Former GRIZ DL from the 2001 National Championship team recently passed away. Herb is the 3rd DL from that team to pass away along with Tim Bush and Kurt Colter. Here is the link to help out his family https://www.gofundme.com/f/herb-fernandez-and-family

Looks like lots of people "bragging" about their donations on the gofundme page.

It's amazing that 3 DL guys are gone from that team.

I don't understand what you mean about bragging on the page. Can you explain? Just curious.

The "joke" is in this thread. https://egriz.com/grizboard/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=85702

"Why nominate anyone when you can puff up big and brag about your own donation?"

Just saw where Montana Burgers is matching the next 10K raised.

It reminded me that my company (and many others) will match gifts to non profits. Don’t forget about your company’s matching gift program. I got mine to match my gift yesterday which has now inspired me to make another and get a match for that too.
Does this mean Montana Burgers is bragging?"

"Let’s all disclose the size of our, uh...donations. :lol:"

Got it. I didn’t see that thread, so the sarcasm went over my head.

In reading the Missoulian piece today about Herb was very touching. RIP Mr. Fernandez.

Good story. Sad.

I sure miss Trey Young - one of the hardest hitters ever to wear Griz colors.
Turn up the Eagles, the neighbors are listening.
