Jesus, steve it's being reported by ny times multiple deaths reported at a grade school shooting in conneticut just outside new York. God help us all. Prayers for those kids.
Your overly ambitious superiority complex.
laconophilia is everywhere...
It absolutely sickens me. 27 dead, 18 children. And the shooter is dead. The fvcking coward. I can't imagine much worse of a situation as a parent.
That makes me want to vomit, cry, then shoot the shooter. WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE????
Hug your kids and try to explain this tonight. I have no words. Good luck to all of you parents.
As much as I want kids- this sort of thing scares the shit out of me..
What kind of world will they be brought up in.. scary
Yeah, horrible. A guy got shot in the head pretty damn close to my office the other week. Did it right out in a HEAVILY trafficed area.
For reference it would be like shooting someone in the head at 1PM by the Diag or for my fellow Spartans like shooting someone in the head at point blank range right on grand River.
Gun man is still at large, unbelievable.
I saw a 16 year old get shot in the head a few years back by another teenager. That shit scarred me for life.
This shooting is just horrible today, no words for it. I have a co-worker that is from the town right next to it and is obviously shaken up.
With out getting too political for the most part think of kids in war torn countries, kids in the tropics with all sorts of disease/plights, poverty, droughts, poor medical systems, lack of medicine and infrastructure. They are surrounded by horrors constantly.
Just heard they found he killed another family member before the shooting.
Here's the article on the guy that got shot right by my office
"NEW YORK — The shooter of a Los Angeles man in broad daylight on a New York City street was so cool and precise he left no doubt he’s killed before, possibly as a professional hit man, police say.
A security video that hasn’t been made public shows the gunman walking up behind Brandon Lincoln Woodard on Monday and pressing the barrel of a pistol to the back of his head without saying a word. The gunman later slips into a getaway car as the driver pulls off.
The car was found unoccupied and parked Wednesday in Queens.
Police say they’ve interviewed a woman who spent time with Woodard the evening before he was shot a block from Central Park.
No motive or suspect has been identified in the killing."
I am not too much of a man to admit that I have cried several times today over this. 20 children are dead, 26 total. Only 1 injury. This monster had to execute these children to be this efficient.
I have 2 children in kindergarten and 1 in 1st grade. I can not imagine the terror these children went through, wanting nothing more than for their mom or dad to save them. My son thinks I am a hero, that there is nothing I can't do. He would sit there waiting for me to walk in and stop it. These children were doing the same.
I am sorry, but I can't fathom this. We are called to protect children, to take care of the orphans and widows, and this monster kills them. I just don't get it.
No shame in that at all, there's a lot of long faces around the city today. I guarantee you are not the only one.
Cried a bunch today. Like a baby when I hugged my kids tonight. I've run the emotions from sorrow to disgust to rage. Both my kids seem more disgusted and angry then scared. Just a shitty day
Is there an easy way to jump to the middle of a long thread. Eg suppose i wanted to jump to page 122 of this thread. What would be the easiest way to get there?
The page of the thread is the last 3 numbers in the URL. For example, the URL right now is
So just change the "204" to whatever number.
Thanks! I suck at the interwebs.
looks like it was a big news day in Michigan land. Jerald Robinson gone and Norfleet to CB. Isn't he a pretty short?
5'7". I don't understand this move, he played CB in highschool pretty well. I can only imagine he is there for depth at Nickel Corner. Where speed and quickness is more important than height. But 5'7" is very small for defense. Regardless the position.
Wow that's short. Is he still going to play RB? He's an exciting kick returner, he would be electrifying with the ball in his hands at RB.
Per Brian Bennett at ESPN:
On Thursday, we linked to a story from the Orlando Sentinel's Mike Bianchi that said the Capital One Bowl wanted to take Northwestern and Texas A&M but bowed to pressure from the Big Ten and SEC to select conference runners-up Nebraska and Georgia instead.
Capital One Bowl executive director Steve Hogan disputed that story on Friday, saying that the Big Ten had "zero input" into the game's selection process.
"I can't be any more clear about that," Hogan told ESPN.com. "There was no mandate from either conference. It's our contractual decision, and our committee had the sole ability and authority to pick what teams we want."
There were several media reports leading up to bowl selection evening that Northwestern was the pick for the Capital One Bowl. Hogan said he doesn't know where those reports came from. The Wildcats seemed to have more momentum, as Nebraska was coming off an embarrassing loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game and played in the same game last year. But Hogan said his bowl typically selects higher-ranked teams who have won the head-to-head meetings and have better conference records when picking between two schools. The Huskers held all those advantages over Northwestern.
Hogan said the Capital One Committee had "lots of wide-ranging discussions" about which team to take but ultimately selected Nebraska after a vote from about 150 members.

Whoa, getting picked for having a better conference record and winning head to head? Almost seems un-American.
