Good Luck Eric. Northwestern is a good academic institution, and we would have loved to have you. See you on the field in a couple of years.

This is the video the commentry was referencing: Dennis Bergkamp (Netherlands) scored against Argentina in the World Cup Quarter Finals. It is quite possibly one of the best goals in history of the game. You don't have to be a soccer fan to love his control, poise and execution.

Here's the Youtube link:

Maybe we should tell them that there's a 70% chance their NFL destinations will be cold too - so its time to MAN UP!

No offense to Tate( and best of luck to him in Miami), but how is it DB's job to talk to his family? He's a student-athlete, and his first point of contact should be his position coach, followed by the head coach. Was BH not there to talk to him or his parents?DB is the AD - he cannot get involved with the personal matters of a single student.

I'm surprised BH wasn't contacted, given common San Diego ties.

Sadly, they just want to sell some papers- and a controversial title (combined with bad writing) helps them sell papers than regular journalism. 

FTIW i've just stopped reading the DFP - thats my contribution to them : won't click on their links, won't subscribe - they're not getting a penny out of me after what they did.

Take it down already.

Can't wait to hear the national anthem (done properly this time) at the stadium.

Also: roof should be open if they're doing a fly by

Someone had earlier commented on him as a 'genetic freak' in a different thread. I can't agree more. Sadly, barring a true miracle, this kid will end up in the SEC [sigh].

SC has good location, fantastic alumni base, and connections higher up. Plus its warm. 

Oh, and the fans may be bandwagoners, but these guys know how to tailgate. 

IMO (very very biased) The Big House has the best game day atmosphere - but USC has the best tailgates, hands down

01/28/2011 - 8:09pm Thats coz they don't

UCLA is in westwood, and the Rose Bowl is waaay out in Pasadena. Thats a hike of over an hour. So lot of fans are put off by that. 

Furthermore, UCLA is considered to be the snooty, uptight school, while USC is considered to be the common man's school ( yes, i know the irony of private vs public is quite apparent).

I don't think its a bad idea, but I also don't think TomVH has time to do that kinda stuff.  he's doing a fantastic job as it is: this sounds like Minutiae

01/11/2011 - 3:44am GRUUUUUUUUUDEN

Still holding out hope on this one!

Also: Hoke WANTS this job for 3 square meals a day. He wants this because this is all he's worked for. To be honest, I want that fire! I dont want money to be the only thing- I want passion in the program. RR had it - just couldnt win fast.

I thought it was a classy move. He diverted attention to the team and game, not to himself or to speculation. 

Isn't that what Bo did back in the day?
