I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
|16 weeks 2 days ago||we're still a generation away||
If you combine Apple, Google, and Microsoft's market capitilizations you're either slightly north of $1 Trillion dollars, or pretty darn close.
All three have tried to negotiate a-la-carte programming deals, and failed. Even with their financial resources and technical expertise, they still haven't been able to crack a-la-carte programming.
It's just not possible at this time; everyone in the current chain of distribution (providers, content producers, etc.) is making too much money. Granted there are outliers who may be struggling, but if you're in the current basic cable distribution framework, chances are you're doing pretty well.
You're going to see an increase in the number of distribution fights like the one between CBS and Time Warner that's going on right now. As the number of video subscribers cut the cord (a small number, but growing) networks are going to fight over a smaller and smaller consumer base. The Cable/TeleCos will keep increasing prices until they can't. And then they'll start capping the monthly GB usage consumption to combat over-the-top programming coming from Netflix and other streaming services.
Physical access is still king, and always will be.
On the topic of providers, here's an interesting statistic -
"AT&T and Verizon dominate a wireless industry that is already heavily concentrated – more so than the auto, oil, or banking industries. The largest two wireless carriers control almost 70 percent of industry revenues, compared to the top two auto makers controlling 35 percent, the top two oil firms controlling 25 percent and the two largest banks controlling only 20 percent of their industry revenues. This state of affairs is bad for consumers, and it is bad for the vendors and service providers who make up the wireless ecosystem."
To combat rising access costs, I have a grandfathered unlimited data account from Verizon that I use as my primary internet connection (I tether my iPhone to a router that provides Wifi access to other devices at my residence), and a Slingbox stationed at my parent's house to sling TV to my Macbook in my apartment. I buy my phones at the unsubsidized price, off contract to retain my unlimited data account through Verizon.

there is no 'All-22' game film being utilized in the NCAA.
They use a 50-yd. shot, and a north/south end zone shot. This video is traded over a series of tubes between schools.

Choice quote from an article earlier;
"Q: Will retiree health care be affected?
A: Yes. Orr has proposed ending city-funded health care plans for retirees. He wants retirees to shift to Medicare or the exchanges that are being created under the Affordable Care Act."
Vanguard couldn't find the door quick enough.

Let's look at Northwestern's (relevant) B1G schedule before they play Michigan

Sorry folks, I don't see Northwestern winning any of these games. Maybe the Wisconsin game. They're going to be deflated when they play us, with nothing to play for.
Michigan wins, big. Raback it.

|31 weeks 6 days ago||We can rebuild him||
I kind of anticipated this. Fortunately, there are some easy workarounds going forward.
Everyone needs to save everything that they upload. At the end of the academic calendar year, a consolidated torrent with everything that has been uploaded can be created. Everything for that season is contained within that torrent. That way multiple people have copies of the archive.
While they can take down torrents/accounts ad infinitum, the URL on MGoVideo.com will never change, since the embed to where the video is stored on YouTube can easily be altered.
Anyone know contact emails for Wolverine Devotee and Wolverine Historian? Especially for the older material, I'd like to begin consolidating and taking account of what source material we do have.

This is what my initial research into this has found as well. I can't believe I'm going to be forced to drop $250 on a out-of-production Sony radio so that can pick up WWJ 950 AM in HD (97.1-2 carries WWJ, but I'm not sure if they broadcast the games or continue with local news). Lots of cheaper HD radios can do FM, very few that I've found can do AM.

yeah i get that. I also created a thread asking about what bench Michigan would be sitting on for their hockey game because I'd like to purchase tickets for the side of the ice where we would be shooting on for two periods, and there was a similar trolling/garbage response.
what would you think if you were considering posting on the board for the first time to ask a meaningful question? these garbage/sarcastic responses aren't helpful (yes, the OP could have looked at the sticky or a mod could have stepped in, replied, and posted a link to the sticky -> locked the thread)

I'm taking the longview on this - your app offers a much more coherent way to sift through data than anything I've encountered. It's the future. THE FUTUREEEEE. No, but really - someone needs to do this strictly because it's the cornerstone for future crowdsourced webapps or collaboration. Small amount of non-referral traffic? Who cares.
what if I want to see every play that Denard ran against BCS teams who ran a 4-3 defense, and have all the snaps in a playlist? Eventually, we're going to compile and index the data where that's possible.
everyone has to start somewhere. I really enjoy the work you do WolverineBlue, and I hope you continue iterating on these ehanced UFR's.

did they announce as to whether the game will be on Fox Sports Detroit or Fox Sports Detroit Plus? Guide is currently saying sharty's game is on FSD during that time, so they would either kick them off (lulz) or put it on FSD+.
Edit: HALOL, they kicked sparty off of FSD and put us on there tonight instead! Confirmed by FSD on twitter.

there has to be a drupal module that 'mobilizes' the site, yes?

Derp. You would think they would sync the the audio/video and then deliver it to the relay. Say what you will about ESPN, but they are light years ahead of the BTN in terms of production.

|1 year 49 weeks ago||true, most of the time||
although if you were take a stroll on the main street side box level during the 2010 season, that statement could be refuted. certain branches of the university were renting suites. little known fact right there.
I don't subscribe to the mark of a successful program being 'spend spend spend'. the rebuttal is that the nature of college althetics demands it, that competing in the tier-1 level of D1 football requires a massive amount of capital.
this only holds true if the macroeconomic conditions support it. I'm of the belief that this country will continue to experience a decreased standard of living for quite some time (BLS data and anyone over the age of 50 can tell you that).
we've turned a surplus into a sizable defecit. Glick at $27 million was reasonable, the rennovations at Schembechler are reasonable, and the scoreboards were reasonable (not an engineer, but the strucutural work done around the stadium might have been contingent for the scoreboards going on, so scratch those as well)
I think the boxes and suites were too much. my biggest fear is that if there is precipitous decline, the University will bridge-loan the AD. msu is doing this already, to a degree. But that is not how things are done here.
|2 years 6 days ago||dude||
great memories. I remember playing in tournaments in Grand Rapids and I was honestly more excited to play mini stick hockey than the actual games.
|2 years 1 week ago||we need a SarBox||
we need a Sarbones-Oxley equivalent for AD's/ President's. There's too much money floating around (recruiting), and the legal framework is way far behind.
The profit focused nature current D1 programs warrants it. Have the NCAA give players a very modest stipend, any monetary gain the player receives beyond that would jeopordize the tax exempt status of the athletic department. Watch how quickly things would then shape up.

Constantly taunting msu fans and calling them the Tartans (green & gold = Wayne state) not even the msu brah's would challenge this guy. The entire second half he stood there with an unlit cigarette in his mouth, defiant until the end.

Not a huge deal, but 100 years from now when the historians are trading rare copies of games, would be nice to have the whole broadcast.

|2 years 16 weeks ago||Update||
So based on the feedback I received, I think I'm going to write a tutorial on how to setup OpenVPN on Amazon EC2 availability zones in US West/Europe. There's a few reasons why I think this route would be best (although I understand that not everyone's needs will be met by this, I think it's the optimal solution)
1) You'll be watching the games on ESPN3. Every Michigan game will be available then if you're using a West Coast/EU VPN. Even if you live in Michigan and are under the blackout, you'd be able sidestep it with this
2) For games on the BTN, I believe you can stream these games with their new BTN2Go service. You'd need to connect to the EU zone.
More details coming in the next few days.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Bingo||
OSU will claim that they told Sarniak to get lost.
But the broader issue here is that too much money is being made, the players/parents know it, and those who intend to make money during 'the process', do make money.
So what now?

not that simple. when you connect to the (live) streaming video, you will need to have an IP address outside North America, or the stream fails to start.

pretty sure they restrict Canadian users as well. You need to be somewhere outside North America.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||eh||
you get what you pay for - I pay $20/month for Goldenfrog. It works on my iPhone/iPad;, when they release the NFL Gamepass apps, I will be able to use those as well.
I get 4Mbit downstream/ 1Mbit upstream from the VPN. You need at least 3.5Mbit downstream to take advantage of the HD stream you're paying for from the NFL.
You aren't going to get those speeds for cheaper than $20/month (I did my homework on this)

I typically go with the 'the truth is somewhere in in the middle', but with this case, one of two things will happen -

The NCAA moves at a glacial pace, so 2 looks more likely than 1.

Also, I should mention - If you don't have an iOS device to stream the game instantly, you can download the game directly from a link I'll provide. The game will take an hour or so to download, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
Once you have the game saved to your computer, you can then drag and drop it into iTunes. Once it's in iTunes (which is available for Mac and PC, and the same on both operating systems), you can click 'Play' and then press the airplay button again to send it to your Apple TV.

I know. I was using that particular video because it's what I had laying around.
And with to respect to Firefox/.ogg, there are other sites out there that will cater to that, namely mgovideo.com
The focus of this site is to get content to the TV, and that's pretty much it. It works with a specific set of parameters (having some sort of iOS device, whether it's an iPod touch/iPhone/iPad & a $99 Apple TV 2)
I think it's pretty accessible with respect to usability; two clicks and it's on your TV. No burning Blu-Rays/not being tethered to your laptop, etc. You just need a $99 Apple TV and an iOS device, which more and more people have.

There would be much more purpose if we had won 9 games this year.

was at Cottage Inn tonight; our table was next to UCLA's water polo team.
Let's just say 'Wish they all could be California girls' rang very true. Even though some (half?) may not even be from CA. Still though, it's that California sun. Or something.

tell me how you really feel.

fair enough. again though, to go 9-1 against Michigan (even with our decline) was something very few people could have seen at the time.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||bingo.||
|2 years 47 weeks ago||easy.||
|2 years 48 weeks ago||yep||
ESPN = zero class.
why would you say anything that would take away from the moment Stanford has earned?
I like the breadth of ESPN's coverage but absolutely despise how they dramaticize everything for more viewership.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Misdirection!||
I am a sucker for misdirection. Also, I did not see any play that our current players would be incapable of running. Few if any four step drops requiring Denard to heave it 30 yards.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||bingo||
there were more than a few times this season that passage crossed my mind.

Fun fact - I was born 16 days after this game was played. Weird to think about.

best comment all day.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||yep||
starts at zero, number of stops goes up or down one depending on the number of turnovers we force or give away.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||bingo.||
someone much wiser than myself said this at the beginning of the season and it has held true through 9 games:
this team will win the game if we're able to get two stops per half.

Thanks, good to know we have people here that establish standards on such issues.
Anyways, I'm glad the board chimed in; this is a perfect example of intellectual cowardice. Intellectuals love to crawl back to 'well, at the margin, your statement is neither verifiable or a testable hypothesis, so it's hard to extrapolate a claim ..." A signification portion of US economists prior to the 2008 financial correction marveled at how our beautiful modeled financial system had allocated risk efficiently, and that growth would continue in perpetuity, with a few bumps (minor recessions) mixed in. Didn't quite work out that way, and the economic implications of being thoroughly incorrect in this instance were vast. Deviation from the groupthink norm was seen as radical and dangerous, which is why the pervasiveness of the groupthink managed to influence the behavior and perception of an entire group of professionals. The results are self evident.
My original statement is either true or false, despite the meandering at the margin that this board loves to push. I stand by true.

THIS IS THE MICHIGAN DIFFERENCE.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Upon further review||
From a strategic standpoint, this is the best thing that could happen before we open up big 10 play. This is what other teams will be running against us on a consistent basis. Better to have seen it now, dodge a bullet, and gameplan for it, than to bitten in the ass by it later.
It's up to the coaches now to get them prepared. Hopefully the players will learn from their mistakes, and execute.

when I click the link to the UFR (defense against ND), the app crashes.

feel free to jump on it if you've got the bandwidth/free space.
I've got around 200-300Mbit behind it.

just to give you an idea of how much traffic we're doing, swarm is currently pushing around 12-14mb/second, aggregate. Maybe more, that's just a very conservative guess.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||yay||

p.s. for anyone else who might be able to help, shoot me an email; whoever is closer to the stadium/more available after the game, the better. Hopefully a few people will be able to help out and I can choose someone by Wednesday next week.

just let GoBlueWolverine and The Wolverine in on practice. Control what can be reported, and focus on the positive.
Don't like it? Too bad, frankly I don't think we owe the Detroit area press anything.
Apple has this down to an art. Even in the midst of the iPhone 4 antenna issue, they haven't lost any sales.
Release a good product (win), control the message, and let the detractors wither on the vine.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Re: the copyright||
Re: the copyright stuff;
trust me, if there were games in 720p you could watch, on demand, streaming from the cloud on multiple platforms (the content being platform agnosticl; h.264 in .mp4) I would stop TOMORROW.
this is a shitload of work and I would rather spend my Sunday's doing something else.
But I love college football/computers and my job deals with both.
and I'm flying to NYC on Monday to attend this; http://sportsvideo.org/main/blog/2010/07/15/join-us-for-the-inaugural-svg-sports-intern-meetup/
so that I can bend the ear of a few of those guys to convince them that there is money in this, and that we, NCAA sports, need to move quicker on it.

|3 years 18 weeks ago||another certain Michigan backup comes to mind...||
The play of Sean Hunwick rallied the team as they accomplished one hell of a feat after they had dug themselves into one hell of a hole.
You go with the guy the team believes in. The are 10 other guys on the field, and if their performance, as a unit, is greater than the performance delta between the two players in questions, that is the direction you must go.

that being said, I'd still like to know what his approach was and why. I'm going to do it myself later this evening, just wondering if anyone had taken a crack at it first.

we're going to do some testing in the future to see how we can securely stream the video via justin.tv or some other sort, without it being taken down.
hopefully it will come together by the end of the tournament. in the meantime, we're going to work on coming up with that mechanism over the next few weeks - hang tight. you'll be glad we have this all ironed out and rock solid by the time the season rolls around.
