Skip Prosser Dead at 56

I heard about this on the way to a gig last night. They were talking to an emotional Bob Huggins on 700WLW. Shocking. Crazy. A blow to college hoops, and the sports world in general.

Jesus.

College basketball is a stressful business, so I figured he had died from a heart attack even before I read the story. I feel so sorry for his family, and his friends. He was a good guy.

Anyone who coaches competitive basketball is a member of a fraternity. When someone in that fraternity falls, we all feel it. Rest in peace, Coach.

Major bummer. I liked that guy... I didn't know him and generally rooted against him, but it wasn't out of animosity. RIP Mr. Prosser. RIP.
