Dee Brown Is The Sweetest College Basketball Player Of All Time And He Joined Us This Week On Red Line Radio To Explain Why

Let’s start here: 5 dribbles, 15 passes and 3 extremely easy points

I hate to be the salty old guy but that was college basketball at its best and it sucks because it was just before the internet really started dominating highlights. Naturally all the footage extremely limited so it’s more of a You Had To Be There thing at this point.

But for those of us that were there, it was fucking AWESOME

1. Wide open transition 3’s were a regular occurrence because you weren’t sure which NBA guard was going to pull up in your face

2. Bullying the shit out of other team’s point guard because he’s a step too slow

3. Generally being sweet and inventing the popped jersey

They happened and like I said they were fucking awesome. It was a privilege to be a fan of this team and these players, particularly Dee Brown.

This week he sat down with us on Red Line Radio to talk about how he almost brought a National Championship to Champaign. I don’t want to over promise but at the same time it’s an absolute must listen so do yourself a favor and tune in




PS – If you got 90 minutes to kill this afternoon…
