Everyone's favorite big doofy white Orangeman is going to be playing professional ball. No I'm not talking about Craig Forth... or Billy Celuck... or Elvir, or Reafsnyder... Christ we've had some guys that have fit that description.
No, Matty G is headed to Ireland to play professionally. He will play for the Cork County Neptune of the Irish Super League, the top league in the country. His professional salary, $425 a week. May the luck of the Irish be with ya Matty. He was one of those guys I wish could have seen more court time, but he gave us some solid minutes during his 5 years around town. If only he could have had more of a low presence and not desired to be a shooting guard...
In other news, the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center has had its groundbreaking ceremony. More on this later...

Apparently when I talk depressing about the Orangemen, good things happen. Two days ago, the boys shocked the hell out of the world with a 38-35 victory over #18/19 Louisville... IN KENTUCKY.
Andrew Robinson decided he was going to come out of his shell, throwing for 400+ and 4TDs, including two to Taj Smith. So much for 0-3, wanting to have Greg's head after a 0-4 start, now we can sing the praises of the coach who got us our first big win since beating BC in '04. Isn't it funny how sports work?
Vote for Taj for player of the week while you have some down time as well. (And yes, I realize the Taj picture is in the loss to Illinois).
Now on to Miami(OH), (who got housed by Colorado this week) to make it a 2 game streak.
