  1. Thanks to all who replied. Indeed, looks like it should be showing on BTN2GO. I get the same message as LkwdSteve. No way to tell whether it will work when the time comes, but if not, I'll switch to Minny vs. OSU as my backup plan for tonight by paying for BTN+

    I have Comcast/Xfinity and will watch Iowa / Iowa State via BTN2GO. I won't spring for the BTN + subscription so if you watch the Gophers please give some updates.


  2. Match in Minnesota.  BTNPlus/BTN2Go doesn't show the match after I logged into BTNPlus with subscription and Xfinity cable plan.  Over on Ok State's preview, they say it will be on BTN______.

     

    A few days ago I though the UM site said it was only on BTNPlus. I have Comcast and called them and was told BTNPlus requires one of their digital packages which I don't have and I don't have a personal subscription. I was hoping it would be on the BTN or BTN2GO. I need to stay near the house today, so if you have a broadcast update would you please post it?

    1, 3, 4, 8, and 10 have the Non Wrestling Forum to thank for the overwhelming majority of their count. I'll stick with quality over quantity.


  4. Hahaha, yea ever hear of the old saying, " I" before "e" except after "c" ? Learn it folks!

    :D

     

    I like that rule because it's never wrong..atheism, caffeine, leisure, neighbor, neither, protein, seize, stein, vein.

     

    Nor is it ever wrong with family names...Stein, Frankenstein , Weizmann, Klein, Schneider, Eisenhower.

     

    So why don't you cut him a little slack there Einstein. ;)


  5. So if I understand the op's point, he understands that highschool success is a predictor to collegiate success but "sometimes" it's not. There are great prep wrestlers who don't pan out and successful colleague wrestlers who weren't prep stars.

     

    So at the end of the day what's the real point, OP? Is it you want to point out that you have some enlightened sense to see the bigger picture better than others? It seems to me you've started and continue a thread based on a strawman of this mysterious group of "some people".


  6. DeGrasse Tyson is doing great good in promoting the sciences much like Michio Kaku is doing - and the fact he was a former wrestler is an added plus for the sport. And yeah I agree both DeGrasse Tyson and Kaku are mainly entertainers but their current contributions should not undermine their earlier work. Neither are in the realm of Hawking in my opinion.

     

    But Smokeyjoe the topic is Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Finding self happiness in one's own contributions in life is the cornerstone of self esteem not any need for gratuitous validation and attention from others. What on earth triggered such a self-serving, self-promoting post? Feel free to PM me as this is off-topic. It's just your post was an eye-popper.


  7. If you don't like what's showing then change the channel, but otherwise I pretty much agree. I wished he realize his gimmick is tired, at least in my view, and retire it gracefully instead of wringing it out. I never find much value in DF's posts and I don't care for posts that are nothing more than bait to rile people up so I don't give them much of my attention. But at least they're usually offered for entertainment value which is better than some contribution by members on genuine wresting topics.

     

    I do wish the mods would police and delete

     

    *off-topic posts more aggressively

     

    *create a "wasteland" type of forum disabling the ability to add new threads to it and move bait threads there

     

    *actually warn and give members time-outs who want to drag every post off-topic or post wasteland material.


  8. Not sure they have done anything illegal just unethical but it is obvious they do not want you to stop a subscription and have done everything possible to keep you from finding the link to stop the automatic payments.

     

    I don't know about Texas but I know that some states Attorney General's Offices (and local district attorney offices) track consumer protection complaints particularly as it relates to websites. The state's AG office or local DA's office can evaluate whether there is any fraud or deceit and actually apply pressure including court orders to a company to make corrections and come into compliance.


  9. Cattlemen's is not a chsin restaurant in Oklahoma. It has been in business at the same location for about 90 years. Still it is not my favorite steakhouse in OKC.

     

    I don't know where Ryan is from but there is a Cattlemen's chain in California, perhaps that's his confusion. But I do agree with him if he's mistakenly thinking of the California Cattlemen's in the Sacramento and Bay Areas.


  10. Minnesota fans showed up and packed their own gym for their on campus Dual meet with Penn State. They sold the place out.

     

    Minnesota fans wouldn't go anywhere near Columbus, Ohio this past weekend for the NWCA Duals.

     

    J Rob should watch what his own fan base is DOING. Forget what they say, watch what they actually DO.

     

    Quite the hubris to call out J. You ain't got the whiskers or horsepower, greenhorn.


  11. D. Alton was doing what he felt he needed to do to win and I commend him for it. He could of clammed up like Kingsley or Zberg to minimize bonus but he didn't. Ness is dangerous and hit a nice move, it happens. I am actually optimistic he AAs this year.

     

    That's an intersting comment. Alton was higher ranked yet you're commending him for continuing to attack and not clam up like Kingsley or Zberg who were supposed to lose...and lose big.

     

    Do you think he should endorse what Kingsley or Zilverberg did? That would be stupid. Dylan was behind and had to score to win the match. He did exactly what he should have done, which is try to get Ness on the ground. He just got stuck. It happens.

     

    Actually he should kept it on topic of Alton and not wandered into some asinine logic by bringing up Kingsley and Zberg. Yes, Alton was behind but he's ranked 4 wrestling the 8 guy. I wouldn't expect Alton to clam up like he was non-ranked wrestling the 1 or 2 guy.
