Very cool story, and that's great for the team and for Ian. Seems like something Disney could get their hands on...

Also, in the vein of high school states, shameless plug for my former high school, Novi girls' soccer just won states and is #1 in the country. Lots of friends on the team (some of whom I know read this blog..), so congrats to them!

EDIT: HOLY SHIT, Wife in South Bend is chiming in for the first time in MGoBlog history.  It's a red-letter day.  She's a Rockford grad, and she has the following comment:

"Be nice to Rockford. It's a bunch of little white kids from the suburbs.  They have to try really hard to be good at sports. So, be nice."

Ian Hearn was my old high school coach and and a very good teacher of the game. but like this story says, he cared way more about the guys on the team and his family. I am glad for him, Good to see he and the family are doing well in Rockford.


Also, congrats on the state title.
