Really enjoy these video chats. It is most interesting to hear the behind the scenes stories that the players share like Smiley Five and coach going off on Phil at Drake whereas Phil went off on Drake for the come from behind W. Good stuff.

Part 2. Yak really has an amazing story. Goes from almost not coming to ISU at all, to a manager on the most successful Redbird team in a long time, to being a high school teacher and coach, to a D1 coach, to leading the defensive efforts of a Final 4 team, to now D1 head coach. It's unlikely any of that happens if he doesn't come to ISU. Muller giving him a chance at the D1 level changed his life forever. Look forward to getting UIC on the schedule soon.

My takeaway was what a sick, disgusting person Bob Harstad must have been to not shower or brush his teeth all season.
Man if only we had known that, sitting in the front row on the baseline. Harstad went down in RA with an ankle injury and he was struggling to get up. The football guys close to me started chanting "WALK IT OFF, PUSSY, WALK IT OFF" (Clap Clap) and pretty soon the entire student section and half the arena was chanting it. I've never seen anything more cruel and funny at the same time. Couldn't believe I stooped that low yet I was really happy with myself. Strange world down in Redbird Arena. And now I'm thinking if only I had been a student in Horton! You freakers were CRAZY.
