Fair enough, I'll read them with an open mind. I'm also a U of Maryland alum, so I have a feeling I'll have a different outlook after reading the Lenny Bias article. That brings tears to my eyes to this day. I was in 9th grade when he died and my sister was in the same graduating class as Bias at Maryland.
