There is a big difference between Redskins and Indians. The former can definitely be considered offensive; the latter is a generic term. Lose Chief Wahoo, keep the name, and everything is groovy. If anything, Native Americans should be trying to get Andrew Jackson's image taken off the $20 bill. Trail of Tears, anyone?

Stop questioning you? Because you're the expert, right? Oh, woe is us because we don't get every 5-star recruit. Oh, the shame of it. However will we carry on?

Maybe the kid pans out and maybe he doesn't. Just because he doesn't live up to your personal standards, which seem to involve subjective rankings from web sites with which you have no affiliation, doesn't mean you have the right to criticize this kid. I guess what I'm asking is, who do you think you are?

I have a CPAP for apnea, but I can't keep the damn thing on my face. I'll wake up and the mask will be on the floor. Short of duct tape, any suggestions?

The 40-hour work week, paid time off, health care, retirement benefits, workers' comp, the end of making little kids go down into the coal mines... all that and more, brought to you by organized labor. My father was a miner, a proud UMW member. He was smart enough to recognize corruption at the top when he saw it (and there was plenty - look up Boyle, Tony), but corruption does not negate the positive aspects or the necessity of organized labor.

Now I'm not naive enough to say that nothing could possibly go wrong with this movement. Hell, if this goes to the courts, it might all fall through anyway. Personally, I always saw student-athletes as participants in a kind of work-study program. If nothing else, it's an interesting experiment. Regardless, people who are jumping up and down about this need to calm down. This is only the first step. Nothing has been decided or finalized. The announcement was basically a recommendation. The national NLRB will pick it up, and then it will likely go into the courts. Relax, people. Let it play out.

You can only do so much with the talent you have, and the Hogs didn't have all that much. Plus, it's not like Ash can jack his players into the Matrix and download the defense. It takes, time, study and practice to learn a new defense. Will we have growing pains? Maybe, but they should be mitigated at least in part by the talent that we have.
