It's supposed to mean more on the mountain.Racenut, I understand your concerns and agree with most of your points. Here are a couple of thoughts:
I must say that I am on ASOR every day and listen to every podcast and press conference and I hear a lot of sports news, but I hear nothing about the spiritual progress of players or what spiritual themes are being shared as we did with HCHF the past several years. In fact, I see more spiritual conversation and references on the Auburn Twitter threads than any of LU'S sports news or chats. I really have no desire for LU to becoming a national power in sports without the accompanying spiritual fabric. Wake Forest started as a Baptist school, Duke as a Methodist school but you would be hard pressed to find any evidence of that foundation today. I really hope and pray that Liberty does not go down that road.

My thought is in line with PH: listening to all the professional wife beaters and coke heads give “glory to gahd” in photo ops has diluted it to the point I don’t wanna hear it.Your intelligence is inversely proportional to your height
It also may be a regional thing, but to me it comes across as totally disingenuous.

By the way, Matt and co. are without peer in the production of collegiate events or features. I'm talking about post game/race interviews or pressers that the general public consumes. What is said unrehearsed when a mic is shoved in your face. Who do we credit when we get that podium? We should all be ready to give an account for the joy that is in us.Just because he attended Liberty and is sponsored by them does not automatically mean he's in a place spiritually where those kind of sound bites are natural or right for him. I don't know where he is spiritually but I'd rather he not state an obligatory "Glory to God" if that's not what he naturally feels after a big win. Pray for him is all I can say and that God gets the glory regardless of what the guy says.
