Not to change the subject of this big choke, but I get Espn3 for free, why don't you?

National stage = Central chokes.

And I don’t want to head $h!t about what a great season it was. No playof win after spending a good part of the season being ranked. Grade F. Go home and get a gd special teams

The worst part is former NEC members Albany (CAA) and Monmouth (Big South) both win playoff games today.

Central will be mired in mediocrity as long as we stay in the NEC.

Fact is we will never be anything but NCAA fodder most of the time.

As disappointing game as this was, there were some highlights this season.

#1 - Thank you to Aaron Winchester for finishing his college career at Central. He was spectacular all season long. A real leader and a true Blue Devil. Wish him the best in all his future endeavors. He is a winner and will be whatever he does next.

All right there is a lot of negativity here, that is understandable.
Let's look on the bright side...
Could someone help me with that? I can't find it.

Well...we keep coach Mac for a while.

And how do you get ESPN for free? I have Roku and I couldn’t find any way at all. I did find CNN and other news outlets but not ESPN.

I can add to the negativity, really hoops? Lol anyhoo heard someone who appeared to have an in to the players and said there were several high level defensive players who are unhappy with the coaching staff and will look to play elsewhere next season. Toss a new qb into the mix and we’ll, ugh...

Oh and Sky, espn can be found a couple of different ways. One , go to the central app and click video, it will take you directly to the game, you can use the espn app and do the same and lastly some cable TVs have an app for that as well. No mater how you watch, CCSU chokes when they get on the big stage.

Curious to see what the announcers were saying during the second half? From what I saw, they upped the pass rush, exposed our defense and lit us up in the air. How can they come out in the second half and look like they never played the game before? Defense picked a hell of a time. Coach Mac with the crucial mistake of sending that field goal unit out, period. Blew too many chances in the first half and it will went down hill after that personal foul for throwing the ball at a player. So livid right now.

Sky,
That's what I do on my laptop. Go to the schedule, find the game, click the video icon, takes you right there, watch the game on the laptop or hook it up with a hdmi cord to the TV and watch the game. I have not figured out how to do it with just a Smart TV but I think it might be possible.

Tried all that Hill but they keep asking for my cable TV provider which I don’t have. Anyway, now that I have ESPN3 on Sling TV for a month now, I can watch the basketball game against UML tomorrow. Or...I can go to Clearwater beach and watch babes in bikinis. Tough choice...not. :P

Oh crap, that’s right, you do need that. You’re lucky you didn’t see it. They looked like garbage in the second half.

“CCSU absolutely needs to up the schedule in the years upcoming and improve the caliber of opponents.” Larryl9797

Absolutely correct. Unfortunately the addition of the MerriPost duo to the NEC adds two more meaningless conference games and limits the opportunity add higher level opponents. Our association with this conference is holding us back.
