  1. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/cbb-central/id1434086949#episodeGuid=http%3A%2F%2Fcbbcentral.com%2F%3Fp%3D9744 Touched on Canada trip, his past, AE past, Australia recruiting, current roster/season.
  2. Is the replay posted on their site?
  3. I win if Virginia wins but I'm starting to think Texas Tech takes it down Monday night
  4. Odds on that are probably around +1100 if you go by what the analytics sites think about each game and parlay the 4 wins.
  5. Think we are getting to this point with Lulka, but you gotta remember for most of this season so far every single time we'd throw it down to a big it'd clang right off their hands. Bigs are definitely starting to improve to a point where we can get back to a more normal offense for us, but the current one of perimeter/shoot threes seems to me to be a product of the big man issues we had the first half of the season.
  6. For sure, I have written down somewhere of what games I thought would be wins, which games I thought were toss ups and which games I thought would be losses in OOC from before the season started. If I can find it I'll type it up on here and explain.
  7. Yeah I've always been a big fan of breaking down the games by quarters (which KenpPom displays well) or stretches between media timeouts. Was a problem for last year's team also. Honestly it happens to almost every team, you just have to be good enough around those stretches to overcome it and do your best to prevent that stretch from determining the whole game. Team is young, team is talented. They'll be fine. I get anyone who is upset because when you invest your money and more importantly your time in something you deserve to have an opinion whether it's positive or negative. Just want to keep expectations realistic.
  8. I get no one wants to hear it, but winning makes everything seem great and losing makes it seem like everything is falling apart. If we beat Providence last night everyone is jumping for joy and this team would still have the same exact problems it did going into the game.
  9. We're not good, but I just don't know what people expect out of this group right now. We all knew the situation coming into the year. Most of these games haven't been fun to watch, but let's not go off the rails. If it's a lost year that absolutely sucks as a fan, but it happens. It's not like we're a team full of upperclassmen like Binghamton last year. There have been multiple halves of basketball that were absolutely brutal to watch, but that's what happens with a roster like this.
  10. It just depends on what type of improvement you're expecting. We should improve every practice and every game, but so is every other team out there and almost every single one will have more experienced rosters. To me it's like any skill, the more you do it the better you get, but new issues always appear along the way. One day after you've put a ton of work into it it either clicks for you or it doesn't. Hopefully it comes together for us this year.
  11. Not really, but I didn't expect us to be. I know people are worked up over that ugly second half tonight, but that's whatever to me...second half of the Dartmouth game at home hurt more than this one for me. We have guys who just haven't played at this level enough yet and we're adding in even more pieces that are young and behind schedule with injuries. I don't expect it to be pretty until it clicks and the players get some confidence, maybe doesn't even happen at all this year. The team is talented and seems to trust each other, but I don't even know if most of the players trust themselves at times right now...if that makes sense.
  12. So from what I can tell you'll be able to watch the game live tonight (7pm) if you log into the Fox Sports Go app with your cable/sat provider. For me it's listed as YES at 7pm in the Fox Sports Go app on my Roku. Haven't tried it yet on my Amazon Fire stick, but i'll give that a go in a couple of minutes. If someone wants to watch the game and needs a log in to be able to do so just let me know.
  13. FSN (Fox Sports Networks) is just the shorthand for all of the local affiliates of Fox Sports rather than their national channels of FS1 and FS2. Would check the affiliates your provider may have and see if it is on any of those live. Comcast used to have FCS Atlantic, Central and Pacific (Fox College Sports) where you used to be able to find these games at times. Other than that it's local sports networks such as YES/MSG for NY/NJ. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_Sports_Networks
  14. Think they went out of their way to put it up as an extra in years past. Not sure if they just haven't gone out of their way to do it this year yet, or it's a result of how things went after he leaked the Joe Cremo news.
  15. Yeah I've seen it anywhere from 15-17. Less interested in a W/L and more interested in how we look. Never know though, could steal it, and I wouldn't be surprised if we do.
  16. Always loved this trick and found it hilarious they never figured out to stop the workaround.
  17. Noticed ESPN had a bunch of issues this weekend with different events on my Roku's. Was watching different feeds in multiple rooms throughout the weekend and almost every one had a quality issue at some point.
  18. I went to the Iona site last night where they have it listed as ESPN3 Looking over the stream sheet from AE again it only lists home AE games. 11/9 @ Iona ESPN3 11/14 vs BU ESPN+ 11/17 @ Canisius ESPN3 11/19 vs Oneonta ESPN3 11/23 @ Milwaukee ESPN+ 12/8 vs Monmouth ESPN3 That's our early streaming schedule at least from what I had found.
  19. Thing is AE just dropped their streaming schedule and it's very ESPN+ heavy. Few games on ESPN3. Here's the link to the full schedule. Has WBB and MBB on it. https://s3.amazonaws.com/sidearm.sites/americaeast.sidearmsports.com/documents/2018/11/1/2018_19_Basketball_Schedule_E3_E_.pdf
  20. Not sure if anyone has said it on this board yet, but the Iona game is officially listed as being on ESPN3 now. Was a toss up between ESPN3/ESPN+ last I saw.
  21. Jeff Goodman released his secret scrimmage list Albany at Buffalo 10/20, vs Drexel 10/27
  22. haha amen, winning is all that matters. I just wouldn't waste much money on advertising. I have no idea what the numbers are, but I think you already have your core fans in the area and it's not going to expand much without buzz for the team or buzz for the home atmosphere. Easier said than done, but if you get the students you get the home atmosphere that makes a difference.
  23. RIP 50 cent slices, I think of you every time I pay $3.50 for one.
