    So much for all the fuss about the preseason rankings. Can we even make it to the NCAA's post season?

    Getting factual may be spitting hairs but the article you reference reinforces my point. if you measure the percentage of an age group who does not buy a product, then Millenials are the largest "cordless" demographic group. If you measure the group who has purchased the product in the past and no longer buys the product (ie cord cutting) then the Boomers are the largest demographic group. Millenials avoid many purchase decisions that the preseding generations made regularly. Home purchases, first class seating on airplanes, etc. That doesnt make the Millenials inferior but just more frugal than their parents generation.

    The Daugherty/Williams/Nance/Price/Ehlo Cavs is the best team to ever play basketball in Summit County.

This is probably not relevant to your discussion because you guys already have your positions staked out but your data is not correct. Baby Boomers are the largest consumer grouping that has removed cable/satellite service. This trend has been in effect for over 20 years. They represent the highest penetration of cable users and so they would naturally have the highest defection rate. For the most part Millennials never bought the cable/satellite services in high numbers so they are not the "largest group of cord cutters" . A more accurate description would be the largest generational group to have never purchased cable/satellite service.

    Disney-Fox merger approved but they must spin off Fox Sports Ohio and Sports Time Ohio. ESPN will not get access to additional programming assets in NE Ohio. https://bit.ly/2MsTnTs

    My wife and I were at the Diamond Head classic in 2013. We did not go last year. Your right I love to travel to the holiday tournaments.

    Great location. Good competition. No hurricane damage here. Who is going down to support the ZIps?

    Z.I.P. said " I can imagine they're feeling homesick by now. " is not possible. They have never moved from their Ohio home.

    Looks like we have wrapped it up for this chaotic post season. https://bit.ly/2GdXNKs I have not seen any news on where some of last years departing players have landed. Anyone have any updates I missed?

    Please define "stabilize" as it relates to today's D1 Men's basketball environment. Thanks in advance for your response.

    Black press will make more money selling the city block on which the BJ sits than selling the staff and circulation to Gatehouse. It is the true value proposition to Black Press. Developers will bid aggressively to get that full block downtown. Even the City of Akron is selling off their downtown real estate while the market is hot ......https://bit.ly/2qvaZor UA should put the Quaker Square property on the market right now. The best chance for dumping this drain on university resources. It cost more to keep it open than the revenue it can bring to UA.

Site restoration is expected to be completed in May as well.

    I have seen nothing that says ESPN3 (paid for by the cable companies) will disappear. Some programming may appear on both venues. Initial press release by Disney is confusing to me.
