Christmas, Baltimore: 1959. A circle of childhood friends reunite for the upcoming wedding of one of them. Well, only if his fiancée passes a football trivia test. From the comfort of their all-night diner, the men, now in their early-twenties, confront the realities of adulthood: marriage, careers, money and the ever-mysterious opposite sex. But no matter where life takes them, they know they’re welcome back at the diner, the one place they’ll always belong.The tuner was initially Broadway-bound; this second engagement suggests Diner is once again aimed at the Great White Way.last_img read more

Cause marketing is the glass slipper to credit unions’ Cinderella

first_imgMillennials (myself included – yay for only being 21!) have become the darlings of the business world, captivating marketers and companies alike. We’re kind of like that 12-point buck every hunter dreams about, but can’t quite get. This, however, rarely stops a good hunter from trying. While I’ve never hunted, you tend to learn a thing or two when you live in Clemson for long enough, and I do know that you shouldn’t stop trying to attain something even though it seems impossible. Credit Unions shouldn’t quell their desire to gain our loyalty. So, how can you entice my coveted generation using traditional and digital marketing tactics? Cause marketing ­– plain and simple.Call millennials what you will – *cough*selfish*cough* – social responsibility has taken a front seat in our concerns and decision-making processes when it comes to purchasing. Credit Unions were MADE for cause marketing and social responsibility. It quite literally is your niche. The credit union tenants hit every basic point that drives the millennial interest. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Henson: OSU provides program defining game for UW

first_imgAs soon as the Badgers set down Paul Bunyan’s Axe in their locker roomand faced the media, the questions came.And no, most of us weren’t all that interested in the win overMinnesota.Is this team ready for Ohio State? What does this group need to do to beatthe No.1 team in the country? Was it hard not to look ahead to this game? Howwill you handle Ohio State’s dominant defensive front?These are the questions the players, coaches and fans have been waitingto have answered.Look, defeating the hated border-rivals is great. Handing the Gophersyet another loss in this one-sided rivalry is always a positive. The 41-23victory looks pretty nice on the stat sheet despite some sloppiness early on.But let’s make one thing very clear and get this whole perspective thingout of the way: Minnesota is really, really bad (sorry coach Brewster, but I’mgoing to go for two reallys). The Gophers lost to South Dakota and barely beatMiddle Tennessee State for their one and only win.So what can we take away from the Badgers’ fifth win? Not much.Sure, against Minnesota the offense started to click, the running gamewas stellar, there were no turnovers to speak of and Wisconsin crushed a teamthey usually fight tooth and nail with. The Badgers bounced back from a sluggishsecond quarter and put the game out of reach. All positives.But UW is about to face a much different beast in the Buckeyes.The offense will need to raise its level against a stingy defense andthe Badgers’ ‘D’ will need to slow down Terrelle Pryor, a true Heismancandidate, in their biggest game of the season. In fact, it’s arguably theirbiggest game of the last decade considering the talent and expectations on thisBadger team.Put it this way: This is a game that will ultimately define whereWisconsin stands as a program.ESPN’s College GameDay will be in town, the Buckeyes will bring their No.1 ranking, Camp Randall will be electric at night and all eyes in the collegefootball universe will be on the Badgers. The stage is set and win or lose, astatement will be made.But how exactly do we currently define the Badgers?Well, during the Bielema Era, there is not a single signature conferencewin to speak of. They are a team that suffers under high expectations and hasbeen consistently good but never elite. They’ll usually beat the average orbelow average teams, lose to the big boys and finish with a respectable recordand a trip to Florida.Now, to shatter that trend they have to win Saturday. Beat the No.1 teamin the country on your home field, take a giant leap forward as a program andcarry some serious momentum into Iowa City.Recent history tells us that’s not likely to happen (Bielema is 1-8against ranked Big Ten teams) and with the way the Badgers have played so farthis season, Ohio State looks far superior. In their only game against a rankedteam, the Badgers struggled on both sides of the ball and lost to MichiganState. The offense was stagnant and the defense was an embarrassment on thirddowns. Against Arizona State, the next best opponent to date, the UW offensewas inconsistent once again as they squeaked by with a one-point win.The hope is that the Badgers haven’t lived up to their potential thusfar, that we have yet to see them fire on all cylinders. They’ll need to findthat effort Saturday.“We’re going to have to play our best game up to this point,” seniorquarterback Scott Tolzien said. “You always hear that great players step up inbig games so we just have to come out and make plays.”Now, the Badgers have always kept things close with the Buckeyes, whohave dominated the conference over the last decade. Two years ago, Wisconsinsuffered a heartbreaking 3-point loss in freshman Terrelle Pryor’s breakthroughperformance. Last year, the Badgers led in almost every statistical categorybut costly turnovers extinguished any chance for a victory.“Every game we’ve been two, three or four plays away from winning,” saidJohn Clay of the recent meetings with Ohio State. “We just need to make sure wemake those plays when our name is called.”It’s those two or three plays that separate teams at this level, andit’s those plays Wisconsin has continuously failed to make against the BigTen’s top tier.OSU coach Jim Tressel has piled up big win after big win in the Big Ten.Bielema on the other hand is looking for that first breakthrough and he knowshow hard it is to come by, especially when Tressel and the Buckeyes are acrossthe field.“We’ve got a tremendous challenge. You talk about Ohio State, they’vebeen the premier (team) of our conference the last several years. They’ve beenable to win close games, especially against us. We have a tremendous amount ofrespect for what they do. Jim Tressel, in this business, is as good as itgets,” Bielema said. “I just really admire what they do. Until we’re able tosurpass that and get a ‘W,’ that’s what we have to live with.”Bielema’s exactly right. Until he gets that ‘W’ his team will face thesame questions and encounter the same doubters who point to his lack of successin these high stakes games.Lose to Ohio State and a road trip to Iowa the following week could endany and all hope for a Big Ten title. Win, however, and the Badgers thrustthemselves back into the front of the conference race.So Bielema, for once, after so many letdowns, show that this team candeliver.Prove that under your lead Wisconsin football can be redefined.Max is a seniormajoring in journalism.
