Well, it's pretty clear the Cyclones won't be challenging for an NCAA Tournament berth, this season. Iowa State is now 0-2 against the MVC, after losing to UNI, 69-62. It's clear that the Cyclones have much more talent, than the Panthers, but they just don't have the right plan. Half of the time Royce White is bringing the ball up the floor. The other half of the time, he's posting up inside (which is where he should be). UNI didn't have a player to stop White on the post...not many teams do. It's clear, at this point, that Ben Jacobson is a better basketball coach than Fred Hoiberg. He proved it last season, and he proved it again, tonight.
When is MC22 going to step up to the big leagues and upgrade its cameras and signal? I'm not asking for HD, just a clear picture. Please! It's just brutal watching these games.The only moment during the game when the picture was clear, was when the screen went black for 90 seconds.
|MC22: Please get new equipment|
That being said, I guess it's better than what the Big Ten is doing. The majority of Iowa basketball games have been on BTN.com (and you need a subscription to watch). As a kid, growing up in the late 80's and 90's, I remember every Hawkeye game being on tv. Is this the wave of the future? Games on a computer screen? What are we going to use our thousand-dollar HDTV's for?
Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler, says that he could be out for the rest of the season. The Bears were hoping his broken thumb would heal in time for Cutler to return by the final week of the regular season. If he's done, so are the Bears.
As a Bears fan, I've already conceded the fact that the Packers are going to win their second straight Super Bowl. There's no one better than Aaron Rodgers. In fact, I think he's on his way to becoming (arguably) the best quarterback of all-time. Just typing that makes me want to vomit.
Ed Wilson says the season's first big snowstorm could be on the way. I'm all for a white Christmas, but we're still nearly 4 weeks away!
We had an interesting discussion about ugly babies, today, on the Murph n Andy show. How big of a sin is it to tell someone their baby is hideous? It may just be the worst thing you could ever say to someone. The next time you have a beef with someone, and that person says 'you're fat', 'no one likes you', or 'you can go to hell' ... just fire back with, 'Oh yeah, well at least I don't have a baby that looks like it belongs in a jar of water in some high school anatomy class!"
|Sadly, this baby is wearing a men's medium.|
I've been running a lot lately --- way more than I've ever run in my life. The problem with running is, it gets boring after a while. I've been able to work my way up to running 5 or 6 miles 3 or 4 times a week. I think my body could do more, but my mind can't keep it going. I've got an iPhone, and a TV...what else can I do to keep my mind occupied?
