    Though he's coached teams to the Super Bowl and the Rose Bowl and won countless accolades during his 30-year career, Brad Childress was transported back to a humbler place Sunday afternoon: Marmion Academy's sophomore theology class....

    I don't know that allowing God to steer your life would be a good idea, unless your aware of who God really is.

    "You have to be unafraid ... to do the uncomfortable things" This is a very good quote and why I like Childress so much, you can actually learn something from what he says, unlike Tice.

    Definetly a different type of read, which I can say I enjoyed very much.



    With strong faith in your higher power, in my case God, all things are possible if you let him guide you.
    I truly believe this.

    And Ned, I have it on good authority that God is a Viking fan... ;D

    being fired from University of Illinois in 1985 and Northern Arizona in 1989.
    I was not aware of this. What did he get fired for and was he the head coach?

    Perhaps when he was in Arizona he kept recruiting all of Illinois castaway bad players.
