    Mods change thread title? Washington Post rescinded its note that Wooden has passed.

    Wiki referenced the Washington Post.

    Wiki is a fine source as long as you look at the SOURCE behind what Wiki states. All the best articles include exhaustive footnotes.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:John_Wooden (Bottom of page)

    Wiki used to be utter crap, but have improved tremendously. I guess they figured the Washington Post is a reputable source?

    I did mean to include a link to the Post as well, which was my mistake.

    How the hell does the Washington Post misreport a death? That's horrible

    The #1 legend in college basketball history. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

    The state of Indiana will drape itself in black bunting when Coach Wooden dies, which I hope is not soon.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    I usually am not too upset when people die well into their 90s, just because, we should all be so lucky... but there was always something comforting about seeing Wooden in the stands. I hope to see him there again.
