    That would be very sad. If so, glad he made it to Hilton this year to come out with Freddy.

    That would be in extremely poor taste to just make up or throw out there unverified, so it's unfortunately probably true.

    Really sad. My favorite ever. I might actually cry. He was my childhood favorite and still remained my favorite.

    Terrible news. Time to rename the floor in Hilton in his honor?

    Nooooo!

    At least we gave him one last good send off for the Mich game.

    Thank you Johnny for saying Yes to Iowa State and becoming our coach; you made Hilton Magical and are responsible for what we have with Fred today.

    RIP

    Yes, and it should have been done before the Michigan game.

    What? It's not in the news feeds, Coach. :pmad:

    If it's true, then 2013 was truly the sh*tt*est year ever.
