Someone needs to do a playoff bracket competition for the weird foods that humans of various stripes eat with pride.  Lutefisk and haggis would be my early front-runners, but I'm sure there are other contenders.

Knowing Swedes, they probably don't. They'd can it and let it ferment into a foul-smelling semi-liquid, or they'd gelatinize it by curing it in lye for a winter.

And then they would lie to your face and say that the sauce makes it taste better.

Chitterlings and escargot probably also belong in the bracket.

Ha! Yep.

Here's the winner of your playoff bracket: surströmming. I've been in the vicinity when a can of surströmming was opened, and I can only describe the odor as being what a dumpster in a heat wave would smell like if it was full of cat food and used Pampers.

I have been craving Ann Sather cinnamon rolls all day, but the last few posts ended that.

Per his Twitter account, St. Viator's Peter Lambesis has picked IWU -- 6-3, lefty combo guard who is very athletic and a strong defender.

Noe sure looks like a good 3-point shooter. 

Need some new bigs!

Ron Rose and the Titans have landed Matt Leritz, a 6-7 PF from St. Louis U High.  Leritz averaged 16.2 ppg and 9.6 rpg this year and has been one of IWU’s top recruiting targets.  He is a very skilled post who is good down low, but can also step out and shoot the 3 (made 33 3s this year).

Looks pretty good.  Needs to bulk up a bit.  Nice left hand.

Bring on more new bigs!    :)

CARTHAGE “RECRUIT”?

Saw a release from St. Francis HS in Wheaton, IL re their 2017-2018 athletes who have “signed” with colleges. The release indicates that 6’5” 226 pound PF Noah Howard, has “signed” with Carthage. He is pictured in the article wearing a Carthage shirt. However, in checking several possible sources, I was unable to find much about him other than his being listed on the SF roster. It doesn’t appear that he was ever a starter, or that he played more than a few minutes in the games in which he did appear. I was unable to find any type of stat line on him.
Perhaps this is a player who is the D3 equivalent of a walk-on in that he basically recruited himself to Carthage and, having been on his high school team, decided to give basketball at the next level a shot?
