Yes, thought the same thing when he said it, then realized he was just trying to pump the game he was announcing.  Gotta build that buzz for every game to keep your employer solvent!

Thanks for sharing.  I’m not familiar with freestyles, but the talent displayed is amazing.  Things like this are just another reminder to me that it’s a big wide world out there full of unique and talented people.  Pretty cool to journey to a different part of it for 10 minutes and venture to an area I’m less familiar with to learn something new and be impressed.

I respect Wisconsin like I do the Amish. I could never in my life live that lifestyle, but I respect the fortitude to hold on to the old ways throughout humanity's rapid descent into the technology wormhole. 

Without a doubt, the best take I’ve ever read about Wisconsin football—and I feel like the same applies to their basketball team annually.  Kudos, DJ!

St Johns Attendance:  Sell-out or near sell-out (basketball)

Schott Attendance:  Where is everybody?

This would all be so much easier (and more fun to watch) if we had an 8-team playoff.  5 conference champs plus ND and 2 wildcards (SEC runner-up and one other) this year would make things quite interesting.  Let the best team prove themselves among the best!

Same here.  Absolutely hilarious young kid chicanery.  Having been to that diner in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago many times and now having heard the song for the first time, the word picture is so clear in my head.  What a great story.  I can't stop laughing.

Been watching Ricky Slade's clips since Birm mentioned him back in 2015 when he was just a freshman.  Kid looked like a little Reggie Bush then with all the upside potential in the world PLUS Ohio State was his dream school.  I know numbers are tight and we might get another one just like him (or better) in Gill, but it would be cool to get him in the class somehow.  Seems like a very special talent.

Agreed, and great counterpoint to Helmholdt's critique.  Birm even said as much during his write-up of the Army All-American week in San Antonio.  I have faith that our O-line coaching can develop his pass blocking technique.

Thanks for the post.  He definitely has high upside potential and just watching the video affirms that.  I think the key to his future success will hinge on something you highlighted...

once he gets a few years of elite training

Let's hope he (and all of our WR's) will get it.  DJ's Skully this morning mentioned something similar and how that has been lacking in 2016.  I'm confident we have all the tools and weapons in place to be an elite offensive team, hopefully 2017 will be the year they all come together.  He could be a key contributor if it happens.
