Nearly two-dozen University of Minnesota students demonstrated at an appearance by University of Minnesota alumnus and longtime NFL coach Tony Dungy at Mariucci Arena on Tuesday afternoon. Dungy played football for the Golden Gophers in the early 1970s and has coached for numerous NFL teams, most notably as head coach for the Indianapolis Colts, champions of Super Bowl XLI. He was honored by the University of Minnesota Alumni Association with an Outstanding Achievement Award presented as part of a celebration of the TCF stadium deal.
Dungy sparked a minor controversy in March when he was honored at the Indiana Family Institute and in a speech said he supported a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and a ban on marriage-like benefits. "We're not trying to downgrade anyone else. But we're trying to promote the family -- family values the Lord's way," Dungy said at the dinner last month. His statements generated criticism among LGBT groups in Indiana and the nation.

You mean I caught them all? Never a shortage when gramps took me fishing! Mmmmmm, bullheads... :)
I recently read an article about Dungy in S.I. He’s truly an incredibly classy person. You may need some tissues:
THAT many? Wow, what a crowd! I wonder how many were in the crowd who came expressly because they DID like him? I guess they were not worthy of mention.
This goober can't seem to see the inconsistencey in her own statement. Has the University REFUSED to honor any of Ms. Hays compatriots? I seriesly doubt it, so why fuss when someone with a DIVERSE opinion is honored?
Maybe it looked like this.
It’s apparently been very windy and very low humidity up there. And there was a massive blow-down of trees there seven or eight years ago, and the evnviro-whackos wouldn’t let logging companies go in and clean it up, so there’s assloads of fuel to keep the fire going.
I remember the blow down story. Pity that some enterprising paper mill couldn’t make a few zillion rolls of Brawny Towels for Sheryl Crow.
I seen Coach Dungy last week in Indianapolis. He has a great message to share and does it with great experiences from his past. Yes he is a classy man! He brought the trophy with him, too!!
But the libs don't mind the gov. in our bank accounts!
Maybe ping tomorrow!
They couldn’t even get 24 measly people? Tony should be proud people like that are opposing him. These are the left wing nuts that want to destroy the family by ruining marriage and aborting the children. If only there were more Tony Dungys in the world. Tony is a class act, and I root for the Colts along with the home team every year.
Now, supporting traditional marriage or having certain religious views against homosexual behavior will result in harrassment by homosexuals and their allies, no matter how they are presented.
