Stanford has confirmed that Cardinal assistant coach and former Clemson and Los Angeles Raiders defensive line great Chester McGlockton died Tuesday evening after suffering a major heart attack. McGlockton was 42.

The Cardinal athletic department released the following statement:
Chester McGlockton, who has served on Stanford’s Football staff for the past two seasons, passed away overnight. He was 42 years old.

“Everyone in the Stanford Football family is deeply saddened by the passing of Chester McGlockton,” said Stanford head coach David Shaw. “For the past two seasons, Chester has been a valuable member of our football staff and a wonderful friend to us all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chester’s wife Zina and their two children.”

A native of Whiteville, N.C., Mr. McGlockton was in his second season on the Stanford coaching staff as a defensive assistant. A first round pick (16th overall) of the Los Angeles Raiders in 1992, Mr. McGlockton played 12 seasons in the NFL with the Raiders (1992-97), Kansas City Chiefs (1998-00), Denver Broncos (2001-02) and New York Jets (2003). He made all four of his Pro Bowl appearances while with the Raiders (1994, ’95, ’96 and ’97).

A three-year standout at Clemson, Mr. McGlockton earned his undergraduate degree from Tennessee-Martin in 2010.
A punishing defensive tackle, McGlockton was one of the anchors for Clemson's fearsome '89, '90, and '91 defenses, leading the ACC in sacks as a true freshman and finishing with 20.5 for his career. In 1991, McGlockton was named first-team all-ACC as the Tigers' No. 1-ranked rushing defense propelled Clemson to the ACC title--still the Tigers' most recent conference championship.

As a pro, McGlockton's best season came in 1994, when he earned one of his four Raiders Pro Bowl appearances by racking up a
a career-high 9 1/2 sacks with three forced fumbles and 48 tackles.

 "The thoughts and prayers of the Raider Nation are with the McGlockton family during this difficult time," said Raiders CEO Amy Trask.

McGlockton was inducted into the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame earlier this year.

Are you kidding me?  Because adam and eve sinned everyone and everything that had nothing to do with it gets punished lmao.  And you call that a just god?  your believes are so out of touch with reality and you dont even realize it,  please stop trying to justify your false believes on others and keep them to yourself.

So then how can luck and chance build up complex creatures. If I were to take apart a watch and then set each of the pieces in a box and start shaking them would it be likely that the original watch would happen? Also, when God created the world, everything that he created was perfect which he called good. The reason that we have suffering in this world is because Adam and Eve sinned against God. After that happened disease, death, violence, etc. came into the world.

everything was created by chance and luck same as you were.  If yor parents never met you would not be born, plus everything in this universe has the same elements, wether its microbes or the largest stars in the universe its not like were made of different materials that did not exist before we were here.  So to answer your question I do not think we were made from a divine deity.  But just think if we were how twisted and cruel this being must be, look at the world around us its pretty fkn cruel dont you think?  Just imagine this is just an example your a baby elephant and your having a great fkn day when a pride of lions decide to fck with you and your family and you get separated in the process, next thing you know your being eaten alive from the stomach first because its the softest and easiest part to tear in your body (by the way this can easily happen to a human also)  will you say thanks lord for your fkn blessing!  I think not.

republican man heaven and hell are not real and neither is the diety you call GOD.  If you study religion and also read the bible you will notice a trend, it is many different authors with different views on life (not god's words) therefore it contradicts itself in so many ways.  Now don't get me wrong if people live by some of the rules in the bible (not including wars for god like in the old testament or some parts in the koran) you will probably live a happy life, but the reality is there is no god.  Just look around you and notice the design of the world, no matter what you see from the smallest microbes to the largest whales every living creator eats each other.  Now tell me that is the work of a divine being and im going to call you dilusional my friend.  Just for once stop buying into all the BS youve been told all your life since you were a kid and think for yourself.  You really dont have to be religious in order to be a good person.  And this god of yours is pretty selfish dont u think?  He will send you to hell if you dont believe in him and his son even if you are a good man, I honestly wouldnt wana be near anyone like that to be honest.

Wow. Who would've guessed that a guy with the username "Republican Man" would also be a condescending, blowhard about religion.  Again, wow. That's just so surprising.  Now quick.... go and cheat on your wife with another man who happens to be your friends your children while you pay for your little rendezvous with stolen checks!  LOL
In other news... the Tea Party is simply the political arm of NASCAR fans.

In other other news... you can directly link the inversely proportional rates of weekly religious attendance by State (the higher it is) to lower education, higher crime, higher child mortality, higher government spending, etc. (And I’m not actually even kidding about that!)
