I was playing golf at the Woodlands Golf Course in Hampton, VA today when I was thinking about this topic.

For all the amount of money public education spends on schools per student you would expect public education to be better than private education. Quite often its not because of the focus of the teachers and the students as well as beauracy that goes on in these joints. Who out there is feeling me on this? The same thing applies to sports.

Of course America loves a winner but America loves a winner so much more when the winner was an under dog its part of our national identity. And on that note with a full understanding of in state rivalry as well as what it takes to over come hardships in life. I will say "We Are Marshall!", "We Are Marshall". I just wish Prefontaine were here to say it too.
