Having had a lot of top end recruits on hand for our 38-10 win over Penn St during the blackout at the Shoe, I'm wondering what the overall #take was from some of our biggest targets?

Thank you for the solid advice and feedback from your experience. That is definitely one thing I keep hearing, that experience varies greatly among affected individuals. So as you said, it may be a very promising sign that I am not totally dead to the world at this point. I'll definitely do my best to keep updates on here regarding my condition. Thoughts and prayers are always appreciated from anyone willing to send them my way.

Thank you for the the informative, albeit somewhat terrifying, comment. I have not had a rash yet, but the knife like pain in my head has become very familiar over the past three days. Last night was the first time I've been able to be out of bed for longer than 10 minutes without feeling like death, and of course by the time I got back to bed I felt like I over did it (by laying comfortably on the couch watching 30 minutes of tv). Good advice on what to tell the kids, I know my 8 year old son has been worried about dad the past couple days. Me being out of bed for a short time last night helped his perception of my condition I think. The doctor thinks he'll have the lab work back Monday and then he can officially rule out or properly diagnose a few things he was checking for (west Nile being the primary). I'll post back here with an update assuming I haven't hit total semi-coma state. Out of curiosity, once you were diagnosed how did your treatment change?

I'll be honest with you. I'm terrified of trying the spicy hot v8 right now. Seems like something that would leave me crying in the fetal position on the bathroom floor in an hour or so. I might try it out on the next bad hangover though!

I guess the symptoms combined with the time of year it is led him to West Nile. He said August is the biggest time of year for it. The major thing is the headache that doesn't go away for days at a time.

Oh man, I wish. The nausea part has done it's best to make sure I'm not ingesting anything. I've literally only eaten 37 grapes in the past two days to go with my moderately high water intake. Not sure a drink or several is gonna stay down. Or help the ridiculous headache..

I can certainly appreciate the multitude of directions you all took with your responses, however I feel like I'm no closer to an answer. *sigh* why hasn't anyone here created a Birm Spotlight for moments like this?

Fine fine fine - ruin my hilarious post about how you live on 11w with a comment which I now have no response to because you've changed your story to make it seem like you're rather philanthropic toward our good friends at this wonderful website. I clearly can't counter that, 3M. Well played.

Because coming here every time is obviously a huge inconvenience for you... (note the mobile sarcasm dots)

We mostly rely on carrier pigeon still, but in spotty locations it's available now. 

I get where you're going with this, but I want something to play on my local am radio channels for my 30 minute commute from work to home.

Any chance you'll be on the radio in Wichita, KS anytime soon??  You'd be a hell of a lot more entertaining than any of the sports radio shows out here.  I can't even tell you how exciting it is tuning in to 'Hawk Talk and hearing all about the many questions surrounding the KU football program.  You can't even pretend to enjoy discussing Jayhawk football.  You just can't.

For a while now I've felt that Victor is the must get in this class among the wide receiver group.  I went back and watched his junior year highlights today and my feelings were definitely confirmed.  Kid is a complete player at the receiver position.  His ability to go up and get it is fantastic (even pulling it out of the defenders hands), he has excellent field presence and awareness, and he included clips of his blocking in his highlights (watch the 1:03 mark in his video).  I love seeing that.  So often the tape is just of a player being more athletic than everyone else on the field and they look unstoppable, and while that is great, i don't think it's always very indicative of how their skill will translate to the next level.  Victor's tape, in my opinion, does more to show his football skill than a vast majority of the skill position players out there.

This has been the big news story out here, and rightfully so.  It's such a sad situation to take place at an otherwise great sports event that brings in people from all over the nation and even internationally.  If you're the praying type, in addition to the Carlile family, the player who hit Kaiser could use them now, too.  I can't imagine what he must be going through as a college-age young man who has to shoulder that burden for the rest of his life.  Very very sad day here in Wichita.

I'm a huge Reds fan and, while I hated losing Cueto, I loved the trade with Kansas City.  Cueto was my favorite pitcher in a very long time - maybe ever.  But I fully understand that there was almost no chance Cueto would return after the season.  The deal you should be mad about is the one that paid Homer Bailey instead of Johnny Beisbol.  Or the $225 million dollar Joey Votto signing.  The three pitchers they got from the Royals are all highly regarded left handed pitchers who throw mid-to-high 90s.  Brandon Finnegan is going to be a stud.  This team needs young, controlled pitching help and that's what they've targeted and received.  And as Buckfutter mentioned above, if they could get Shipley and two other prospects rated in the DBacks top 10, thats a deal they should jump all over.  Just my opinion, of course.
