Stadium Work Progressing

Hillsdale's Muddy Waters Stadium is taking on a new look as crews continue to install the new Prograss artificial playing surface. With much of the work completed, the field is reminiscent of most recent glory days of Hillsdale football that include the 1985 national championship and the Chargers' last league title in 1992.

Thanks to Andy Brown, the WCSR voice of the Chargers, for submitting these pictures.

Potter's Wheel-The Podcast

While you are waiting for the return of Charger football, check out my audio book I am producing at Potter's Wheel-The Podcast.

Each week or so, I will be adding a new chapter from my Las Vegas based novel and including some commentary on the story.

In the book, a world class hacker name Potter ropes 4 unassuming small-town Michigan teachers into his scam to steal millions from Sin City.

Hillsdale College makes a cameo appearance mid-way through the story when two Sigma Chi's who are hitting on girls in the Ethan Allen Room learn their dad and uncle Bill Parsons (Hillsdale 1972) is accused of taking down the Excalibur. (He must be working on funding the Gradute School of Statesmanship...or the old folks home.)

Chapters 1-3 are online now for you to download and carry on your iPod or other .mp3 player.

Head Coach Keith Otterbein said he chose the shirts to serve as both an embarrassment and a motivation to the team.

“I want [the team] to be a little embarrassed by the fact that we've been 4-7 for three years because we should've been better than that,” Otterbein said.

“We're embarrassed [by the shirts] but we're also inspired by them because we don't want another 4-7 on the bottom,” said junior co-captain Chad Gurica.

After 75 meetings with individual players at the close of last season, Otterbein said one thing became clear: Training during the off-season needed to be tougher.
