    I read the Carlson article over the weekend, and I am not kidding that I actually expected some sort of recognition for Kyle near the end of the story or for Kyle to tell us that you two jointly interviewed Harris over the phone. Keep up the good work, Kyle!

    Please state teams, no let downs vs TCU(OU) and TTU(OSU) this week. Saturday will be an epic battle in GIA regardless, but no let downs!! Just wonder if the Poke fans will show up to see it? If the arena isn’t pretty dang packed Saturday I think it’s safe to say the fans will stay away until the Ford era has come to an end.

    I can personally attest to the basketball team being close off the court. You never just see just one of them walking around campus, its always 3 or 4 of them. It seems like Markell, Cobbins, Murphy, and LeBryan are all BFFs. Never seen without each other it seems like.

    The Grammy’s didn’t like JT & Jay-Z enough to let it stay on YouTube.

      The Levon tribute was waaaaaay better than jt/jay-z
