WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THE SPARTANS WILL WIN THE WAC?

IF YOU ASKED EVEN THE MOST DIE-HARD FAN TWO MONTHS AGO THEY WOULD HAVE CALLED YOU CRAZY TOO!

BUT AS HOWARD COWAN REPORTS WITH S-J-S-U AT TWO AND ONE IN CONFERENCE THE MEN OF SPARTA ARE BUILDING THEIR WAY THERE.

>>>

AS FANS RUSHED THE FIELD TO CELEBRATE WITH PLAYERS AND COACHES YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE SPARTANS BEAT A TOP 10 TEAM.

BUT THE WIN AGAINST HAWAII GAVE THE SPARTANS THREE WINS…FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2008…DESPITE FIVE STRAIGHT SECOND HALF TURNOVERS.

Mike MacIntyre: “If you could have told me after last year playing Hawaii that we could beat Hawaii ugly I would have told you, your crazy.”

QUARTERBACK MATT FAULKNER… WHO ENGINEERED THE FINAL DRIVE CREDITS THE TEAM AND THEIR ABILITY TO OVERCOME THE MISTAKES.

Matt Faulkner: “You don’t want to win a game with six turnovers, but If you can win a game and have six turnovers its says alot about your team. And how they know how to fight back and how they never give up”

TURNOVERS ASIDE THE SPARTANS CAME TO PLAY MAKING THE MOST OF HAWAII’S LATE GAME MISTAKES…INCLUDING TWO BLOCKED KICKS BY TRAVIS JOHNSON.

Travis Johnson: “It just shows to everyone else that San Jose State is not the old San Jose State, were a whole new team, a whole new program and were coming.”

EVEN WITH THE TEAM DOWN…FACING 87 YARDS TO WIN THE GAME THERE WAS NO QUIT IN THE SPARTANS.

Chandler Jones: “Coach Mac basically embedded in us to never give up never lose fight and just playing no matter what and even when we were down he just had us keep fighting.”” »

Mike MacIntyre “We never hung our heads and never did we think we were going to lose and I think that is the biggest hurdle, those young men have their heart and mind in the right place.” »

Howard Cowan: “After their roller coast win at home against Hawaii last week, the Spartans have their bye. The week off will allow injured players to heal up before heading on the road to Louisiana Tech next Saturday. At Spartan Stadium, Howard Cowan Update News. “

NETFLIX…A FEW MONTHS AGO IT WAS ALL THE RAGE.

WHETHER IT WAS WATCHING AN OLD CLASSIC ON DVD OR STREAMING TV SHOWS ONLINE.

BUT AS HOWARD COWAN REPORTS ONE SMALL CHANGE HAS CAUSED BIG PROBLEMS FOR THE MAIL-MOVIE GIANT…NATIONWIDE.

>>>

GETTING DVD’S IN THE MAIL TO MANY AMERICANS IS JUST AS COMMON AS THAT DREADED BILL.

BUT WHEN NETFLIX SAID THEY WERE RASING FEES FOR BOTH STEAMING AND DVD RENTALS…EIGHT-HUNDRED THOUSAND ANGRY CUSTOMERS SAID THIS WAS TOO MUCH.

Chase Daugherty: “This was really really extreme to the point where I was like wow I am paying way too much just for what I originally intended for.”

JUNIOR PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR CHASE DAUGHTREY SAYS HE CUT BACK TO JUST ONLINE STREAMING…AFTER NETFLIX RAISED THEIR PRICE FROM TEN TO 16 DOLLARS A MONTH.

INSTEAD OF GETTING DVD’S FROM NETFLIX,…DAUGHERTY NOW STREAMS MOVIES TO HIS TELEVISION…AND RENTS AT A LOCAL CONVENIENCE STORE.

Howard Cowan: “So how does a company who seemed to have their product in every mail box in America see their stock fall by 70 percent in just three months.”

IN A STATEMENT NETFLIX SAYS IT DOES NOT COMMENT ON STOCK MOVEMENT OR ANALYST REPORTS.

Peter Young: “They got greedy, the bottom line is they got greedy.”

NEW MEDIA PROFESSOR PETER YOUNG SAYS THE LOS GATOS BASED COMPANY COULD HAVE INCREASED PRICES AND SILL KEPT INVESTORS AND CUSTOMERS HAPPY.

Peter Young: “Netflix should have incrementally raised their rates and they still would have captured a significant amount of people.”

NETFLIX DID ORIGNIALLY MOVE DVD RENTALS TO QUICKSTER LAST MONTH ONLY TO REVERSE THIS DESCION TWO WEEKS LATER.

SO FOR NOW ITS UNCLEAR WHAT THE FUTURE WILL BRING THE ONLINE MOVIE COMPANY.
