Be a Hero Today.... Adopt a Shelter Pet... The Beatles once sang "Can't Buy Me Love"... I disagree, unconditional Love can be bought, for the nominal adoption fee at your local Pet Shelter !

Touching to see this, but it is shameful as you progress up the ladder to college and then Pro Football Things change!!! Still remember the Saints defense under Defensive Coordinator Williams trying to physically take Brett Farve out and potentially end his career. To watch one Saint hit Farve high and one go for his knees was sickening to watch. As a former football player it is easy to tell good hard hitting football versus immoral trying to take a player out. The players have families like everyone, Once money comes to play things change and that is my fear when money is brought into college football for players, Will change the game forever :(

It may be 5 years ago, but I'll bet every player on both teams remembers it like yesterday. Well done, coach.

The low hit on Rodgers was a result of the Saint DE being blocked. Should have been called by refs as late but wasn’t a conscious decision to go high and low.

Zero correlation between bounty ball and image & likeness ruling. If anything this ruling may encourage young men to reflect on their behavior on & off the field or lose their share of residual product sales
