I hope we give them a game. This is a very good team we are playing tonight.

CAPPY:

How are you doing friend? Got to the Cornell game, really liked the hustle, hope some of the freshman start to develop. Ed did not leave the cupboard bare, there is some talent there and the coaches will have to work on developing the two giants. Need to earn their coaching spurs!

A very healthy, happy New Year to all.

8th man in mpg. Don’t think it’s a major factor. Ranked 18th.

lol. Eric, I’d love to hear the story sometime. Is your profile pic the famous incident???

I sent Mikey this story in PM, but then thought, why not take a stroll down memory lane? We’re going to need to rely on memories this season anyway. Also, for anyone who doesn’t know the story behind my picture…

I was right in the middle of the Illinois court-storming of 2009. After the game, there was much criticism about how the crowd needed to be more aware of not hurting the players or whatever. I was still on emotional high about the whole experience that I made a ridiculous defense in my blog about how I didn’t tackle Talor Battle. It got picked up by Deadspin and I was the joke of the internet for a day.

I knew the story behind your non tackle of Talor, but I never read the blog. ;D Great post!
