  1. I pay $12.50 a month. Go through the CAA website schedule then watch. It brings up the CAA deal on the screen as an option.
  2. Holy Crap! It worked! I didn't try the transfer thingy. I screen shot the ticket and texted to my wife. So I've got tickets printed and on our phones...ought to get us in. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL???
  3. Unfortunately, the D coordinators around the CAA are on to the plan. Sell out to stop Mofor, pressure JUC in the process and force him into mistakes. The early fumble by Mofor was a real deflator. They had a good drive going and had the Bisons on their heels for a while.
  4. In general, I think we need to dial back the anxiety and criticism. This is NDSU. They won 8 out of the last 10 national championships. FBS schools stopped scheduling them because they’d get beaten. This game was the FCS equivalent of Miami getting demolished by Alabama. A good team getting beaten by an elite team. And Miami gave up 44, UA only gave up 28 and played them pretty even for 30 minutes. NDSU has 13 players from the top recruiting states of Florida, Texas and California. We have 2, I think. They had three players drafted in the first four rounds of the NFL draft. We had none. Hopefully the players came out of the game without getting beat up too much. Let’s see how they perform this week against a team from the CAA.
  5. I did not expect a win. It’s just frustrating to see the same lack of discipline, stupid penalties and turnovers. And why in bloody hell do they insist on running inside when the line looks like they’re blocking a brick wall? When I saw JUC out there at the 5 minute mark when the game was clearly OVER…I think GG or Davis need a smack.
  6. Not sure why they’re throwing. NDSU seems to own the line of scrimmage on the run.
  7. Not that it’s a big deal, but Holy Cross just knocked off UCONN....38-28. Everyone beats UCONN.
  8. Just got the feed. Back out of the swirly, go to espn again and try once more.
  9. For a top program not being able to get the feed to espn....that’s pretty embarrassing.
  10. That was my guess, looking at the depth chart and Falcons beat writer 53 predictions.
  11. Hi kids. I’m a college dropout who made good. I’m making $4 million a year bouncing a basketball and lobbing up threes. And you can too! It helps to be 6-7 of course, but even you short dudes can succeed if you can bury the rock from 25’. So we are going to have a great time and learn some mad skills! All kidding aside, I’m very happy for his success and wish him a long and prosperous career...even though he comes from an LCC family. Imagine how insufferable LCC fans would be if he played for !?#@ena and went on to play for the Hawks.
  12. So, basically you are saying that the program and instructions for use are worthless without additional applications and help from the ticket office. Is it just me, or is it every time a change is made it’s screwed up royally by the AD? If I look around at the folks in my section at Casey, I’d say the vast majority did not grow up with cellphones and probably hand them off to their kids or grandkids when something needs to be done. I know, we gotta modernize, but it should have been EASY and SEAMLESS. Instead, it’s opaque, confusing and frustrating as hell. Poor job AD, poor job.
  13. Probably. ESPN says he could be a “surprise”, whatever that means. From what I’ve seen and read, in the NFL it’s all about being where the ball is gonna be since it’s already in the air while you’re running the route. The skills and the closing speeds of the DBs make it tough on the receiver. Of course, there’s blown assignments and open spots in a zone to find. They tend to say that in college, the QBs throw mostly to open receivers, while in the NFL, the QBs throw the receivers open I don’t know where Green falls in the skill set I mentioned, but he can certainly catch the ball...he proved that. I wish him luck. One or two years in the league will give someone a decent start on life.

  15. The instructions with the latest email blast indicate that parking hang tags will be printed for each game. Presumably some sort of wrist band or ID will be sent for hospitality tent entry (even though I never used them due to the new stupid location). Can I ass-u-me that they will mail said tags and wrist bands? Why didn't it say "You will be receiving hang tags and wrist bands in the mail if you are eligible to receive them"? Just for the heck of it, I went to the UNC football fan forum to see if there was anything on our recent transfer. Didn't spot anything. But you know what was there? Posters complaining about the new mobile ticketing system...which is apparently not the same as ours. So we are not alone.
  16. Update....had to change my password because the old one seemed not to work anymore. Tried the mobile phone approach and it worked, up until it said to load to Apple Wallet...nothing....nothing....nothing. Tried it a couple times. Nothing. Signed out. Went to desktop and tried again. Worked OK, but then there was a thing that says "Print at home tickets are not available at this venue at this time".....crap....I ignored it. A couple of runs through an overly complex form and voila! It downloaded the tickets....and 10, count'em 10 sheets of 8 x 11 later...I at least have hard copies of the tickets. My faith in our AD and this ticketing system has not been restored. Perhaps I'll photograph the tickets and put them on my phone some place. Seems easier than what they have set up.
  17. No luck so far in getting the ticketing thing to work. I expected nothing less. Can't even get it to accept my user name and password. I think they used the same people who coordinated the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

  19. Very interesting article. It helps to explain things. Hope JD takes good care of himself. https://dailygazette.com/2021/08/11/ahead-of-return-to-casey-stadium-with-pll-former-ualbany-lacrosse-star-colarussos-experience-dealing-with-type-1-diabetes-something-i-want-to-share/
