    Lol...Lavin was honestly a really nice guy and a pretty good recruiter early on. But he didn't pass the eye test. We had tons of talent but he couldn't develop it very well and even making the tourney a few times you didn't get a good feeling... Lol...Lavin was honestly a really nice guy and a pretty good recruiter early on. But he didn't pass the eye test. We had tons of talent but he couldn't develop it very well and even making the tourney a few times you didn't get a good feeling going in that we had a real shot unfortunately. Not sure yet if Mullin's the answer but one thing he's shown clearly is that he is getting maximum effort and passion out of these guys.

    And yes I'm one of (also one of my friends) Mullin's Maniacs. We originally started Storm the Garden but we were contacted by the MSG lawyers who were actually very nice about it but told us not to use "The Garden" on t-shirts or our Twitter handle (no I'm not medium, I'm large now guys!). We also probably made a mistake by tagging Brooks in one of those tweets that sent the #sjubb hashtag into nuclear mode, but anyone who saw it knew we only meant well telling him we hope he stays and he has a bright future here. There was no negativity. Anyways, looking back it was probably stupid which is why I took it down. Lesson learned. Still think the reaction was way over the top but whatever. All we are trying to do is rally fan support and do free giveaways which is only positive. We have been working closely with the Red Suit Guys to align, so stay posted. We are doing everything we can to help this program, especially the younger fans. We even spent something like $300 buying wigs at Party City to give out to students in the student section for free for the Nebraska game. That was with our own money.

    My point is that I believe we (and me specifically) are misunderstood. Trying to drown out the negativity and trolls who want to derail positive vibes on Twitter and focus on helping any way we can. Can we hold a funeral for Joe3 and bury him already guys? I didn't murder anyone. I was an idiot 5 years ago. Let's all get some beers sometime and laugh about it. Just want the best for this program and I've been very active rallying support behind the scenes.
