While a good step in digital for the league, it’s a shame that live audio or video aren’t implemented. Maybe next year.
That’s why wireless security doesn’t stop when the game starts; the Superdome will use spectral analysis equipment to detect interference. “We’re always monitoring the network. So we have a plan in place if there is an interfering signal to identify that and remediate that problem,” Stewart said.
In last year’s Super Bowl, 12,946 attendees were on the stadium WiFi: They downloaded over 225 GB and uploaded 145 GB.
Let’s just say the NFL is ready this year.
The reasons that exceptional defenses fare so much better in the Super Bowl are still somewhat murky, but this factor bodes well for this year’s 49ers, whose defense belongs in the elite group, according to S.R.S. (it ranks 17th among Super Bowl teams),” wrote Silver, in part.
It’s always a good sign when Nate Silver picks your team to win. Go Niners.
Urban Meyer isn’t heading to Columbus to coach Ohio State, at least not now. WKMG was the first to report that Meyer had agreed to a 7 year/$40 million contract with the Buckeyes.
So this means one of three things — Urban will join Ohio State later on, he has been in talks but won’t take the job, or he hasn’t been in any kind of discussions like he says. And if by chance Urban is being truthful, it also means that David Pingalore’s sources are spitting pure bullshit.
The story is too big for sources to miss this bad.
And what about the assistant coaches? How awkward is it for Durkin and Mariotti, two of the coaches that are supposedly going to join Urban in Columbus? Their phones and inboxes must be blowing up. How are the sources so aware of these details when they can’t even get the main story right?
Perhaps the gem is found in the student newspaper: “An OSU spokesman on Wednesday did not deny that Meyer will be the Buckeyes next coach.”
“We have not been commenting on rumors and speculation,” university spokesman Jim Lynch said in an email to The Lantern.
Here’s a hint: Go get the actual story from football sources and don’t rely on a university spokesman who probably has no insight into the situation to begin with.
This whole situation…what a disaster all around.
Now that baseball season has started back up, it’s tough to keep track of what is going on when multiple games are being played.
RUWT to the rescue.
The website ranks games live based on their “roots” system. A quick scan of root count shows how popular and how exciting certain games are. So while you may not know exactly what is going on, you’ll be able to flip to the right channel or gamecast to see thrilling action rather than watching the 16-0 blowout or the 0-0 snoozer.
