    Nice KO Story

    Did not see this posted elsewhere. ISU's Okoro plays through family tragedy - Times Union

    It's going to take a while for me to not think KO means Osemele.

    Re: Nice KO Story

    Very cool story, thanks for sharing.

    Out of curiosity and I've seen it written this way by multiple posters.....why "KO" instead of "NO"? I know when pronouncing his name, it begins with the "K" sound, but his initials are still "NO"

    He uses the initials KO.

    I may be completely wrong here, but I think the N is silent. His first name is close to Kerwin, which I believe is what he has gone by, and as mentioned the KO comes from his Twitter name.

    Got it - not a Twitter guy, so I had no idea. Thanks.

    Dryburn - that's what I was trying to "say" when I indicated knowing his name begins with the "K" sound. - insinuating the "N" is silent.

    This.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”
