The great John Wooden passed away yesterday. There seems to be a dearth of principled people in this world, certainly few pop icons. Coach was a rare breed and a great teacher to many, including myself. One of my favorite "Woodenisms": Talent is God Given: be humble. Fame is man given: be thankful. Conceit is self given: be careful. — John Wooden, RIP.
