    Not good news. Next man in though. Reeves is going to be the guy in the future... time for him to step up.

    That's too bad, but paying your respects to a lost loved one is a little more important than a football game - even this game.

    My condolences to Benton.

    We will miss Benton. He obviously feels that he needs to attend his Grandmother's funeral. I can respect that. Condolences to Benton and his entire family.

    Reeves did pretty well against NIU. Next man in.

    It might affect the team's chance of winning Saturday, but no question he made the right call. Family always comes first, before football, and before everything.

    Is Reeve's really 5'7"? If so, I'd bet I know who Stanzi will be targeting on Saturday.

    Re: Official: Benton out vs. Iowa

    Really, it is an individual call. Look at Favre...dad dies and has the game of his life. My thoughts and Prayers to TB, obvious this was his priority and I respect that. My question, funerals are somewhat arbitrary as to when you have them. If a close relative is playing D1 ball why schedule it to interfere with this.

    Tell me you're kidding. My grandfather's funeral was three weeks ago. I wouldn't have expected my parents, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and family friends to adjust their schedule to have a funeral so I could play in a football game.

    Wow, your priorities are way different than mine.

    I agree. I wouldn't have missed a game when I was playing for a funeral. But at the same time I ain't going to look down on someone who does, to each his own. TB feels he needs to be home so thats what he needs to do, others might not feel that way. There is no right or wrong way to do things in this situation.

    I obviously have never played but I would agree. I wouldn't have missed a game for a funeral either, especially one as important as this. But to each their own and I wouldn't fault anyone for it.
