"You Ain't Hurt, Get Up!"

 Meet Asia Lampkin and Darshena Marion, two student trainers who followed Coach Prime from the Jackson State University to the University of Colorado.  

Coach Prime's team posted a positive video about two young Jackson women finding their way in the world.  He could have left them behind here but no, he paid for them to follow him to Boulder.  The two ladies contrast their experiences as students at the two schools in a positive way (Sorry haters, no trashing JSU) for the first half of the video before talk turns to training.  It is quickly apparent they are apostles of Coach Prime's tough love message that he preaches to his players.  Enjoy.

This has got to be one great experience for those two. I have been on both those campuses and it's like night and day. JSU has so little and Boulder lacks for nothing. It really makes you reflect on the huge accomplishments
so many have made at JSU in spite of the lack of facilities and support that university receives. They both seem to appreciate the opportunity Coach Sanders has given them and I'll bet they are two of the hardest working trainers the Buffs have ever had. Good luck to them.

Good for them! It was probably hard for them to make such a bold move. There are much better places than Jackson for sure.

Bless their hearts, they found a way out of Missippi.

Soon they are going to be wearing Chaco's and listening to Yonder Mountain String Band. That's how Boulder rolls. (sarcasm)

Sounds like JSU’s alumni need to open their wallets and fund this beloved school.

Good for them! Congrats and keep it up ladies!

8:58 JSU's alumni who have reached the age when they can "open their wallets" are mostly retired teachers or social workers depending on SSI and PERS. Very few retired doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc. the big donors. JSU simply hasn't been set up that way. Compared to a university with the resources of U. of Colo. it's a junior high school. That won't change soon. Coach Prime saw it with his own eyes.

From whom? The state? The alumni? Suddenly you sound like Chokwe whining that the state doesn't fund the city.

Who in their right mind choose to live in Mississippi when you can live in Colorado ?

10:56 Uh it is called Jackson STATE University for a reason. It's run by the state not it's alumni. DUH.

Even Parchman STATE penitentiary is run by the state not it's alumni. DUH

Get Chokwe off your mind please. Thank you.

11:01 While Colorado has nice scenery, it too is turning into a liberal shithole with the influx of the left coasters. They are shutting down hunting seasons while also bitching about too many wild animals too close to their homes. The people "from Colorado" are hating what is happening to their state. They are calling is Calirado.

A couple of knuckleheads are snidely asking what trainers do. Well, since you obviously know how to use a computer, try google or Youtube. Not giving you an opportunity to do what you want to do so badly, which is trash everything and everyone.

JSU's loss..........CU gain. Get out of MS ASAP and more upside anywhere.

It took a lot of courage to pack up and move....Congrats to these two students!

Kingfish: Have you forgotten? This blog, if nothing else, is nothing more than a venue for trashing everything and everyone. If not for that, why would it exist? And you'd have to find a real job. A real job where you couldn't ask for donations...Unless you worked the corner at St.D.

The questions about what these female students do or did are legit questions.

It's my understanding that a student-trainer is a student enrolled in a health-science or physical education program of study. Those programs may offer a few students on-field exposure to athletics and general exposure to such areas as health, body conditioning, healthy eating, first aid and under direction of professionals, responding to minor injuries during contests.

When one of these students graduates, it's highly unlikely that they will accompany coaches who accept cross-country job opportunities, as the student-graduates have no certification of expertise or marketable profession at this point.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
