I waited long enough, any comments on the "Orange Crush" on Wednesday night? I'm working GJV game, and every 3-4 minutes the table announces the Illinois - Wake Forest score, Illinois by 10; the Illinois by 15; then Illinois by 20; at a TO I just had to go to table and check if that was an accurate score...helper at table got on cell phone and checked, sure enough....

Glad I got that game on tape...

Well, to put in on officiating terms, Welmer, Hillary and Hightower were on the game, and it was one of the best officiated games I've ever seen.

Welmer deserves a final four assignment.

A little premature, don't you think?

Anything can happen in 4 months...why the guy could develop heart problems caused by splurging on fondue fergawdsake.

(Apologies to you and Mr Welmer, but this does make sense to someone out there. :) )

What is it?
 
I am a LSU fan and one of the talk shows the other day was talking about one of the bowl games a few years back that LSU and Illinois played in and they were wondering what an Illini was. Is that some kind of an animal?

It is short for "Illiniwek" who was the Native American tribe that used to live here in Central Illinois.

Redhouse Fri Dec 03, 2004 04:08pm

So is the mascot dressed as a native american. I can not remember what the mascot looks like

kenref1 Fri Dec 03, 2004 04:10pm

That is correct.

Okay, I was going to keep my mouth shut!
 
For the sixth consecutive year, the ACC won the Commissioner's Cup, the trophy which the winner of the Big 10/ACC Challenge receives.

For the second consecutive year, the ACC blewout the Little 10 7-2. Complete domination!'

The message has been furnished to you by the Atlantic Coast Conference. :D

Good one!

I agree with FredFan 7 about the officiating crew for the Illinois/Wake Forest game. You could not have asked for a more experienced crew to be assigned to this game.

Plus, the way the whole game was officiated from start to finish was outstanding. Yes, it is early to start naming Final Four officials, but this crew is off to a AWESOME start in the right direction.

kenref1 Fri Dec 03, 2004 04:42pm

I agree. I was proud to be an official after watching those three work. The knew what teams they had and let them play.
