    Assuming he'll be cremated?

    ISU Chemistry professor Victor Lin was in 2010. I'd guess a few each year are buried there. What a great honor for Coach.

    I believe burials are ongoing. As per the ISU cemetery website -

    "Memorial Day services, originally conducted by ROTC personnel, have, since 1995 been conducted under the auspices of the Memorial Day Subcommittee of the ISU Retirees Committee. A service is held in the auditorium of the nearby Molecular Biology Building, followed by the placing of flowers on the graves of those who have died since the last service. Flowers have traditionally been provided by the Horticulture Department."

    Not sure, but it's not incredibly rare. There were a couple funerals there when I was in the marching band. There are some fairly strict rules on who can be in such as being tenured or the like, but it isn't a once a decade kind of a thing.

    I was wondering if Johnny would be. It's very fitting. He belongs alongside names like Hilton and Parks

    He said when he retired that he'd always be a Cyclone.

    I didn't know there was an ISU cemetery. Where is it located?

    Northwest of the Armory. It's On the North Side of Pommel. Straight West from Moli Bio, or the old TV studios.
