Glad to see they will be adopting a memorial statement for Professor Kabamba. He was an excellent professor... so much energy and passion for teaching.

How does the kickoff boycott relate to any of the things you mentioned? You can boycott the kickoff and still be there the rest of the game to support the players. It will have zero affect on the money generated by ticket sales and concessions.

It's really quite simple: before posting think "what would RCMB do?" and then do the opposite.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Again, it's a pattern of||
Again, it's a pattern of issues from this coaching staff... e.g. multiple PR issues, poor clock managment, only 10 guys on the field for a punt, not seeing your QB take a headshot. These aren't simply X's/O's issues, but systematic breakdowns in attention to detail. Details that fall on the head coach as he's not simply a coach, but the CEO of the entire program.
Beyond the breakdown in communication with the neurologist (apparently the only one on the sideline who saw the hit) being too far away from the coaches, why are the trainers not tasked with watching all players on the field? Especially when you have an already innjured QB in there, why is no one watching behind the play? As for Hoke's Monday press conference, how could he go up to that podium so woefully underprepared to answer the questions he's paid to know are coming? Again, this is a massive trainwreck and the Shane Morris incident is one derailed car.

Hypothetically if we are 5-0 does this level of outrage occur? No... because the situation probably never occurs if we are a well run 5-0 program. Most certainly a competent program doesn't bungle the fallout as badly.
The Shane Morris incident/aftermath is simply one symptom of the underlying disease.

"Again, there was nothing clear that he had a concussion."
You've got it completely backwards. When a player takes a direct shot to the chin like Morris did, is slow to get up, can't remain balanced wihtout the help of his linemen, keeps closing his eyes when looking to the coaches for the next play... the responsibility is to prove he isn't concussed, not wait for conclusive signs that he is.

Just to piggyback on this, my wife is a pediatric ICU nurse at one of the top cancer hospitals. No other way to put it, pediatric cancer is as bad as it gets regardless of the parents finances/insurance. However, it's that much more devastating for those without the means.
Having medical debt through the roof and being unable to take time off to be by your childs side, or to put gas in the tank to get to the hospital and pay parking. That's the reality for many parents of kids with cancer. So I agree with the above poster... make a donation to one of the many cancer support charities or to a cancer treament hospital/center. They are able to do amazing things to help all families going through it.

Not to get political, but it's the "support the troops" mantra. How do you deflect negative attention of awful leadership? Build a strawman whereby you equate critism to being unsupportive of a fragile group.

|14 weeks 2 days ago||Absolutely correct, Seth||
Absolutely correct, Seth Jones is another Dallas product. The Dallas youth hockey is even stronger than Phoenix thanks to having a team for longer and winning a Stanley Cup.
For comparisons sake, Houston is a similar climate with even more people than Dallas. They have a longer hockey history thanks to the WHA Aeros and Gordie... Also due to the oil industry, they have a large amount of transplants from Western Canada. What they don't have is an NHL team (or any pro hockey team after the AHL Aeros left before last season.). As a result, their youth hockey numbers are probably one-fifth of the numbers in Dallas.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Easy answer...||
National Hockey League. A nearby NHL team is the reason why Phoenix has on of the largest and best youth hockey programs in the southwest... which leads into ASU having a great club hockey program.
Here's a Daily article on Moffatt and the rise of youth hockey in Phoneix thanks to the NHL. http://www.michigandaily.com/sports/moffatt

Ordered mine yesterday as soon as I got the email. Didn't have the $'s for the full custom, so went with the 3-letter, 2 number option and nabbed "FAB 05"... I also graduated in '05 so it works two ways.

do they normally let the guy try and pitch through the control issues, or is it concievable to shut him down midseason for a couple of weeks to see if it isn't fatigue related?

Was Michigan in on his recruitment or was he one of those kids that committed very early before Michigan even announced its Div 1 plans?

Beach volleyball? I sure hope not. With the number of kids (and girls) playing ice hockey in Michigan, the fact that there isn't a single division 1 women's hockey program in the state is darn near criminal.

Wife is a nurse for a big cancer center in a pediatric unit and it's brutal. She comes home with shit just about every shift that just about brings me to tears, I don't know how her and the other nurses keep it together and do that job. I listen to her stories but don't say anything, because what can you say?
Her case last week was a young teen boy who beat cancer once but it's back and it's everywhere. It's a matter of when not if... They can't give him enough meds to control the pain and his parents won't sign the dnr papers. Listening to her tell about him begging his parents to kill him just rips your heart out.
Seriously, fuck cancer! Wouldn't wish that shit on my worst enemy. My best to any and everyone going through it.

In TX over the past decade. My 10 year old picked up the sport last year. One thing that helps down here is that lacrosse season matches up well with football season. You're starting to see some Dallas and Houston area high schools pop up on national rankings... and it seems like the number of TX kids going to D1 schools increases each year. You have a lot of former D1 players who have moved here for jobs... thus a deep coaching talent pool for the youth levels. I don't see the growth of the sport slowing down anytime soon. I don't think it's a matter of IF UTexas goes D1, but rather WHEN.

|27 weeks 5 days ago||on our 2nd Chyrsler T&C...||
Engine on our first one went out around 70k miles and we had bought it used so it was not under warranty. Other than that, we've been happy. My parents have owned Plymouth/Chrysler minivans since the first ones came out in the mid 80's and have had relatively few issues. Gas mileage on the latest generation is much improved.
That being said, I know a few families that swear by the Honda Odyssey... have had zero issues. Personally I'd prefer a new dodge/Chrysler with warranty to a Honda with 60k+ miles.
