He was a dirty recruiter.  He got UNC put on probation for his recruiting.  He was working there for his old H.S. science teacher/football coach Butch Davis.

Yep.  I'm sure he was dirty at OU too.  Leopard doesn't change his spots.

Lou Henson, who coached at Illinois for two decades, including reaching the Final 4 in 1989 (with probably the best team in the country) before being upset by Michigan, dies at 88

He took quite a beating from Tom Cruise.  Great role in that film.  He was out 'West' mostly, and had a ranch near Greybull, WY for awhile.  My Dad would take us bird hunting near there when we'd visit.  I actually dragged my wife pheasant hunting one time.  He said that Brimley lived in town but had this big ranch to the north that he'd work.  I think he sold it some time ago.

He was one of those guys who looked old and looked the same since I was a kid.  Wow.

I loved how he'd say "diabeetiss" and he was the Quaker Oats guy.....but he was mostly an all-time great character actor.  Despite sticking out and being very distinct, he always did a great job.

Rickey Dixon, maybe OU's best-ever cornerback, member of the College Football Hall of Fame, died of ALS (suspected to have been induced by multiple concussions) today at age 53.
