Not exactly an obituary but two students lost their lives while skulling on Little Wall Lake north of Ames, Iowa, about one-week ago. There were gusty winds and 40 degree waters. It seemed incredible that they were out there. Here is their leader's explanation: ISU Crew Club president recounts events leading up to fatal accident (msn.com)

Slick Leonard died.  One of the most colorful characters from ABA history.   Coached the Pacers to a couple ABA titles and was a Hoot as a color guy on later Pacers NBA broadcasts.

You guys REALLY value your echo chamber.

I think he made it into our Big Ten Hall of Fame back on the old scout page, when that was a thing

As a junior, Keyes scored 19 touchdowns (13 rushing and six receiving) to set the Purdue season record and led the nation with 114 points. The next season, he became the first Boilermaker to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season.

Keyes saved some of his best games for the top opponents on Purdue's schedule. He led the Boilermakers to victories over Notre Dame in 1967 and 1968 when the Fighting Irish were ranked No. 1 and No. 2.
