If you get a chance, listen to the replay of Coach on the radio tonight.
He was on a roll.
Randy Rainwater asked him if he worried about playing a team multiple times. He basically said, “that’s something the media talks about. Hell, I think we beat Texas 4 times one year.” Pure gold (it was 3).
Speaking of media, I remember walking into practice at the Georgia Dome and making a profound statement about how it is tougher to shoot in a dome.
Coach said, “you listen to Vitale too much.”
My body has never been found.
Coach talking about “Forty Minutes of Hell”…“sometimes it was 30 minutes of hell and 10 minutes of what the hell are we doing.”
John Walker was a damn good lawyer. Not sure where you’re coming from there. Phil Kaplan, who represented the university, is also a really good lawyer. Bill Wilson a really good judge. The case was tried to the bench — not to a jury. I’d say the facts came out and Judge Wilson ruled correctly. That’s how it’s supposed to work.
When we had the court dedication for Coach, I reintroduced him to my mom. I told him that she cursed me with being short, and he said, “I would say she blessed you with life.”
They just don’t make em like him anymore. Mr. Miyagi ain’t got nothing on The Bear, lol.
Anybody here who hasn’t watched his Naismith Hall of Fame speech, please do it. He had the whole room in the palm of his hand for 30 minutes (it was supposed to be 10 minutes).
The lawyers in that case were some of the best arkansas has ever had. I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with and against both John walker and Phil Kaplan. Tried cases in front of judge bill Wilson.
The law won that day is how coach lost that case but it wasn’t on the lawyers.
He was really good last night. For a change, RR asked good questions. It never fails that somebody who never calls the show, will call in to say how much they loved Nolan and how he affected their lives. Last night it was a native Arkansan calling from North Dakota.
Nolan always mentions how much he loves Razorback fans and Arkansas. Proof of that is he is still living here.
