I’m not sure how it is for other people, but with the app on my Samsung TV I have to forward and reverse the games feeling like it’s 1990. And if I accidentally go out of the app I have to go all the way back in and re-type in each letter of the team to do a search. As far as I know you can’t save your favorites. So each time I have to do a search. Inadvertently (because I’m used to YouTube TV back arrow), it takes me out of the app, and I have to start all over again. The landing page does not recognize your favorites. It has all kinds of other dumb future games listed.

If you have favorites set up on your general ESPN account and it's tied to your ESPN+, then you shouldn't have to search at all. I have a Samsung TV and Cincinnati is always the first game when I open the app around the tip/kick off. Not sure what is happening with you having to rewind/fast forward either...I can't say I've ever had an experience where the game isn't live-ish (there is always a slight delay from live given the nature of streaming).

RE: ECU 1/12/2022
I understand why it’s a thing but I can’t stand it. It feels like I’m watching on the old console tube TV that I garbage picked when I lived on Ohio avenue in college. Heck, it makes me miss Channel 19 games. Bad production. Bad picture. Somehow makes every game feel like the Ohio Valley game of the week.

Didn't watch the game. But looking at the box score.... Lahkin led the team in rebounding (7) despite only playing 12 minutes.

He has a lot of natural ability but still has a way to go in terms of adjusting to the college game in the United States.

You see little things that make you believe that he can be a stud down the line but he also does things that can cost the team a game.

Honestly I really only trust MAW, DDJ, Newman, Davenport, and Ado out there in key moments. Maybe Koval too.

The rest of the team plays too fast or is completely unaware of game situations.

Bolded, so true. I believe he's going to be an excellent player. I wonder when his growth spurt occurred--how long he's been 6'11"? It's just going to take time to round out his footwork, positioning, and shooting touch and I hope "long" isn't three more years.

Regarding those other AAC scores, one thing our conference teams have done consistently since it began is rack up terrible losses. Houston was special last season; UC was for several. But after that, Memphis has underperformed for their talent and the rest have endured dreadful losses pre-conference every year often limiting the AAC to no more than two ranked teams. While I remain focused on Big XII football opportunities, we won't have to worry about conference roundball foes taking care of business out of conference. And conference wins will get much more attention from the pollsters and media.

Finally just read here that X lost at home last night. The beginning of the "Steele Swoon" we witness beginning about this time every year? Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

Would love to see it but even though X was favored last night a close loss to a higher ranked team at home is hardly a cause for concern. I've only seen them play us and they looked invincible then but they have a lot of experienced players I expect they'll continue to play well unfortunately.

Couldnt get the app to work through my roku a couple of times so I gave up. Tried to throw it up on the screen in my living room from airplay and it stuttered so bad I couldnt watch it. Seemed okay on the ipad but who wants to watch a game on the ipad when you are at home? Everything else i try to do works fine so i am blaming espn.

Not only gettable, but 4-0 here (though unlikely) puts them in great position for the tournament. We'd pick up a Q1 win vs Wichita, a Q2 vs Temple, and then improve our shaky Q3/Q4 record to a respectable point. All of this before an important two game stretch against Memphis and Houston.

I think you can get a lightening cord to HDMI convertor for like 20 bucks on Amazon. Though I don't have an IPad so I'm not sure how easy it is to connect like that.

ESPN app works great through my Roku (everything does, it was a fantastic small investment). If I want to use the main TV that has the Apple TV, I have to stream from my phone and project to the Apple TV.

ESPN+ is the only app that looks like WXIX in 1980 with the two dials on the TV when watching via roku. Even if I turned off the sound to stop listening to amateur hour on air talent, the visual quality from the limited camera angles blows. It all screams low rent. I hate that most of the season is on this. Please God get us to the B12 schedule ASAP.

Hey Bruce, check the recruiting thread...wondering if you can give us any insight into Jesse Meyer since he's from over in your stomping grounds.

RE: ECU 1/12/2022
I am thinking of having Jesse Meyer on my podcast "Bruce Monnin's Computer Points" very soon to talk about the whole "preferred walk on" thing.

Saw Jesse live in one game this year. Had 4 catches for 66 yards (and 1 punt for 45 yards, BTW). Jesse didn't make it into my game article as the running backs dominated in that particular game.

In his junior year I saw him catch 6 passes for 100 yards and 2 TD's. He also had a 58-yard TD run. I still have access to the Hudl videos.

Seems like a solid kid whom I expect to contribute to UC before he is done. I am already looking forward to coming to Nippert in 3-4 years to write an article for the Celina Daily Standard about a local boy who rose from a preferred walk-on to a scholarship player to a major contributor.

Talked to his aunt earlier today. The family is excited he is going to UC (went to Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl). Both his father and uncle were extraordinary athletes for my local Minster Wildcats. Too bad his Dad moved to Coldwater :)
