  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 1984 Iowa game. They came in ranked #1 and we beat them in the Shoe in the rain. The place was rocking. Then I met some cute Iowa coeds later at the Hineygate. A great day all around.

It is also the 150th anniversary of the golden spike driven at the transcontinental railroad in Utah.  Though more likely it is for the sesquicentennial for the City of Muskegon.  Could be that.

Both absolute gentlemen who did things the right way.  The class and kindness they both showed transcended either of their records.  If I had a kid who played basketball I would be thrilled if they played for either man.  I wish them both the best.

As much fun as it is to poke fun at the millennial Gen-Z'ers (or whatever they are now), frostbite is nothing to mess around with.  I remember one winter day in '83 I believe, the sun was out, there was no wind but the temperature was about -5.  (This was a Saturday, so there were no classes to close.)  I almost froze my ears off.  Literally.  There was a layer of ice on them when I got inside and when they thawed out it was the most painful thing I can remember.  Later that week, I was surprised at the number of students around campus that had ears and fingers bandaged from frostbite or near frostbite.  Given the amount of walking between buildings the average student does in a day, I am good with no class tomorrow.  We Ohioans are simply not as mentally prepared for this sort of cold like they are in North Dakota or Canada.  Canadians can point and laugh and call me names all they want.  Whatever,  I hate Winter.

How about we simply use the old BCS formula to pick the 4 playoff teams going forward.  Most people aren't frustrated with the 4 teams they ended up choosing, it is the complete lack of of transparency layered with heaps of double-speak.  Just use the formula then we can all see what is going on.  Rid the process of the bullshit.

I feel like I am watching the eighth and ninth place teams in the league in a game that doesn't mean Jack for anything.

That was, um, odd.  I don't recall a game where there were that many balls hit the receivers in the hands and end up somewhere else.

Oh well.  Go Huskies.
