They got some solid players from here in Columbus. I hope they can make the transition, and contribute. I had one more young man in my youth group that was on the fence, but went a different direction. The recruiter was working hard up here. Good luck.

BTW, WSM, glad to see you keeping your sig going...

Can CAU hang on to the dam ball. 4 fumbles.

While we are small on D, and don't pack any punch...the O sets up for "the woo" way too often. It's tough to watch.  I'm sure it's demoralizing and frustrating to the defensive players.

They beat them  A LOT WORSE than they be us.   :blush:

Right. Our schools can play 7 on 7.

ECU's receivers are real deal, and the QB is solid. 2, if not 3, will be playing on Sunday. Now....I think ECU wanted to show out.....

I enjoyed the updates. Thank you. We have often match up well with Valley...but not enough....

Let's re-group, fellas...

Clark-Atlanta - 18
Central State -28
FINAL

I was at the game...

Man, it is tough to watch our offense. I am not a fan of the scheme.  Not sexy at all...and I would be ok with that if it was effective. Good to see Coach Tweet making it to the games. Our D seems a little small without an enforcer. Some guys made plays. Our DBS are small. Big receivers will be an issue.

As for Central State...they were very big. O-line is huge. RBs run hard, and with mean intentions. They will have some success this year...and as the momentum builds, they will get more talent...and it could be trouble for the SIAC because there ain't no comp for real D-II talent here in Ohio. Most of the the solid D-II talent here had been falling to D-III wch is why all of the top teams are from Ohio. Anyway...

Their band did a nice job.

oh what we choose to peck and gaggle over....these same, so called "fake" schools play other schools, yet we don't raise a dag gone fuss when we got a bunch of our players on current rosters taking a bunch of remedial &independent study courses and claiming some joke majors....

but y'all carry on.....

Dizzam....

I don't think we should be playing these guys. It's embarrassing. I would much rather see a D-III school scheduled. Shoot...somebody bring in Mount Union.

BTW....no one seems to be flapping about Concordia....I put them in the category of schools we shouldn't be playing either.

Hail naw. Academic study table support. Better job placement with employers.  Meal plans so students don't have to take time away from studying to have to work. Curriculum that is tailored for either job, or further academic study...instead of creating high barriers to exit. Those things help...to prop up these students because the class rigor ain't what English majors face.

i'm glad to see Prince putting himself out there more. That reclusive behavior don't put money in the bank. I saw him when he was on that sitcom after the Super Bowl.

You are right.  I was glad to see him do that. Hopefully his thinking will continue to evolve as it relates to digital music and his internet presence. Instead of suing/trying to shut down every image of him...embrace the publicity, and build on that base.  And...find a platform (iTunes, spotify, or whatever) that he can release his music instead of thinking it is a master conspiracy to take money out of his pocket. Heck...throw some of I his old stuff that wasn't released that he had no intentions of releasing.  His version of what the young folks today call a mix tape. A few years ago he gave away his musicology cd as part of his concert ticket. Creative...and I believe it got him to Platinum Status. A ticket was a CD.

The beauty of our Noble Clan is that we bring people together from all walks of life, and gives us exposure to ideas and beliefs that might be divergent from our own...but invariably we can find common ground.  

Brother OldSport is correct in that while the National organization may provide insight and direction on foundation activities...it is up to each local chapter to determine if, in fact, they want to establish a foundation or not...and what will the principal goal/purpose of the foundation be.  Invariably, if a chapter is looking raise funds for most anything with non-members, business, and other civic organizations...there must be a wall to separate those fund raising activities from the business of the fraternity.  The structure, board, by-laws, and activities are separate. It is a very thin line, but if done properly...can be successful.

Finally...as the Guide Right and Kappa League Chairman for my chapter...I know that a lot of folks are doing good work on the front lines.  I think the mere recognition of The President for the need to support our Young Men, will encourage funding sources (real money) to give a second look. We've been making it work before he mentioned it, and believe we will moving forward...but when we have a Saturday morning meeting, and I know some of the Young Men are coming in hungry...I know they are not alone. When I see a Young Man's confidence improve and can speak to a group in public...or his grades have dramatically improved...I know he is not alone.  Many of us do the work not for recognition...but a little spotlight can help grease the coffers for us to do more. I have 30 High School Young Men in our program...and would love to get to 60 or more...but we need gas to make the car go.  

Side note...sponsoring a little league football team is hot, Brother OldSport. Well done...

I recall that shot. I thought it was very powerful, especially after the images of Reginald Denny images in the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict.

I was, however, conflicted at the events. What do people think will happen when they go to these things.

I watched the show....and Prince did his thang...but that's what he does. I'm glad he pulled "She's Always in My Hair" off the shelf. And....he subtly ripped it on the guitar at the end. I knew he did...but I just watched it again...and yep, he did.

3rd Eye Girl seems ok. The drummer can really lay it down. The guitars didn't move me. I'm still partial to the Asian bassist he had a few years ago with the extended neck bass that played that thang like nobody else.

First time I heard Liv Warfield...and if all of her material is like that, I'm hooked. I will be researching her today.

The stars of the show for me...the horn section from NPG! Those cats blew on everything they touched!  Wow!!!!!
