Chase Ross was the only MU player negative in the (+/-). I would say that is expected, but it didn't feel like that at all.

He felt like the spark early. I thought he was EXCELLENT. 30!!!!! Minutes.
VIOLENCE!

Mammoths were underappreciated creatures who demand our respect.

The fans were great. Poking the bear is never a good idea.

The volleyball team I coached that won nationals would beat you 25-21, 25-20 if you weren’t trying to show people up. Once you started talking trash, you were going to lose 25-12, 25-10.

That’s Kolek.

Amherst College (in my neighboring town) switched from the Lord Jeffs to the Mammoths several years ago (https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/19074028/amherst-college-replaces-lord-jeff-mascot-mammoths). Then, their D3 coach Dave Hixon was in the Hall of Fame class of 2023 (https://www.d3sports.com/notables/2023/08/dave-hixon-breaks-hall-of-fame-barrier)with our own Dwyane Wade.

I think you are on to something, Muggs.

There's a company in Dallas that is apparently on track to bring them back in 2027.  The main thought behind this is to protect our tundras and thwart climate change.  I was more thinking to have one as part of my security team.  :)

The crazy thing is that if he had gone 12-10-11, everybody would be talking about a triple-double, as if that's better than 32-6-9. Everybody would also be talking about a loss. We desperately needed our preseason All-American to step up big in that second half, and he did.

Woollys were/are an exemplary species.   They may be taught to expand their diet if you know what I mean.  Ergo, I would think very carefully before making absurd threats. 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣 🦣

Humans owe a tremendous debt to Woolly Mammoths.  It's been well documented and in lieu of respecting them we wiped out the entire species.  If they come back and snap at people out of vindictiveness it would be perfectly understandable.   🦣

We needed their pelts to make us stronger and develop as humans.

Look at it this way, the course that life took with the mammoths led us all to the here and now.

Its what is going to allow TyKo and Co to go medieval on teams throughout March.

The darkness introduced to Mammoths is a tactic still employed today.

You are correct but we took it way too far. 

We almost brought sea otters to extinction as well.  Very upsetting.

If you're gonna be the Mammoths you need to understand the responsibility.  Amherst clearly is not worthy.
