You go Ra'Shede; can't wait to watch your 15 sacks this season.

I'll bet Hageman wishes he was playing on a better team with a real D1 coach.

We need to make an immediate demand that Hageman play the 4 spot for the Gopher basketball team. A team of Eliason, Hageman, Buggs and the two Hollins would likely take the title in the rough and tumble Big Ten and give Hageman the press he needs to be a top NFL draft choice.

The Wolves get beat in most games by the other team's bigs. Ridnoir and Barea are good shooters. Point guards Rubio and Schved are terrible shooters so replacing Ridnoir and/or Barea with a college 2 spot shooter makes no sense. Barea and Ridnoir could score 30 points in a college game any time they would want to. Trey Burke could make sense if you want to improve the teams shooting at the point guard. Sid, remember your hero Saunders traded the no. 5 pick to the Wolves for two less than average NBA players who are no longer with the Washington team, so, he may not make the right moves with the Wolves. The Wolves need a defensive minded center, like Earvin Johnson who played on the Wolves when they won the conference title with Garnett playing the 4 spot. So, all this talk about a shooting guard is not productive and a cue that the Wolves are headed in the wrong direction again.

Keep up the great work Ra'shede! Looking forward to seeing you play this year at the bank!

I have some advice for NFL scouts (if they don't already do this) looking for a "bargain" draft pick. Ask somebody like Hageman "who on the other Big Ten rosters was able to block you the most effectively?". Maybe you would then be able to "steal" some D tackle from Purdue that wasn't on anyone's radar. Especially if you asked other top ranked D ends in the league and the same name kept popping up even though he wasn't considered a "specimen".

What? The guy is a senior who hasn't so much as sniffed 3rd team all conference! Rah! Rah!
