I was thinking more along the lines of "Coach foolishly saves fathers life, loses opportunity to bond with recruit."

ESPN really needs to do more than apologize for that. I know I've now made two jokes about how awful that was, but it was probably the worst thing I've ever read in sports journalism.

It was about a year and a half ago when there was the battle between his kids about what to do with his remains.  FOXSports.com was my main source of sports information until that day and I literally have not been back since.

Was it: "Possible starter found dead in Jacksonville, opening door for five-star signee Cyrus Kouandjio,"

I found that after a quick Google search, but I don't doubt the limitless classlessness that ESPN can exude and wondered if there was another instance you were referring to.

I guess that's one way to secure a commitment.  In all seriousness, it's good that these coaches reacted so quickly and used the training that I'm sure they've received.

works every time.

This is a great story.  I would have a hard time not commiting all else being equal.

SB is to Michigan what Women's volleyball is to Nebraska.  Well ... without the fanaticism that is. 

It's about time everyone became fanatic about this coach (that isn't already) she is just amaizing.  It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.

As you can tell by my avatar I am a volunteer firefighter, and also a first responder at work(first aid only) and so I have had several CPR and AED classes. I have often wondered what I would do if I were actually put in the position that required my knowledge. I can honestly say that I hope that I would respond that well. Way to go Coach.
