It's somewhat amazing that the team is even competive in the Midwest region, let alone at the national level. When I was on the team, I had friends from HS that went to Northern and they were way more serious than even the most dedicated racers on our team (they had coaches and trained daily at Marquette Mtn). The only thing competitive about the team back then was the flip cup (Captain's challenge anyone?) and the only thing we were known for was epic parties. Kudos to the team, glad to hear about the success! Go Blue!

One of the best ones: 


"You got one more year, Izzo. Spartan Nation will not tolerate another drubbing by the likes of the stinking weasels from Ann Arbor.



I guess the opinions turn fast in EL, too. 

Go blue!

01/27/2010 - 2:21pm coaching effect?

I recently heard of a professor in Notre Dame's Business School that was using similar numbers (pre-college scouting rank, post-college draft rank) to determine the effectiveness of coaching staffs'. Interesting to think that over a number of years (say 5), some schools bring in a lot more high quality than come out of their program. Obviously there are probably a few other factors to consider, but on an aggregate basis these numbers probably say a lot about the effectiveness of the coaches that are in place and whether are not they are able to develop the talent which they recruit.
