Obituary : Joe Tiller, all-time winningest coach at Purdue, dies at 74

By | December 10, 2016

Joe Tiller, the legendary Purdue coach who ushered the spread offense into the Big Ten, has died at age 74. The university’s official football account confirmed Tiller’s passing on Saturday morning. Tiller died in Buffalo, Wyoming, where he lived.

Tiller was quoted — and credited — for bringing “basketball on grass” to the Big Ten. So much of what we see in spread offenses today was because of his systems and sport-wide influence. His brand of high-flying offenses worked in West Lafayette, Indiana, where he went 87-62 in 12 seasons. Tiller won eight or more games in six of those seasons.

Many Americans don’t even give a thought to our military actions when the anthem is played. They think of the other more important things that make America great. 
These are NOT political protests, they are civil rights protests.

The irony that you dont love the country your in….the Government is not the entire USA…its history people and everything about it is.

If you dont like it why are you here?

This country gave you a place that is not 3rd world.

So its ok to take from the USA but not give back honor and loyalty?

 No respect for our flag, means you do not like this country or the constitution. So just leave. An the Supreme Court got it wrong, desecrating the flag is not speech. It is destroying an object.

Love it! I hope our parish will follow suit! 
The kids have a right to free public education, they have a right to free speech, they however do not have a right to be on a school team…..otherwise I have the right to be in the mlb and want my millions…

It’s not a “requirement.” His statement reads they “expect” their student athletes to stand for the national anthem. That’s a big difference in definition and may be considered misleading.

Bingo! In case anyone is ‘wondering’ — these people are some of America’s BEST – because they’re not serving for the ‘money!’ Patriotism motivated them!

 Why is there such confusion about the proper way to be respectful to the US Flag and the National Anthem??? Perhaps the schools are no longer starting the day off with the Pledge of Allegiance. Maybe “Civics 101” and Citizenship is no longer being taught in school? I don’t know, but regarding The Star Spangled Banner, our national anthem, there is a United States Code that speaks directly to what the proper respect is:

Item #171. Conduct during playing 
“During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.
Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.

Persons in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the anthem and retain this position until the last note.
When the flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed there.”

It seems pretty clear about what the proper actions are to be during the playing of our National Anthem. Not doing so would be deliberately disrespectful.
