Jul 20th 2010 5:59PM I find it very interesting that the "hate monger/liberal hating" Beck is defending the lady on his show today that was fired from her job by the White House only hours after learning of just a "segment" of her talk about her mtg with a white farmer. Why was the NAACP so eager to release only a "portion" of her talk to them that actually took place months ago? Why was the WH so anxious to get rid of her? The answer lies in the whole speech she gave which none of us has heard. Mr. Beck says the lady was using this talk with the white farmer to show she had a revelation about the have's versus the "have not's" showing her that it is not always about black versus white. This is what I like about Glenn Beck, a solid defender of people's rights as granted by our Constitution which he defends everyday, regardless of political affiliation.
Apr 23rd 2010 5:30PM I am not an NFL scout by any means but I do know football talent having coached 5-a Texas HS football for 21 years and knowing when certain players have the "it factor". Colt McCoy has it. McCoy played Bradford and Oklahoma four times. He beat them 3 of 4 and the one he lost, (3 points) he played coming off a concussion (late hit) the week before against K State, a loss, both games in 2007. He lost two times playing hurt his freshman year (2006)(K-State - went out in the first series scoring on a qB sneak and got a stinger (dead arm) and played against A&M the next week with the same dead arm and lost 7-12 against A&M. The only games MC Coy lost while playing the whole game healty was his second game as a freshman against Ohio State. In 2008 Texas lost the conference and one game against Tex Tech. He drove the horns 85 yds to a TD with less than 4 minutes left in the game and went ahead by 2 points with 76 seconds left in the game. Tech scored with 1 second left on the clock and Texas could not run another play. So, in 50 games, McCoy playing healthy, only lost one game against Ohio State and left the field ahead by 2 points in the other game against Tech and never had another chance to run a play. This kid as "it" the will to win and he passes it on to his teamates. I am not a palm reader, but I would not have bet against Texas if McCoy had been healthy the whole game against Alabama. He may not have the strongest arm and he is not 6-4 but he has the strongest mind and the "It" that cannot be coached. McCoy just wins.
Apr 1st 2010 5:40PM McCoy beat Oklahoma and Bradford, 3 of of 4 times, even without a running game as part of his arsenal.The one game he lost, (in 2007) he played with an injured bicept on his throwing arm and a carryover concussion from the previous game yet still threw for more yards and completions in the game than Bradford did. This young man has "it," that intangible you cannot coach...he can will his team to victory. When the game is on the line, everything slows down for him, similar to another great one.... remember Joe Montana? Some quarterbacks have rocket arma but cannot slow the game down in their mind and make mistakes when the game is on the line. This kid is a winner. Whoever picks him will look like a genius.
Mar 22nd 2010 2:28PM Tiger has said he has no one to blame but himself, that he sinned and turned his back on his marriage, his wife, kids, mother, friends, his foundation and the kids it supporta along with his friends and supporters. The newswriters/reporters will always want more, will never be satisfied even with 45 minute interviews as they will always find something to rag on him about. This is not about Tiger, it is about them...
"Do not judge, lest you be judged"..... just get off his back and let this young family heal.
Get a life media!
Mar 3rd 2010 8:51PM Thanks for your service jmithemort. I also have a son (Captain in the Army) who spent some time in Iraq during the Fullajah clean up and he voices your same points. Our intelligence was not the only operative that said he had WMD, Russia, British, and most of the free world said the same thing. However the real culprit was Saddam himself. He wanted everyone to believe he had WMD to keep Iran and other countries from invading him and guess what?..... President Bush called him on it and the world is better off without him. My son's Iraqi interpreter said Saddam railed for years that the USA had no spine and would never invade Iraq because they were afraid to put boots on the ground. The hangman had the last laugh.
Feb 18th 2010 2:02PM Tiger Woods is making a public appearance for the first time since the infamous incident. Let's at least wait until after the statement he makes Friday before jumping all over him. We are all mortals on this earth and only one of our inhabitants who walked on this earth (a little over 2,000 years ago) was without sin. At least,for his families sake, back off....
Feb 12th 2010 5:55PM Looking at the site, especially in the curves (where the tragedy took place) it looks like a simple padding such as we have on goal posts in football would have prevented this. I cannot conceive no padding on these iron supports less than 4 yards from the edge of a track on the curves where the competitors reach these kind of speeds. This should be done before any additional races are held on this track.
Feb 3rd 2010 4:43PM I only hope the best for Tiger and Elin and the two small children. I will not judge Tiger, but will leave that to another that will judge us all. We are all human and none of us are without sin. Golf needs Tiger Woods, just as it will need the next golfing star who follows him. I have enjoyed watching Tiger hit golf shots that defy imaginination and am planning on seeing him at the Old Course in St. Andrews this year, as I have already committed to my tickets and accommodations. However, I am really pulling for that young family and hope whatever decision they make is in the best interest of all four of them. In the meantime, Golf and the golfing community can wait.
Oct 26th 2009 12:43PM Lot's of passion in all these statements. That's good for college football which I believe is the greatest spectator sport on earth which includes the mighty NFL. Speaking not only as a fan but from a person who coached 32 years in Texas HS football before retiring, it is time for a playoff and after "minutes of research" I have come up with an solution. This playoff will make college FB more popular and more profitable than the NFL playoffs, the Super Bowl, March madness or the World Series. Of course, the #1 team will be decided on the field of play and not in polls which is course what has ignited all these wonderful comments.... oh, well can't have it all, can we?

Gov Palin can take anything this idiot can dish out, however, Letterman went over the line when he says that Palin's 12 year daughter (who attended the game with the Governor)was knocked up by Rodriguez during the 7th inning. There is nothing funny at all in that remark. He needs to pick on adults, not 12 year old girls. If the media does not call him on this one, what will be next?
