Mal Brown Scrimmage 2017

Exclusive full game replay of the Mal Brown Scrimmage. Just want to note that I am a fan first and an awful cameraman second, so you'll have to forgive the few plays I almost missed by being lost in the moment. Otherwise its a decent glimpse at the 17-18 Friars, as well as a first look at some of the new guys.

Friar Keychains

Recently I've made some Friar logo keychains during some downtime at work. Quite a few people asked where they could buy them so I figured I'd put a few of them on Etsy. All profits after material and machine time costs will go to the Friar Forever Athletic Fund. They are made of non-magnetic stainless steel, so they won't ever rust or decay. They can be purchased at https://www.etsy.com/shop/FTVWireShop?ref=l2-shop-header-avatar

FriarTV Update 10.08.17

So I think I'm gonna be streaming the games on YouTube this season. The biggest reason is that a majority of people just aren't using full-fledged computers anymore, and Flash is next to impossible to get working properly on a phone/tablet. So in keeping with one of  the stated goals of this site, to have as many people as possible watching the Friars worldwide, it's time for an upgrade. In addition to YT being mobile friendly, YouTube can handle the traffic, whereas the shady Flash sites may not be able to when 100 other games are being hosted at the same time. So if you have the bandwidth, you can watch the streams in 1080p. If you don't have a good signal, you can still watch by turning the quality down to 240p. Combine that with the absence of security concerns that come with shady Flash sites, the ability to scrub back and watch a replay on live streams, the option to chat with other Friar fans during the game, and the fact that YouTube's copyright algorithm just isn't where it needs to be to stop live feeds, it really is a no-brainer to make the switch in 2017.

 I will be streaming on an alternate account so I don't lose all the games I have uploaded over the years, juuust in case the channel does get flagged and taken down. And if it does get taken down, I can always just set up a Flash stream in a minute or two, so you'll be covered either way.

 Keep an eye out on Twitter for test streams, and be sure to turn up the quality as high as your bandwidth can handle!
