STEVE!!!

What a great picture. I don't know if you were at Devon's Den, or someone sent you the picture, but THANK YOU for sharing this. What a warm feeling I got from first watching the Devon's Dog (Dat Dog) promo then seeing this picture.

AWESOME. Can't wait to order a few next time I'm in town.

Great story! I am thankful that my son made it through playground, high school and college without a major injury. To those of you with children, love them because you never know what will happen. I can tell you that it is PURE HELL when your child is taken from you, in any manner.

Great job by ESPN. They shine a very positive light on Tulane and Devon's recovery. They could have done it without Rick Dickson in the segment. At least Blowhard Cowen wasn't included.

+1 Excellent piece by ESPN and Gameday. The Michigan fans have class- heard lots of applause after the piece was shown and they went to break. At least RD didn't stumble through his parts. Devon is an inspiration. Prayers for him and his family.

Dickson is terrible at many/most parts of his job, but this isn't the place to give him grief. He has gone above and beyond in working to support Walker and his family. I would HOPE this is something we can all unite around.

Right, wrong time and place, I'll reserve my criticisms for the upcoming basketball season.

I can't agree more. RD has been a complete and utter failure in many aspects of his reign as AD at Tulane. But what he did in the hours and days immediately after this tragic event was above and beyond what most AD's would have done. Yes, he is flawed, but RD's humanitarian side was proudly on display with Devon, his family, and the Tulane community.

May Devon be an inspiration to us all.

Devon's presence on the field and in the locker room has been an emotional lift for the team this season. Definitely helps with motivation to win.
