Should we win...we clinch the top seed in Pod play (and avoid having to travel back to WKU).

 

I said it last time, but we should have 5K for this game.

Heard Dave say that there are gonna be a lot of kids and organizations there as well. Probably gonna be like the WKU game, but probably with more true fans

You can't sleep on anyone in CUSA.   When it is conference play all bets are off.  We really need to protect our home court.  How many suits will Coach Mac bring to Frisco?

UNT wins.  Going to be not a close one though.  I am setting the line at 17, mark it.

I was shocked by the line being 8.5 for the Charlotte game. I would say 5.5 

That was a classic bad beat for those who had Charlotte

That’s what I’m excited about. Won’t be able to make it, so it’s perfect and it’s not the terrible quality of +

ESPN + quality has been pretty decent all season

A win gets us an automatic bid(as regular season conference champion) to the NIT in case we don’t make the NCAAs.

I don’t think so.  If we lose some games in pod play, another team could move ahead.  Pod play is still regular season.

Unfortunately, it's not accessible for those of us without cable.

Who doesn’t have cable?

I'm actually over 40 (barely).

If you have cable, I suspect you either 1) grew up with it and don't give it a second thought, and/or 2) never thought about how much a money suck it is.  I myself did not have cable growing up, and am hyper-aware of my spending habits/budget.

Sometimes I really freakin hate not having the big sports networks around, but I can't justify the cost when I only pay attention to one or two networks.    Especially when - outside of one or two sports events - I watch less than 1 hour/week.

RE: cost, I've never really looked into the "why", but I suspect ESPN is the sole reason cable is so freaking pricey.  Sports and all the contracts associated with it (player salaries, media exclusivity) are astronomically pricey and that cost is passed into the CSP consumers.  Take out ESPN and Fox Sports and I imagine cable service would be on par with most other streamers.... appx 10-15 bucks a month.

All that being said, it's nice to see consumers and competitors are figuring this out.  Slowly but surely, sports is leaking into other viewing/streaming options.

About 6 months ago I read somewhere that Disney wants ESPN+ to be the Netflix of sports.  We'll see.

I believe you're correct. 2nd pod teams can't pass us but all pod games count in league standings.

Ah, but it is.   It’s still being carried on ESPN+ as well.

If this is the case, they need to improve the DVR capabilities. Their player is pretty bad compared to other streaming services out there.

Not sure what you are referring to. I don’t see a DVR function within ESPN+

@UNT 90 Grad thanks for the heads up!

Almost everyone I know had cable/ some form of television provider. Technically we have streaming tv via direct tv now, but that’s considered cable by some and streaming television by others. We still get 100 plus channels and don’t pay too much. 🤷🏼‍♂️
