Plenty of people on here assuming they'd get waxed by a good P5 team if they made a NY6 bowl, and that may be true. But how can you really know? If they go undefeated and make it look relatively easy from here on out you have to give them a chance, no? They can only play the games that are scheduled.

The Roku has the BTN app you can download to it and then watch. You'll still need a login from a separate cable provider though.

AFAIK, the player will come with a remote and operate "standalone" once it's connected to your TV. If you just get the stick, it operates much more like a chromecast and you need to use your phone to control it. In that case, I'd recommend just getting a chromecast.
Also probably relevant, if you sign up for SlingTV (streaming cable service, $20 a month for base package that includes ESPNs) they'll throw in a Roku (older model but it still works fine) for free.

The next class doesn't enroll until the fall (except for EEs) anyway so when Green graduates makes no difference.

Spent 2 hrs this morning getting people to committ so I could buy 4 tix and now it looks like the student allotment of $35 tix is gone... Damn it! Can still buy unlimited amount of $90 tix, but I'd rather play the secondary market than pay that.

Ever since my parents became empty nesters a few years ago, they've punted on the traditional Thanksgiving celebrations. So tomorrow morning, we'll all drive from kzoo to Chicago with some family friends for our new tradition, the delicious all you can eat Thanksgiving dinner from Mike Ditka's restaurant. We've been enough years in a row now that we don't even need to remind them to seat us near a TV with Lions game on. Then Friday we join the madhouse on Michigan Ave for Black Friday shopping. It's more fun than you'd think!

Before reading about how Frantz made the game-winner the next year, especially when talking about the pizza place that changed their marquee, my thoughts were: This guy must have been the inspiration for Ray Finkle/Lois Einhorn in Ace Ventura! I found myself sadistically hoping the story took that turn

So the B1G looks like it will be a big pillow fight this year... Except Staee, ugh

Is that again going to come courtesy of an intentional PSU safety after wasting ridiculous amounts of clock?

|1 year 16 weeks ago||Grand Haven beach||
I'll be camping on the beach in Grand Haven. And by camping I mean staying in my aunt's rather fancy camper. It's more small mobile cottage than tent, but you won't find me complaining. The weekend is sure to include plenty of the 4 B's: beach, boats, BBQ, and beers.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Warning: Cool story bro below||
I had the opportunity to attend the Big Brothers Big Sisters event last night that Coach Carr was at. Before dinner, I had the chance to introduce myself and chat with him for a few minutes. I had planned on quickly mentioning that I'm in my 8th year at UM (undergrad + PhD will do that to you) before talking football and memories of the old days. Instead Coach steered the conversation toward the state of academia in the state and country. We each had our 2 cents to share about it and ended up talking about that for the entire time, before I ended by mentioning that my fandom began when attending my first game, 1997 vs. Iowa, a comeback win that he remembered as "a pivotal game" that season.
And no, I didn't ask for a selfie with him.

More importantly, will he grow a couple inches so that we can continue our streak of having a "6-6 soph-o-more" to be announced during player intros? It's a tradition that shouldn't be allowed to fade.

Wouldn't it be M00B? Even more embarrassing, glad it's no more

Don't the refs know they're giving the makeup call to the wrong team from Michigan? And 2 years too late
|1 year 31 weeks ago||The Spike assist||
Bullets on yesterday's game and no mention (or gif) of the Spike behind-the-head assist!? I mean it was only one play but it was one I could watch/talk about until at least next season when he does something like it again.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||I understand the ESPN hate,||
I understand the ESPN hate, their commentary, bias, etc. is terrible. But ESPN is in another league when it comes to streaming and watching on mobile. It is unbelievably annoying that NBC sports live extra doesn't have native chromecast built-in yet (BTN2go desperately needs this too). IMO, I'd prefer ESPN until the other broadcasters can match watchESPN in capability/reliability.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Bluster||
I think Brian mentioned this in UV yesterday. This consideration seems like purely bluster to try to put pressure on the pro leagues, namely the NBA, to change up their one-and-done rules which the NCAA and especially the big ten hate. If freshman are ineligible, they can't very well go pro after one year in college unless they were good enough coming out of hs in which case there's no way they'd waste a year not playing competitively before becoming eligible for the draft.

Or how about him becoming a leader on the team and earning the title of "Captain Falcon". At RB, you could even see a Falcon Punch into the endzone

Not the program, just this year's team. Doesn't change the frustration but it's not exactly doom and gloom for the foreseeable future
