Bud Ekins passed away over the weekend. You might remember him as the guy who jumped the Triumph motorcycle over the fence in the Steve McQueen movie "The Great Escape". One of the best WWII movies out there (along with "Kelly's Heros")

Now he and Steve McQueen can run together for eternity.

Bud also drove the green mustang in Bullett. Because he looked so much like McQueen they used him a lot for Steve's movies.

He also did stunts for the bluse brothers, 1941, Animal House (and yes he rode D-day's chopper though the frat house), electraglide in blue, then came bronson, and the love bug, among others.

Despite his relativle pop culture obsucrity, an era comes to an end with his passing.


And wisconsin football's death was not nearly as savage or brutal as the death suffered by LSU at the hands of kentucky. The last time Kentucky beat a no.1 team was 1964 fer chrissakes.

Tex - oh, that is just kicking a guy in the balls! I am still and always will be a Wisconsin Badger! Too bad Pen State has never strung a series of wins together even approaching 14. When was the last time the Nitpick Lions made it to the Rose bowl...1995? Oh, next time Joe shows up at Camp Randal...we are going to take out his other knee! The "Badgers" that played on Saturrday were missing three key players due to injuries... and very one dimensional. So, Penn State should not be too happy. By the way, what is a Nittany? I am quite sure a Badger could kill a Nittany in any fight... For those of you who are not College football fans, Penn State = Clubman bars and Wisconsin = clip ons!

Look!, even smart people agree that Penn State is bad!

joe pa has been coaching since 1966......

798 division 1-a coaches have been fired, quit, or retired in that same time.....

he has the most wins of any coach in division 1-a......With Penn State's latest win over Wisconsin, Joe Paterno has a career record of 368 wins, 123 losses, and 3 ties.

coach bret bulemia (wrech....wrech....vomit....speuuuw....) can't even come close in three lifetimes, no matter how much alverez massages his balls!

the gauntlet has been thrown!

wisconsin blows man yogurt all over bucky the hedgehog!

psu rules!

Tex - you got to admit that the picture is pretty funny! Anyway, Bret Bielema has one of the best rookie coach starting records in all of sports! He has only lost 3 games since he started as head coach last year! So, when Bret is the same age as Joe P., what is that 100 years old, I am sure his record will be better. Bret may actually decide to progress his career and go on to coach professional ball, something Joe P. seems have been too affraid to do! Peace brother!

I know this is an old but I've been gone for a week and I'm still catching up.

Unless a stupid Badger could kill a mountain . . .

PS I don't give a crap about college fooseball, and I hate Penn State (mostly because so many people love it). I just like to fan the flames.

I think it would be frickin great to see a mountain lion fight a badger. If you go on youtube and search for VS. you will get all kinds of great animal fights. The best is lions vs crocodile vs buffalo. Oh yeah, RIP Bud, I got into bikes after seeing The Great Escape when I was a kid.
PS. The only good things that have ever come out of wisconsin are cheese and AMC. PSU kicks ass!

Bucky is no simple Badger...he also knows how to party. How many times did Playboy name PSU as party school of the year...hummmm?

The picture of that other "badger" needs to be in a different thread about doing unacceptable things to dogs at pit bike days in Maine.

Oh, the one thing I do know is a Nitwitnity lion can beat a Buckeye if they fought. I do hope PSU beats Ohio State. Booooo Buckeyes!
