ESPN.com reports that the NCAA president Myles Brand has died of cancer at the age of 67.
He was amazing he was the head of the Indiana University, but sadly he died on Wednesday. All due his pancreatic cancer. He was not just a regular head, but he was a great one.
It is not surprising that he died of pancreatic cancer though. He had announced in January, but he wouldn't stop he was a fighter. No one can replace an amazing head like him. Even the NCAA officials havn't announced finding another successor like him.
"Myles Brand's passing is a great personal loss of a dear friend and an even greater loss to the NCAA and collegiate athletics," said Michael Adams who had worked with him a lot. "I believe Myles will be remembered as a person who helped us refocus on the student in student-athlete and his academic reforms will long outlive him."
Those are very nice and helping words. It is true that the college athletes will have a greater loss, it will be big. I really don't believe this but it is true the president Myles Brand died at only sixty-seven. He was so great he encouraged children, he also helped children. Every draft season for any sport he was the one making those careers come true.
If it wasn't for him this great stuff wouldn't have happened.
The time where Brand became the most famous was when the whole Mr. Knight situation went on. Knight was chocking players and it was just the most ridiculous thing you can imagine. It happened two fearful times. But it was a good thing he was fired for all the crap he did.
"Just because he fired us doesn't mean we want anything bad to happen," Pat Knight said to get respect back. "That's shocking. I don't wish death upon anybody. That's sad, no matter who it is."
Now please who is going to believe that he is the most sorry he chocked player, chocked. Seriously that was not a good choice I think he just got more haters. But that night college student came to Brand's house surrounding and protesting about the firing.
Well lets hope that Brand rests in peace, going into heaven peacefully
