Default More important than UC sports

Guys, as of late, I have decided that some of the bad hatred on this board is not worthy. We are all UC fans. As a UCat member and a Letterman in three sports, I love UC and I can not wait to see the next football game or basketball game. However, today I had to watch while my "baby" girl went through cancer surgery. It made me realize that there is more about bashing our school or our coach or our program or each other . It has made me put things in perspective. The reason that I am posting this is because I hope that you can put it into perspective too. I hope that all of you can remain passionate about UC sports and continue to support all sports but please keep your family above all of it. I will sign off saying that I love all of you guys.

Thank you all of you. I am sure the prayers worked. I am not a very sensitive guy but I have been doing my share of crying and praying sense she was diagnosed. No parent ever wants to see this happen to their children.

I appreciate the discussions on BCN, the humor, sarcasm, the debates, the updates. We have some very knowledgeable people here.

As for my daughter, she is being released today and has been given clearance to go back to classes on Tuesday. She will have to take medication the rest of her life but should be normal other than that. The biggest problem is one of her professors is giving her a zero on a test that she missed yesterday (those Bobcat ba$tard$). He would not allow her to take it early, will not allow her to take it late, and will not assign extra work to make up for it. She is a very smart kid and should be able to overcome that though.

Thanks again everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

We are still keeping you and yours in our thoughts and prayers. Appreciate the update.

Tell your daughter to complain to the department head about the insensitive ba$tard at that reknown school of communications and partying. I think the head might have something to say about a prof's lack of compassion. ****, I'd bet my next paycheck that there are students at Bobcat U getting tutored and extensions on dates all the time, so tell her to keep fighting - although unfortunately it's now two fronts.

Our best to your family and yours.

Great to hear she is going to be ok. Yes, nothing puts things in perspective quite like that. My thoughts prayers for now, and moving forward.

She did vomit quite a bit yesterday and we contribute it to one of the five medications she is on. We are taking her back to OU today to avoid the potential bad weather on Monday. Also, she wants to walk her class routes to determine how much time it will take her. She still can not turn her head or twist her neck but rather she twists her entire body to look in a different direction. She will start her radiation iodine treatment in 6 weeks. I hope that they can administer that in Athens so that she can avoid missing more classes. (Yes, I am disappointed that she did not choose UC but for her major it was probably the best choice and she does love it there). Thank you all for your kind words. Maybe the prayers can translate into a win of ND.

As an addition, my son does plan on attending UC.
