this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Fact: I have 2 tickets for the Nebraska/M game November 19th.
Fact: I have been informed recently that my niece is getting married in Chicago at 11 am November 19th.
I need very creative excuses/ideas from my comrades. I need help big time! I REALLY want to be in the Big House when Nebraska arrives.
All you can eat grilled barbeque ribs/corn on the cob/salad/blueberry pie and beer at the Western/M game to the winner...
You might recall that last year about this time, I wrote a song for the season, lyrics to Don McLean's American Pie. I felt the creative urge this year and Ive hit the legal pad again. Last year we were coming off a horrible, messy offseason, and something uplifting with a deeper message felt right. This year, Hoke has been recruiting so well and we're getting so much press, I'm feeling the rockstar vibe.
To the tune of Walk this Way - Aerosmith:
Brand new sideline mayor, always pointin’ at the players
First webisode entitled, "The Team, the Team, the Team." There's some pretty good rapping included...
Flying my son in from Atlanta for ND weekend. We want to play golf on Friday. Our favorite course is Moose Ridge, but it's entirely booked for an outing on Friday, Sept 09 with no tee times the entire day. I need an alternative - MR guys suggested Northville Hills GC. Any other suggestions for courses in the area comparable to Moose Ridge in terms of price and golf challenge? Any comments +/- on Northville Hills?
There is a paywalled article that Steve Wiltfong put up that claims to know Jordan's mom's top school, which is Arkansas.
Has anyone heard any rumors about Walk-On Nathan Brink (Holland) giving BWC a run for his money? It might be Coach Mongomery trying to motivate BWC, and I can't imagine it he would get surpassed by a Walk-On, but I saw a brief clip of a quote by Coach M saying Brink was their "best technician". The rest was behind a pay-wall. I saw another post mentioning that coaches were very pleased with Brink, as well. This would be great to have a reliable back up and/or to keep BWC working hard.
