    Chris, I agree about being fair, but how much does it really take to pay attention to the game you are announcing. OK, they're kids and get a pass, even from me, but I stand by the "worst broadcast" I have seen. I will, in these sensitive times, change that to the broadcast that I "feel shows excellent artistic value, yet could just use a slightly more detailed description of on ice activities".

    I picked the split last weekend (on the podcast) and my preseason prediction (on the podcast) is that UNO will finish 5th in the NCHC — still stand by that prediction. 

    As far as streaming coverage went...

    Each week in Bridget’s “Series Preview” posts she outlines how to watch the games. 

    This week you could choose to subscribe to BTN+ (which is an adjunct to their cable/satellite channels that requires an extra fee to stream online) or Flo Sports (which carries the BTN+ feed during the season — along with WCHA games and Atlantic Hockey games). 

    Flo Sports (if you don’t commit to a year) is $30 per month. That sounds pricey, but considering that the series at UAA is coming up in a couple of weeks, it seemed prudent to get a month of that so we could stream both series during the 30-day subscription period.

    Thanks Jon, looks like a great schedule, on top of BTN and WCHA, they also have some NCHC thrown in...

    No problem... I wasn't too familiar with them, but I might have to signup for an annual membership in the future. :-)

    The full wall is the blue line.  I love the term half wall.  It makes hockey feel distinct.  

    I didn't know BTN+, or "plus" as Jim says, required an extra fee.  I brought up the app on my phone or ipad and couldn't find the game, but I don't think I pay for it so that answers that.

    You don’t pay for the app, but click on the game and it says ‘subscription required’. I never get that with football...

    The “+” designated games require extra money — even if you have a cable/satellite/streaming bundle that includes the various BTN channels. 

    It’s basically for the games that “aren’t televised” that the B1G streams online.

    I couldn't even find the game so never saw anything about subscribing.  Doesn't matter, I wouldn't have subscribed anyway.

    "Mavpuck" should be your everyday source of news and sarcasm! The MSM doesn't cover Omaha.
