Oh, the lenghts they’ll go to

I direct your attention to this post on our QuickHits high school blog, authored by Hugh Kellenberger, to not only keep you updated on South sophomore Erik Fromm, who many think will pick up more major offers over the summer, but also to highlight the fact that Oregon State called the Fromm family on Christmas Eve.

Yes, I’m picturing it now. Bennie Seltzer hunched down low in a pew during the Christmas church service, dialing away.

RECRUIT: Hello?

SELTER: Hey, yeah. It’s Bennie. Come to IU!

RECRUIT: Is that “Oh Holy Night” in the background?

SELTZER: Yeah, you want to sing along? Or you can wait for the next one. Let me see . . . oh, right. “Gloria in Excelsis Deo.” That one is hard, all that up and down and the Latin and all that. But we can conquer it together. That’s our motto at IU. Hard work and togetherness builds championship teams!

RECRUIT: Amen.

  1. Sad story. It fits right in with the resolutions article for 2009. This is exactly what IU doesn’t want in the future.

  2. Looks like Hugh ruffled some Oregon State fans and they proclaimed their Gloria in Excelsis Deo. and they did not appear to be some “angels we have heard on high”.
