    Kudos to NCSU for having an actual "Achiever" instead of a foppish socialist idealoque.

    Bill Cowher is an excellent role model for perserverance and hard work.

    would be nice if they mentioned that he did coach the steelers to a Super Bowl title. And maybe even quote what he said to the grads.
