I mean to me it only makes since. For instance Vince Young, arguably the true heisman, was brilliant in the championship game. Brilliant in the fact that his 4th and 5 game winning touchdown sealed a multi-million dollar deal, and placed the coach on a pedastle. I don't argue that he should recieve any financial compensation, but I do feel that many like him shouldn't have to struggle through K-12 as much, and depend on their athletic ability to be accepted into good schools.

Re: We're Marching To Zion . . . .

Texas Star ·
I have to agree with Mr Chester. Why wouldn't marching be valid for today? There were no black teachers at my highschool, and a little lady walked outside the school everyday in protest for nearly the entire semester. Every morning she would show up with a sign questioning the schools blatant lack of black teachers. By the next semester we had 2 black teachers. One was an art teacher, and one was a coach. What she did ALONE was very powerful!
