Learning to forgive yourself is the first major hurdle to truly being able to move on.

Do you have healthcare through your employer? If so, it's possible you can get some free sessions. With mine, I had access to 6 hours worth of sessions before I had to start paying out of pocket. Mental health coverage is abysmal in this country, but it can be vital. I highly recommend trying it. And remember to be patient. It took my 3-4 tries with different counselors before I found one that made me comfortable.

Went through a very similar episode some years back. Gf left me, lost my job, and mom got diagnosed w/ Alzheimer's....all in the span of about 3-4 months. Talk about a serious gut punch. I was depressed, out of shape, and developed all kinds of bad habits. The people who helped keep me afloat were 100% my dad, best friend, fitness coach, and my therapist. The last one is important....your friends and family can help a lot but they are not professionally trained to deal with clinical depression. I highly recommend finding a good shrink....it's well worth the time and investment. 

As an aside....during that time I ended up distracting by moving to Brazil for 6 months to teach English. I just needed a change of scenery and to not feel like I was being judged for awhile. Now I can speak conversational Portuguese and made some lifelong friends down there. You have a long and fulfilling life ahead of you my friend....hang in there. We're all rooting for you.

I live close to Uptown, which is just NW of downtown Dallas. If you like going out, I highly recommend hanging out in Uptown or Deep Ellum neighborhoods. Great nightlife, restaurants, and live music. Uptown is more bougie with overpriced cocktails and Deep Ellum is full of hipsters and dive bars. There's great outdoors activities everywhere. I always ride my bike on the Katy Trail....not sure if it goes all the way to Denton. My next big Texas adventures are attending the Shell Houston Open with my Uncle (in Houston obviously) and I'm going to LSU - Texas in Austin this year. Should be a doozy. Congrats on your program and best of luck!

Stanley was such a beast on that last drive, and David Boston doing his strut in the endzone!!! Thank you for this brief flashback to my childhood :)

"When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live."

-Stuart Scott

I think Tyler embodied these words perfectly. RIP young man, you left the world far too soon.

Best passing QB in B1G history and he gets shafted for Tua and Kyler. To be fair Tua and Kyler are both amazing, but they also benefited from having solid offensive line play and AA receivers. And don't forget that defense in the Big 12 is a complete joke.

Comment 09 Dec 2018

Option 1 - Stay in college, work for free, risk injury, risk fall in draft stock, and probably not be able to match this year's productivity

OR

Option 2 - Get drafted in the Top 10, sign a $10 million+ contract, set yourself and your family up financially for life, become famous, and use new found fame to open doors to additional business opportunities. 

That's a tough decision....

Comment 05 Dec 2018

I was battling chronic depression in 2014. Gf  left me, broke, unemployed, and out of shape. One of the very few reprieves I got from that emotional rollercoaster was OSU’s magic run at the end of the season. I will never forget 85 yards and a cloud of dust...that play somehow made  me temporarily forget everything that was wrong and be filled with happiness that the Bucks finally made it back! Thank you Coach for providing me moments like that in some of my darkest hours. 

Comment 03 Dec 2018

8 teams. You can't take the bias out of the committee, but you can make it negligible by making sure every deserving team gets a crack at the Natty. We have established playoff systems for literally every other sport (professional and amateur) on the planet. D1 College Football should be no different. 

Comment 02 Dec 2018

Sorry, but no. Playoff needs to be expanded because the current setup is garbage. The field of 4 should not be left up to the subjective evaluations of biased individuals. 8 teams won't get rid of the bias, but it'll ensure the best and the most deserving teams make it in. I can't believe D1 CFB still hasn't figured out a logical postseason in 2018.

Ugh....WHY DO GUYS DO THIS???? This guy has the opportunity of a lifetime playing in the NFL, and this is what gets him. 

Comment 29 Nov 2018

I'm not interested in seeing this team get their asses kicked by Bama in the playoff. I feel that's what would happen if they played tomorrow, but I reserve the right to change my mind pending their showing at the B1G championship.

Comment 28 Nov 2018

Disappointed, but not worried. Tonight was just not our night. Barely a quarter of the way through the season so there's so much more b-ball to be played.
