As a Kentucky fan, might want to get ready to see Glory Road for a while.

Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who knew him. What he did in the 70's set the standard for college basketball today and redefined the game.

In '66 a bunch of us in my fraternity house put $5.00 into a pool for the NCAA tourney. I drew Texas Western and immediately wrote that off as a lost 5 bucks.

Lucky draw for me.

That's very sad news. As WVR pointed out, his actions redefined the game, and will forever shape the future of basketball. It is a sad, sad day in basketball.
