  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

I hope his wanting to transfer had nothing to do with academics or not being coachable. We might not like Auburn or its staff, but I trust our staff will do a thorough background check before using a scholarship. We don't need their playbook anyway

I hope the best for him, but all of these issues surfaced after his father passed... Not a small thing to get over

There was a radio segment on NPR this past year on the growing rates of suicide. Although the internet can be blamed a a contributor to this increase, they went deeper to see what other factors may be fueling this not-quite-epidemic-yet trend. One of the biggest finds they had was that in the western culture, we champion individualism and independence, as it is also part of being unique, being original, not being a lemming, etc. However, it comes with consequences as our push to have children grow up to be so independent is strongly correlated with finding it harder to associate with others, feeling cursed with loneliness, and leading to a slippery slope toward suicide. They did not go as far to say that independence is the biggest or sole reason for suicide, but there was a strong trend/correlation toward this end. That said, of course there are high suicide rates in eastern cultures, too, but those tend to be more from external pressures due to herd-is-always-right vs western culture modernist mindset and philosophy. Interesting study and worth consideration, but for the short-term, it goes without saying that suicide is a choice but certainly not always the best one so CALL THE NUMBER AND GET HELP. It's ok to have people to depend on.

DJ, you are more metrosexual than I thought but ain't nuttin' wrong with that. Whitney has clearly been a good influence for you with all that lotioning. Twitter is sadly a ship showing lots of leaks - lots of people left/leaving the company these days... I agree that we should all shutdown fb - the amount of privacy you give up is beyond voyeuristic...
