Central Wisconsin is crazy. Marshfield Merril Point Wausau.... all of them.

Youngest son went to Point - stories he shared were insane - made me wonder about the ones he didn’t share.

Had a friend from Wausau in college we would take steelhead fishing with us ... his idea of fun steelhead fishing was downing acid first. We had to corral him and sent him back to the cities.

In-laws up in Rhinelander area. A local got mad at his neighbors and burned his cabin down. Not the neighbors he was mad at - HIS OWN - then refused to rebuild it to spite them. Probably got insurance payout but was such a dump it would have only bought the guy a few more drunks.

I refer to that whole area as Wiscotucky except that would be unfair to Bluegrass Hillbilly’s everywhere.

"Hard work will beat talent, if talent doesn't work hard"
Doug Woog - 1990

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Overhead on SiouxSports.com - Why does every thread always turn into a "Gopher" thread? Is there a secret infatuation with them?

I'd say about 30 percent of the vehicles on any given winter morning don't have their rear windows scraped either. It pisses me off to no end.

When the NCAA said spring sport athletes could come back for another year I wondered what that would do for scholarships. If a Senior softball player comes back for the '21 season does that use up a scholarship that some first-year student would normally get?

One possible solution would be a 1-year exemption on the scholarship cap for those that would have graduated. However that doesn't answer how they'd address any roster size caps.

This article is vague in detail, but it sounds like the waiver included an exemption for scholarship caps.

The arguments make he makes do make sense and it sounded like at least some of the impacted senior are ready to move on anyway. Though I kind of wonder if he would feel the same if it was Fall sports (i.e. football) that was affected.

If Wisconsin-Madison is the state's most prestigious university and the state itself is known as The Dairy State, does that mean UW is Bovine University?

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the country you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.

I wouldn't say that's an "only in wi" thing... And the point of the thread is the stupid things they do not the few smart things. But I guess if they really still are the worst performing state in the country at the moment, ya they're idiots.

Minnesota’s cases are going up, and it’s not shocking when you see how the dakotas are increasing along with WI.

As a healthy person currently battling rare neurological issues with covid, let me tell you...you don’t want this.
