    Steven Ortiz

    eek thats one of if not the worst D1 program this year. Has MN had poor luck with 4 star players? Jeff Jones is the first one that comes to mind.

    St Thomas DI hockey?

    UST football is the only sport of which they are not going all in. Pioneer league is "d1" non scholarship football. Most of the other teams only have football teams because they wanted to compete D1 level for a different sport. Dayton, Davidson, Valpo, etc.. all have notable basketball teams...

    Chet Holmgren says he'll be the best player in the NBA in 2 months

    I think he is trying to portray bravado ahead of the draft. Cant let them get any whiffs of lack of confidence to be drafted #1. Chet could be a great pro if he can put on some weight, I'm not confident he will be able to do that. Dude looks like a stick bug.

    Spartans Wire: Projecting best- and worst-case scenarios for every Big Ten team in 2022

    I definitely see us winning @Neb and 1 of @UW, @PSU, @MSU. Unfortunately Bowling Green is still in my mind so I wont rule out dropping one to a lesser opponent.

    Coach Fleck’s New Look

    I really want to but PJ seems (to me) like the kind of guy who would get elective cosmetic surgery. He's on TV all the time and very image conscious. He seems to be very progressive in his fashion sense and new age motivational management schtick. The medical need for the eyelid tuck seems dubious.

    Future (financially) of MLB?

    I think many people just don't have the attention span for baseball anymore. Going to any pro sports event is becoming increasingly unaffordable for your average family nowadays. MLB certainly is not growing its audience.

    Coach Fleck’s New Look

    Nearly every middle aged man wants to prevent or reverse hair loss, PJ dove in right away to the chrome dome look. He is basically in show business and he must feel that his looks are important for him to row the boat. I don't think I have heard of a football coach getting cosmetic surgery...

    St. Thomas Looking to Buy T&C for New Arena

    UST tends to cut a lot off the sticker price for good students but they also require you live on campus for two years, which is a lot of extra dough

    St. Thomas Looking to Buy T&C for New Arena

    I think the T&C offer was kind of a longshot PR move. It was very radical and in response plan B will come off as much more reasonable to the public. That said, Having large events at Montreal and Cleveland would be a traffic nightmare the way it is now. I think UST is making a big mistake...

    people really gas up Ben Johnson but the W column in the standings is what the kids pay attention to.

    Artificial Turf

    Allianz field in Saint Paul is natural grass. They roll out Led lights on wheels and there is a heating system underground. They do the same thing in Green Bay. It could be done anywhere. Just requires more employees and a higher water bill. A lot of times Corporations donate equipment in order...

    Closing of the Uptown Theatre and Edina Cinema

    I saw Blair Witch Project midnight showing there also, A Serious Man The Room I saw tons of movies at Edina as well. I had the short lived "movie pass" that eventually only worked at Landmark theaters and I would go to 2 movies a week at those theaters.
