Yes, I saw that on Fox News. Nice move coach.

BUT, what does that tell us regarding the upbringing of college age kids?! It tells me there is little respect, poor parenting skills or responsibility, an emerging culture of not caring...mixed with a strong sense of entitlement.

College basketball coaches should not have to teach basic principles that should and must be taught at home when kids are growing up. There is no excuse, IMHO.

I totally agree. Good story, but sad it is a story.

Wink Was This Really Necessary?

I find it extremely sad that a college coach found it necessary to lecture his basketball players on how to conduct themselves during the playing of the national anthem!! They should have been taught that lesson long ago by their parents.

I recall taking my children to Arlington National Cemetery, in Viginia, when they were young (6 & 8 years old). We walked through, observing all the points of interest and historical significance. As we were almost finished, with the exception of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, I noticed a military funeral in progress. I brought my family to a halt, we faced the funeral party and stood in silence. My son, the younger of my children got a bit restless. I squeezed his arm, pretty hard, and instructed him to be still and stand at attention. I also told him that this man died to provide him with the freedom to live his life in a free country. The least he could do is give that man the respect and attention of a few minutes of his time. My son NEVER forgot that moment. At 6 years old, my son understood what this coach was trying to beat into those 18 to 21 year old young men!! Sad. Very sad!!

Am I proud of my son?? YOU DAMN RIGHT I AM!! He is now the man providing that freedom today!! Hoo Ah!
