100 People And Events That Shaped The First Year Of TNB (30-21)
Posted by Ryne E. Hancock on June 26, 2008
30-“Notre Dame’s Lost Season” (After contending for a National Championship for most of 2006 behind the arm of Brady Quinn, the Fighting Irish fell way back to earth as they finished 3-9 and lost to the Naval Academy for the first time in 44 years.)
29-“Shock The World, Kid” (While Crichton’s basketball season ended prematurely in Nashville on March 6th against Trevecca, the softball ladies from North Highland Park made a run to the third day of the tournament in only their second year of varsity competition, where they would lose to Union University 10-1.)
28-“Tigers Bounce Back” (After doing my share of ripping the Memphis Tigers football team, they suddenly righted the ship and bounced back to a 6-2 mark in C-USA play and a 7-6 record overall as well as a berth to the New Orleans Bowl.)
27-Gamecock Sports Forum (One thing we love to do here at TNB is make friends. And apparently with Steven and the gang at GSF, as they’ve been our best friends on the Internet. And I say that in a non-homosexual way.)
26-“Some Big Sisters Have It Better Than Others” (On March 9th, my big sister Renetria turned 25 and on that same day, Drake University won the Missouri Valley Conference and the right to be in the Big Dance for the first time in 38 years.)
25-C. Trent Rosencrans (The former Cincinnati Post beat writer for the Reds, he had a profound impact on the style of writing we present to the masses each day by entertaining Reds and even Cardinal fans like myself.)
24-“The Basketball Sisterhood” (In Feburary, I wrote a column on Crichton’s biggest female basketball fans that got a lot of great feedback around campus. Too bad this was the only picture in which all of the members was in.)
23-Michael “The Great One” Sapp (Another ardent supporter of the website from North Highland Park, he is also one of the few Laker fans I can actually tolerate.)
22-“Whuh’s My Tickets?” (Bruce Pearl complained on the eve of the Tennessee-Memphis game that he couldn’t get any tickets. Obviously trying to get your freak on with Erin Andrews was the only thing that you could get out of playing the Tigers.)
21-“The Scott Rolen Era Ends In St. Louis” (After six seasons, Scott Rolen finally gets his wish and leaves town for Toronto where as I write this, is in last place in the AL East and is looking to hire Q or Sarah as their new manager for 2009.)
My time’s up. RIP George Carlin.
