From Gampel to the Rent

UConn Coach Dan Hurley surely wanted it to turn out differently. The Husky’s head man had been pursuing Precious Achiuwa—a blue-chip forward from Florida—for some time, with the hopes of adding some more top-tier talent to a recruiting class already stocked with it. But what do they say about wanting? Earlier this month, Achiuwa announced […]

The Jason J. Connor Experience

I didn’t think I would be hitting this subject again this soon but the more I see, the more I feel a need to try to understand what I’m seeing, as well as try to explain my thoughts. Having been a baseball fan for nearly 35 years, and a White Sox fan for going on […]

I agree with Muck and Barn, when you actually sit down and think about it it is tough to do.

Former UCLA football coach Terry Donahue is recovering from surgery for an undisclosed form of cancer, the school said in a statement Tuesday. The 74-year-old Donahue, the winningest football coach in UCLA and Pac-12 history, will begin chemotherapy after recovering from surgery, the statement added. He underwent the procedure Friday at UC San Diego’s Jacobs Medical Center and was released Tuesday. No further details on Donahue’s condition were immediately known. Donahue’s family said through the school’s statement it “appreciates everyone’s well wishes, but requests privacy at this time.” In 20 years as UCLA’s head coach, Donahue led the Bruins to 13 bowl games, including four Rose Bowls, and five Pac-10 championships. He is the first coach in NCAA history to win a bowl game in seven consecutive seasons (1983-1989). The Bruins went 151-74-8 during his tenure and the two-time Pac-10 Coach of the Year was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2000. Donahue had a 3-1 record as a head coach in the Rose Bowl and appeared in the storied game six times – once as a UCLA player and once as an assistant coach under Dick Vermeil. Donahue, an undersized defensive tackle on UCLA’s 1966 Rose Bowl-winning team, coached 34 first-team All-Americans and UCLA greats including Troy Aikman, Kenny Easley, Ken Norton Jr. and Jerry Robinson. “He’s a man of faith, he’s a family man, he is a mentor, I think even long before he is a football coach,” said former UCLA quarterback Tom Ramsey who played for Donahue from 1979-1982. “And then he’s a Hall of Fame football coach, so that will tell you where it starts for him. … He’s got a lot of former players in his corner.” The former coach has kept up with the program in recent years, attending games and practices. He watched practice last summer before the Bruins began their first season under Chip Kelly. Donahue was encouraged by the direction of the program that has played in the Rose Bowl Game only once since he resigned in 1995. “It may take us a while to get where we’re going,” Donahue said last year, “but I’m very, very confident that we will get there.” Since his retirement, Donahue continued to lead an active lifestyle, Ramsey said, riding his bike and swimming for exercise. The last time Ramsey spoke with the coach, Donahue was preparing for a swim. The 1983 Rose Bowl MVP asked how long Donahue planned to swim. A few miles, he responded. “This guy just doesn’t just hop in the pool and paddle around. He’s going for it,” Ramsey said laughing at the memory. “But that is T.D. That is T.D.”
