"Armbuster" once replied to me on another thread about VU, so maybe there are at least 3 of us?
Did you ever post on their board (Valpo FanZone Forum)? I haven't bothered in a year and a half and yet I'm still the all-time leading poster there...

are you serious? I'm not even (that) old and I know that that didn't come from them, it came from LIFE Magazine in an essay about ND and ND was TICKED about it originally.

sorry wrong thread.
it's a good trade even if you were just dropping 4 spots and picking up an extra 2nd rounder. but to get a guy to help in GR and divest yourself of the albatross? hats off

I don't know why it took me like 10 years to finally get it, but now that it's like 20 years old, I don't know that I could recommend an album more highly than Chamberlain's The Moon My Saddle.
I'll leave it there so I don't get too long. The Moon My Saddle, people.

|15 weeks 5 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.
|15 weeks 5 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).

Not to be OT on an OT, but I'm coming back to MI to work for his son. Too bad I'll be a day late for the funeral.
Will be good to be back among the Blue! May we all go home after a big win. (Just...not the same win, of course.)
