You Want to Tell Him or Should I???

First off, prayers going out this afternoon to Northwestern Football Coach Randy Walker's family and friends, and the entire Northwestern community. He passed away waaay too soon.

Next...I didn't realize that if I wanted to boost the number of hits on this site, all I had to do was make fun of a dorky little kid that happened to be wearing a PSU jersey and get Brian to link it. The three biggest days of hits this site has ever had all in a row, and frankly it's not close. Poor kid.

This is old news by now, but I can't resist commenting on U of M's new basketball recruit that Tommy Amaker offered a scholarship to without having ever seen him play. After committing, the kid had this to say:

“Oh man, it’s crazy; this is something I’ve dreamed about ever since I picked up
a basketball,” he said. “To play in a packed house in front of 20,000 fans
screaming with every game on ESPN, it’s going to be incredible.”

Ummm....errr......well if he wants to play in front of 6,000-8,000 fans on Comcast Local, I guess we're the school for him. Does he think he committed to the Pistons?

I hate this time of year.....

I think the Deadspin link was the real traffic magnet, myself.

Yeah, but I imagine you get credit for it ending up there. You should've seen the look on my face when I pulled up my site-traffic-o-meter and see a bunch of 100-200s in a row, then a 600+ which I figured was coming...Then I logged in the next day and see 4,400. I thought there was a glitch.

And you're like "4,400? You mean in an HOUR right?" ;-)
