    Sheoherd Rams coming to PSAC, looking for pointers on watching upcoming games. Is there a central place to watch games or is it based on each school to broadcast?

    Bigger the game ... worse the feed.

    It seems like that sometimes, Probably 2/3 of the teams have decent feeds though, Some like IUP, Cal SRU, Kutz, Seton Hill and Ship are really good - if you ignore the student announcers. A few, Gannon in particular, seem like some guy, with an old camera, that moves it to follow the action after each play -less if its cold.

    Gannon's basketball feed is liking watching The Blair Witch. Awful.

    Bottom line: The PSAC website has a composite schedule for each sport. On there, they keep up with video links very well for each game. I'd say it's one of the best things they do.

    And it will be a rare football or basketball game that isn't streamed.

    ... except over the 7-week XMAS break. The majority of schools don't broadcast the games during that eternity of a break.

    Well, the video's finally working for me for a good PSAC East matchup this morning, Millersville-Bloomsburg. Eli Nabholz vs. Ashton Raines; won't be many runs here. 0-0 after inning and a half.

    Was that the guy who wiped the lens of the camera off, albeit infrequently?

    I think the best part of our streams are the announcers. They aren't students. I don't know if they're local radio guys or what. But I like them. I think SRU does a really good job all around with our football broadcasts.

    I'm going to stick up for the IUP student announcers. Yes, there are times when they don't seem to know what they are talking about and that can be frustrating for a listener; however, I think it's a great experience for them so I would rather have it that way. IUP has a great journalism and communications media (is that what they call it now?) school. After all, it is a university-sponsored webcast so I accept it. I think it's a good thing. Although it can be maddening at times.

    Without knowing your situation (where you live, your work sked, etc.) my advice: go to some of the games. Living outside Philly, I can't get back to SRU as much as I would like. But I think going to road games is a lot of fun. In recent years, we've been to West Chester, Shippensburg, Kutztown and Shepherd (have only won once in those games (don't get me started on the KU and Ship losses), but it's still fun). Hopefully you can get to some games this year and enjoy the PSAC. Good luck in your first year as a member!

    Still really nice opportunity for STUDENTS to get a running start on a potentially very satisfying career. Several meteorology majors at CAL U have added media course work to line up some nice forecaster gigs.

    True, but too many of them think they now have a soapbox and they go off on the refs and the coaches for no reason other than they now have a microphone. The ones who take the job seriously do pretty well

    Obvious lack of adult mentorship with the broadcasts. Not so much for editorial purposes but to review the broadcast with them, point out areas for improvement, etc. Its like kids doing ham radio in the 70s.

    I agree and it’s really fun to listen to when they have really strong yinzer accents.

    I think only twice since my junior year has the crew both been from western PA. Last year was a western PA crew. Prior to that it was a couple year run of kids from the east side of Harrisburg.

    I’ve caught a lot of “wooter” coming through the speakers.

    I have to agree with you Fightingscot. By the end of the season the same young announcers are still making the same errors. VERY difficult to listen to, even though it is a good start for them. They need some mentorship.
