Tough living in the shadow of a legend, especially when itís your father. Best of luck to him. Will be very interesting to see who fills the role.

Eric Raeburn would allow them to keep it in the family  ;)

So would Geoff Dartt. 

The bigger issue at the moment is the recent academic direction a new academic nerd is taking at Mount.  There's a reason so many long time professors/employees are taking their early retirement packages.  This truly could be the end of not only the Kehres era, but the dominance that has been Mount Union football.  Never mind that 100+ male students come to Mount every year to play football, let's just refocus the university direction to embrace change?

Mount will be very competitive for the next few years due to the Kehres effect, but after that?   ???

Big congratulations to Kehres. Part of me wonders if almost sold himself short though. Leipold got an HC job in the same conference; and has been quite successful. Interesting tidbits Skunks. Do you think that factored into his decision? Will the legend continue as AD?

#2 took a Minnesota rite of passage yesterday.



Very nice, Oz. Love to see the youngsters getting exposed to spearing. I do a lot of hunting and fishing, and spearing is, by far, my favorite.

Is that a 7 tine Vernig she's using?

Raeburn was just named the head coach at Gannon University (Div II school in Pa.) in November.

You've probably seen this in the rest of the posts from this morning or in the D3football.com news article, but no, Larry Kehres will not continue as AD.

It seems like the timing was necessary. Sounded like the feedback VK was getting was that in order to be a D-I head coach, he would need to be a D-I assistant first.

I donít know, to be honest. It could be a store bought (or door prize) version but my dad also welds his own so that could be a home job.

I like it! However Faunchy wouldn't even buck-up for the cheap $hitty light beer. I doubt I could get him to buy some of this.

Pretty cool!

I'm apparently not fully Minnesotan, as I've never ice fished, let alone speared.  Regular fishing doesn't do much for me, beyond just enjoying being on the lake in warm weather, so I've never been interested in sitting in on a frozen lake doing an activity I already don't care for.

I'm not much into spearing either as it's too much sitting for too long, but at least I've done enough of it.  But don't feel too bad.  I was showing that photo to a colleague last night who said (and I'm not joking at all here), "I'm from the city.  The fish is dead, right?  You can eat it?"  It's going to take me a long time to get over saying "Moron!" under my breath every time I'm speaking with him now.

Your dad doesn't practice "poke and release" spearing?  ;D

I've done a bit of that...not intentionally. Sometimes they find a way to wiggle themsleves off.

Ice fishing is a great way to enjoy winter. I tell people, it's just like being a kid again...only we have nicer forts. And don't have to sneak the beer.
