Happy, happy birthday to a guy who brought us all a lot of joy for many years. NO ONE has ever looked as good in that orange jacket.

Happy birthday Lou. Do, last year's game, I'm walking into the State Farm Center, and a little old guy is holding the door open for me and my wife. He has a walker. I say, you go ahead. He insists that I enter first. My wife said it's that Lou Henson. Sure enough. Made my Life. Loved that man and his great and not so great teams. I am an Illini fan because of him.

As has been said before, great coach...better man.
I was in C-U during a golden era when the Assebly Hall was a virtual snake pit. I was fortunate enough to have a nice conversation with Lou as an undergrad (my screen name might give away my age). My time in college witnessed some great basketball. Whatever you think of Henson as a coach he is one the classiest gentlemen you will ever have the privilege of meeting.

Like you, I was on campus during those heady days of Winters, Alternberger, Douglas, Winters, et al - what a great time to fall head over heels, stone-cold in love with the Orange & Blue! Happy birthday Coach!
