Michigan Homer Feed on TNT

Submitted by Vonkleist on March 31st, 2018 at 10:43 PM
Not sure what feed you watched but it was a lot of fun to watch the pro-Michigan feed on TNT. It was great that when things were bad they kept things positive. I didn’t tune into the Loyola feed but I think it was a cool format for the game. *Edit* one thing I forgot to mention is that I felt it said something about our national status that our channel was TNT and Loyola was on TruTV

It definitely helped me maintain my sanity when we were down for that extended period of time. It was pro-Michigan, but not obnoxious. Definitely the go to Monday night!

Anybody that needs a former b-ball player to tell them that M needs to make shots probably should stick to the national broadcast.

For the first half, I watched the National Broadcast. I thought it would help me keep my bias in check if I was listening to neutral announcers instead of Michigan homers convincing me we were getting screwed.

Since the first half didn’t go our way, I decided to make a change and tune into the Michigan broadcast for the second half and I seemed to like that much better! Michigan homer channel all the way for me with the Natty Game!

Agree with the sentiment, but I must continue to tilt at the windmill that is the use of “natty” to represent anything other than “well-dressed” or “watery beer-like substance.” You’re only saving a single syllable. Please, consider future abbreviations, and think before you type. ;)

It needs to be capitalized. Also, 'natty' doesn't mean 'well dressed', it's 'nattily'; I don't know about the 'watery beer-like substance' reference either, did you mean 'nasty'?

Noted!  I don't think I ever used "Natty" in that sense before, so I don't know why I did last night!  However, had I said "National" it would have been followed by "Championship" game, or "Title" game, so it saved me more than just the one syllable ;)

I will try to refrain from using slang in the future to sound more proper :)

Go Blue and Happy Easter!

Was at a bar in Ohio and they had Loyola’s feed playing over the speakers. Quite a few Buckeye fans were loud and cheering thinking UM was going to lose....they were oddly quiet at the games end....Buckeye tears are tasty even when they are for other teams.

Personally I’ve never been a fan of them. I also don’t think the neutral announcers are bad, though. People get on Wagner every game which I’m sure other fans get tired of. And the crew we got tonight is about as good as any in college basketball. I’m glad they have them, though. Gives people options.

I am going to be honest here - I did not even realize that there was a pro-Michigan feed until it came up as a promotion on the national broadcast on TBS. Part of that is me latching onto the key points like which channel we're going to be on and not doing much further research, but I would be interested to know how it went overall.

But I don’t expect too much. My favorite part was when they asked Sanjay Gupta for his diagnosis on Townes’ injury based on a two second clip. His response was something along the lines of “he hurt himself somewhere on the leg”. Nothing like putting a Dr. on the spot on national tv.

The analysis wasn't exactly top shelf, but then again I've had to listen to Reggie Miller talk about fsu "running Michigan off the three point line" while they're pulling up for uncontested, wide open threes. Also, I don't think they mentioned Sister Jean once. She was a nice story for sure and added to the tournament, but after the last week love-fest, I was ready to some Michigan homers.

That the world has come to this: Sports fans who have this phobia that the media is "out to get their team" AS IF the media cares about your team enough to actually have any feelings about them. AND it's very hard to believe the media is out to get Michigan--witha squeaky-clean coach and reputation. Just pathetic that Michigan fans believe in some sort of conspiracy--except that, again, it is a worls of self indulging babies who need echo chambers from which to clamor for self verification and validation.

And as one who thought that the game would be tilted towards Loyola to get Gramma Tooite all into Monday night, I felt the national broadcast was fine. I did tune into the Michigan team cast on TBS, though, and thought WOW these guys are gooood.

I rather enjoyed the telecast from the Michigan perspective--but really ONLY because they were very good at doing the boradcast. To be honest, except for some various comments where their bias showed--I would not have thought they were Micdhigan fans at all.

I loved it, I didnt turn on the Loyola Teamcast or the other feed either.  I did like how they were able to be homers and didnt have to hide it.

i switched for the second half when things were...depressing. glad I did. They actually did a great job in addition to being more fun. The PBP guy was really good at just plain being a PBP guy, too.

I loved the TNT Michigan broadcast. I posted about it on the game thread, but I think the post was back on page 1 so most people missed the post.  I didn't watch the TBS feed at all. 

The Michigan fan feed had good announcers and they were openly rooting for Michigan. They cheered when we scored and worried when we didn't.  I'm definitely using that feed for Monday also.
