Then those are the throwback jerseys we should be wearing... what is the staff thinking?Ah, yeah....but I think we were very good in the early 1900s as well. Ralph Jones who coached from 1912 to 1920 had a .674 B1G winning % and .714 overall winning % with 2 B1G titles and a National Championship.
Yes, they had a weight room, but all of the lifting hampered their athleticism and free throw shooting.Was Fletch here then? Those guys look like they had been hitting the weights. But did they even have a weight room back then. Probably practiced with a medicine ball.
The other thing that happens is that American schools often give a test to foreign students when they first enroll in the US, and kids are often set-back a year (or even two sometimes) solely based on their skills in understanding, reading, writing and speaking in English. I'm a grandpa to a couple of kids of foreign origin, and when they arrived here for schooling, this happened to them. Regardless of the ESL classes that they have taken, their skills in being able to understand the teacher, and respond to questions is often not as advanced as the average American kid... I don't know that this happened to Giorgi, I'm just saying that this happens, and it happens alot....Right, but that's like the very very back end of the spectrum. The polar opposite of my August 31st. Giorgi was born in November so that would put him at slightly older than than the average Sophomore. Not that important of a point though haha.
Simply amazing young man and family, next time you want to whine about your lot in life, watch this over and over again....or better yet refrain from betting your imaginary beach houses...I will always root for Giorgi B, our next Augie, our first Giorgi, love watching this kid play, smile.laugh and represent our school...the way your supposed to do it..
