  • Ask Rodney Billups to add the new slogan, “Yuge win”  to the old standbys –  “the strength of the team is the team”, “room for improvement” and “playing fast”.
  • When Puck Swami donates 123 million to DU athletics, send him a personal, handwritten thank-you note.
  • Stop Ryan Peck ‘s plan to ditch the North Texas mascot Scrappy the Eagle and replace him with Denver Boone.
  • And always and forever be resolute and strong in the belief that CC sucks

*Extra Credit: In order to prepare for the Frozen Four in Chicago, DU’s team will hereafter be referred to as “da’ Pioneers”.

  1. My resolutions for the major DU teams:

    1. HOCKEY: No more scheduling of any hockey series around New Years. The team is often missing key guys at the world juniors or plays pretty flat after X-mas vacation or both. And get the goalscoring above 3GPG – this is where a better power play can really help in the stretch drive.

    2. Men’s BASKETBALL: Shoot 250 practice free throws per player per day, until each player retires from basketball. Should result in at least 3 extra wins in a year. And focus on reducing turnovers, too.

    3. Men’s LACROSSE: Figure out clears until they become automatic, tighten the defense, and don’t lose to lesser teams. Everything else is great.

    4. Men’s SOCCER: Without Dunk, Ford, Hanlin and Hamilton next year, Pios will need to plan out a new central defense, new backs moving forward, new ball-winning at mid-field and new set pieces. Plenty work to do, boys.

      1. MLS…He is an alumni of the Colorado Rapids Academy and he is viewed as a top talent. Not sure about the signing bonus but his starting salary would be 65-90K and $10-25k signing bonus based on MLS figures. You make a good point – especially if he wants to return to DU and complete his degree.
