“People have a really big voice when they don’t have a face. I’ve got 26 years of proof that I am a driver,” she said. “I don’t ever regret anything I’ve ever done. Were competitive, Kardas said. Were right there with the upper echelon (teams in the tournament). We used 10 players in every half of every game.
I miss it, no question about it. At the same time I go to practice now, especially since I not at school anymore, and I don have the same contact. It time for someone else to take over. A sub category of the Love/Hate Theory is the Alum Theory, in which you pick a team based on the number of players on its roster who attended your alma mater. For graduates of Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Virginia Tech and other schools who send dozens of players to the NFL, this axiom is of no help. For me, should I adhere to the Alum Theory, I would be left cheering for New England, because of Aqib Talib (yes, THAT Aqib Talib) and Mike Rivera and Atlanta for Kerry Meier, although he is on the injured list.

The honor student turns or nery. “I know people will say that I’m from a small school and all that, and I know it will be a challenge,” Wakefield said. “I’ve basically set a standard already in that not too many people get a chance to play up there in the first place.
Receivers Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis have been used on occasion but with minimal impact so far. Rookie Ty Montgomery (ankle) is back at practice after missing the last six games, but he doesn’t expect any decision to be made on his status until game time on Sunday. Veteran tight end Andrew Quarless is practicing for the second straight week but has yet to be activated..
Both teams come into this showdown on hot streaks, with the Vikings having won five of their last six and Philly having taken four of their last five. The Eagles made a splash with last week’s 44 6 stomping of the Cowboys in what essentially amounted to a Week 17 playoff game. But the NFL is maddening in the focus on “last week.” What about two weeks ago when Philly lost 10 3 to a non playoff Redskins club? And let us not forget the Eagles Week 11 tie against crappy Cincinnati..
