True, bro.  And I don't know how to make the adjustment on the IPad which I use for the bball feed cabled to the big screen.  Which still might not be an adequate fix cause the picture quality is poor.

OK, guys. Just went back to replay for third time (desk-top) and when I again adjusted the quality from auto to 270p it held. While the picture quality is poor the sound is audible. I'm gonna give it a another try.


I still say you will be drunk by 5:30


Not if you're doing the buying Rolling Eyes....BTW this is your first contribution to the recruiting thread. Very weak....

From my experience today and trying to catch a few games online this year, it looks like a bandwidth and/or Internet speed issue (pardon my terminology if I'm not using it right...) on their end.

Not a good excuse for not fixing an ongoing problem, but I don't think it's as simple as a Sports Info staffer hitting the wrong button or plugging in the wrong cord. Somebody with the power (and budget) to do so needs to boost the Internet capabilities around campus to support these broadcasts.

The feed is set up for mobile devices, I guess. Maybe desktop/laptop browsers aren't caching it properly. Whatever it is, the LC production people had better look into it and provide instructions to the rest of us about how to view the material and how to set browsers, etc. It makes no sense to do this unless they can do it (reasonably) well.

Heh - I just did the same. You're right, it went from bad to worse. Confused

Now after adjusting my desktop to 240p, I can actually hear (forget about seeing the videos clearly however).

Coach Nudelberg, after describing the "spectacular" effort by the new staff to add 7 guys in 2 "incredible recruiting weekends," (great job!) said with a grin:

"...hoping for a couple more and a couple things to happen as we progress here going on..."  Interesting!

Also Gary said:

"...so with 17 already committed, we know there will probably be a couple more..."   Presumably JJ and Lavandis.

The signing day broadcast is here, broken down into separate videos for each player:

This is the quality I assume we were supposed to get in the first place. You can even beef up the quality to HD 60fps.

What a mess of a feed. So frustrating. Not indicative of the quality of our beloved school.  How do we make this better?  So much work goes in to this with great on air talent and it's not watchable.  I could only watch for 5 minutes (replay)  In the corporate world, this would be addressed quickly yet our awful streams continue.

FYI, the problems with the streams were acknowledged at least twice during PLN broadcast of WBB game tonight. Once by Gary and then again by Mike Joseph at halftime. They are aware and working to figure out the problem.
We have great broadcast team, good camera crews but the product stinks because of choppy stream. Kind of like we have great facilities but the teams still stink. We can't get out of our own way.

Beating a dead horse to death, I know, but men's game AT Army, Ipad, adapter, cable to TV, absolutely no problem. Such a pleasure compared to our home game streams.

Very sorry for the players and parents. But as bogie posted, the interview is now available broken down by player, video and audio. Yeah!!!

Maybe a new thread tomorrow to actually discuss the signings. Today was just too frustrating.

Would have been better off not broadcasting anything vs. that.

After years of doing it right and being really proud of the production that was unmitigated crap. An understatement to say not the way to welcome in a new coaching staff or new enrollees. If I were JC, Dennis, Mick et al, I'd would be both furious and embarrassed. Same goes for Bruce and Alison.

That deserves a huge apology to every kid, coach and fan who supports LC. And in world outside academia someone would be looking for a new gig by this afternoon.

And yeah, a ton of missing names vs. what we had expected.


No need to apologize to the kids there now. They understand the landscape. They see the total lack of commitment from the college. It's a shame really. Great school, good infrastructure, great alumni group both in financial support and attendance. It's been a long time since I have seen something so good yet so undervalued. I think the new coach will help but he can't do it by himself.

Some of you won't like this comment but I'm still not sure the college leadership is committed to Scholarship sports. Look at all the facilities. Alumni built those. Think where we would be in athletics without about five families.

That's true for most of the College, not just athletics. The difference is, athletics has a bizarre us versus the College attitude.

I do understand your comment and I am trying to be understanding of the outright vitriol regarding the stream, but you're right Fly I don't like it.

The college has finally made a move with the staff to make the team better. The college has finally acknowledged our shortcomings on the field and are taking steps to correct or at least uncover the issues.

We have all seen years of lackluster support and we have all been very frustrated. But this is hilarious to me. For years we have been saying that we have the best media product in the PL and possibly FCS. We have great talent, amazing coverage, and ESPN level production value evidenced by our regular selection to appear on ESPN3 and several comments made by ESPN3 producers. Then there is a bad stream on an off-season event and you all want to pull the plug, take away your donations, fire the AD and President for making a mockery of our great school. The talent was still there, the commitment to the event was still there. There was a technical glitch.

Is it a shame? Should they have fixed the issue before the end of the broadcast? Yes.

Did they acknowledge the streaming difficulties and apologize? Is this a rare occurrence and not indicative of the overall product? Also yes.

How about we focus on the new staff, the new players, and the new direction of the program while the department at least appears to want to make a direction change itself.

This was not a one time glitch and has occurred at least all winter and at times during the fall. There has been plenty of time to fix it but it is only getting worse. Several people have called and there seems to be no urgency to get it fixed.

Have you watched a home MBB or WBB game lately?  This is NOT a rare occurrence and this board has been filled with threads noting the difference between watching a home basketball game vs. a road one for several weeks now.

I was encouraged that the LSN team referenced it twice during the WBB game, which by the way was started and then stopped early in the second quarter.

I got some message that said "this event has been ended by the host".  I was able to resume the stream by reselecting it, but there are obviously problems going on.

The feed is choppy and jumps around with all kinds of buffering, the audio levels are all over the map (100 decibels for commercials and Joseph, 50 decibels for Gary and 25 for John), the audio speeds sometimes get wonky causing the talent to sound like they are on amphetamines. None of this occurs on road broadcasts.
