Just watched this on Outside The Lines. I think it's worth the 18:50.

That's good stuff. I have a whole new respect for Greg Schiano.

Son of a bitch.

What a kid and what a story.

I'm going to need a mop to clean up this puddle of estrogen I got all around my desk. I cried like a hormonal 14 year old girl.

Nice. It takes a man to admit that.

Isn't it incredible how many stories they're writing lately about what a SOB he is and how none of his fellow coaches can stand him?

I think I'd rather have him coaching a team than some elderly ass kisser with an eating disorder...

Incredibly nice young man. I had the chance to meet him in Tampa shortly after he signed there. My thought is he will walk again... I have no doubt.

Eric LeGrand retires from Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Paralyzed former Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand retired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, a little less than three months after his symbolic signing with the NFL team..

The contract that LeGrand received from the Buccaneers team now led by his former college coach, Greg Schiano, had no monetary value. LeGrand's No. 52 jersey remains available through the Buccaneers' website, with proceeds benefiting spinal cord research, and a book chronicling his life story is scheduled to be released in September.

"I've been blown away by the tremendous outpouring of support, both in Tampa Bay and nationally, through this whole thing," LeGrand said during a conference call. "Everyone's support has really motivated me more and more to get better. I grind hard every day to (achieve) my main goal -- and that's to walk again."

LeGrand said while he will be a "Buccaneer for life," he no longer wanted to occupy a roster spot that could be used for another player.

LeGrand broke two vertebrae and suffered a serious spinal cord injury in October 2010 during a kickoff return against Army. He became an inspiration to his Rutgers teammates, eventually being able to stand upright with the help of a metal frame.

LeGrand continues therapy and hopes to finish school next year before pursuing a career in broadcasting.

You're a third rate douche bag whom I've been sick of for a long damned time. You have about as much to contribute to society as a speck of pigeon shit on an aids tree on fire. Drink the fucking antifreeze already.

We'd much rather hear your story, which begins with your birth by spontaneous generation from the discarded tampon of a 14 year old Thai prostitute and ends with your death at the hands of jilted transsexual lover.
