wow, i think i remember "scooby doo". if my memory serves me correctly, i think he was dark skinned, legit 7 foot, but couldn't play a "lick". don't remember his real name or what year he played...
Scooby Doo was from SC lol. Yes he was a legit 7 footer that could not jump a lick .I don't think he played in one game .
He got some minutes. Fans use to call for him to play. Reynolds recruited him. Paper had a big article about his shoe size. Special order. Incidentally, Warren Reynolds coached at liberty university for a few years.
Well, on that day they were good (for us). People always claimed that we had them in our pockets since back then the meac office was in Greensboro. It may have been true to an extent.
When I tell you they huddled up for several minutes after that foul call and then looked around at the crowd and then waved it off, I do not exaggerate. There had already been a couple of fights in Corbett that evening and folk were ready to roll. It was a foul on a three point shot too. No way Howard wouldn't have won that game. Me and the fellas were like "we all know damn well that was a foul, but them refs knew better."
LOL. I remember that one. I was at the game. They waved off the foul call and ended the game (and ran the f out Corbett before the Howard coaches could get to them).
Oh wow, so MEAC officials have been bad for a while, huh? Lol.
No, they had some outstanding officials during those days. A&T won that game by one point off of a missed shot. I will have to watch that game. Butch Beard was Howard's coach. I can't remember, but Jerry Eaves should have been his assistant.
