No matter what you think of him now, it was good times.


That's what I do. I gripe and I know things.

I was finishing undergrad at App when he started and then grad school for his last 2 years of the first stint. Those were good times in varsity gym. I recall a packed house against Davidson, probably the year we went to the NCAA tourney. Those teams were fun to watch and very cohesive units.

Fortunate that my four years at App coincided with Buzz's first four. As much as we're known as a football school, basketball was my first love as a student. Still one of my favorite in-person sporting events was attending the SoCon Tournament in Greenville the year we won it.

Yep, that was a fun team and a great time period for App basketball for sure. I was at that packed Varsity game against Davidson, and at all of our SoCon tournament games when we won in Greenville, and then went to Nashville for our first round NCAA game against Ohio State which we lost badly. Even the Nashville loss was a fun trip.

It took two graphs to mention that Michael Jordan's roommate was Michael Jordan's roommate.

Based on my research over the last 20 years there is a mean of 1.2 paragraphs before this is mentioned with a minimum of 0 words before it was mentioned. The mode is 1 paragraph. :)


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

He gave us a few good seasons. Too bad his wife was in the car with the engine running.

Jan was actually in the driver's seat with the engine racing! :evil:


If it happens to the Apps, it happens to me!
