Remember the breaking news scrolled across the bottom of the screen that Sunday night...Sad news for Carolina

His passing set Carolina football back at least 10 years. Following Coach Joe, we had to suffer through the Spooky Woods and Fat Brad fiasco.

RIP Coach Joe.

No under Brad. Woods turned down a bowl game one year though.

Saw Sam Huff on TV over the weekend and reminded me of when he spoke at Williams-Brice memorial for Joe Morrison.

If I recall, it was a Sunday(?), and I was working at the Columbia Marriott. Coach Joe was in the hotel that morning, because I think it was the end of a big recruiting weekend(?). I shook his hand as he walked by. Later that day he died. (My memory is a little vague, but I think that's what happened) I remember how shocked I was.

It was a Sunday. I was on my way back to Newberry college and heard the news on the radio. I was absolutely stunned...

Wasn't he playing raquetball, and collapsed? I haven't thought about this in a long time!

Pyro, that was the "official" story. I heard another one that wasn't as flattering...

Well let's hear the unflattering story because I've never heard it.

Let's just say the story is that he went like every red blooded guy wants to go.

I remember my Dad getting the call from the Athletics office...I was in total shock when he told me. Sad day.
