I had the privilege of seeing her live at the Fillmore in San Francisco. I was absolutely blown away by that experience. At the time, my brother lived there, (actually Danville) so I was fortunate to be in the area at the time she was there. One of the things that stood out was some of the Hell's Angels being there and an environment I had never in my life, before or after, experienced. Truly amazing.
IMHO, for me, "The Day the Music Died," was when he died, not Buddy Holly. A couple of weeks after Hendrix died, Janis Joplin followed suit. I used to wonder if her's was more suicide than od. They were very close. Loved her music also. Every time someone brings them up, I still wonder about 'what could've been' if those two would've survived that era. Within a year, another great, Jim Morrison of the Doors also od'd. What a waste of talent. Damn drugs!
YOU. CAN. DO. THIS! Like you said, you trained too long and too hard not to. Best of luck to you, and NEVER say die! (My high school motto)
My mother, who was 100% blue blood Italian, just rolled over in her grave.
This is exactly why I wonder what the other coaches thought of him that he ended up at Minny. I thought for sure Herman or Fickell would have grabbed him.
I suppose Warinner felt in the final analysis that it was better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.
Great saying. I'm going to use that someday, just don't know when.
I felt sorry for the kid. He seemed very sincere. I hated when he stomped on our logo, but it's a rivalry and one thing he has is passion.
I wish I could upvote this a thousand times, but even one would do
I believe he was in a counselling and a community service program for a long time. XMRadio had a long discussion on this about two weeks ago. He has done everything the university required of him to get back on the playing field, including talking to women in domestic violence shelters and many volunteer hours. He had the option of leaving Oklahoma and chose to stay and try and get help. If all they said was true, I have a lot of respect for him for not running off to another school and instead stuck it out. Hopefully he has been rehabilitated. It sure sounded like it on the radio. He didn't talk but someone close to the program did.
Absolutely! You hit the nail on the head. He needs to surround himself with people he can trust and coaches he doesn't have to micromanage. That's the key to his not falling into bad habits again.
Well, his comment was taken out of context. We have no idea what prompted him to say what he did, so I will give him a pass, especially if it motivates the Silver Bullets
If I recall correctly, wasn't there a huge question mark on Roby's injury? Was that rumor discredited? Inquiring minds want to know.
No need to be nervous. You'd never ask a question you didn't already know the answer to, right?
Especially around other people.
Congratulations and a tip of the glass to you!
Looks to me the mob mentality not only affected what happened at the party, but also permeated the whole team.
Didn't notice that. Thanks for pointing that out.
I hope this puts an end to all the rubbish I've been reading on here defending those....those...I can't even think of a word to describe these poor excuses of human beings. I better stop here before I get banned from this site
