1. RIP Rick

I'm a St. Louisan by birth and have followed the Saint Louis Univ. Billikens men's basketball program for many years and very closely over the past ten years or so. Rick did a terrific job building that program up to where they won an NCAA Tourney game last year and nearly knocked out a one seed. I listened to many interviews he gave over the years and he was a well-educated and thoughtful guy who could go on and on about a variety of topics.

He was pretty eccentric and had a terrible obsession with food. He could tell you about restaurants in hundreds of cities across the country. Billiken fans and college basketball fans will miss you, Big Rick.

6. This day seriously sucks.

Majerus was a great coach, a very funny person, and a unique man. He made the game fun and was a positive influence in many ways. He will be missed.
