Iíd love sk to be retired but his number is a number a lot of recruits might want. I dunno, I donít care much about this issue. Not that huge of a deal to me
Not sure I care too much either but Fortson is first on my list in the last 30 years. Logan and SK might be next. I don't have a good handle on 50 years ago.

Fortson was I think a two time All American (whether 1st, 2nd, or 3rd team) and would have been 3 time had he played his last year...maybe national POY. SK was one time. I think Logan was one time.

It's not even a comparison to me. Retire Fortson...then we can talk about Logan and SK. Going back 50 years IDK.

I think I was 7 or 8 that season and I had my Fortson jersey on and had to watch them lose to Mississippi State on a concession stand TV at my brother's baseball tournament. I was a wreck when it was over. I remember watching games before that and I knew all the players but that game was the first time a loss really stung me.

Well it's about what they did at UC not after, IMO. Steven Logan was a huge part of me getting into bearcat basketball as a kid. Grew up going to games but he came in right before my teenage years and that's where I ended up becoming a fan for life. Not a lot of guys make that impact on a fan base. But I agree SK jersey would have to go up too if you retired his.

I was in college. I think they had a juco, Dontae Jones. Dang, say what you want about many early exits under our previous coach but man we were so close so close. West Virginia banking in a three-quarter court shot at the buzzer or whatever. That UCLA game was just tragic. And this Mississippi State game as well.

Went to watch Troy again last night in the G League in Canton. Splurged for a courtside box right next to the visitors bench. Troy played really well, putting up 14 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. 2 of 5 from three. He was very effective in the pick and roll with Byron Mullens. After the game he was nice enough to say hi and snap a picture with me. Good dude.
