    Default RIP Lute Olson

    I'm sure mods will move this. Sad day for Cats fans, and basketball fans everywhere.

    Stepping out of exile to simply say... RIP Lute.

    One of the few dudes willing to play GU back when the big teams avoided us or would only play us on their home courts.

    I loved watching the Cats in Lute's heyday. Damn they were good.

    Sad news. My heart goes out to his family. He was the face of college basketball for me when I first became interested in it. He is on my short list of MBB greats.

    The best.......arguably top 10 CBB coaches all time. Inarguably, the best looking one.

    Before I became a hardcore Gonzaga fan, I was a hardcore Arizona Wildcats basketball fan. RIP Lute, March 31st, 1997 will live on in my heart forever.
