We often hear people saying things like “I wish I had…” and you fill in the blank, but many times people are wishing for bigger and better things. I believe that much of the time, bigger usually means bigger problems.

It’s truly a special moment when athletes come together as a team to score an upset win that no one believed could ever happen. Appalachian State defeating Michigan in football last fall was one of those moments. (more…)
