Scent of a Skunkbear

– One month ago: one pass from a win over Southern Cal. Today: complaining about cheap shots from Navy. How the mediocre have fallen.

Last night’s Volunteer Prius crime spree has prompted a name change to college football’s most prestigious off-season award. EDSBS’ Orson Swindle has announced that . . .

The Fulmer Cup is now “The Tostitos Fulmer Cup, Sponsored By Lane Kiffin and Cash Money Records.”

Just a guess, but we think Phil Fulmer is more of a Doritos kind of guy.


– And finally . . .  CAT FIGHT!!

So, What next?

I can’t speak for the entire Skunkbears nation, but Regis K. Discohater says onwards, and upwards.

Stay tuned for more on the future of ND football.

Kevin Garnett: Skunkbear?

November 10, 2009 by

Here’s an interesting photo pulled from the SI Vault . . .

Wikipedia reveals that Garnett turned pro out of high school in 1995, the first prep player to jump to the pros since Darryl Dawkins and Bill Willoughby were drafted by Philly and Atlanta, respectively, in ’75.  The Big Ticket also played soccer in high school. A Mike Gundy visor to anyone with video of the 6’11” soccer player.

We also found this on Wikipedia . . .

“During his senior year, Kemp signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at the University of Kentucky. However, he left the team after he was caught pawning two gold chains that had been reported stolen by his teammate Sean Sutton.”

This tells us two things: 1. Sean Kemp technically did not jump straight to the NBA from high school and 2. Former Okie State coach Sean Sutton both owned and admitted to owning gold chains. We’re not sure if this somehow implicates Sutton in one of Kemp’s two hundred paternity suits.

Give Howie Schwab a sports journalism award. The ups. The downs. He takes the viewer on quite the journey of emotions. See if you catch the subtle change in his tone.

“Wow. What a terrible season in terms of disappointment…Wow…Wow”

Not to mention he wore his good sweatshirt for television. Keep up the good work, Mr. Energy.

If you haven’t checked it out, The Observer’s new web layout is professional. Of course, it resembles the NY Times compared to the South Bend Trib’s cluttered mess. We expected to see a Mike Floyd cover on today’s Irish Insider. Nope. Just Sergio Brown doing a back flip.

Aside from the dreadlocks and athletic ability, Sergio and I have quite a bit in common. Let’s just start with our taste in movies . . .

We’re headed toward Exit 77 in an hour. Here’s a few more ND football facts for your Friday afternoon . . .

Mike Ragone was one of the nation’s top high school heavyweight wrestlers, winning the prestigious Beast of the East tourney in 2005. Ragone and Minnesota state champ Trevor Laws could have had a few battles in the Irish-wrestling-room-that-no-longer-exists. (Thanks Title IX!)

Mike Anello and Chris Stewart were named Academic All-District. They might be the smallest and biggest guys on the team.

– On an unrelated note . . . CAT FIGHT!!!

Looking forward to another victory backflip from Sergio tomorrow afternoon. Go Irish.
