I played against Grinnell in football, back in 1970. It was our homecoming (Beloit College). Before the game our cheerleaders were blowing up helium balloons. A Grinnell player and I were talking about it, and I took a "hit" of helium, and we had a good laugh at my Donald Duck. Then, to make matters more funner, when the game started I (a right tackle) found that the Grinnell player was my head-up opponent. All game long I kept trying to imitate my Donald Duck at the start of each play, we were laughing so hard we could hardly hit each other. It was a hoot, until I missed a block on a two point conversion on the last play of the game and we lost 22-21. I was not a particularly good right tackle so they made me a fullback. We sucked bad - the last game I played we lost to Coe 82-0. But it was at least fun to go to a college with good academics.

PowerSlacker: We're in a dumb Fark thread talking about it and the guy got a whole lot of free publicity for being the best cherrypicker in the history of basketball.

The highlights on ESPN shows him knocking down three pointers left and right on people's faces. Catch and shoot, dribble and shoot, etc. and also going to the paint and pulling up for short jump shots, etc.

Give credit where credit is due... 138 points is 138 points. The kid has a nice jump shot. 

/ He might be a bench warmer at a D-I school but still, 138 pts in a D-III game is very impressive... in fact, it is a record...

PowerSlacker: The Muthaship: PowerSlacker: Deadspin did an awesome job of exposing this sham of a record:

They did an excellent job of sounding like whiny b*tches, which is no surprise as that's what they are.

Grinnell doesn't play the way we think they should! Don't like them! Jesus, what a biatch Barry Petchesky is....

They came up with a way to play that has been successful for them. It's not totally original, but it is innovative. I'd like to be on that team, even if I wasn't getting 80% of the reps.

I have no problem with Grinnell's style. I have a problem with them counting stats against a NCCAA team as legitimate.

Who takes any of these record seriously?

The fix was definitely in. 2 little schools that wanted some media attention. Not the worst thing in the world, though.
