Doug is just the All-Time Greatest Redbird!!!!

At the Taste - there were tent cards saying something about over 20 players who have scored 1,000 points will be at the game on Saturday. Other than that - I have not heard one word about this promotion.

If only we could hire the 1st African-American coach again. Will 's '74-'75 roster included 6 NBA draftees (there were 8 rounds then. ISU also had 4 Parade All-Americans - that meant Top 25 Players in the country. Didn't include Cyrus Mann, which is shocking.

I first became aware of Doug when he was a sort of pudgy 8th grader at Benton. As a 6'2" Jr., he was the 3rd option behind 6'9" Rich Yunkus and 6'10 Greg Fustin. The South Seven was loaded t6hen, With Joe C. Meriweather at Carbondale and Nate Hawthorne at Mt Vernon, both of whom had long NBA careers. Greg Starrick was at Marion. Future Laker Dick Garrett at Centralia. Benton's Yunkus held the Georgia Tech career scoring record for about 15 years, until Dennis Scott came along.

The word then was that U of I coach Harv Schmidt recommended Doug to Jim Collie, because Harv had the Nicks, rat Alvin O'neal, etc.

Info on who is coming back for 1,000 point scorers.

Wonder what conversations they will have with Lyons and Dietz on the status of the program?

Great read. Hard to imagine we had 4 parade all Americans at once. Crazy!
