    ok, i've had enough of people calling out individual players in a nasty manner. if you want to discuss the aspects of the game - the x's and o's - that is fine. even if i disagree with you, i defend your right to say it. even when i think you are being an ass.

    HOWEVER.... calling players names and getting nasty about individual players crosses the line of what is acceptable. if you don't believe me, please read the user's agreement!

    these kids - and i stress kids - are not professionals. they are young men giving their heart, their blood, their sweat, and their tears to their team and their school. they are representing my alma mater in a way that makes me proud. they slipped. they lost. if any of you think that what you are feeling is worse than what they are feeling, go to a shrink and get some meds cause you are totally dilusional! i have no doubt these kids are kicking themselves harder than any of us can even imagine!

    i am ashamed of some of you that call yourselves tiger fans!

    I agree with okie and think that the flat calling out flynn and others is disgusting.

    This team has given us something to be proud of and showed us what it means to have the will to win. They slipped but this isn't the end for us, nor is it the end of the players. Call it loyalty to our seniors call it what you want, but I would rather have a team I can be proud of on and off the field then anything. This tiger TEAM are already champions in my heart and we shouldn't be so quick to judge. (That are should be is but a pain in the azz to correct on the blackberry so sorry).

    I agree on everything said, but on the other hand I think guys should to some degree expect if their level of play drops below a certain level. Take Lafell for instance... ok fine he's dropped some balls. All recievers do evenutally but when you start dropping 50% of weekly passes thrown your way, especially in key situations like he has people have to expect that he's going to catch some criticism. This of course just my .02 on the subject.
