it sucks when people die and all, but it seems like this is being made a bigger story than it needs to be
If you don't follow college basketball much you probably wouldn't know much about him... But he's had a very successful run at Wake Forest and while they've struggled a bit the past few seasons he just locked up a top notch recruiting class (3rd in the nation I believe) for next year... He's one of the most well-liked coaches in college basketball, but he doesn't get as much publicity as say a Coach K or a Roy Williams.
Very sad to see. Just when he was getting the program back to the top, it's horrible to see this happen to Skip.
