Uconn Player stabbed by Joe Paterno while talking about "TP miscast as a QB"

Submitted by uniqenam on October 19th, 2009 at 8:28 PM

Hi folks, I just wanted you to all know that a Uconn player was stabbed. And Joe Paterno could have come to Michigan. Also, how bout that piped in music? Finally, did you know Tom Brady threw for 5 TD's in a quarter? Wowzer.

EDIT: All info in this post was related to the OP by 6 completely reliable players at or recently graduated from the University of Michigan football program.

Would you rather take a fast ball to the dome-piece by Randy Johnson, in his prime,with no helmet? Or take a hit across the middle by Ed Reed while He is wearing fulll pads and you are stretched out for a ball and have no pass pads??

It's one thing to just joke around about a player but to laugh it up about the death of Jasper Howard is classless on every level. I bet that wouldn't be your headline if say D.Warren got stabbed to death would it? The posts on this site get worse and worse by the day.

A young man died. You really need to grow up and have some respect for his family, teammates and friends.

Obviously -

1) you don't have children.

2) have never had a person close to you die (or worse yet, get killed before their time)

3) don't understand things that are much more important than ALL of this

PLEASE, refrain from taking something like this lightly.

1) I am not (find stronger synonyms for "not" in a thesaurus, if you must) making light of his death.

2) I am not (find stronger synonyms for "not" in a thesaurus, if you must) treating the people affected by his tragic death poorly.

3) I am not (you get the idea)thinking that you can detect sarcasm.

This is a post that is about people double-posting(and triple, and so forth) way the F too much this week.

This post would have been funny if it didn't use the UCONN tragedy as part of the grouping. I know the intent was not there but it is still distasteful, especially this soon afterwards.

The JoePa to Michigan post was not announcing this as new news. The post states that this was well known. It was asking what Michigan would have been like had he come. Commenting on that would take some thought, apparently an activity of which you are incapable. Your post on the UConn situation, on the other hand, is beyond reprehensible. I cannot even fathom how someone would choose to make light of it.

I get the point, but your inclusion of the UConn player's death is utterly tasteless and beyond reprehensible, as physics guy put it best. It's not even a matter of "too soon"; just don't. Ever.

Yeah, really funny:

There are no words. It's just awful.

It was created to poke fun of other posters, yet it's content is far more embarrassing to Mgoblog.

I'd be furious if this incident took place at Michigan, and later read these posts on another college's blog.
