  • SPORTS MOMENT: My son's college soccer team winning the NCAA D3 National Championship and he being named to the All Final Four Team. After the final whistle, him jumping the fence and coming into the stands to hug his mom and I. Best moment ever.

After he took his swing, Cerina was back pedaling and talking smack at Amir until Q got his attention with that shove and shut him up quick.  Fighting is never condoned and the punishment is stated pretty clearly in the rules, but having been there and close to the action, the game was essentially over and Cerina wanted to take out whatever his frustrations were on Amir and got what he deserved.  For a guy who contributed as little as he did, I wonder what he was thinking.... I'm just glad the team showed good self control overall and Amir didn't throw one in response...

Thanks Birm for all the info and while it is very early, its great to know some of the key names to read up on, watch videos and begin that fretting process that drives so many of us a little crazy, as these teenagers take their turn in the limelight that is non-stop recruiting...

Their defensive coaches have proven over and over that they can coach up replacement players and Sparty's defense has been pretty solid throughout Dantonio's tenure.  I would expect by the time we play them they will have things sorted out to some degree.  I have great confidence that we will be highly motivated and prepared for them....

Meech- we all had faith you'd end up a Buckeye but for a few days you had a few thousand folks worried....  

So glad your dreams have been realized so far.  Now let's get those other ones!

Let's win against TTUN and then go from there....  This team isn't good enough to look past any next game.  Losing to Penn State should be their reality check that they are flawed but so are the other teams left to play.   I have faith in them but I know our strengths as a team are dependent on eliminating these horrible shooting nights and minimizing late game turnovers and mistakes.  Should be fun to watch it all unfold.  Go Bucks!

I think the other Big Ten coaches have come to realize that flipping recruits is a practice that is going to exist going forward.  Look at how many of our conferences coaches flipped recruits this recruiting season.  You don't hear much complaining now from anyone, and Tubby Hoke has even relaxed his hard core policy of no visits by his commits.  It's a reality that all coaches need to understand and raise their recruiting efforts or in the end they will face issues like Rutgers did this year....

He spoke his mind.   Everyone who met him loved him.  It's a shame he had to go but some of the things he said couldn't be defended.   Still- he'll always be one of our most beloved leaders.

With so many great recruits we are already in on, this next recruiting year should be a wild ride.  It would be nice to get a QB commit early to help momentum and get the top players here to visit.  It's going to be fun for sure.  What's everyone's prediction of the date of the first panic posting about how this class is shaping up?   In Urban we trust...
