Jimmy V Classic

5 posts in this topic

Lots of good college basketball games coming up this week, gearing up for the Jimmy V classic.

I know this isn't really basketball related, but I think his ESPY speech is a great one. A great speech really motivates and moves people, makes them laugh and makes them cry. This speech does just that.

There wasn't any discussion about the ACC/Big 11 tourney, but I've been meaning to ask.....

Is the Big 11 ever going to be competitive in the ACC/Big 11 tourney? I think the ACC might as well pull out and start it up with the Big East instead. The style of the Big 11 can't hold up to the playing style of the ACC. Never has, never will. Seems like the point has been made after a decade or so of whoopin's. grin

It's about money.... just a pinch more playing the Big Ten teams.

Yeah, probably about the buck. The ACC top teams dominate the top Big Ten teams and then it's kind of a toss up between the mediocre and lesser teams. They'll probably keep going with it, for like you guys say, the dollar bills, but the ACC would be better off playing the Big East or Pac 10. Maybe matchup the Big Ten and Big XII?

Even in years when the Big Ten is strong they lose the challenge. The best basketball is consistently played in the ACC.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
