Yeah, local guy out of Columbus Brookhaven HS that walked on at OSU, and parlayed his opportunity into a Biletnikoff award, and was a top ten draft pick.

Still holds the school record for TD receptions in a season.

RIP Jim Nabors.   Just an overall great character, whether as Gomer Pyle or any of his other roles, and adored here in Indiana for signing 'Back Home Again...' before the Indy 500 for 30+ years.   He's not even from Indiana.

Wow really, he's not from Indiana?  I guess I just assumed he was!

Born in Alabama, alum of U of Alabama, lived mostly in SoCal/Hawaii in later life.  I'm guessing his connection with Florence Henderson (a Hooiser) who also sang before the Indy 500 may explain how Nabors started singing in the early 70s.

Longtime beat writer Jeff Washburn, the man who covered Purdue Sports for the Journal and Courier for many many years, passed away on Wednesday.

A good write up in the Indy Star:

RIP Dick Enberg.   Helluva broadcaster, great range in several sports.   A CMU and IU alum.  I met him at Al McGuire's funeral of all places.  He later did a one man play, about McGuire for several years, his longtime friend and broadcast partner.  I still associate him w Tennis, the Rose Bowl w Merlin Olsen and the Angels, and Padres.  I know he did UCLA hoops pbp during the Wooden era.

Dolores O'Riordan, former lead singer the Cranberries died today at 46.  Rough stretch for 90s rock personalities.  I always thought her voice was much better than the band ahe played in.   One of many females lead vocalists that I've dug over the years.

R.I.P. Joe Tiller.  You revolutionized the B1G passing game, made Purdue relevant again, took us to our second Rose Bowl, gave us a shot to win every game, kept us entertained with your dry wit, and had one heluva c@ckbroom on your upper lip.  You are missed.  :'( :'( :'(
Len Dawson revolutionized the Big Ten passing game, and Purdue has been the leader in this department for probably most of the years, since then.

Bob Griese
Mike Phipps
Gary Danielson
Mark Herrmann
Jim Everett
Kyle Orton
Drew Brees

One of those baseball players from my youth, the kind you never forget, despite a thoroughly unremarkable career has died.    The man with professional sports' greatest hairdos,  RIP Oscar Gamble.
