Coach Hep, etc.

First of all, as you've probably heard by now, IU football coach Terry Hoeppner died suddenly this morning from complications from a brain tumor. It was known that he was sick, but it was assumed that he would be back to coach again next season. Remember the Hoeppner family and friends; IU football team, campus, and fans; and former players under him; etc. in prayer. I just printed off several articles about it and I'll share them as I read them. Here's the main article about it from the Indianapolis Star, unread:

Here's an article about Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, a Christian, and his coming close to a no-hitter last week. Here's a quote from him about the one-hitter that he ended up with:

"It wasn't in the cards. God didn't want me to throw a no-hitter today, and that's fine. He allowed me to throw eight (innings) and one (hit). And I'll take that every time."

Next, another note about Cubs outfielder Cliff Floyd and his dad, whose health is improving:

Happy Father's Day: Cliff Floyd received good news regarding his father, C.C. Floyd, who is still in ICU at a Chicago hospital, but has improved considerably.

"He's looking good," Floyd said Sunday of his father, who apparently has clogged arteries. "It's a great sign -- no surgery [Monday]."

Floyd planned on seeing his father after Sunday's game, and then going to Texas with the Cubs later this week. He'll be back Friday to get an update on his father.

"He's getting a ton better, and I want to thank everybody for the prayers," Floyd said. "I think everybody pulling together picked him up."

This could've been a tough Father's Day for Floyd.

"I always have faith," he said. "Even though it was looking dim, you always have to have a light at the end of the tunnel to keep you going. He didn't look good. Having everybody around has made it better.

"I couldn't ask for a better Father's Day than today," he said.

Here's the article:

Here's a great article about Georgia football head coach Mark Richt and his family, who are Christians, leaving yesterday for a misson trip to Honduras. They're going to help at a hospital there started by a member of their church and run a soccer camp. Here's the article:

Also, an interesting article about rotator cuff injuries by MLB pitchers and treatment. Just a little FYI:

Lastly, the website for Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb and his Brandon Webb K Foundation. I found the site on yesterday's "The Daily": Here's the link to his site:
