CC. I'm sorry for your loss.

Its sad that these lessons hit home only when something like this happens. Drinking only seems to go terribly wrong when people are irresponsible. Or someone s left. I hope that we can all learn something from this terrible tragedy.
As a college student, who does sometimes partake in partying and drinking, I can say this truely scares the hell out of me.

A buddy of mine was at a bar in Milwaukee, was kicked out for fighting with his friend, began walking home by himself, almost unable to walk and went missing on Friday night. MPD pulled his body out of the river this morning. RIP man, we will miss you.


Dude a girl I work with was/is friends with the guy who he was fighting with and so she was talking a bit about the story today at work. Sorry to hear that about your friend man.


Man I feel horrible for that guy. I can't imagine how he's feeling. I mean he's got to feel some responsibility, even though he shouldn't at all.

Went to the wake today. Like I stated earlier, I didn't want condolences, only for those to keep his family and roommates in their thoughts and that was the most difficult part, watching my good friends cry like babies. That is just not an easy sight for me.

alcohol is usually the "reason" why people do stupid thing at parties/bars etc. but if you ask me it has a lot more to do with who you surround yourself with that includes family and friends...I drink a ton when I'm in Wisconsin...I will never deny that...it's a lifestyle when I go home to small town Wisconsin...but living in Omaha I have had maybe a total of 5-10 beers and that includes when family has been here...I just don't see the need to do it while I'm here unless I meet some more friends or my friends come to visit...if it wasn't for me going home and seeing my friends...I probably wouldn't have much of a reason to drink...

it does feel good knowing that I realize it's more of a social thing then a need of mine...and Coach...that's awesome that you talk to people...it's sad that people are in denial so bad they are afraid to open up about their problems...and alcohol is used as a safety net for some people...I took an alcohol and other drugs class in college and we had speakers almost weekly and I learned more from that class my senior year then I did in almost any other class since everything they talked about pertained to people's lives on a daily basis...I would recommend taking a class such as this to anyone...whether you drink or not

When my sister was 18, she almost died because she consumed to much alcohol in a little amount of time. Since then, being 18 and graduating high school, I find it best for everyone if I just do not drink at all. Idiotically, my sister still drinks... and drives.


I have 4 friends in high school who decided it would be cool to drink 2 bottles of vodka in about 15 minutes. Two of them almost died and they all got kicked out of school. All four of them still drink.

A friend at UWM this year came within ten minutes of dying after doing shots for the first time. Two weeks later checked her facebook and saw pictures of her partying it up like nothing happened.

Im not condemning everyone who parties and drinks sometimes but my point is 1) If its really so much fun that you have to do it, at least dont be stupid about it. 2) Know your limits and learn from your mistakes.



I made a pretty big mistake one time and drank almost an entire liter of jack daniels by myself in 20 minutes after drinking beer all day. Happy to still be alive and extremely glad I have friends who took care of me. Now just because I made a mistake with alcohol doesn't mean I'm going to completely stop drinking, you learn from those mistakes and press on. Kind of like when I broke my jaw snowboarding, I let it heal then went right back out that winter, I wasn't going to let one accident/mistake keep me from doing something I enjoyed that can be responsibly and safely enjoyed.

before graduation this year our local cop (yes theres only one in our town) set up this thing in our gym for the juniors and seniors. his best friend died in a drunk driving accident when he was fresh out of high school, and he had his family come talk first hand about what its like, seeing a normal kids mom and sister and the effect it has on people up close is eye opening. after that he had a guy that was currently in the county jail talk to us. the guy was just golfing with his buddies, had a few, thought he was okay to drive, rolled his truck on a back road on the way home, he lived, his best friend died. he talked about having to live with that every day of his life. i know me or most of my close friends never drink or drive, but i have no doubt that assembly stopped at least a few people from doing it. i think thats one of the benefits of having a young cop so tight with the community where he sets something up like that for us kids to see, not being ignorant preaching the don't drink thing because like he said he knows kids were going to do it. condolences to the family and friends of the guy who died though, thats really tragic.

As some of you know on here I do not drink and have not for 7 years. Beer and me were not very nice to each other. I do speaking engagements on my history at detox centers and it never ceases to amaze me that there are people in there that laugh at me. I get frustrated though when I go back and see the same people. One guy was even brought there all cut up from an accident and proceeded to laugh saying that it was the other drivers fault. People can drink who cares, but be smart about it!


I couldn't agree with your last statement more Coach..
They can't stop me...even if they stopped me
