RIP Randy Walker 1954-2006
Sad, sad story. Walker was so young.
I always liked Walker. After Gary Barnett oozed and weaseled his way out of Northwestern to go be slimy at Colorado, I figured Wildcats football, which had been the nations's biggest joke prior to Barnett's arrival, would slip back to where it cam from: the pits.
Walker, however, despite being handicapped by strict academic standards, always kept the Wildcats competitive, going to three bowl games and even winning a Big Ten title in 2000. Of course, even when the Wildcats weren't at their best, their wild, mad scientist offense was always entertaining. Always.
Walker will be missed.
Sad, sad story.
