Best of luck NH, sorry on behalf of nucky, Viggo, Ross and the other degenerates.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
Let us know if you ever hear back from Hollis.
We have the best AD in the world. Here are his responses (he replied 3 separate times -- I'll condense them into one):
Thank you for sharing your story with me. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do or send (and where to send) to assist through the Regional games. Note, I said games.
Would love to help increase the smile on your dad’s face and a twinkle in his eye as he watches us beat Duke!
Letter made Red Cedar Message board, by the way!
And … last email, I promise … has brought me to tears at least 10 times as I think about your dad and mine (who I miss very much). You are an amazing person.
People should warn me before they cut onions, dammit. And in case any of you guys wondered whether Hollis read tRCMB, well, now ya know.
Brief update, because it's all I know right now -- my dad made it through the night. Family is still gathering. I'm still pulling for the Duke game. Gotta hope. Thanks for all the kind words. GO WHITE! (Because I know my dad is saying "GO GREEN!")
Thank you, Denicos.
This guys gets it.
It is hard to be the biggest douche bag on here, but you are in a class by yourself.
That's awesome. Your dad went to a great high school too. Bearcats go.
If Hollis was a true RCMBer, his response would have been "pics of your dad's nurses or GTFO."
tRCMB has managed to showcase the best and worst of humanity in this one thread.

No if Hollis was a true RCMBer his response would have been "pics of sister and nurses or gtfo"
The first time MSU basketball aired in France the French surrendered to Tom Izzo just to be safe.
Thanks for posting. We have the best AD in the country. Also, (and especially) best wishes to your father, you, and your family. In the final tally, a man is judged not by his successes, but by how well he was loved. Sounds like your father lived his life very, very well.
I'm shocked you didnt take the opportunity to drop a "FIRE ROUSHAR!", "PUT IN NICKLES!", "WE NEED A BIG MAN COACH", "GIANT SPARTY STATUE" etc.
The feelings you expressed in the letter are why I choose to be and will always be proud to be a Spartan. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for sharing this NH.
How some people can down vote this is beyond me.
They must lead miserable lives.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
I know that the timing of "when to leave TN to go be with my dad" was one of the toughest and most regrettable decisions I have ever made. Everyone kept telling me, "you have time, no need to come up yet". I had work issues, a lot going on. My dad had even told me "work is too important, Im going to be around a while"
Sunday before he passed, the "rattle" hit. I should have left that night. Instead, I waited to see if he was better the next day. My mom had to move him to respite that day. Still, they all said, "get here, but no rush".
I planned on leaving Tuesday morning, but my sister called and we decided I would just leave after dinner and pick her up on my way through. As some of you know, we got there minutes late. The decision to wait cost me a last chance to see my dad.
Long way of saying, take every opportunity you can. Not just SinNH, but all of you.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
That's an average Tuesday around here.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
Hey Vic, fuck you you dusty old fart. That is all.
That's nothing. Stop trolling for up votes.
- Vegas Vic.
(Very cool. If you do get one more "go green" from him, don't blow it and answer back something other than "go white". Wishing you and the family strength and comfort through this.)
Cool thread. I'm not even going to try to be funny and tarnish it.
Nobody had to. You did.
Then don't read the thread, asshole.
"The Vegas Vic douchebag post of the day... brought to you by Vegas Vic!"
tRCMB - Where MSU fans eat their own.
brought a tear to my eye.
God bless the OP's dad!
Also, Go WHITE!
We are the SPARTANS and They are NOT!!! [spartan 2]
Great thread!! Incredible story and thanks for posting it OP!!!!
Now to Vegas Dick and Viggo - if you're not already banned, rest assured I'm sending you two idiots to timeout next time I'm on my desktop. And if you are already banned, I'm gonna ban you both again because I can. You miserable bastards just don't get it and are not Spartans in my book. With all due respect - and I'm saying with all due respect - go fuck yourselves.
