Up north today.  Stopped off at Marine General for my favorite northern lure, Williams Whitefish spoons.  Straight silver finish.  Killer on Nords.  Only place in the Midwest that sells the large size.

Bait box was next on hwy 53.  Nestled up next to the big freighters on Lake Superior.  Understated ambience is suttle and imposing.

Tossed crappie minnows all afternoon in 72 degree warmth.  Didn't catch sh1t. Didn't care.

She's not getting a pass, people are burying her. And anyone who is not is accused on solely defending her because she's attractive. Backflips aren't being done, I'm not defending her, I'm defending the one sided nature of the story and the public overreaction.

Again, I've never defended her words. Most of what she said was cringeworthy, however, I feel uncomfortable when private words at a private business she's wasn't a willing patron of is used to suggest her job should be stripped.

And warriorchick, I'm not suggesting the same vitriol, but if you've never been rude at a bar, on the street, etc, well, you're a much better person than myself.

Heisenberg, would you suggest your daughter be fired?

If she had a job in the public spotlight, and made those kind of statements ... maybe

Malek's recruitment to MU is another example of Buzz's madcap recruiting plan to turn MU into another Iowa State or Kansas State. Take an athletic player at whatever cost to program ethics. I still believe he purposely tanked the last year of his program to make a point knowing he would be leaving MU.  Mark my words, Buzz will someday be exposed as the slime ball he is. I hate to think that I supported this guy and hoped he would be the next 'Al'

Iowa State and Kansas State aren't very similar.

Malek Harris, a freshman reserve and former consensus top-100 recruit, was dismissed by K-State coach Bruce Weber on Friday for failing to live up to team standards[/b].

This happened weeks after the season ended.  So it must be something new he did.  Anyone know what he light up last weekend?

Italian(and as far as I know every European) universities don't have sports teams. MU would likely play a 2nd division pro team. I can't see a 1st division team agreeing to play them, and an amateur team wouldn't even be a test, so 2nd division is IMO the only option.

Uconn Basketball: Cornell standout Shonn Miller to visit Uconn
April 17, 2015 by Sean McGarrity


Shonn Miller will be visiting Uconn this weekend as he looks to find a home for his final year of eligibility. The Cornell star redshirted his junior year following a shoulder injury that left him unable to play the 2012-13 season.  The 6-7, 215 pound forward could make for a valued addition to a Huskies team that suffered last season from both lack of depth and experience.

The Ivy League doesn’t allow its graduate students to participate in school athletics, and as a result, many look to transfer elsewhere to play during their fifth year. Miller joins a growing number of student athletes that choose to play their final year of eligibility elsewhere. This includes the likes of Yale’s Jeremiah Kriesberg, who left for Northwestern last season, and Providence’s Tyler Harris, who has already visited Uconn this month.

Head Coach Kevin Ollie will be keen to make a good impression as Miller has already met with several schools including, Illinois, Michigan, and Marquette. Miller poses a threat from both the perimeter and the interior, as well as possessing the ability play both ends of the floor. This versatility makes him an attractive prospect for next season. There is also added appeal in Miller as a fifth-year player because it will open up scholarships for possible 2016 recruits.

Miller played in all 28 games for Cornell this season. His 16.8 points and 8.5 rebounds a game saw him finish second overall in the Ivy League, and a candidate for player of the year. He also finished in the top three in several other notable categories including points, defensive rebounds, free throws, blocks, and field goals.

“I think he (Miller) could have an impact at a major Division I program next season.” Harvard Coach Tommy Amaker said.

The full extent of Miller’s ability was on display during Cornell’s 57-49 upset victory over Harvard on February 27th. He sank several critical shots in the second half including a pair of three-pointers, accentuated by a reverse alley-oop (Dunk at 1:35) late in the game. Miller would finish with a double-double, recording 24 points, 15 assists, and three blocks.

“I think Shonn is a tremendous talent,” Yale coach James Jones said. “He’s big, strong, athletic, he had some thunderous dunks over his career, you shake your head at how awesome they were.”

Coach Kevin Ollie will be on the lookout for players that can play and compete right away and Miller definitely possesses the ability to do so. Should Miller decide that Uconn is the right place for him, the former Ivy League Rookie of the Year could add that extra bit of depth and experience that the Huskies desperately needed last season.

Ollie has had success with fifth-year transfers in the past, most notably Lasan Kromah who helped the Huskies to a national championship in 2014. With a strong out-of-conference schedule this season that will include Texas, Ohio State, and Florida the leadership, experience, and depth Miller can offer could prove indispensable.

Sounds like Hoiberg will not be there for Noskowiak's visit to Marquette West

Hoiberg's heart surgery a success; soon he'll be back to (virtual) work
Randy Peterson
8:03 p.m. CDT April 17, 2015


Fred Hoiberg made it through his second open heart surgery in 10 years Friday. Now it's all about recovery — and texting.

"Everything went very well," Dr. Rakesh Suri, a Mayo Clinic cardiothoracic surgeon, said in a statement released by Iowa State. "The operation was a success, and Mr. Hoiberg is in recovery and doing very well himself."

The five-season Iowa State men's basketball coach had aortic valve replacement surgery. The surgery, which started late Friday morning, was completed around 5 p.m.

Hoiberg could be hospitalized for up to a week. Once returning to Ames, he won't be visible outside his home for a while, but that won't stop him from communicating.

Recruiting, however, hasn't stopped.

"We're doing everything we'd normally be doing at this point in the year," Mann said.

They're looking for a ball-handling guard; Monte Morris is the team's only true point guard, although forward Georges Niang also has brought the ball up the floor.

Nick Noskowiak, a 6-foot-2 point guard from Sun Prairie, Wis., is scheduled to visit Iowa State next week. He has been released from the letter of intent he signed with Marquette.

The Cyclones would take a shooting big guy to replace Darien Williams, too. He was released from his scholarship two weeks ago.

"Recruits know the situation right now with Fred," Mann said. "They're informed."

Team needs, however, aren't urgent — four primary starters from last season's 25-9 team return.
