When Mount played St. John's at Alliance in 2001, I got to talk to some of the players from thr 2000 Johnnies team, who had graduated.

That was my junior year.  Ugh, that wasn't a real pleasant game.  The HOF was cool, though.

I was at that game.  Unpleasant in many ways.

St. Johns has a basketball team?  :P
Watch it!  I know what my Karma is.

Yes, and just like the football team they are undefeated against Linfield.

Big win for the Johnnies today. Feels weird to be the favorite vs UST. I was fearful it might be some kind of jinx.

When was the last time the Js were favored over UST?

Good first half for the Johnnies in front of a full house.

Surprised this has not been posted here yet. You guys are slipping.  ;D

Thanks for posting. Watching makes me wonder once again why the Johnnies did get the ball to Clark more.

Pretty sure SJU's opponents wondered the same.

Ouch.

I agree on Al Groh. Really knows his stuff and funny as well. Hope he does the Stagg. Way better than Chris Spielman.

  Very surprised to see Oshkosh hold Mount to 10 points in the first half. You guys all said UWO’s weakness was their defense

Thanks for the update. Now that we have an Augie grad as coach maybe we'll be able to compete in the future.

Unfortunately, from the "behind the scenes" stories I've heard of what went down leading up the Willaert's departure from SJU and Schiltz's hiring, I think the once-strong SJU program is living on borrowed time.  There's an alumni group that's fighting, but the administration has all but doomed the program.

Yeah, talking to Kevin and reading between the lines I got that feeling. Trying to be optimistic.

Ryan Keating, quarterback on the 2003 national champs was a six year guy.  He started out at U of M as a basketball player and redshirted.   While at SJU he had a medical redshirt.

In 2003 when the team gathered for the first time everyone introduced themselves.  After Keating introduced himself Gagliardi said "**** Keating, you've been here longer than I have."

At public schools it can be difficult to get into all the classes you need for your major in only four years. Generally not an issue for privates.

Wrestling Update - No. 2 (D-III) Augsburg improves to 5-1 in duals, claimed 8 of 10 bouts in 35-9 win over Division II MSU-Moorhead.  Auggies compete at St. Cloud State Holiday Inn/Husky Open on Saturday.

Augsburg's No.8 ranked (DIII)  Tanner Vassar with a very impressive 13-2, major-decision win over MSU-Moorhead No. 7-ranked (D-II) Adam Blees.

Not surprised at this outcome but for the wrestling fans out there, I submit this report.

Is now a good time to ask if Levell got his degree?

I think it is time to give it up on that one.

BDB, is the point of that photo the score of the game or the two advertisements for Bob & Steve's?   ;)

p.s. I still have my Bob & Steve's coffee mug.  When I moved and dramatically downsized that was one of the few I kept.
