  1. Just saw on 10/11 the Men’s/Women’s season will start on November 25th. Details I’m sure to come...
  2. Both Men/Women’s Basketball to begin on November 25th...
  3. To quote David St. Hubbins of Spinal Tap fame: “That’s nit picking isn’t it”?
  4. Good for Jervay, Stoudamire & that 2000 Trailblazer team were arguably the greatest team to NEVER play for an NBA Title.
  5. I’ve gotta hunch Teddy’s gonna come in here & make a BIG splash ala’ Petteway/Palmer. Here’s hoping for some B1G Hoops come January...!
  6. I’d like to share a story concerning MLK & systemic racism. I lived across the street from a “Cop Bar” in Mpls for 10 years. I walked in there the morning of MLK Day, must have been 2012/13 & one Cop said to the other “If we just would’ve shot four more of ‘em, we’d have the whole week off”...
  7. It’s easy to forget Olson went to FIVE Final Fours, cutting down the nets with Loren Woods & Arizona in ‘01....
  8. The first few Pink Panther movies never disappoint...
  9. The only Bowl game I’ve ever been to was the ‘95 Orange Bowl (the last played AT the Orange Bowl) when we handed Ray Lewis & Warren Sapp their Asses in the 4th quarter. Went to the players Hotel after the game where Tomich/Wistrom we’re behind the bar serving Martinis ...
  10. I’ve been a LeBron hater & lifelong Laker fan so the script is flipped for me. AD provides me some comfort since he’ll be around long after James retires. I’m hoping for a Laker/Bucks Final with lots of Kareem interviews...
  11. I thought he was coming here & the appeal of being “the MAN” @ his home State U, taking them where they’d never been before would be too tempting to pass up. (Especially with Freddie’s Run n Gun) Now, I’ll have to hope we’re in the Sweet Sixteen while he’s sitting in Lawrence with KU on probation...
  12. Is it TOO soon to start "bad mouthing" Sallis & claiming he wasn't that good in the first place, or should I wait until he's cutting down the nets with Kentucky...?
  13. If you haven’t seen the Documentary “Hoop Dreams” I highly recommend it. Speaks to a LOT of these same issues & is fascinating story as well. Deals with Chicago’s Catholic/Public leagues & two young men’s rise & fall...
  14. He’ll never be as famous as Prairie View’s most celebrated alum: Mr. T
  15. My main point was whether Northwestern plays football or not, it will have ZERO impact on the city of Chicago. Conversely, Husker football NOT playing will have a devastating effect on Lincoln, that & Scott’s desire to have his players “backs” I think was why he was so adamant about seeing this through.
  16. I’m sure most of us have heard Michael Wlibon’s rant about Nebraska, & while most of it is true he needs to be reminded of a few things. First of all, Northwestern Football is an economic *blip* on the Chicago landscape, & the sun doesn’t rise/set with the Wildcats or the Illini. The financial loss to Lincoln will be devastating. Secondly, the Big 8 was the BEST Conference in Football during the 70’s-80’s-90’s while the Big 10 was largely irrelevant...We’re obviously not going anywhere, but it does get REAL old to be constantly reminded that it’s still Michigan & Ohio St’s Conferen
  17. On what’s been a very disappointing day for all Husker sports fans, I can’t say I’m terribly surprised. Now is the time to hunker down for the collective good, ride this out & hopefully come out the other side scarred but smarter. Oh, & much thanks for the “props” thrown out to fellow Superior alum Ed Weir...
  18. Say it ain’t so Joe, my Twins are on a collision course with destiny...
  19. As of yesterday numbers were decreasing in New Mexico & Vermont, plateauing in about 5 others, increasing in the rest. Not trying to be an alarmist, I just fear we’re in for a LONG slog...
  20. Rock Chalk Jay-Hawk... Boulder is just a bunch of trust fund hippies! And all my family went to CSU, Go Rams!
  21. NBA resumes tonight, meanwhile 48/50 States are seeing their Covid numbers rise. I fear schools re-opening even with prudent restrictions could cause these numbers to skyrocket. I worked in public education for 16 years & it’s hard to be optimistic right now...
  22. I’ll forever miss the days when there was an AL/NL East & West. You won your division or you went home. Baseball had a finality, a certitude it could Lord over ALL the other sports. Now it’s more & more watered down every year. This season will be a “one off” for sure, but then it’s back to a ONE game playoff for yer wildcards & what’s really the point of that?
  23. I think they call that a “Bro” or maybe a “shooting sleeve” all I know is I want em to win REAL bad...
  24. I know we’re supposed to refrain from politics, but is that Ted Cruz...?
  25. Could be an ALCS rematch from ‘02, but the Twins added former NL MVP Josh Donaldson to a lineup that set the All-time HR record...(307)
