"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

I remember the depths of that coaching search when Jim Grobe was starting to look appealing. Those were some dark days.
|34 weeks 4 hours ago||5 years and 2 weeks over||
5 years and 2 weeks over here! I don't post much, but I'm on the site every single day and I don't know what I would do at work without it!

It's about time! I remember thinking that it was a great idea. Turns out, I was right!

What happens if another coach had that put into his contract? Never ending dollar raises?
|3 years 17 weeks ago||So am I right in assuming||
So am I right in assuming that most people want the tradition of the #1 jersey to die? Or are most of you just upset with the way it is being handled as of late? I personally love it, and it never seemed to be a problem as far as promoting one player over any other before. I remember when Manningham was blowing up and everybody was calling for him to get the jersey.
Is the change in opinion based off of the new coaching staff and their perceived emphasis on team over player? People keep talking about Bo and the whole "team" approach, but didn't he start the helmet stickers that Carr thought were too individualistic?

Am I the only person that thinks that some variation of this should be the US Soccer logo? It would be ten times better than the lame shield we have now.

Great to end the game with a bang and put the other guys away.

Eric Bledsoe much he needed a transfusion?

As a yooper, when I'm calling something "up north", I'm usually referring to Houghton.

I'm with you. I'd sneak up after that dude wanted to order with Denise and I would comfort Ms. Redhead.

Although I agree with your post, I kind of upvoted you for your signature. I say "Au revoir, Shoshanna!" way too often in daily activities.

I'm glad I'm not the only person that eats middle fingers. I get kind of sick from them too.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||I honestly thought that they||
I honestly thought that they were being invited to the FIBA championships based on the title of the thread. I thought it sounded like a cool idea, but alas, it was not to be.

The interception touchdown for me. The big house was so dead that day, and from that play forward it was crazy.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||I agree. While it isn't very||
I agree. While it isn't very probable, Fitzgerald is the player that I am most excited to see this year. If his scenario comes true, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

I guess you could say they were HANDED the spot.

I was worried about this game before it started. Wow, they just scored as I was typing. This is crazy.

What is Kiprusoff doing out there? He's just flopping all over the place. Or was, I should say, before he took himself out.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||They are, but Iron Mountain||
They are, but Iron Mountain (where I'm from) traditionally wins the Mid-Pen Conference and Ishpeming is stuck playing second fiddle. However, I would like to point out that Ishpeming was the only team to give Traverse City St. Francis a decent game last season. Holy Crap TCSF was pretty good apparently. Here are their results (all wins):
|4 years 2 weeks ago||I just noticed that he is||
I just noticed that he is playing in the Superior Dome in some highlights. Turns out his team beat Ishpeming. It's weird seeing a somewhat local team (everything is kind of local in the U.P.) on a highlight video.

I read it as 6 foot 1,230-pounds. I thought maybe we were recruiting a grizzly bear. "Sign him up!" I thought.

I sure was. My bad. I turn in my nerd badge.

I agree. Hopefully the new Civilization will be more like III and less like the stripped down IV.

And the German team was unsurprisingly not.

Great win for the US, but I wouldn't mind being in charge of comforting the Russian team after that loss.

Why do people only crush my dreams, and not my nightmares?

That clip of him reversing field twice @ 3:20 was crazy.

That's pretty impressive for a sophomore highlight tape. Let's hope this guy ends up blue.

While you are right, I honestly never even looked in that thread because I didn't think I knew who Whetley was.
