Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears: The **2021 /r/CFB Holiday Drive** ends tonight: * [Check it out here!](https://old.reddit.com/r/CFB/comments/rfg83h/2021_rcfb_holiday_drive_bricks_toys_childrens/) * [Donation Link.](https://donorbox.org/7th-annual-r-cfb-holiday-drive) *(FINAL DAY)*


DickySchmidt33

Well at least we're getting a $15 credit from YTTV.


ChemicalOle

What happened tonight is the reason I choose to still overpay for cable.


fredsdreads

Been cable free for 5 years. I'd never go back to being charged out the ass for cable or satellite. I pay $90 for internet ($30 of that is to get unlimited data cap) and use streaming tv. I stood up a fubo trial in 30 seconds after my youtube tv cut out. I'm also going to cancel my youtube tv membership. All of this without needing to return equipment, have installers/delivery to the house, etc. It's maybe slightly inconvenient at times, but it's also much cheaper. Equipment rental fees are a joke

fredsdreads

Cable price hikes is why I started using streaming services, but each their own. I think I should highlight the contract-free part of the streaming services. You can just join and cancel, hop between them as your needs change or as their services change


weeoohrescue

For now… but yeah, that’s a serious benefit


YouAreMadCuzBad

If Hawaii can play in D1 then NDSU can too. Excuses all you want but step up. It’s like the kid who refuses to raise the difficulty.


Dittzy

Bruh


Tajikistani

They would have to be heavily subsidized by the other members of whatever conference they joined unless a bunch of other nearby schools moved up with them


[deleted]

Hey everyone's been saying fuck ESPN and Dis-I'm sorry "The Mouse" (seriously one of the dumbest memes ever), Google, and everyone other large business entity forever on the internet, they finally listened and now we don't get to watch anything! Yay we won!


whynottrytrap

Fuck ESPN


[deleted]

The real enemy here is Hulu, who, if you have the + bundle, won't let you simply add Live TV if you want, lol.


Spartan917x

Okay can anyone recommend alternatives to YT TV and fubo holy fuck


CCTider

Pirating


bukithd

I really appreciated YouTube TV turning off the ESPN access with 2 minutes left in the game. Fuck Disney and fuck Google.


[deleted]

I really appreciate how little redditors understand business. They have a contract (insert Silicon Valley "we have a contract" scene here), and when both parties couldn't agree on renewal terms, the contract ran out at the time they had to cut the feed, which obviously would be the end of Friday. YTTV didn't go "yeah fuck these fucks, let's cut the ESPN stream early", if they didn't cut it, ESPN/Disney could have sued them for a shitton.


bukithd

Yeah no shit they have a contract that lapsed. The problem is that Disney is holding Google hostage on cost increases. Google is fighting back. And neither company actually gives a shit that the customers are the ones who lose in this scenario. It'd be like one day apple decided to have a contract disagreement with Verizon so all customers with iphones on Verizon suddenly lost the use of their phones. It's two mega corporations screwing over the consumer again. Disney wants you to buy Hulu plus and Google doesn't want to pay for the coverage. We're right back where we were when cable companies were still screwing us pre-cordcutting era. The problem should have never gotten to this point.


Dog_Brains_

Didn’t like the goal line calls. Running back was running down hill. Just try to punish your way into the end zone


YouAreMadCuzBad

How do you even stumble on that play before like that even old bones Brady wouldn’t lol.


sandrockcustom

Whoever thought to play "If You're Gonna Play in Texas" deserves a raise.


Khatib

They do it every time, for a lot of years now.


sandrockcustom

Oh wow, that rocks! I love that.


Perryapsis

It's a tradition at this point.


sandrockcustom

I didn't know that, that's really cool!


pylonsconstructed

I still can’t believe that interception though. Unreal skill, timing, clutch as hell.


Adequate_Bliss

Goddamnit. I couldn’t foresee that stupidity. Just what the hell? That’s so frustrating and frankly embarrassing. Wtf were those last 3 plays. This is why we lost 3 times in a row. That 17-13 championship game was so bad on our part. (NDSU beat us soundly 28-20). Andddd wtf happened last year letting that team come back?! But bi god this result was so maddening. Just like the last 5 years of playoffs


WinterZookeepergame3

They come with their necks ready to roll


Eglantine26

Would’ve enjoyed an underdog win (I know), but that was some good shit. What’s the deal with the Alabama song, though. That’s what they celebrate with in North Dakota?


the-magic-panda

“If you wanna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band” The championship is in Frisco, Texas


12_bagels

Maybe cuz NDSU is the Alabama of FCS? Idk I’m just spitballing. I’m not being sarcastic btw I’m genuinely just guessing.


Bobby-Samsonite

Its impressive, they have had 3 head coaches in the past 10 years and still kick butt in FCS/I-AA.


12_bagels

I just hope this one actually stays. No way we get lucky with another head coach if he leaves.


HZE2

Championship is in Texas, fits the theme heading back to play in Tx.


Eglantine26

That makes sense.


johnny119

I'm not the only one who thinks the announcer is saying Byzantine any team he tries to pronounce bison team


GeneralAcorn

Well I do believe that the locals are sticklers about it being pronounces Bizon, rather than Bison, so I can totally see that stretch.


BlenderTheBottle

Yeah you definitely pronounce it like a 'z' but the announcers put a lot more emphasis on it than we do.


blackulaa

What is this muzak?


amaizeingndn

Got that Fargo North Dakota rhythm


mruab

that ends JMU's run in FCS


fredsdreads

Would've been nice to win tonight but I'm hoping sunbelt conference games are easier to access than CAA games, I had to listen by radio how we lost to villanova


Jonschmiddy

kinda awkward


YouAreMadCuzBad

JMU can go FBS but NDSU can’t. Give me a break, time to step up.


Fun_Argument4102

Location is terrible for NDSU. Closest conference is the Big Ten and we all know that’s not happening


NielsensFourth

Rutgers is a fine university in a mighty big market, but if was up to me we kick them out and take NDSU instead. Since this clearly won't happen anytime soon, go win another championship for North Dakota!


Fun_Argument4102

I definitely would support this but I couldn’t take NDSU playing Iowa every year Edit: grammar


YouAreMadCuzBad

That’s bull Hawaii is more isolated then North Dakota but they’re D1. They’re just content not upping the difficulty.


jimboshrimp97

If the move is football only like Hawaii, then maybe. They'd risk losing their rivalries in an MVFC that has been seriously stepping up their game in terms of quality in exchange for being geographically isolated from a conference they have no stake in whatsoever. And for what? An annual Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl appearance?


Fun_Argument4102

As a student I can tell you that we are not content with the difficulty. Market size is another argument keeping us out. Also FCS is D1


CheeseMan0987

Bad take incoming: MW should take Montana, Montana St., North Dakota St., and South Dakota St.


GeneralAcorn

Actually though. Some day when Boise State and San Diego State get sniped by a P5 conference, I could see this happening.


12_bagels

NDSU is in North Dakota. JMU is in Virginia. Hell of a lot easier to play other FBS teams in Virginia than in North Dakota.


1943fighter

Yep the nearest G5 school is either Wyoming or Ball State neither is exactly the greatest fit


YouAreMadCuzBad

Hawaii is more isolated then ND, they can fly.


12_bagels

Hawaii gets tourism money (probably). NDSU doesn’t.


Gillkid615

Yeah jmu will be able to walk into pretty quick deals with Liberty, Virginia, and Tech most likely. NDSU would have to pray to get Wyoming and a couple Washington or Oregon teams that wouldn’t want the travel and challenge of playing @NDSU anyway


YouAreMadCuzBad

But Hawaii is more isolated and can get FBS teams to play them but ND can’t? Make them independent.


Gillkid615

I think Hawaii has a bit more appeal than North Dakota to be fair


12_bagels

That doesn’t even include the cost of traveling to other places. Like with the SEC the furthest you’d prolly go is like Kentucky to Florida or Texas A&M. NDSU would have to travel to like Kansas to play games.


YouAreMadCuzBad

Hawaii is more isolated, try harder with excuses. They should step up.


12_bagels

Sounds like you’re trying to impersonate your username. Cheers bud have a beer 🍻


Gillkid615

Yep no feasible conference to join. Not sure anyone would want them anyway


12_bagels

This other guy gotta be a JMU fan lmao. No way he’s this mad over a school he didn’t even play.


YouAreMadCuzBad

Hawaii is farther away they can make NDSU play games, they’ll be fine.


Staind075

What a game! Go Bison!!!


Mr_Boneman

Later Dukebros. Enjoy paying more to lose more at the next level.


weeoohrescue

I remember when Richmond used to be a rivalry. Faint memories, but they’re there


Mr_Boneman

>Faint memories Going to be saying that about winning games soon enough.


weeoohrescue

So we’ll just be like you now?


Mr_Boneman

Exactly. Only well pay far less (already did, hence not a rivalry). Nothing we have said is factually incorrect.


YouAreMadCuzBad

Boo!


12_bagels

LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


BikiniATroll

Does coach have a grill?


awnomnomnom

Braces


Logical_Albatross_19

Maybe next year jmu


M0326

Nope


ErickBachman

The next FCS game is must watch Go MontanA


Bobby-Samsonite

Montana State ?


Alex_butler

Coach is a hardoo with no voice lmao


OfficialHavik

Frisco South yet again


amaizeingndn

Nice song choice 😂


pylonsconstructed

Bison are pretty cool animals


WinterZookeepergame3

Hey that's our song


EmporerBevo

just up the road from frisco, may try to go to this game.


Khatib

If you're local and don't want to throw big money at tickets, there's usually a few scalpers selling their very last tickets for below face if you miss the first 5 minutes of the game. Tailgating with a Bison crowd there will be hopping, as will every bar in Frisco and Addison.


JoeDaleJr

PM me if you're serious - I got two on the 40 yd line


weeoohrescue

Maybe we’ll be able to send a scholarship or 3 to competent quarterbacks next year. Jesus.


BikiniATroll

Sometimes all you need is a really good 6th Man!


Tajikistani

My watch isn't accurately reflecting my heart rate right now lol, lucky to get out of here with the win tonight. Good game JMU, good luck at the next level


Wolverine2121

I know how you feel. My watch told me I burned 500 calories during the Michigan Ohio State game and I never left my chair once.


Gillkid615

I don’t think people understand how difficult it is going to be for jmu next year


JoeDaleJr

Oh, I do, much better than any of the idiiots on facebook or csnbbs. But FUCK man last chance to win a title and now it jumps a notch. Fuck...


Gillkid615

I have a sad feeling that it will be a decade of really rough football. I have some worries with Cignatti as well


JoeDaleJr

My honest take? We finish 8-4 next year in transition (Sunbelt is awful, no matter what you may hear). Bowl eligible '23 is 6-6, we play in Mobile (hit me up, I'll host) then it's downhill. I know the BOV backs Cig (but he plays not to lose. Mickey 2.0. This transition is not going to go well and when we aren't running train the mid-tier boosters who finally got their way are going to turn on the AD and coach


Bobby-Samsonite

when is the next FCS Semi final?


Alex_butler

Tomorrow early afternoon, I want to say 1 or 3pm ET


Bobby-Samsonite

oh dang I wanted the other FCS semi to be a night game.


Gillkid615

Tomorrow at 2


Mythrandir24

Tomorrow 2ET


Staind075

Tomorrow, Noon est I think


BenadrylBeer

Damn lmaoooooooo


TentakilRex

Life sucks, maybe the dispute will done in a few days


Wittyname0

Lol at the woman with the sneaky SDSU sweatshirt


Bobby-Samsonite

LOL haha I saw that


JammOrthodontics

Did... did the players just storm the stands?


PM_Me_Titties-n-Ass

It's tradition


cajunbander

I saw that. Ain’t it supposed to go the other way?


[deleted]

Not when the Pacers and Pistons play.


HZE2

Pretty big drop in the dome, has never really worked to storm from the stands.


nd3po

I’m sorry that happened that way JMU fans.


sssl3

This JMU QB is a literal statue.


ErickBachman

Dudes were coordinating how to hold a flag


JoeDaleJr

FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK gg Bison, let's do this again never. Good luck in Frisco


RUALUM15

Cole Johnson, what is u doing bb?


joeworlds

That was so bad lol


DeZeeuw2

Haha, they couldn't figure out how to hold up their flag


Zloggt

Oof…tough way to end it for JMU…


OfficialHavik

What an anticlimactic bummer of an ending.... That ain't it Cole.


HZE2

Wooooo!


RegionalBias

Thank you to the kind soul who posted the stream.


Jonschmiddy

pain


mruab

The Bison are returning to Frisco


boregon

This JMU QB is so bad it’s painful to watch


JJFlower98

BIZZZZZZON


Alex_butler

What a great game


Super_mando1130

Dude this QB is not an athlete


XAfricaSaltX

Cole Johnson looking like Luke Fickell with that clock management


arockbiter

What a game


nd3po

I said it before and I’ll say it again, Cole Johnson hates moving


RyanTheBruce

Can't do that... damn


johnny119

Oof not a great play there by the QB


greed_and_death

Johnson just cannot pass accurately whenever NDSU blitzes


MarcusAurelius121

Flip it OOB what the hell?


XAfricaSaltX

You played yourself


YouAreMadCuzBad

Hoodie guy make a great Td catch alright


Adequate_Bliss

I know…he should’ve just latex a leg down….that’s frustrating as hell


Adequate_Bliss

Laid* Not latex…although that would’ve been very interesting


Adequate_Bliss

Just so I can get ahead of this thing… JMU will score, but then miss the extra point. You heard it here first


Logical_Albatross_19

Not quite


ErickBachman

If you sell American flag apparel outside this building you’d be a millionaire tomorrow


EndoExo

Fully expecting this to end with shenanigans.


OfficialHavik

We got that great bowl game and now this game here

CMOn cole


Tejon_Melero

WTF am I paying for ESPN+ for if I'm getting blocked on their dumb app also? I only use it for football and maybe a fight card if I remember. Basically anything you could say about the Mouse would be a bannable offense.


Khatib

If the games get bumped to any espn cable channel, they aren't available with plus anymore. It's kinda bullshit.


echteleo31

it’s so dumb that we pay for ESPN+ subscriptions but it doesn’t allow us to use the regular ESPN channels - that should be included. so ridiculous


BikiniATroll

ESPN+ is different from the cable login


johnny119

This is basically the 21st century version of the Heidi game

YouAreMadCuzBad

PLEASE JMU LETS SEE SOME PARITY!


MarcusAurelius121

1st play had a false start, 2nd play had an offside, lol.


Crazyhawk28

6th man?


Alex_butler

Sir this is a basketball game on grass


Crazyhawk28

I've always stated that one bounce passes should count in football


JammOrthodontics

With YouTube TV gone, you can post anything in here and dozens or hundreds of users will think it's real! Let the record show that Dwight K. Schrute is now completely nude and is holding a plastic knife to Stanley's neck?!


BikiniATroll

FALSE. BLACK BEARS.


Opposite-Class1685

I see it too

This clock operator is gonna kill a second every single play on this drive, I guarantee it


yellowseven

Noted thing in football, the 6th man


Jonschmiddy

i don’t think we win this


echteleo31

Disney couldn’t have at least waited until after bowl season to pull this crap? Greedy assholes


chrobbin

Not gonna lie that’s probably a big reason why they are pushing it right now: dangle the CFP/NY6 to get Google to cave


echteleo31

fair point!


Bobby-Samsonite

Give Google/YouTube TV some blame too.


echteleo31

yeah fair, they deserve just as much


CaramelPhD

I'm honestly surprised by the number of fellow YouTube TV viewers. I doubt there will be any more highlight threads, but that was a major source for me with this sub. Lost every FBS game that aired on ESPN this season. Fun ride though!


YouAreMadCuzBad

From 2000 to 2010 season their were 8 different teams besides App State who won 3 in a row, who won championships. Since 2011-2021 NDSU has won 8 of the 10 played championships. I don’t honestly see how they shouldn’t make a jump for the FBS.


NielsensFourth

In terms of quality they definitely should. The trouble for teams like NDSU is that they're in the middle of nowhere and all of their closest rivals (UND, SD, SDSU) are also in the middle of nowhere. Minnesota is the only FBS team is a state bordering North Dakota. To get to Madison, for example, is a ten hour drive. Also, what conference is going to pick up a team in a market of 250,000 which is literally a thousand miles plus from all but a couple conference teams?


12_bagels

55 seconds at their own 35. No timeouts. JMU taking the snap.


bjt112233

Good thing that play clock started for us immediately after the punt return. Good to see the clock working…

WinterZookeepergame3

Glad they're not stealing our trademark I guess


Coach_Hoody_Wayes

So your 3 options for watching live sports these days A) pay for cable B) get fucked by the mouse c) just watch over the air stuff


Alex_butler

D) *illegal streams*


RegionalBias

100% what is going to happen. Fuck Disney, right in the ear. The Colleges need to realize what they did making a deal with the devil


Alex_butler

I’m serious, illegal streams always load faster than the ESPN app and work better quality on my wifi than using my parent’s tv provider to stream the games on the actual tv app


muricanmania

This is seriously true, when i moved to college i no longer had ready access to cable so I had to turn to other means, and it straight up works better than most ESPN stuff. And it has fun twitch chat.
