I posted this in another thread but thought it was more appropriate for this one.

Feeling very sad tonight.  Our football team at the University of Utah is grieving the loss of another one of our players, Aaron Lowe.  He was at a party Saturday night and a fight broke out, he stepped in to break it up and ended up getting shot along with another person.  He died on the scene.  It is so senseless and depressing.  He played in the game earlier in the day and now he is gone.

What makes it even worse is he died 8 months after teammate Ty Jordan was killed in an accidental shooting last December in Texas.  They were high school classmates and Lowe changed his number to 22 in honor of Jordan for this year. He was the first recipient of a scholarship set up in Ty Jordan's honor. :sigh:  I was having a hard time getting psyched up for the season this year because of Ty's death, it just took some of the fun out of it. Now this with all the parallels just makes it seem like we are jinxed.  They will be retiring the number 22 for both of them.  This really sucks and they have few leads of the rotten s.o.b. who did this. :rage:
Very sad. So are college kids now not supposed to attend parties?
Trying really hard here to not get political here but suffice to say gun violence continues to escalate in this country and these are the all too typical results of that.

Don't know the answer here, looks as though Lowe was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  He tried to break up a fight and got shot.  I am sure many parents are telling their kids to stay away from parties.  It is just such rotten luck for the team to lose two players to guns.. :(

Jesus K Riest, I don't know which is worse.

The Detroit Lions losing to a field goal that hits the crossbar and goes over this last Sunday, or the Miami Hurricanes "doink" off the upright last night to close the game.

Glad I wasn't in my local watering hole for the "doink",  that place must have erupted.

I'm sure the Lions did not appreciate the loss, but were probably like, "I guess it wasn't our day". If you get beaten because of something that's never been done before the win wasn't meant to be.

The 60 yarder he made in 2013 to win the game against you probably hurt worse.

He's the GOAT when it comes to NFL kickers.

We weren't ready for them. Too many mistakes in the first half, too little progress in the second. I appreciated that their coach called ND a top 5 program and positively cited all the work Brian Kelly put in at Cinci before coming to ND. Showed more class than I felt coming off their QB. But that's not important. Honestly I wouldn't be so disappointed if we'd kept playing like we did against Florida State or Toledo a few weeks ago, but my hopes were raised after the Wisconsin game, I figured we stood a chance. Not with an offense that can't move the ball we didn't. It just really sucks it had to be at home. I was in that stadium for most of the winning streak that was just snapped, and I was in that stadium during the 4-8 season that preceded it. For a lot of my friends this is the first time they've ever seen ND lose at home.  I guess on the bright side I don't have to hear the drum major attempt to console the band after their very first home loss. I really doubt they have much more prepared than our motto: "band always wins."

4-0 Eastern Washington's QB Eric Barierre leads the FCS with 445.8 yds per game.  Tonight he faces the Montana Grizzlies, who have given up only two touchdowns in their last three games (they are 3-0).  Live on ESPN2, from the Inferno!

Yep and it pisses me off. They were the only hope and it's already gone. Oregon is such a soft fukking program. Anyone with a physical o-line, usually Stanford, just runs all over them. Finesse teams are vulnerable to those type of offenses and they proved it yet again. Refs helped Stanford too but it never should have come to that. (btw, I'm a Cougs and Huskies fan so my rant is a neutral observation)

Don't be so sure. If the Pukeyes win out they'll get in. ESPN runs the playoff and some university in Ohio means ratings and that's what they care about. Same reason overmatched Notre Dame teams have been in the last couple of years. Kirk Douchestriet will literally jizzing on the air for his alma mater to get in over some other one loss team and will even politic for them over an unbeaten Cincy team if that's how it plays out.

I suppose they might still get in. But they do have to face off against Michigan still, who are undefeated so far... I'm not sure I can root for Michigan just to see OSU not make it to the playoff... but if I must...

To be fair, ND has never made it in without going undefeated in its regular season, and has never won a conference championship to help its chances. I'm not arguing there's no bias, but I think being an independent makes it so ND has to have a perfect record for consideration.
