It is with great sadness that I write this blog post. Today, at the age of 92, legendary DePaul college basketball coach Ray Meyer passed away this past Friday . Coach, as even his kids (not players, but childern) refered to him as was one of the most influential men in the history of college basketball. Coach Meyer is responsible for putting DePaul University Athletics on the map. He guided his teams to Two Final Four apperences in a total of 21 post-seasons berths. Although Coach Meyer, did not lead his team to any NCAA Championships his knoweldege of the game influenced players such as the late George Mikan to Mark Aguire. He was revered by Blue Demon fans far and wide.
