It really doesn't mean that the allegations aren't true.
I entitled this "Character witness for the defense". I offer no evidence or testimony on the facts and represented myself thusly.
If you are going to add a rejoinder or rebuttal, at least try for relevance to the premise.
It also doesn't prove he isn't a cannibal or a lover of the Bee Gees. That was lame.
Notice he didn't say, "RR has a nice smile THEREFORE he and everyone in his program have complied with all NCAA regulations."
Awesome. Thank you sir.
+1 to you sir
I didn't surrender, but my horse did. Great flick -- guess we licked 'em that time, eh Josie?
So there are good things to be said about RR?
Seriously good post. Something worth reading.
Thanks for the positive anecdotes.
I wish the Freep would do a positive, behind-the-scenes story on RR to balance their coverage a little bit.
I'd love to hear more about the football camp...I have a 9 year-old QB in the making and think he'd love it. If you have a minute, please tell me more....
The coaches were involved in every detail, coaching the techniques they are teaching the Wolverines. The other boys were great -- Evan said that every one of them was fun to be around. They stayed out at Bursley, took buses in to the football complex everyday. Evan roomed with a neat young fellow from Muskegon Heights -- they had a blast together.
Every minute of camp is open for us helicopter-type parents to hang around, take pictures and kibitz with anyone who will kibitz back. Some kids came from as far away as San Diego, others were Ann Arbor kids daycamping -- we came over from Chicago, and there were a number of others from our area.
The coaches were very engaging, talking with everyone around, and the coach's families were around as well, chatting and playing.
The topper for the boys, I think, was when they formed a two walls of boys from the locker room door out to midfield on the practice field and the team ran out between them, slapping hands, then the younger fellows joined the big guys in a huddle to sing The Victors. They did this at the end of each practice!
Oh, almost forgot -- the kids also came out of the tunnel up at the stadium and ran out to try to touch the M Club banner. Evan was so excited he couldn't get the words out fast enough to describe the week. He is still talking about it a couple months later.
Send your son, by all means. It's also a phenomenal value at $300 and something for Sunday through Tuesday as live-ins at the dorm. This was a great, great experience.
It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
That was very timely. Thank you. I needed to hear something positive like that to drown out all the garbage from the Freep.
