Lt. Col.

from M*A*S*H fame...although I thought his plane had spun into the Sea of Japan, with no one surviving.
when you click the embedded link it says The selected recruit was not found.

I almost shed a tear...
Creepy, lol.

i recently was perusing the all-american list in a world where i had no chance of seeing one of my dudes... and right there... BAM.... a player with oldaveys real life name is National Player of the Year!   that was kinda cool. woulda been even cooler if he was playing for me... but still.

I wonder if that was a total conincidence or if they use the user database to create some player names?

how common is your name dave? I think it uses census data or something - I dunno - I wonder what the names database is now that you mention it...

id put it at semi-common.   not jones or smith or johnson by any means,  but not Shellenberger either.

so i just looked this up (on the internet, so i know it must be 100% accurate):
there are fewer than 100 people in the united states with my first name and last name... if you use "Dave"   as i usually do.  (I wonder if they actually have a given name of "Dave"?  i guess maybe they do... but mine like most dave's i suppose,.. is "david"

 if you use "David"  there are more like 2,000 people.  

so,  i might not have been quite so surprised to see David.... but Dave?  yeah, kinda surprised.  and again,i dont think you see Dave very often as an official given name,  so it just seemed like a pretty big coincidence to see it in connection with my last name.

Those in D2 had the opportunity to nab rapper "Silas Black" in the recently completed recruiting session in Naismith. He was still available late...not sure if anyone grabbed him last-minute or not.

The Wang names are always funny...Young Wang was my personal favorite. The guy created so much discussion on our GLV board in Phelan, it was great. So sad that he's gone. I always liked Young Wang, and I've missed Young Wang the past few seasons.
