Looks like Desmond is trying to get things straightened out to enroll next month. I have a family member that teaches at HWO, and RichRod was at the school for a while today.
as a former member of the OK Red i am so happy Desmond will be able to cheer "Let's Go Blue" and not "Let's Go WOH" - that thing was the bane of my existence.
For sure, West Ottawa also has some the most annoying fans in the Red to go with the bad chants. Another OK Red alum here
I think everyone hates Rockford most.
Hey hey, kiss my ass. GO RAMS!
Having attended West Ottawa I can say our worst/best chant was probably "Black and White fight fight!"
Teenagers promoting a race war?
I went to WO, and i hated the let's go WO chant's..
Although the only sport i played was baseball when we were actually good and won the state title. we had to hear that stupid cheer enough
I'm a current member of the OK red conference and one who played against Desmond. I must say he is a beast. At QB was near impossible to bring down and made the biggest impact without even playing his natural position. And I must say I hate Rockford(our OSU IMO) and Jenison(cross town rivals) far worse. I'd have to guess you're from GH then?
Another former OK Red'r here. Don't remember much about WO specifically, though when I was in school (graduated in '01) I want to say they were pretty bad. My alma mater (Shores), Holland, and WO were generally the bottom-feeders of the conference in football.
Some things change (WO is good now), some things don't (Shores is still bad).
Welcome to heaven ( Ann arbor) and hell (camp barwis). Winter camp barwis is like the training music montage of rocky 4 except without the creature comforts.
Running in the snow with Hearts on Fire in the background. I confidently admit to owning that song.
I confidently admit to listening to that song while running on the treadmill today.
/not even kidding
√ Get into Michigan
√ Bang out some miles on the treadmill whilst listening to John Cafferty's "Hearts on Fire"
In my own humble opinion, you've won the blog.
Why is this something either of you have to precede the fact that you love Hearts on Fire with "I confidently". It should be, "You're god damn right I listen to that song, because the Rocky IV soundtrack is one of the finest in cinematic history!"
Do you think our slot ninjas train by sanding Mr Miyagi's porch or catching flies with chopsticks? Is that Dileo...
Without the mountains too, as well as, the mountaintop summit at sunset to yell, "DRAGO!"
more like when Sgt Hulka is making Bill Murray do push ups in the rain in "Stripes"
RR really tall or is Morgan short?
They don't call him Rich "The Tower" Rodriguez for nothin..
The pic reveals a special power of Desmond's - X-Ray vision. This will suit him well @ linebacker. =)
He has a pretty impressive GPA, hopefully he can become an EE.
a defensive player is enrolling early.GO BLUE!!!
What the fuck is HWO?
We are not, "Holland West Ottawa."
We are just, West Ottawa. Newspapers are full of shit, and I don't know how many years they've gotten our name wrong. They ought to feel embarrassed. SHAME!
Might be one of those name change things...
ya it was a joke, when we were announced in baseball playoffs back in 03, they had to put Holland- West ottawa, like there was some other WO program out there.. it was pretty stupid
Thats because you guys weren't any good, so nobody knew where West Ottawa was from. Just playing, that was a good team. But really they do this with a lot of teams that it does not really make sense to do it for.
Who cares. Go Dutch.
This picture warms my heart, really it does.
RR didn't even bother to wear a tie?!?! Where are the family values?!?!?!
/s.... i'm kinda afraid i actually needed to put this..
Why is Bristol Palin there and what is she singing to RR?
Sure as hell didnt dance her way there.
Yeah, you're probably right.
If Desmond is an EE will that count against last year and open another slot for 2011?
Maybe it's because I'm an engineering nerd but everytime I see EE, I think Electrical Engineer.
Someone above was like "Maybe he'll become and EE" and I was like "Why in God's name would you want a football player to have no time for anything else in the world??"
Wayne Lyons wants to. Robots + football = Mich.
Easy there, typical Rockford haters because we dominate everyone....
Next September! Well...probably not. should be a great game though.
Exactly, easy to hate on someone when you lose to them.
Desmond and welcome to the Blue Nation
Enrolling early is good, but hopefully linebacker=redshirt, right? Hopefully it will give him an extra 9 months of Barwis so he can play in 2012.
is a profound respect for his soon to be coach and i can only imagine that he is muttering through the smile get me on campus so i can learn how to smash bodies Big Ten style!
Go Blue beat miss st!
