The idea of people belonging to one religion is a lost ideal. It also possesses dictatorial traits, not to mention that it would completely kill freedom of will.

’Dogs aim to improve defense

They weren’t much better in pass defense (No. 116, 257.85 ypg) or rushing defense (No. 118, 225.4 ypg).
So understand that, when returning members of that unit are interviewed during these hot days of August training camp, they speak in almost theuraputic-like terms, as if they were “cleansing” themselves of the woes suffered from the ’06 season.
Above all, they talk with much optimism about things getting turned around, how a “4-3” alignment designated by new coordinator Tommy Spangler and his aides can be the bencmark of better days to come in Tech Nation.
