    Amazing how much not having the scores, ruins the experience.

    NCAA Session 1 Thread

    I could swear that last year, it was possible to get 2/3/4/etc mats going in the same browser window, and then choose which mats to watch in each 'spot'. Did they change things, or am I just not seeing how to get that setup?

    Midlands Lowdown from Mudflap

    Somewhat new around here, only read a few of his posts. I really want to believe mudflap is a real person. Think I just might decide to.
  7. Maybe if enough of us ask for this, flo/track/espn could possibly consider? I'd like to be able to watch matches without knowing the winner, after the match/event has concluded. The way to accomplish this, ideally, would be if the content site provided the bracket without any revealing info. As an example of what I have to go thru, check out the attached image of the Junior Worlds 74kg bracket. Frequently I'm unable to watch events live (Worlds), or there are many matches I'd like to see and I can't watch one without seeing reference to another (ESPN's NCAA coverage). "Luckily" the sport is still niche enough that I can go about my normal day without worrying about spoilers, as long as I avoid social media and select internet sites. So then it is just a matter of navigating to the bracket page and loading up the matches, without seeing anything revealing. Which is probably pretty comical for anyone watching me accomplish that. Squinting my eyes so everything is blurry, positioning other windows in such a way to block information, even asking my wife to get a match ready to go and then pass the computer back to me. And of course most of the time I have to have the sound off, because the announcers will make references to other completed matches that I haven't seen yet. You can imagine, looking at the 74kg bracket attached, how challenging it can be to watch, for example, the second round Mark Hall v R Valiev match. Once the bracket page is up and I've chosen the weight, and moved another window to block most of the page, I slowly move the blocking window to the right until just the barest corner of the green arrow icon is revealed. But if I go too far, I might accidentally see the first character of the winner's name (the round1 Diana/Yamasaki match for example)....so, I have to cross and blurr my eyes. Then when the mouse is positioned, close my eyes completely and click. When the match window then pops up, quickly (with eyes blurred) move a blocking window over any possible "related videos" on the sidebar, mute the sound, and move a blocking window to the bottom portion of the window where other results and scheduled matches are scrolling by. If all that works, rejoice because I can watch a match "live". Then repeat over and over again for all the athletes I want to follow. I expect to be doing this for the senior worlds in a couple weeks. Anyways, it would be fantastic if the site could put up a blank "Senior Worlds" page, that contained minimal info needed to allow users to make their way thru complete brackets, without seeing any info that gives stuff away.

    2017 NCAA Championship Videos...

    I'm curious about this as well....is there anyplace to view past NCAA matches in full? Quite a few are on youtube, with some odd exceptions that maybe I'm just not seeing. For example, I'd like to re-watch Hall v Valencia 2017 and Hall v Jordan 2017, and Snyder v Cox 2015. Flo has quite a bit, but annoying highlight vids, not full matches. Surely it's possible to find the full (for example) Hall/Valencia semi match somewhere?
