U$T Tommie Media webcast completely sucked ass today...Johnnies played really well for about 35 minutes.
Officiating was terrible at best.

bitter much?  maybe you shoulda walked the few blocks and actually attended the game?  I know, a strange concept.

fro those of you old enough to remember hoops at SJU before the Palestra went up (I am glaring at you, Palmer), this should stir up memories:

Tomorrow is a great and important day in beer history. It is the 80th anniversary of beer being available in cans.

Drake-  condolences on the passing of your mother ......she must have been an amazing woman
lest you forget, I am a few YEARS younger than you, so watch the old-man jokes   ;D  Grand-paw 

speaking of amazing....the stellar play of Saarela continues to draw praise far and wide:

nice come from behind win for UST today. UWEC was smoking hot in first half- 72% including eight 3s (80%)- but the UST defense stepped up big in 2nd half forcing a ton of TOs and cooling off the Bluegolds. Shaeffer played a great game for the Toms, as did Montero.

Saw something i've never seen in a basketball game....a halfcourt 10 second violation with NO pressure from the defense. UST had been pressing but the UWEC kid seemed to be sizing the lay of the court up without realizing he hadn't crossed the half line yet!

due to facilities conflict (the court @Shoenecker is needed to host the NCAA Regional volleyball championship game Saturday night and a football game at home in the afternoon), UST's regular season opener will be played SUNDAY @ 1PM ...hosting UW-EC. The Toms trounced Mankato State (D2 preseason #7) in exhibition play last week. Those predicting the demise of the Purple Machine (glaring at Palmer in particular) should take note :)
Since you're free Saturday night, you could make the trip north for round 1 of the Snelling Ave. Shootout.   

Also saw the Oles beat SW Minnesota State.  Maybe there should be some sort of NSIC vs MIAC challenge.
When did UWRF relocate to Snelling Ave? :)  (they are at Bethel that night). I assume you're meaning the battle between Hamline & UNWR or whatever acronym is in vogue. I've been mulling both Snelling Ave battles around, along with possibly the VB regional title game.....I keep reading on here about owing someone chicken dinner but its hard to pay off the debt if they are chicken to show up  BAWWWWWWWWK

I received an email overnight that brightened my Monday:

The Vince Flynn Estate, along with Emily Bestler, Senior VP and Editor-in-Chief of Emily Bestler Books are excited to announce the decision to continue the Mitch Rapp series.
 
Bestler, who was Vince Flynn's only editor throughout his entire career and whose imprint is a division of Simon & Schuster's Atria Books, signed a three book deal with 47-year-old New York Times bestselling author Kyle Mills.
 
Mills was first published in 1997 and has penned 13 thrillers, most notably Fade and The Ares Decision.
 
Mills will complete The Survivor, the book Flynn was writing at the time of his death on June 19, 2013, and then write two additional Mitch Rapp novels. The Survivor is tentatively scheduled to release in the fall of 2015.

Not of any football impact (as of today, anyway) but interesting to see that UWS exited for WIAC for the UMAC....

Curious to see if CSS will try again for the MIAC...

a MOST interesting development in the WIAC.....will Norbert's try to join the WIAC?  I honestly dont see CSS getting in the MIAC unless Mac (and maybe 2 others that have been rumored leaving in the recent past ) leave the fold. But I dont see anyone leaving the MIAC, but maybe Im delusional on that  :)

I gotta say, this makes me pretty disappointed with Ramler. There was a lot of disruption and I'm sure personal emotional pain last year when Fasching upset the order like he did.  And now we find ourselves right back in the old order.  I've seen the scenario play out before in business. I'm hoping this one is running to a different play book.
how is it Rambler's fault that Jimmy-boy is back in  charge? He didnt promote him, he only took an opportunity he thought was good for him.

That slurping sound you heard was the collective salivating of all MIAC defensive coordinators upon hearing that Jimmyboy is back  :)
