Important information in regards to Rice game video stream

Recommended Posts

As you may or may not know, the webstream for games which are not carried by TV are the responsibility of each home team school in C-USA. For example, the Bethune Cookman game was UNT's responsibility and we streamed that game.  It was our cameras, our graphics and our call.  So it's Rice's responsibility to stream our FB game this weekend. Our guys have been in contact with the conference office since there has been no live event set up to this point on the CUSA TV platform. We have been told by the conference office that they are indeed streaming it and as such are trying to get Rice to publish and create the live event information. With that said -- Rice has had some turnover in their video department and we don't know if they have hired the old employee's replacement so the stream could end up being spotty. The good folks at the AD just wanted to inform you for those asking or interested in the stream. We don't want to say it will 100% be streamed until we have a link. And to let you know, any issues with the stream should be directed towards Rice athletics not UNT.  gmg

CUSA should slap them on the wrist and let us do it.

Harry, if there is a streaming link, please post in someplace in a thread. I've had a hard time finding things on MeanGreenSports in the past and hope a revamp of the site will happen. "Search" is a good thing and with all the tools available today really not that hard to do. 

As for Rice not streaming, I'm not going to be too annoyed as I don't know the circumstances of the staffing and replacement staffing issue. Yeah, you they could just bring in a temp to handle this and there are plenty of people in Houston they could bring in for a single game. If they can't find them in Houston, I know there are a bunch here in DFW. But not knowing the rules they are working under I always give folks the benefit of the doubt.

Thanks for the heads-up, Harry. When I read this I felt a fresh new ray of light coming from the Athletic Department...put a smile on this old face.

Rice game link

http://conferenceusa.com/watch/?Live=466&path=north_texas

if people buy a day pass, $6.95, buy it through UNT's CUSA site. Any subscription sold through our sites helps to give us a bigger share of the dollars. Also, they can watch any other stream going through CUSA tv for a 24 hour period with the day pass.

Wow! Pretty bush league of Rice to not stream their home game that isn't on TV. No wonder the Southwest Conference collapsed.

Oh goodness me, that's funny. Blaming the demise of the SWC on (then) poor lil' ole Rice... lulz.

I streamed the Bethune Cookman game through the CUSA site and the $6.95 is worth it.  I was trying out my new internet connection out here in the boonies and the stream worked like a charm.

I thought we did a great job on that telecast.  Very professional.  I was super pleased.  I hope everyone has that same standard

^ This. 

I think having the use of the radio broadcast overlaid on the video was pretty ingenious.

Do you know if it will be free after it airs like the BC game was?

Years ago Arkansas AD Frank Broyles in a feature article by Mickey Spagnola in the now defunct Dallas Times-Herald fired the first shot toward the SWC demise.  He said the SWC private schools were not towing the rope & there were too many Texas schools in the SWC. (Probably even back then prepping UA for an SEC membership bid).

If UH gets in the Big 12 look for UT & OU to start trying to pull a TAMU & leave for new surroundings.  Actually, I think that happens anyway whether UH is admitted or not.

I don't know about OU, but with UT, I'd say that's a given.

Back to the subject at hand.  UNT did a great job with streaming the BC game.  I have already paid my 6.95 for the Rice game.  I would like to think a school with a 6 billion dollar Endowment can figure out how to stream the game.

  I was thinking the same thing

 Much harder for the Longhorns. In my opinion no conference takes them with the Longhorn network attached  unless they really change the share agreements.

It won't let me purchase a 24 hour pass??? Why??

UPDATE: got it to purchase the 24 hour pass... but, now it acts like I don't have it as it keeps prompting me to log in to watch.

I can't get it to let me purchase a day pass. An orange box appears for a millisecond and disappears and I'm asked to log in again.

      "The guys are hurt right now," Rice coach David Bailiff said. "There will be a lot of soul-searching. And I have to, too. Everything in this program begins with me. I've got to look at what we're doing. Players win games, coaches lose them and this is one we darn sure should've won."
      Rice's quick start didn't suggest a wild finish.
      Rice (0-4, 0-1) had 157 total yards to North Texas' minus-17 and 12 first downs to the Mean Green's zero by the end of the first quarter. North Texas then went on the 28-3 run sparked by freshman quarterback Mason Fine. The Mean Green took a 21-20 lead – its first of the night - off Jeffrey Wilson's 75-yard touchdown run eight minutes into the third quarter.
      Wilson was huge for North Texas with 18 carries for 157 yards and three touchdowns. Fine finished completing 17-of-29 passes for 224 yards and a score.
      It's demoralizing for Rice and jumpstarts North Texas' season.

      What to Know About North Texas
      The Mean Green won just one game in 2015, so at least they already matched that win total under new head coach Seth Littrell. Freshman quarterback Mason Fine made his first career start against Bethune-Cookman and completed 11 of 22 passes for 108 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. He added 46 yards on the ground. The goal is for Fine and this offense to make a little progress each week, but he completed just six of 22 attempts for 66 yards with no touchdowns and one interception against Florida, which held the Mean Green to 53 yards of total offense. While that certainly was taking a step back, the Gators do have one of the top defenses in the country. We'll see what type of performance Fine provides this week.
      Advantages
      Offense: North Texas. There is at least hope with Fine at quarterback.

      Defense: Rice. North Texas is dead-last in the FBS in third-down conversion percentage defense.

      Special Teams: Even. Both squads have unblemished kickers—ones that have not missed a field goal or extra point this year.

      Coaching: Rice. Bailiff has taken the Owls to four bowl games in his career.

      Intangibles: North Texas. The Mean Green are looking to avenge their loss from last season.
