I'm drawing a blank on his name, but the CB from Skyview who started Ash's last year and early in Choate's first year before being benched late. He went to Utah before ultimately ending up at Southern Illinois.


There's the truth, and then there's what's reported in the papers.

Jason Goodman - TE for MSU his freshman year, got hurt, transferred to UW (or walked on, not sure) but got hurt even worse there and left the team before ever playing, finished his career playing basketball for UGF. That's quite the trajectory.

An MBA from St. Thomas is equivalent to one from Wharton or Harvard now days.
Source? Looking at admissions, their MBA program looks pretty average, and no major publications even place it in the top 50 from what I can tell. US news doesn't even have St. Thomas in top 100.

That is surprising. Locally it is a big deal. Most students try and get into St. Thomas first and if they fail they go to the U of Minnesota.

Don't let this distract you from the fact that the griz blew a 22-0 lead.

I saw that the other day and I thought it might be some sort of a glitch and now I see he/she just added an O instead of a zero. Sneaky.

O3 is Ozone, so to avoid confusion we can call the poster Ozone VIM.

How about Cosplay Frozone Vim - good, but not as good as the real thing

I'm not a fan of this or any other transfer like this. I know I'll get bashed on this site (not for the first or last time) but I feel that you are letting your teammates and fans and school down when you leave for your final year. I felt that way about Prukop and I feel that way about Wood. Go ahead and let me have it.

Yeah, you can look at it like that. Or you can look at it as he gave you everything he had for the years he was here and now he had the opportunity to live out his dream of playing at the highest level of college football. I’m sure the hardest part would be leaving your teammates behind.

Some people were really hard on Dakota. I still feel strongly they were wrong. He had a chance to get more exposure and play professional football. Dakota loved MSU and his teammates. He still has his good friend Manny Kalfel on his Twitter banner. Dakota also graduated and there was a coaching change. He was a class act.

The parallels with Wood are amazing. New Coach and graduated. Chance to get more exposure and play professionally. Good for him!

Wood graduated and his chosen post-graduate degree isn't offered at MSU. What was he supposed to do, put that off for at least a semester and take some joke classes this fall instead? I don't like the term student-athlete (it's just the academic Orwellian version of "player" or "athlete") but these guys do generally come here for school so once they're done with that part they can do whatever they want.

If you’re good, they’ll find you. There have been several D2 and D3 OL drafted fairly high recently.

I understand players wanting to go play at a higher level, it’s what competitive players will do. At the same time, it seems disrespectful to the school that gave you the chance to compete at the collegiate level. To me, it takes some of the amateurism out of the sport, and I just don’t like it.

With all that said, I hope it works out for the kid. Wish him no ill will. But when I go back and look at my favorite Bobcat players, guys like him and Prukop won’t be on the list. Nothing personal, just how I feel about it.
