Mike Lantry, 1972
Burke headlines Wooden All-American team
Not really a bad post until the last sentence.
Can you read minds? Apparently not because Trey is currently deciding between Orange or Blue Gatorade in South Quad; not thinking about the tournament.
Oh, it appears he wants the Blue Gatorade. And now a bag of cheddar popcorn!
Also: he just felt the hole in his pocket of his Adidas track pants and felt the cool air from the air conditioner blow through his jacket. He just thought, "Man, Nike is so much better than Adidas. I hope Dave Brandon understands this fact."
Herm, it's 30 degrees outside right now. No one is running their air conditioner.
I live in Florida. It is 73 now and going to be 84 tomorrow. I wore short and a golf shirt today. I read the WSJ by the pool. Jealous?
PS - The damn public sector would run their air conditioner. How else are they going to justify raising tuition 5% a year?
I lived in Arizona for 5 years and then not too long ago, moved back to Ann Arbor partly because I found the heat obnoxious. So I'm one of the few people that actually is not jealous. And wouldn't the public sector say the reason they can't run the a/c when needed is because they need more money to do so and then still not run it once they get said money?
how is the wintergreen grizz down in Miami, Herm?
Expensive. Kayak it is. And now you can't buy it online...
"I do know what it means to become successful and what it takes to maintain a high level of success."
Did you take that directly from your cover letter? If so, I'm surprised you're still unemployed.
It appears to me as though you were the first internet tough guy as you misinterpreted my obviously jovial jab at your comment as a real threat and responded in kind. While I was attempting to give a sassy, possibly funny response to your comment, you were brooding and shaking with frustration at the thought of someone joshing you. Additionally, I was going to make fun of that Curtis Woodhouse guy... but he appears to be one of those guys who you just can't make fun of. Some sort of English soccer player, mobster, boxer combination. Quite the read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtis_Woodhouse
Ahhhh I can't let the Brits win the manliest-man award for the night: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chesty_Puller
He might. Only Siths deal in absolutes.
I find it interesting that the Wooden Award draws much less attention than the Heisman. Granted, college football is an absolute media monster (even compared to college basketball), so that factor must be taken into account. But, in a sport where one key player can make a massive difference (granted, football has QBs and the occasional RB who can really drive a team) it is bizarre that there isn't more hype. Perhaps the longer history of the Heisman has something to do with it or maybe it just appears skewed because of the dominance of football. Any thoughts?
Congrats to Trey as well and Go Blue.
Maybe it has to do with the fact that there are two awards for basically the same thing: the Naismith award and the Wooden award. Maybe they compete with each other?
Just a guess.
Or maybe it's the fact that college football really has THREE major player of the year awards instead of two (Walter Camp, Heisman, and Maxwell).
MOAR is better?
Football has the Maxwell award as well, though...although it is much less prestigious. Is one of the Wooden or Naismith awards considered less/more prestigious. It seems as though I've heard of the Wooden more but I'm not certain.
The NY athletic club that wards the Heisman has done a much much better job at promoting the events, schmoozing the media, having rich members, etc?
More of a distraction if he doesn't win it
has no business being on that list. He regressed this year.
Wooden must have a thing for tall white guys.
I would have to think that, given the numerous honors that Try Burke has gotten over the last three weeks alone, that it would be far more shocking if he did not win the Wooden Award after being named to the Wooden All-American Team. Looking back, he has been named to the All-American 1st team for The Sporting News and the Associated Press, as well as 1st team by the US Basketball Writers' Association and the National Association Of Basketball Coaches. He's also the Big Ten Player Of The Year, and I believe he was the USBWA District 5 Player Of The Year and on the NABC 1st team as well. It's hard for me to imagine a scenario where his name is not announced on Saturday.
