    An actual good news story

    The news lately usually depresses every time I read something or watch it on TV. It's nice to see a good story every now and then

    What an amazing gift he is giving to a total stranger. Cameron Lyle is a hero. Thanks for linking the story.

    If the NCAA was even a little proactive about presenting a "caring for the student athletes" front to the public they would latch on to something like this and without it being requested offer Lyle another year of eligibility.

    Of course that will never happen. They are such a bureaucratic mess that they even make government workers blush.
