RE: OT: NEW He's Dead, Jim--notable Deaths thread
Maegle was one of Rice's greatest heroes, an original Dallas Cowboy (along with my great-uncle Wayne), and Tidelands mogul (Moegle?). In 1954 his name was spelled Moegle when Tommy Lewis came off the bench to tackle him. When Moegle and Lewis appeared on Ed Sullivan later that week the hero of the day (Moegle, who set the still-standing bowl record of over 26 yards per carry) was ignored by Sullivan, who instead lionized Lewis, who said he was just "too full of Alabama". The fallout: Alabama has obviously prospered, and Rice is still waiting for a team that could carry water for the '53 team.

Pro-football-reference.com has Dicky on the 1961 Cowboys' roster (his last year as a pro player), not the team's initial 1960 squad.

(Is Wayne Hansen your great uncle?)

The Cowboys had Howton in 1960 - I thought they had Maegle too. Yes, I'm related to Texas Western's Wayne Hansen. My father went clubbing one night with Wayne and Bulldog Turner.

It could have been worse, I guess. Since it was before my conception I'm probably lucky to be here.

Wow. This guy did a lot for sports as we know them today:

Dennis Murphy, co-founder of pro sports leagues, dies at 94

Dennis Arthur Murphy (September 4, 1926 – July 15, 2021) was an American sports entrepreneur who helped co-found the American Basketball Association (1967-1976) (with Gary Davidson), the World Hockey Association (1972-1979), the original World Team Tennis (1973-1978), the International Basketball Association (1988), Roller Hockey International (1992-1999), and several other trend-setting amateur and professional sports concepts and events. Each of his innovations exhibited ground-breaking marketing and promotional tactics, new rules, and a style of play that forced the evolution of the entrenched incumbent. Among the many visionary rules and promotional concepts introduced by Murphy include the 3-point shot (ABA), the Slam-Dunk Contest (ABA), team cheerleaders (ABA), the first $1 million contract (WHA), and he paved the path for the ever-growing wave of European and Russian hockey players that now play in North America. Murphy and King produced the 1973 “Battle of the Sexes” made-for-TV tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, who was married to Larry King, at the Houston Astrodome.

The Baltimore Colts in the NFL were the first professional team to have team cheerleaders - way back in 1954.

our friend has left the building:

Marcel Theo Hall (April 8, 1964 – July 16, 2021), known professionally as Biz Markie, was an American rapper, singer, DJ, record producer, actor, comedian, and writer. He was best known for his 1989 single "Just a Friend", which became a Top 40 hit in several countries. In 2008, "Just a Friend" made No. 100 on VH1's list of the 100 greatest hip hop songs of all time. Markie has been called the "Clown Prince of Hip Hop

In April 2020, Markie was hospitalized due to severe complications from Type 2 diabetes. As of July 2020, his wife and family had not commented publicly on his condition. In December 2020, it was reported that Markie was staying in a rehabilitation facility as a result of a stroke he had suffered after going into a diabetic coma.

On July 1, 2021, rumors of his death circulated on Twitter. His representative told Rolling Stone at that time, "The news of Biz Markie's passing is not true, Biz is still under medical care, surrounded by professionals who are working hard to provide the best healthcare possible."

On July 16, 2021, Markie died from diabetes-related complications.

Goes to show that no amount of Hospitalization, health care, doctors, pills, et cetera will combat the poor lifestyle habits that lead to things like Type 2 Diabetes. If you're overweight, cut down by a meal a day and start slowly exercising and get yourself in better shape, also oatmeal and cabbage helps a lot...soda does not and diet soda is way worse than regular...just get the burger and skip the fires and drink (even two burgers with no sides or drink is better than the "meal") at the drive-thru. Such a shame, I enjoyed his talent immensely.

Legendary FSU coach Bobby Bowden, 91 has terminal illness: ‘I am at peace’

Quote: "I've always tried to serve God's purpose for my life, on and off the field, and I am prepared for what is to come," Bowden said in a statement shared with the Democrat. "My wife Ann and our family have been life's greatest blessing.

"I am at peace."

--Bobby Bowden

Bowden is one of the most successful college football coaches ever. He has an unofficial overall record of 357-124-4 in 40 years at West Virginia and Florida State and ranks as the second-winningest coach at the top level of college football behind Penn State's Joe Paterno.

Bowden's teams won two national championships and played in a bowl game in all but three seasons.

Perhaps even more impressive, he built the FSU program literally from scratch.

Exactly Right, Walt, he sure did. Times were of course a lot different back then, and people forget how bad and how much of an afterthought FSU was for years, but I always loved Bowden's play them anytime, anywhere as often as possible attitude towards what were then the big boys. And then he started beating them (which you kind of have to do too, because just playing them is obviously not close to enough, but it is a start). To do that, you have to be a pretty good to great coach, and as #s and several have posted in the past numerous times, you have to do something contrarian and think outside the box in who you recruit and the system you put them in.

Rice's parameters have for decades screamed that it should only pursue significantly contrarian approaches on the fields and courts, so that it might have a chance to succeed and collect several signature wins to help it improve its lot (Appy State, Boise State, TCU, etc...) yet we continue to hire 'safe" coaches and invest next to nothing compared to not only our current "peers" but compared to where we should have remained peers. I guess this post could also go in the "New Realignment Thread" rather than the Death thread. Then again, our athletic program has been on death watch for many decades now, so it also seems appropriate here.

Gerald John Granelli (December 30, 1940 – July 20, 2021) was an American-born Canadian jazz drummer. Jerry Granelli was the last surviving member of the original group led by Vince Guaraldi that played the the soundtrack for the iconic television broadcast A Charlie Brown Christmas back in 1969. In He was best known for playing drums on the soundtrack A Charlie Brown Christmas with the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Granelli recorded and toured with the Vince Guaraldi Trio during the 1960s, appearing on Vince Guaraldi, Bola Sete and Friends and A Charlie Brown Christmas. Granelli was only paid $120 for the recording session of A Charlie Brown Christmas, and never received any royalties from the television special or its soundtrack. The soundtrack went on to become a triple-platinum award winning album. Granelli toured jazz festivals and holiday venues with his one-man show Tales of a Charlie Brown Christmas, which retells the three-hour recording session in 1965 that culminated in the timeless Christmas classic.

Artist: Jerry Granelli Trio
Song: "Skating"
2014

Jerry Granelli - Drums
Chris Gestrin - Piano
Simon Fisk - Bass





Jerry also played with the eccentric singer/pianist Mose Allison, whose wry twists on the blues Granelli had the pleasure of accompanying for nearly 40 years:



He got to play with two of the absolute all-time modern jazz greats. Well-done.
