i get that brian is trying to maximize his ad revenue in time for one of the site's most heavily trafficked days (NSD), but not having a viable backup was extremely short-sighted. i'd be peeved too if an unaffiliated app was siphoning my page views, but the official app is an unmitigated disaster and to force us moble users back to that the night before signing day is just asking for outrage....
unless of course this was all a clever ploy to either (i) pressure the official app developer to do what brian has been paying him to do, or (ii) lay the groundwork to announce a round of crowd-funding for an updated app.

not seoul, but im in tokyo and the alumni group here is hosting (along with the osu alumni group) a game watch at a bar so its not unheard of. might be worth looking up the alumni groups on facebook to see if anything similar is happening in seoul. check out osu alumni groups as a last resort.

like the idea, but the name needs a new workthrough - something like 'xfinity student section' could really pop.

i read that as BTN (the network, not the conference) will sublicense their rights to certain michigan games to fox/other networks. not uncommon in the broadcast industry.

coughlin is out in new york, feldman on twitter is hinting that this opening could have consequences at the collegiate level. wonder if urban is in the mix for the nyg coaching search? this exodus from osu has to make one wonder.

california cantina in providencia? i watched the women's world cup championship there this past summer while working in santiago. also currently in chile but in la serena. got my ipad hooked up to the tv using a umich vpn, fios account, and a pretty solid internet connection to watch the game.

la serena, chile. doubtful a bar down here shows it but praying my ipad vpn holds up and i can find a decent enough internet connection. fingers crossed. chilean girlfriend is in for an exciting new years day huddled over my ipad watching a sport she wont understand.

thanks for the feedback. i also wasn't a fan of the longer sentences when i first wrote it, but couldn't quite find a way to chop them up in a way that still had some rhythm to it. going to play around with this more.

this just reeks of manufactured 'disrespekt' for mork to get his players and the rest of sparty nation all affronted for their big game against osu this weekend - guarantee you the msu SID guy fed that reporter the 'question'
|1 year 31 weeks ago||if in the pressbox as media:||
if in the pressbox as media: do not wear anything proclaiming an allegiance to the competing teams or any other college team apparel (pro apparel might be okay, but still not seen as professional - i would never do it.) working often in the yankee stadium pressbox, i seldom - if ever - saw yankee beat writers wearing yankee gear. if you are wearing a jersey or any michigan apparel, and are there to work, most of the other writers are likely going to think either.
a) you're some writer's cousin who he brought up to the pressbox to silently observe (see below) or
b) you work for michigan SID or michigan stadium event crew.
cheering or clapping of any sort is also looked down upon and is seen as uncouth - you and everyone else in there are there to do a job, emotions should be checked at the door (or channeled into your writing) i worked in broadcast media for major league baseball for four seasons, and mlb/ teams have a policy not to permit rightsholders/press from wearing team apparel and were pretty serious about it. i never worked in college football/sports but i can't imagine its any different.
believe it or not most members of the press, even if they came into their job as passionate fans (as i was with baseball), are jaded assholes who cant wait to write their story and go home, and certainly won't appreciate such unprofessional appearance in the pressbox. they have likely been at the stadium from 6am if not earlier, and by gametime after so many cups of coffee and shitty stadium cafeteria food, you are ready to get the fuck out of the stadium. but make no mistake, behind those judgmental frowns being cast your way, a jealous envy of your vibrant passion festers.
if you're a fan just 'observing' from the pressbox, you'll probably look like a doofus and very much out of place in a jersey but its not per se forbidden in the absence of a specific regulation. a michigan polo or the like would be much much better, but you still may be confused for some michigan athletics staff/runner.

im in santiago for the summer and have made it to three matches; Chile really seemed to gel during that game against Bolivia, and if they make it past Uruguay they should be in the final. Brazil looked more fluid yesterday than they did against Colombia, and without Neymar no less (it was awesome to see him dominated by Sanchez and then suspended in the game against Colombia). My money is on a Argentina-Chile final.

saw someone on campus yesterday wearing a very official looking under-armour michigan boxing track jacket. not sure if those are one-offs for the boxing team kinda like the reebok stuff for hockey, but it gives me hope. looked pretty slick.

you should! i had a pretty good understanding of photoshop before i started this but had never used any of the other creative suite products. just watched a few ~10 minute vidoes about motion tracking and layering in after effects and i was able to sort it out. its not too difficult, just really really tedious.
