EMU v. Ball State open thread

November 5, 2011

Once again, it looks like a beautiful day for a football game. The forecast calls for the weather to be clear, a 0% chance of precipitation, and light winds, with temperatures ranging from about 40 during the morning tailgating time up to the lower 50s, peaking out at about 52 degrees.

If you’re not able to make it to the football game this afternoon, there are several other ways to keep up to date.

  • The game will be broadcast on a bunch of stations. Real, over-the-air broadcast. In southeastern Michigan it will be on WXYZ (ABC 7).
  • The game will also be broadcast online on ESPN3/WatchESPN.
  • The game will NOT be on Eagle All-Access, due to the broadcast contract.
  • Listen to the game on WEMU, 89.1 FM. Or, if you’re out of the area, listen online for free.
  • If you’d rather read about the game than watch or listen, you can follow the tweetcast from @EMUFB11 and my comments at @eagletotemblog.
  • If you hunt around online, you’ll find several websites claiming to have free streaming video of the game. I’m dubious, and some of the sites seem sketchy, so I won’t link them here, but they shouldn’t be too hard to find if you look. But really, with free over-the-air broadcast and ESPN3 streaming it (free and available to most), why would you bother with these other sites?

You could also talk about it in the comments here. And if you can’t wait until this to talk about football, feel free to get a head start this morning. It’s an open thread, so as always, comments on any topic are legit.
