Thank you Remy for this "tribute". I was hoping based on the math that my Alma Mater would make the countdown!

The Burrows boys are legends in Portsmouth - Norm a phenom at QB; you would never meet a nicer guy in the world, he did not walk around the halls with a  BMOC attitude even though he was a HS all american and a Buckeye signee. I Norm also had a daughter who was a member of TBDBITL. Norm not Scott, was a 4 yr member at DB.

Scott was one of the funniest guys I knew in Hs and was a good friend. He is greatly missed by the class of 79" - Starting center at 6'2" on the 1978 D2 champs and #1 ranked and undefeated 18-0 AP 1979 poll champs. Both brothers were both phenomenal baseball players as well. 

Couple of other notable facts: the Trojans have played in 15 Final Fours out of their 4 state titles. Also 2 famous figures grew up in the area were Roy Rogers and Branch Rickey.

Beilein does deserve extra credit for leaving the program in respectable shape

 I would beg to differ… It’s way too early to know what kind of shape TTUN is in, The three best players are leaving early for the draft, At number 49, not a particularly good draft class coming in, and they don’t even know who the coach is.
