Link?

I had a 32" vertical from standing flat-footed, but was better off the run off one foot. Not bad for a white boy. :mrgreen:

WOW. First of all, how random. I have never searched my name on eBay before... why would I even expect to find that? :shock: But more than that, who in the world thinks they can get $15 for this picture? I mean, there are probably two people in the world who might want that picture and I'm one of them (the FAU player being the other) and I certainly don't want or need it. :lol: The big framed photo that they gave me on the court on Senior Day was similar (from the same game) but not even as good as this one.

I once visited our photographer, Jerry Ward, at his office and went through his hundreds of game shots, and bought a couple from him (this appears to be one of those). My understanding is that most were lost in Katrina. :cry:

Speaking of that, I was going through old photos from my parents' house this past weekend and ran across a bunch of pics my mom took on various visits for basketball games. Some good stuff, I may try to scan some and post here. Unfortunately, the entire set from Senior Day (me, Makeba Perry, Carlin Hartman) were all blurred in what appeared to be a mistake by the photo developing place. Every picture was completely messed up and blurry and not worth keeping, but they were all blurred in the same way which implies it was not the photographer but the developer... and the negatives are all missing. Bummer. :(

If it’s like my house, after a month of being at home people are actually sorting through those old boxes that have been stored for decades that “I have to look through someday”.
After you've been on fire under Arctic pack ice everything else is a walk in the park.

I received an email that Tulane has officially rescheduled the induction of the 2020 class to September 10th, with on-field recognition during the Morgan State football game on September 11th. Excited for it, despite the latter portion falling on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Hopefully with it being held in early September, all the guys who are currently coaching elsewhere can make the trip back. Also looking forward to seeing Jerald Sowell, also in the class, who was at Tulane at the same time as us and is a great guy.

I had some stuff (posters, stickers, etc) from those years. I know some by Perry Clark and I may still have a score card signed by the whole team. I’ll have to see if I can find the box that I stored it in.

Grats Pete I only saw you once in person and that was a USF game in Tampa. We won in overtime but what a rowdy crowd / student body. I was behind the bench. You did all you could to keep from laughing!

Man, we loved playing there! The crowd behind our bench was hysterical and kept us in stitches. Unfortunately a couple of years after they joined the conference, I remember hearing that Denny Crum complained so much (and there may have been allegations of racist comments being made) and USF moved them back like 10 rows. They then filled those empty seats with fake tombstones with all of our names and some random comment about us based on what they could learn about us from whatever methods were available then (pre-internet). Clever but not as amusing as hearing them heckle us the whole game.

Hey Pete, I just learned I’ll be joining you in the Hall of Fame!!

Well... ok, the Greenbackers are being inducted as Slatten Award winners as part of the 2021 Class so not nearly as meaningful as your accomplishment but as a 15+ year member of the club I will tell my grandkids I’m in and they won’t be none the wiser!!

Btw, here is the full 2021 class

I think this deserves its own thread, don't you? Congrats to all in the club. I bet the passing of Big Mike brought this (worthy) idea to their attention.

And you get to hang out with Cairo Santos, too (and the 1973 football team and others)!

Unfortunately I won't be able to congratulate y'all in person, as the 2020 and 2021 classes are being inducted completely separately. Ours is two weeks earlier.
