There is nothing better then March Madness and all the tournaments that take place in the next couple of weeks. From the high school sectional tournaments at Concordia to the NCAA Division III basketball, hockey and wrestling tournaments to the NCAA Division I basketball tournament and even high school hockey tournament – nothing exudes drama, heart break, unbridled joy and the sense of accomplishment like a game with everything on the line. We are in the midst of extremely loud, fan crazy games at Concordia. Whenever I see these games I always think of the movie “Hoosiers” and of all the great “One Shining Moment” videos that are shown at the end of the NCAA Division I men’s championship game.
Feel free to enjoy the first video post on the new Different Perspective! I love the emotion in all of the player’s faces. Whether it be high school basketball, college wrestling or DI basketball – the story is always on the faces of the players!
The saying goes that you are either moving forward or getting passed.
Hopefully this new addition to the Cobber Sports Information department will keep us moving forward and give fans the chance to find out more about the Cobber SID office.
It is a continuation of the old “Different Perspective” blog but it gives me more freedom and a lot more variety as to what I can post on the blog. I also wanted to continue the momentum we started with our Twitter page for the women’s basketball Road To The NCAA Tournament journal. The response I got from that one feature was unbelievable and I knew it was destined to get a bigger role in the SID office. This page will be an extension of the CobberSID Twitter page. Since each Twitter post is limited to only 140 characters, it is hard to fully convey events and news items that don’t get published to the wwww.gocobbers.com website.
This page will expand on the 140-character posts on Twitter and it will also allow the SID to rant about news items, features and daily doings in, and around, Cobber athletics.
I also promise that this page will be updated on a much more frequent basis as it is a lot easier to log on and post short updates that are then categorized and archived.
I hope you enjoy the new look for “The Different Perspective” and please feel free to post comments about feature ideas, questions you would like answered about Cobber athletics or any other thing that is on your mind about the world of Cobber athletics.
