Congrats to all, especially Mr. Faloughi. Of course we need him now more than ever, with the lack of depth at OLB.

I'd say it was about time to give Faloughi a Scholly. These preferred walkon's could be playing at some other school on scholarship.

Huge congratulations to Reuben. Everything I've read about him suggests that this scholarship award was well deserved. I wonder if this might inspire a new poem from him and, if so, I'd love to read it.

Go Dawgs!
