Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Today is the birthday of our glorious Space Emperor Zoltan Mesko!
On a serious note, one of the true student athletes on the team, and a great guy, I wish him the best of luck in whatever he chooses to do, whether it be downing kicks inside the 5 yard line or saving Wall Street.
Cheers to the future Ray Guy Award Winner.
It gets extremely tiresome to see the blue on blue hate going on in here. Gentlemen, this is your refuge, where you know there are other "super fans"(looks at Turbo Cool) and alum of the school that you love, who feel the same way about said school. JUST LIKE YOU!
Now I know it is a lot of testosterone floating around here and I understand and appreciate a good pissing match. But I prefer to write my name in the snow of the opposition and by opposition I mean the guys wearing the different color uniforms, say like, da bucknuts (which would be scarlet and gray) and our little brother jan brady syndrome sparties.(green and white) And lest I forget, dat damn school in Indiana who's leader, last I heard, ate their schools colors.
Now please can we stop the Maize and Blue on Maize and Blue hate? And remember next time you get the urge to have a pissing match the border to Ohio is a deliberate turn south. Aim in that direction. That way when you are done pissing at least your marking new territory.
I originally wrote this post as a sign of solidarity with His Dudeness who was calling for a truce to all the bickering that has been going on here lately. I posted it on its own seperate thread as to further this endeavour and solicit a cease fire. It seems to a couple of factions forming on the board that are starting to take over threads having wars with one another. Am just asking that we chill out on all the blue on blue cyber crime and focus our energy against the true enemies of the state.
It is official now. At least rivals is reporting that Quinton is going to be in Maize and Blue next year. His coach gave the official word to the site. So, one down fellas.
Rivals has released their updated Florida Top 100 and the news is pretty good - we've got five kids from that list, all in the top 73 (I believe Hawthorne is 73rd). Both Vincent Smith and Hawthorne make jumps into the Top 100 after neither were ranked in the pre-season top 100. Joining them are Gallon, Vlad and Mike Jones.
That's great to see that our efforts in Florida are not going unnoticed. They even mention in the article that Michigan has the most amount of commits from Florida outside of the Florida schools.
Hopefully next year will be even more bountiful. We've got a good start.
Here is an interview with our new DC. He talks about his philosphy, where he likes to coach, how he got the job.
An interesting interview.
