Jesus Fucking Christ.

I haven't spent a DV since Stravinsky was unceremoniously escorted from these hallowed grounds, but I just loosened the purse strings.

He has an opinion.
He has a platform.

1 + 1 = 2

And, what -- you're asking us to believe that if there isn't a CFB season, it's Herbstreit's fault?

+1, Bleed.

I don't know enough about recruiting X's & O's to say definitively, but it seemed that Urban felt it necessary to 'slow-play' in-state recruits as a natural function of the overall process, and not necessarily because he 'wanted to.'

Coach Day seems willing to pull the trigger earlier on lower-rated in-state prospects to shore up local talent, and then branch out nationally.

Two different philosophies. We'll see how it pans out.

Let's all do the right thing and allow this young man room to breathe, without the perfunctory advice. 

As one who has suffered from major depression for 40 years, I can safely say that the 'feel-good' memes we all see about 'taking a walk in the woods to be one with nature' don't amount to a pile of lizard shit in regards to coping with the demons we face every waking hour that normal people will never understand. 

It doesn't cost anything to step back, and just let someone be.
