Yes, we ALSO play basketball

I know the young lady means well, but does the sign in the stands "Yes, we're a basketball school now" bother anyone else? 

It implies to me that we stopped being a football school, which I know she doesn't mean. FFS, we're 10-2 and ranked 8th in the country in football. 

So, we're ALSO pretty damn good at basketball.

First of all, we are 7th in the country in football (and b-ball). 

 It is tongue in cheek, and anybody with half a brain knows that finishing in the top 10 three out of four years is a good thing.   It just brings more attention to the school, it does not bother me at all.

People like winning championships. Ranking doesn't mean anything to the average fan. 


I dont know what the season rankings were of any of Beileins Big Ten winning teams were.

Basketball is better than football at the moment.

Let her have her fun. Hope she and the students pack the Crisler Center all season long.
