My stats prof used to teach at Carleton and the first day she said that U of O had some non-existant feud with Carleton(non existant on their end). I never really understood that, alot of Carletons students seem that have small man syndrome when it comes to the U of O.

If you sent in your pool results, you'd automatically make it into Carleton.



....trust me folks...that's quite the insult...

I CAN'T wait to finish!
What is genomics? Is that basically just learning about proteins? I mean I am in genetics at UofT and its basically the same as biochemistry (ie: proteins general, transcription regulators, fundemental pathways like replication, some lab genetics etc). And is most of the research there on the fundementals (like how replication works, gene regulation works) or is it more practical stuff?

Oh yeah, and good move by Ottawa to get Morrison .

Genomics is a fancy word for genetics... Studying the genome. Everything you mentionned.

He would have to be claimed on waivers when being called up.

Yes. Thompson was at $520K or something like that, and Morrison is league min. $450K. So on top of giving us a better backup it also saves money!

I was just thinking about why we didn't grab Conklin instead of Morrison and realized the reason for that was probably money related too. Conklin makes $1.5M . Otherwise I would have rather brought him over.

Have you seen Conklin play this season? Besides a few decent ones this past week, no, you wouldn't have rather had Conklin.

I took "biochemistry" and "political studies" at Queen's.
(did an extra year, yay victory lap)

Not political science mind you. If you say the word "science" around our Politics faculty they start droning on about the shortcomings of the Scientific Method etc.

Ouch.

I did my undergrad at Carleton. I would like to argue that the department you were in varied in quality. I did Public Admin. and that degree is well recognized. Journalism students didn't suffer any stigma either.

I'm doing my Masters at Western. Good school. Bad city for anyone between the ages of 25 and 65.

Currently doing a co-op position for my Masters at U of Windsor (haven't seen this institution mentioned yet). School-wise, it's much like Carleton but at least the city is better than London.

That hurts. I blame drafting Biron and DiPietro as my goalies.

That's really not true, the feud used to mean a lot more when there was a Panda game. My dad wewnt to U of O and had many good stories of the drunken good times at Frank Clair during those battles.

Then Carleton cancelled their painfully bad football program and killed our drunken fun

Still, it's mainly a feud for 1 week a year... "yell loud swear words!"

I can't imagine how frosh is even remotely fun without booze.

Ah, fond memories of launching water balloons across the field using 20 feet of surgical tubing attached to a funnel and the tunnels in the stands.

Oh, to be young and irresponsible.

Reminds me of our best panda game effort in the late seventies in my 2nd year Engineering at CU...We got a few fire extinguishers and made "creative use" of papier mache to give them an appereance resembling a certain male appendage...and snuck out along the sidelines in front of the "zoo" crowd who were pointing and laughing...laughing that is until the we released the extinguishers... had to drop the extinguishers and out run a few security guards.....aw the good old days.
