Watched a lot of football today. Saw Garrett Dooley, late of Rochester, playing LB for Da Badgers. Nice to see him still in the game; I thought he washed out, for some reason

Going to shop-a-palooza at west campus with my wife. Just wondering if there is someone at the door to whom I can give my Man-Card temporarily, or is it a permanent forfeiture situation? In any event, goodbye cruel world. Pretty clear its over for me now. Go Cycs! Shop til you drop!

I know speaking for myself, as one who long yearned for a cyclone victory over Joliet Catholic, the win over providence (dondanville, lantz, Walton, gilpin, Wilson) will just have to do. It was a soothing balm, and almost as good, just not quite the same thing. Darn good though. Mr cornerrat seems to somewhat share the obsession I once had for a cyclone hilltopper tilt that goes our way, but that increasingly looks like a pipe dream of yesteryear. Of which I have many and not just related to sport.

I wonder if they are still running the double wing offense up there, and it f that is part of the problem. That, and of course, the dilution of talent, or however you want to phrase it-----a more even distribution of talent as fewer kids are attracted to private schools. It used to be they just pushed people around on the line and had great backs to carry the ball. But what I am wondering is does that still work, now that every school has the year-round weight training program and so many more sophisticated offensive schemes? Would like to hear from someone who knows. I used to post to their board years ago and felt quite welcome there, they seemed like a good bunch with a proud tradition but there seemed to be rumblings of discontent and finally the board went kaput and it sounds like the program has, too. I just wonder what if time has passed the old double wing by, as it has me. I went to most of the SHG jca games and never felt like SHG was even in one, except for when peterman was QB and still they stuffed us and our comeback hope. I really froze my fanny that day. That peterman bunch was sure a good team I thought.
