  • SPORTS MOMENT: Alright it's a tie now, and both of these moments are very recent:
    1) November 15, 2014: Northwestern shocks Notre Dame 43-40. Regardless of the fact that ND wound up going 8-5, celebrating a win in South Bend when we were sitting at 3-6 was indescribable.
    2) January 12, 2015: I don't even have to say it. I cried. Go Bucks.

Just throwing this out there; this isn't a horrible Northwestern team. Their last 3 games prior: lost in OT at Sparty after leading at the end of regulation, lost by 5 to Illinois, lost by 2 at TTUN. They're competing with most teams, just don't have the experience to get over the hump yet. I'd look at this game with more optimism if I were any of you: Russell has the ability to singlehandedly carry this team to close wins. I still think he'll improve in bigger games (where he has struggled) as he gains more experience.

Just my opinion, I think the fact that we fell behind 21-6 early and all the haters started crowing made the eventual win that much sweeter.

If he's out for the year and leaves this year, his pro potential is purely as an athlete. If he takes the hypothetical redshirt, comes back and has a successful senior season, he may get his shot as a QB. His decision may come down to how much playing QB at the next level means to him.

I'm still holding out hope that this injury is minor enough for him to be back for Sparty, but I'm not optimistic. Get well soon Brax!

I need to get up to Breck to find Bauserman. It's my new goal

Comment 16 Mar 2014

I can't help but imagine how good this team could have been if we had landed Rodney Hood. Could have been better than the team last year IMO. But it is what it is, and all things considered I think Thad deserves a lot of credit for this team being relevant despite the offensive woes. It should say something about his coaching ability that a team likely to be seeded in the 5/6 range feels like a disappointment. I could legitimately see us losing on Thursday/Friday or making a run all the way to Dallas, and I don't think either would surprise me. I just want Craft's legacy to end in a fitting way.

Remember the Louisville athletic department's dream year last year? Men's basketball champs, women's basketball runners-up, and that shocking win over Florida in the Sugar Bowl.

I have convinced myself that this is the Sparty athletic department's dream year, and my bracket will reflect it.

The page source is officially my favorite part of the new site.

Check that, just saw Duke is the hypothetical 3 seed. I'd take them over Sparty and us.

Comment 07 Feb 2014

If by some miracle we beat Kentucky, I'd have us in the final 4 in that bracket. Which is crazy since I don't think this is a final 4 team. But a 3rd game against a Sparty team we almost beat on the road in the elite 8? I'd be down

Jamarco wants to visit Sparty, we say okay, wait it out, and it works out. Sparty commit Slade wants to visit Ohio State and they immediately pull his offer? Not sure where Dantonio is going with this one, but hey, his loss is our gain.
