|11 weeks 6 days ago||As a long-time HL watcher,||
As a long-time HL watcher, Donlon's teams quite simply gave people fits, both the people who had to play them and the people who had to watch. Despite a relative lack of talent, they were never any fun to play against (and not much fun to watch either); case in point being this year when Valpo mowed down the league and still lost to WSU twice. (VU looked/did better against Oregon.) If you liked watching 59-54 games, then you would have had fun, I guess.
The knock on Donlon is that he can't recruit. He got good players for his system, and development was also good, but there was never really anyone on his roster that you wish you'd had on your own. (Then there was the whole Tavares Sledge situation, but I blame the AD more for that.)
Which is really to say that he should be better in his current job than in his former. Good person, entertaining coach.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||despite my upvote,||
While I agree with your post in general, there is no doubt that the HL has taken a hit in recent years, from where it was.
It's gone from a league Valpo was ecstatic to join to a league they've outgrown--and it's less because of Valpo's success than because of the deterioration of the rest of the league as a whole. Obviously Butler leaving is a big part of that, but it's gone from a 2-bid league to a 1 (despite the fact they deserved to be a 2-bid this year, but that's another post that would become a negbang around here).

I wouldn’t listen to him sometimes, but then I’d think about it and do it … and I’d get so much better. And he’d be like, ‘I told you.’ ”

Obviously we know how that came out.
But speaking of "came out", it was a SHE that came out! So the good news is we named her Susannah (and call her "Zuzu" for short).
The bad news is my wife wants DOUBLE or NOTHING on the boy, whenever he comes...either NICHOLAS BEAR or ... well, nothing, which as any guy on here can tell you is something else she wanted anyway :)

|3 years 10 weeks ago||I appreciate the revisionist||
I appreciate the revisionist history as much as anyone--definitely more than anyone on this blog, anyway--but we did not upset Louisville last year.
We almost did--losing 6-4, and then almost beat Kentucky, losing 5-4.
We did graduate a lot of people last year, so this was expected to be rebuilding with a lot of freshmen, but we had more success than expected.
Look out also for Joylyn Ichiyama, our third baseman and spiritual leader / den mother. ESPN will likely find her cute darling son in the stands again, especially if she starts slugging :)

Thanks for writing, esp. if you're having to repeat something you wrote elsewhere and I missed.
This makes me a sad panda, though. :(
I think GR IV is going to do some wonderful things for someone. Just wish it were us.

Sorry, the name Too Short is already taken.
But you would have been perfect for MSU!

I just wanted to tell you guys that Adoree Jackson is originally from another galaxy, or possibly Illinois, and grew up wanting to save the galaxy or possibly play basketball for Bill Self.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Oh great.||
Well, we were in the same pod last year, and then ended up not having to play, which made my life easier.
Can't dodge it again! :/

Don't get me wrong, I'm still excited, but I suppose this also means my dream of seeing Gelen Robinson in maize and blue is dead?

It's pretty obvious, but then I thought giving student-athletes some remuneration was obvious too.

I'm certainly not saying that they should!
But aren't you bothered by the semi-blackmail of "if you just change your mind, we can make that ALL disappear for you"? Their making an allusion to an angry Purdue alumni base not helping him out for the rest of his life simply because he didn't spend a fifth year there?
Just say, "fine, pay your own way." But don't be all, "if you come back, i won't post these pics on the internet".

That's true about Buscher, although since I'm from Valpo I don't care about Chesterton as much as you do ;)
(And maybe my post was too long, but at the end I did cite [and spell correctly :)] E'Twaun Moore, though I forgot to add Angel Garcia and Kawann Short after the "and")
Add Hayden Humes, a rising senior at UIC at the moment. Plus all the kids from Bowman, though none have done a whole lot yet, there are a half-dozen playing DI.

...but Michigan is very interested in Conner TenHove, a 2016 from Valparaiso High School. 6'5" already, and played JV as a freshman, which neither Scott Martin nor Rob Hummel (class of 2007) did.

Not any more...although based on the few posts I make I can see how anyone would think so.
I miss it (so much so that my cell is still 219 years later) but like a lot of people found I could make a lot more money elsewhere.
...kind of like Novak, now that I mention it :)

I know, right? If their sons had been recruited by, say, Brian Ellerbe, then of course they wouldn't know the song. But this team has earned a lot of repeat plays.
Pity iTunes doesn't follow you through life and keep track of your personal "play count" for things like this. :)
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Thank you very much.||
I don't even want to admit how many other episodes of Mad Men it took me to try to test embedding as a comment when I failed in the OP, but the total may or may not have been equal to the number of META posts I looked up, read, and tried to follow on this board re: embedding.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||i know that's what i said too.||
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Good point||
|3 years 16 weeks ago||beg to differ...||
"as if anyone gets incensed about teams that are one line off of expectations"
um...i know a whole bunch of mid-major boards that would and probably do (e.g. for sure we did over Valpo getting a 14 behind crap teams like Montana instead of the 13 they deserved), and at that end of the spectrum, it's totally justified because one line off of expectations is an exponential difference in terms of historical winning percentage:
...so yeah, we do get exercised about that one line, for obvious reasons.

Not saying it'll happen, but thought experiment.
Think how much you detest Nick Saban.
Try to detest him a little bit more.
