Watched the press conference. Long choked up several times and Petrino was obviously upset. It's a terrible thing.

Prayers for Garrett and his family and friends.

My condelences and peace to the family, team, athletic department and Razorback Nation as a whole.  These losses of great young men have taken a serious toll on me from my previous career.  Far too many never got to grow up.  It is sad.  We have something else to play for now.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Springdale this year for the games.  That is where the team stays.  My kids did an expert job of stalking the players.  My 10 year old daughter got Garrett's autograph on her football and talked about how cool he was to actually talk to her and her little brother.  She was so excited at the game last night when he got in.  He played several snaps at fullback.  My kids are crushed by this.  All I can do is hug them. Hug yours tonight.

I cannot even imagine what it would feel like to lose 1 of my boys. My prayers are with Garrett`s parents, family, coaches, and teammates.

I was holding up pretty well (ok, just "alright") until I read this.  Just horrible.  My boys keep wondering why I'm hugging and kissing on them so much when I was just teaching my youngest proper technique on a forearm shiver and rip move this afternoon.

Its horrible to lose a Razorback.  Just terrible.  But his parents lost their child as well.  Not sure I could take it.

that was a tough presser to watch.

and tomorrow after school at CHS, there will be a rosary.  those who played there or went to school there no what a big deal the rosary is before games and no doubt garrett sat through numerous ones in that chapel.  that'll be a tough one.

Even our cold-blooded assassin of a coach was shaken up at the presser.  Tough week for everyone.

Did you go to Catholic?

Yeah, I remember going to rosary on Friday afternoons.  It will shake up that high school community as much as it does this team.  Those kids put him on a pedestal.

I never knew Garrett, but I knew Chad in high school.  Does anyone know how they were related?  He was class of '99.

Was checking CaringBridge and found this from some friends whose daughter is still impacted 2 years later...

If not for the love we have shared, it would be hard to conceive how any parent could deal with the loss of a child. Our hearts are heavy and we mourn with the Uekman's for their son Garrett.

But  we know how Michelle, and Danny, and Meagan will cope - the same way they helped us cope 2 years ago - through the kindness and support of family and friends who, through God's love and mercy, will continue to be there for them.

During the months that Mary was hospitalized, Michelle was one of the saintly women who stayed with Mary, allowing us to go home to eat dinner or get a night's rest. She and Meagan were so good with Mary, and you could feel their love when they walked in the room.

It is that same love that we know the Uekman's will experience in this tragedy.

We pray for God to give you the peace of heart that you will need. You know that we love you and will hold you in our hearts.

Jesus, we place our trust in You.

I have a class with Garrett this semester and was put into a group with him for a class project. He was quiet but always extremely respectful and humble as I'll get out. It's a crazy thing to think about that the guy you were at Mullins with talking to last week won't be coming back. One of the saddest days in Razorback history.

I remember them winning, but did not know he hit the winning bucket.  I read somewhere today about him being a great basketball player.  I was impressed with some of his blocks last night. 


Last night.  Sad day.  Hug your kids.

Oh I hope they try to picket the funeral. It'll be the last funeral they'll ever picket.
