BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- In the Roaring ‘20s song “Chicago” the Windy City is referred to as “that toddlin’ town.” What the heck does that mean? I had to hit the Googles to find out and it seems that no one is really quite sure, but the consensus seems to be that it probably refers to a dance that was popular at that time.

You can find the various theories here:

Regardless, the Flyers will be toddlin’ into the home turf of Kendall Pollard, Kyle Davis and Josh Cunningham at 7:00 PM Dayton time on Saturday as they take on Northwestern Wildcats at the United Center. Not only is it a homecoming for these three Dayton players but represents a chance for one of the largest concentrations of UD alums to represent and turn what is supposed to be a neutral court into a veritable UD Arena West. “From the Swamp” will be there.

Should be a good one!

-- Could swear that I heard Larry and Bucky mention that UD was #7 in the nation in steals during a recent game. Don’t know where they got that stat because the Flyers are currently #42:
