GO EAGLES!!!!!!!!!!!! So proud of you!!! Sorry about another injury: broken arm of starting receiver? O.K., let's see: earlier, high ankle sprain of qtrbk; torn "something in mid-section" of 2nd--now 1st qtrbk WHO IS ROCKIN'; broken fibula of 3rd qtrbk after only 3 plays; and now, broken arm of starting receiver. Help!


I went to the JSU game. They lost. I suerly hated to see them lose although I like Grambling too because of Eddie Robertson. Before the game the Class of 1967 football team at JSU were introduced. I got to see Harold Jackson, the ex JSU and NFL star and Rod Paige who was their coach back then and later Secretary of Education under Bush's first term.

Good win for USM. I forgot all about the game until the fourth quarter. That last drive for the TD was very crucial, considering that they had a 20-point lead going into halftime and almost gave it up.
