Wolverine Wednesday: More Sneaker News and Dantonio Makes A Statement

Let's first get to the light hearted news with the next public release of the next Michigan Jordan Sneakers:





These will release on 3/7 at a cost of $160.   These are Air Jordan Low's 31's. or XXXI.

  • MSU's athletic department is on fire and the football program is one of the programs that continues to throw logs on that fire.  Head coach  Mark Dantonio finally made a statement on the situation.   The latest if you missed it, was that LB Jon Reschke is taking a graduate transfer for his final year.  Reschke was considered to be one of the Spartan's best players on defense and the rumor mill is saying he was thrown off the team after making some racial slurs.

  • This is a bit of a side note, but I know many of us are considering "cutting the cord" on our cable bill.  The big question is how do I watch sports and Michigan Football?  Many Michigan fans consider the best solution if your using Roku or another device is a subscription to Sony's PlayStation Streaming Service called Vue.  It includes BTN and ESPN.   (you don't need a PlayStation to use the Vue service).   YouTube will now have a new streaming service in a few months that will include all the over the air stations (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) and will include ESPN and BTN.  Which could be a good option as well.   I believe Vue is about $40 a month, YouTube will be priced for about $35.

Thanks for info regarding cutting the cable cord. If I would switch to Vue or YouTube what would be the best way to record a game and watch later? Would that still be possible? Thanks

Probably a dumb question....but do you have to have a smart TV to make Vue work? I assume just the internet and a smart TV and you'd be all set. I pay $140 a month just for cable....

check out KODI. you can get a box on Amazon for about $100. As long as you have good internet and an HDMI connection on your TV.... you can get just about anything that is out there, sports, broadcast networks, movies (including movies that are still in the theater) Quality of stream varies, but its never terrible.

Jon, no you can purchase a Roku stick for like $50 or $60 bucks. It will pick up you wifi and provide you online services that are subscription based.
