    College athletics disasters....

    Saw We Are Marshall and was trying to think of other tragedies. Other than our CC team, Marshall, and the recent baseball accident, I can't think of others...

    Ghoulish topic, but just curious what other tragedies have befallen other schools...

    Was it Evansville that lost the Men's BB Team in a plane crash (early 80's)?
    Also, more recently, an Oklahome State women's team maybe.

    I remember the day of the memorial services at Hilton Coliseum for the CC Team. It was a cold, gray, and windy day. The campus was pretty much empty. I thought I had class but when I got there it was canceled for the services. It really was one of those days where things did not feel right in the world. The next day I saw a picture of Bonnie Sons crying at the podium. I felt very sad about the entire situation.

    the University of Wyoming suffered an enormous tragedy as well with their cross country team. It hardly made a blip on the national news because it happened the week after 9/11. 8 athletes were lost in a head-on collison on US 287 south of Laramie... the other vehicle was driven by another UW student who was on the rodeo team....

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    The Baylor basketball murders. What a sad, messed up affair that was.

    EDIT -- RyCy04 beat me to that.
