Stewart given a second chance, wants in hunt

Walter Stewart had things planned out. His days of playing football seemingly complete, Stewart was ready to start on a graduate degree and work his way into the coaching ranks.

Walter Stewart Named Big East Defensive Player of the Week

I had some issues yesterday with my computer that seemed very serious, but they weren't very serious and it turned out that I was overreacting. That has never happened before. So when you see a flurry of posts today, get your popcorn ready. I hate to use a TO quote there, but at the same time I liked it. Kind of like saying "LAWFIRM." during the Bengals game last night...

A sure sign that a football coach is reaching his players is when they begin to speak his language, i.e. utter his phrases. More importantly it's when the concepts are put to practical use.
