP, making him a 2016. Both are possible though (not sure if the NCAA has any rules on this though.)
I wouldn't take anything away from this high school tape, you can imagine what the level of competition is at a Canadian high school... I played high school and CEGEP football in Montreal and... yeah. Not quite the same thing as american schools. The CEGEP tape would be nice to see but even that, the league has 2 super dominant teams (Vanier for the English kids, and Vieux for the French kids), the occasional decent season from a third team, and then it's just cupcakes. So I don't think the film will help us understand this, we just have to trust Harbaugh and his in-person evaluation.

Is it just me or are our centers awful at setting picks? Seems like they don't really obstruct the defender and the guard doesn't get any open space as a result. Levert in particular looks frustrated as hell.

Google forms is 10x better than surveymonkey, is free, and has unlimited responses.
