Also shoveling out from this mess.

If only they made a snow removal machine...

How would I teach my boys about hard work if I just used a machine?

If a future house has a driveway and a larger garage, I likely will. As is, I don't have enough garage space already. And I mostly just have a corner lot worth of sidewalk to shovel. It's tolerable.

I can't wait for the Tommies response to the "Tommie English test"! I can't believe they'll let that one slide by. Stay tuned to this board.  ;D   :o

I'm spending more time on the basketball board. Also shoveling out from this mess.
Both more interesting than Australian footy and the MUC/Oz lovefest

Not to keep talking about Spence, but yes, he does live (or has lived, at least) in the TC.

Sure sure BUT is he a TRUE (TM) Tommie?

I mean, I know it's just St. Paul and not Minneapolis, but why you gotta give one of the twin towns such a bad name?

As a St Paul resident and possibly a fan of the same D3 team, +k

Just witnessed the live stream of Stokman knocking down a 3 with 1 second to go for the Johnnies to win by 1 at Concordia. I was nearly prepared to see SJU drop another.

HSC has 12 SEC transfers !!!!!!!!

Do you think a bunch of regulators are going to be any good on the football field?

Wow that's kind of a bombshell don't you think? Arguably the top QB in the nation not returning for his senior year.

Wow, just checked the Bport Football 2019 roster, he is not listed.  I can only assume he is transferring.  Staying in D3?  If a player moves from D3 to D1, he needs to sit out a season I believe.  I hope he is receiving some wise guidance....

Did he graduate early?

All I can add is some notes from the boxscore as I was celebrating one child's birthday and taking another to urgent care tonight for pink eye.
Connor Bair played 22 minutes, so hopefully healthy? Not a huge scoring impact with 5 points.
And the new transfer big guy didn't see the floor.

Is Michael Hannon a fifth year senior? I wonder if he is pursuing a masters degree or an engineering degree like Jam mentioned.

Finance. Graduated from CDH in 2014, so I believe that would make him a fifth year. Not sure about the masters side of things.

It's certainly not unheard of, but it's not a given in D3 if you are paying your own way.

Man, if I'm the FY transfer from Oshkosh, do I really only want to play the last third of the season, 7-8 games, plus post season games?  Why not sit out, practice and return next year ready to kick some derriere? Or does he waste a year of eligibility, plus the added expense of tuition for a 5th year?   


I'm sure somebody else is an expert on this that can confirm, but I think he's already used the year of eligibility since he played at Oshkosh this year. Might as well get a chance somewhere else. It is weird that a dude can transfer mid-year and play for 2 different teams in the same year though.

Also add in that, unless he's an Engineering major, he probably doesn't need to go for a 5th year, even if he could preserve the eligibility.

Should have checked closer.  Thank you.  That's interesting.  If he wasn't taking a J-term class, I'm not sure how he's eligible, since he wouldn't have attended any class yet at UST.  But I guess I'm just assuming he wasn't because of the timing of posts on here - it's possible he was enrolled in a J-term.  Alas, he may be in line for some decent minutes Saturday against Hamline if Bair is out.

I suspect he's pretty far down the depth chart for now. That could evolve over time, but we haven't exactly been afraid to play a smaller lineup, as we tend to lack overall size.
Bair has really played much bigger than he is, with his aggressive style. It's been fun to watch him this year.

With regard to Bair - looked like he was grabbing at his back.   Hopefully nothing serious - he's a huge part of the Tommie success this year.

Another fun night in the MIAC.  As expected, the Tommies took care of business against MAC.  Hitting 13 threes in the first half (17 for the game) will do that for you.   Very interested to see if their transfer from UW-Oshkosh, Matthew Rader, gets any minutes in the upcoming games. especially if Bair is out for awhile.   I don't think he can play Saturday, but after that, he should be eligible to play, with the new semester starting.  One of the Tommies few weaknesses is a lack of size, and Rader is 6'7".


Rader showed up in last night's box score with 3 minutes of PT, 2 boards, and 2 points. Will be interesting to see what he does from here on out. The Tommies aren't afraid to go deep on the bench which I think begins to really show at this point in the season.

UST with a nice win and significant bench support once again.
Reviewing the box score, I see Connor Bair with only 3 minutes. No foul trouble or anything, so hopefully it was just precautionary and not a significant injury?

Glad you got the juice back on. Right now in Alliance, the temp is 0 degrees, wind chill is -22 degrees! But no power problems, at least yet. Lots of snow on the ground.
The main concern is running out of beer. Supposed to be -30 degrees around noon so won't go out. If I don't get a delivery, this could be my last post. Never mind, I'll be OK! Stay safe!   ;D
Hey Buddy!
Do not let your beer freeze!  :)

I love when my porch deep freezer basically becomes insulation from the outside cold.

Also dealing with some frozen lines to/from my dishwasher. I think with a space heater and some boiling water I have it rectified, but we'll see.
Try your hair dryer :)

Got that running now, once I found the spots in the drain line that appeared to be frozen.
