Tragedy in College Football

Ted Agu, defensive lineman of California Golden Bears, dies – ESPN.

It is believed that Agu, 21, collapsed at practice and died because of his sickle cell trait. While respecting the situation, I would like to point out that to ESPN, the following are all more important than the sudden death at practice of a defensive lineman:

A-Rod. Aaron Hernandez’s cell phone. A college conference change. And a baseball free agent signing.

Someone died during a major college football university practice. Died.

Not a suspension; not a criminal; not money; not money.

A kid died.

C’mon, Snarfspn.

Luckily, Mark Dantonio’s ego prevented his team from putting the pressure back on the Wolverines, who were all too familiar [...]
  • Glasses or No? I watched Jim Harbaugh furiously pace the sidelines with every insane delayed false start penalty right before the second quarter closed, and he made the same adjustment at halftime I did: he threw on the glasses. At first, they seem so perfect. You can filter life’s choices a little faster, literally see more… but is [...]
  • Wolverines Hold Strong to Defeat Colorado I slept in quite late, yet it was only halftime. I quickly learned Michigan led 24-21 despite trailing 14-0 to begin the game. They took the second half possession and soon scored on a deep pass, leading 28-24. That would be the last time we allowed them to score. Game MVP Jabrill Peppers returned the [...]
