I think of it myself.  I mean, what if I transferred into Burley and I was one of four people?  I mean, it’s a lot of eyes on me, and there were a lot of eyes on those four guys, and they had a little starch in their backbone.  I didn’t realize at the time, although I respected them, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized what they were going through.  And it took some guts to do that.  And I can — I know how I would feel.  I mean, so, yeah.  They did it, and they were four great examples, too, because they were really good people.  And that was important.
