    Cool. Well then, I should provide you a serious reply. I’ve been using streaming services since Netflix first launched their digital streaming in 2008. Up until 2013-2014ish streaming sports was only possible through sketchy illegal streaming sites littered with malware and popups. Something I, along with most of us, had become an expert at maneuvering.

    Through a combination of Chromecast sticks and various streaming memberships since then (Vue, Hulu, Roku) I’ve managed to catch every Cyclone game of any sport without much effort. Fast forward to 2020, when the Big 12 as a conference moves fully into streaming-only, one could easily presume an ESPN-owned Longhorn network, whose games display front and center on the ESPN app/service we all subscribe to now would play when you click “play”.

    But nope, the mobile app just doesn’t respond, and the smartTV app just says a vague “unable to play” without any mention of LHN. That’s utter failure.

    kudos to @Cyched for the Reddit mention. Worked like a charm.

    Got robbed 2 points there at the end.

    Overall a good half. Didn't finish well at all though. Besides 1 comically bad shot by Nixon, he had a good half. Mike needs to play less in the 2nd half.

    Coach Prohm is as confused as I am on how to make ISU better. He was supposed to carry on from where Fred Hoiberg left. Having a high scoring team, but is going to happen when the coach disrupts the rhythm with his time out once we start to score?

    These are 2 bad teams playing basketball. Yet KSU and OSU are worse. Big 12 is pretty weak this year.

    Thank you for your service to the program, Nixon and Jacobson.

    But it is time to take those two out back, tie them to a tree, and bash them with a shovel.

    I've often wondered who Nixon modeled his game after. Today I realized it was Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Along Came Polly.

    So are we going to make an insanely long S&C show like Texas has in this never ending one.
