"I see all these people claiming to be 'realistic' saying they think Michigan is going to win. F**K THAT S**T. Let's throw out all reason and available observable evidence and blindly believe what we want to believe! That'll show those 'realists'!

WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING ON THIS SITE???"

Solid, solid stuff, there.

It's cord-cutting and the internet in general. Why the hell am I going to turn on ESPN for highlights where I have to wait 'til they get to the game(s) I care about when I can just fire up my phone, do a quick google search, and come up with an assortment of highlight packages of the game(s) I want to see, ranging in length from 1.5 to 20 minutes? And I can quickly find out final (and pending) scores of other games I might want to know the outcome of but don't particularly care to watch.

People who say ESPN is losing business because of the network's alleged "politics" are babies who are gloating that they stabbed the network to death out of spite when in reality it was shot in the face by the internet.

According to kenpom's experience metric, OSU is the sixth-youngest team in D-I. Out of 351 teams. They ARE young. The defense is relatively fine (approximately 30th in the country); the offense is the problem (about 150th in the country). The primary problems with the offense? Poor free throw shooting and too many turnovers. Those sound like issues of youth to me.

I cut the cord in March and I don't miss it at all. Got two Amazon FireSticks and stream Sling TV on them ($20/month for ESPN, ESPN2, Food Network, HGTV, IFC, CNN, TNT, TBS, and a few others), along with Netflix and Hulu Plus. And we bought a $5 antenna that gets local over-the-air channels. Cut our monthly bill by more than half. The only things I used to watch that I don't get are BTN and FX/X. Absolutely the right decision for my family.

I just did this with my 5-year-old. Took her to see TFA yesterday. Leading up to it I had her watch Star Wars, Empire, and Jedi. Fuck the prequels. They're terrible and I think the new creative team is going to do everything they can to distance themselves from those garbage, garbage movies, so I think you're 100% safe in skipping them.

If you're considering cord-cutting, I think Hulu Plus is the best "replacement," because they get current shows like a day after they air. Plus it has like a thousand movies from the Criterion Collection. If you're looking for original content and a mountain of non-current TV to plow through, Netflix is probably your best bet.
