  1. I remember watching "The Jacksons" when they were at Garfield Heights during tourney play, and they looked like men amongst boys, and today they seemed to come into that same sphere now at the NCAA level....
  2. Despite the FUBAR situation with outdoor track and field, the coaches, staff and athletes look ready to defend their MAC titles and maybe get back to the NCAAs, if last night was an indication. Season started at home with a dual meet vs. Central Michigan, and both our men and women won their sides. Early, early, early...but Lucy Bryan and Matt Keim in pole vault both looked very fit and cleared nice bars in their efforts. Nuh Andu was business like in winning the men's high jump. Marc Migliozi and Andre Golum-Godbot had good showings in the mile and 3,000 meters. MAC defending champ in the 60 Hurdles Patrick Kimball had an efficient win. But two youngsters really stood out in the sprints. Jasmyn Allen, a sophomore rarely heard from last year, had an eye-popping 60 hurdles to win by almost a second, and then almost doubled a few events later in the 60 dash, settling for 2nd. Then freshman Demetrius Jackson had a great win over teammate Amir Willis in the 60, and doubled by winning the 200 later. Dual at Can't State next weekend will give us more clues.....
  3. The excitement on campus has been, rightfully so, for Men's basketball, and there's a HUGE one on Saturday against Toledo at 2, followed by the Women at 4:30 in a doubleheader. If you've got nothing better to do earlier except maybe grab a lunch to avoid the high cost of concessions at the JAR, think about making it a triple-header and stop at Ocacek, less than 50 yards from the front door of the JAR and watch the final home meet of the season for our 6 time MAC Swimming and Diving Champions, on their Senior Day. 11:30 for Senior Day activities and noon for the meet, then when you get bored and can't take the humidity and the smell of chlorine, you can go cheer on the Big Guys. Should be a good one against Eastern Michigan, probalby the #2 team in the MAC. Since it's a dual meet it'll go fast. Last time to catch Jessica Bonezzi, Ellie Nebraska (if she's healthy), Jackie Pash, Mackenzie Vargas, Morgan Waggoner swim and Katie Applin dive.
  4. Something has been happening at the past few home games that kinda been making me a little irritated. I've slipped in to a down-low seat a few times and also go with some friends who know "well-heeled" athletic donors and alumnus, and there is a "nod-nod-wink-wink" discussion in the seats and with these folks, telling others that Don't worry, Keith's coming back, soon, and he's going to be the athletic director". Don't know where their info is coming from (other than maybe...), but it seems designed to undermine Groce and the current team's success. Plus it's disingenuous as well.
  5. Agree with NWA. There's basically one Director and an associate and then 3 GAs. And most of what they "Market" is to the students on campus, hardly any to the outside, unless I miss a lot because I'm not a facebook or twitter user. They are more involved in game-day activities and some promotions for upcoming games, but this is not your typical Sports Marketing group for a pro team. They do have interns as well, but once again everything seems to me to be focused on gameday experience rather than attracting general public attendance.
  6. Please don't take it the wrong way...it's just a little overwhelming is all, and as Capn said it's a long way off....I do like what your posting, just not in this thread....
  7. No offense to our new poster @Blackford, but maybe you should start a thread titled with this kid's name, and put the PR stuff there. Okay, we get it, he has talent....how many other school's sites are you posting this info on? We're not the ones making the scholly offers....
  8. I am in agreement with @TennZip here. I believe 2019 was a "one off". But I also believe that THIS Spring training and matches are critical to this happening. Need to bring everyone together and understand each other and each other's characteristics and style. Stop relying on their Academy's style and begin to build the ability from the past teams to play by instinct, not by thinking.
  9. Thanks for this...just catching up n the threads after a late night at the JAR, and was reading posts on LCJ possible transferring, and was thinking what Mark was posting at Walsh, saved me a search...
  10. Announced attendance 17,246....😜
