That is horrible - my prayers and thoughts go out to his friends and family
That season is really the first one I remember watching, other than being at games here and there prior. I was 11 at the time and I vividly remember that clip OT posted. I was in front of the tv chanting we want earl with my dad. RIP
Who's doing play by play in that clip? So familiar but I can never place these guys
That was great to watch, and I don't know who the announcers were, but at the end the announcer referred to the color guy as Kenny. Does that even help?
His dad was my old assistant football coach while being the voice of the Virginia Squires ABA team and the Virginia Red Wings Hockey team. Thom is great guy and Marty his dad did tons of ACC games back in the day. Had no idea that was Thom at the time.
OT bringing the goods. Everyone needs to watch that clip. Scroll up.

Damn. That clip makes me even sadder. But you know what - I'm happy Earl at least had a moment like that in his life. To have that many people cheering for you, to have them go crazy for you just for entering a game. I hope that made all his hard work worth it. RIP.

Awful news. I hated coming on the board this morning and seeing that thread topic. I was dreading what was inside. What a shame.
The sound of Cole after Earl made that basket choked me up. Thanks for posting this OT.
P.S. Andre Collins is a jerk.

Wow, I remember watching that and being so psyched that Earl not only got in the game but got to score. RIP
It was Kenny "The Jet" Smith. I was at the game. RIP Earl.

That video is a great tribute to EB. The announcers were giving him all kinds of props.
Also couldn't help but notice the cool ribbon style flag banners on the court. That's exactly what we should have on the new court and on our white FB helmets instead of that hideous flat starched/stretched out version.
Apparently it was suicide.
A former University of Maryland basketball player who was on the 2002 national championship team has died after jumping from a freeway overpass in an apparent suicide.

"The drummer for Maryland's pep band just freaked out: 'They're trying to slow the game down,' he screamed. 'Get up on them, get up on them.
