When I played it was dorm food until you moved out, then it was hamburger helper in your apartment. There wasn't even money for Gatorade on my team.......

Screw the Nutrition Center. I say they put the team on the Huskie Stadium Hot Dog Diet. If a player needs to gain weight, feed him the hot dogs. If a player needs to lose weight, just tell him they ran out of hot dogs (no one will question this).

Question...did you have to move out or did you (and other players) do that on your own? Also were you on scholarship?

You had to live in the dorms your freshman year but could move out afterwards. Depending on how your scholarship was set up some found it financially advantageous (or more safe in the sense that they where not ready to "adult" and manage the realities of living on their own) to stay in the dorms for their SO year as well. But almost everyone ended up in off-campus housing by their junior year. As is probably today, it was sorta lame to live in the dorms as you got older.

I was on scholarship but not for room and board and that meant I had to pay for my own food, hence the hamburger helper comment. I can remember literally eating five hamburgers a sitting and who knows how many regular Cokes when on the dorm meal plan, and sometimes spending two hours at the KFC buffet in Sycamore on Sundays trying to replace calories in the most cost efficient manner after a long week of training.

When I moved out of the dorms I got a job at the Dill Pickle deli (remember that place?) for cheap lunches and worked at Stanleys so I could get a drink and a reduced price pizza from World Famous just about anytime.

I cannot stress how little the idea of "nutrition" was in place in the mid to late 90's. Mind you, I was never hungry. Just always needing to be more creative in finding the amount of food the body needed. Obviously this is the completely wrong way to replace calories after training compared to what we know now about the importance of nutrition.

I'm surprised they haven't opened this or pushed for donations on this as it is something that could get done quickly IMO.

The Jungle was always good for a late night fight. Half the time it was the bouncers.

RE: Updated & Changes to Athletic Master Plan Projects
As much as I would love to reminisce all day about the Jungle's 50 cent drafts and lively Pike bouncers, I'm going to steer things back towards the original subject matter of this discussion...

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY TANGIBLE INFO ON ANY PROGRESS WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE MASTER PLAN?

I was the the HOF in Canton Ohio last week, and drove through Akron's campus on the way back to the airport. Their football stadium looked awesome. We need something similar if we want to stay in the the premier G5 program discussion.
