Heartbreaking: A&M DT buried two-month-old daughter Wed.

Charles Ross, Tommy Sanders, Isaiah Golden AP

You want some perspective on the game of college football in general and the Alabama-Texas A&M game specifically?  Here it comes.  In spades.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, the two-month-old daughter of A&M defensive tackle Isaiah Golden died suddenly and unexpectedly earlier this week.  The cause of death for Avery Golden, who was born July 9 of this year, was not given.

The little girl was laid to rest Wednesday.

Whether or not Golden (pictured, right) plays against the Tide Saturday has yet to be determined, the Express-News says.  Rightly so, that decision will be left solely to the discretion of the true freshman defensive lineman.

I simply can’t fathom burying a child, let alone being able to fight through that grief to play in a football game, so God bless Golden regardless of what he chooses.  Thoughts, prayers and condolences to Golden, the little girl’s mother and her family as they work through heartbreak of unspeakable proportions.

    Though I have had to deal with deaths of very young children, it is never easy and it is devastating to the parents. My family and I are praying for Isaiah and his family at this time.

    Sincere condolences to Isaiah and his family. May God give you peace in the midst of such a great loss of Baby Avery.

    I can relate to what he is going through. Though the circumstances are likely different, my wife and I lived through this hell last year.

    My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with him and his family

    Certainly adds a huge dose of perspective to the hype surrounding this game.

    Grace & peace to those young parents.

    My sister and her husband lost their first child, one year after they were married. The sorrow is so great and I still see pain in their eyes from time to time.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the parents and family.

    Life is fragile. The tiniest among us are the most fragile of all. My heart goes out to the parents.

    It sure helps us all put the game we love so much into better perspective.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Golden family.

    Such a heartbreaking situation. May God be with Isaiah Golden and his family as they try to cope with their tragic loss.

    I can’t even imagine the pain he feels. I would be devastated if i were in his situation. My heart and prayers go out to him and his family.

    Also, anybody that would give a thumbs down to people offering their condolences to this young man and his family is absolute garbage and I would love to meet you in a dark alley someplace to give you a real thumbs down.

    I am sorry to hear of this. May all Isaiah’s friends, family, and teammates surround him in support during this time. Good people here on this blog who posted some really good things from their hearts.

    nick: I will join you in the dark alley and watch your back, or wherever you need me. Slime who post negatives, absolute slime.

    This is a terrible story that I heard about this morning. They radio did say that he plans on playing but who knows….

    I couldn’t walk in that situation let alone play football. I’m not a religious person at all but prayers go out to that family.

    This is heartbreaking news. I find it ridiculous that all these posts in here have people giving a thumbs down. So what if you hate A&M, this kid and his family and late daughter deserve more respect than that
