I ran into Arch after one of the awful UC games maybe 6 or 7 years back. We were both walking to the same bar, he was super friendly, took some pictures, we talked about the Olympics and I distinctly remember referring to the English team, and he gave me a hard time, because he's Scottish and it was the British team. Too young.
I remember seeing him rush the floor after Griffey’s game winner against Indiana. He has such a huge smile. This one hurts b cause he is so young and close to my age. What the heck happened? Does anyone know?
Last weekend several former illini came back to campus and Arch usually came back for those events but didn’t this year.
God is calling a foul on Arch as we post. What a sad day for me. I never met Arch but he brought me many happy memories watching the Illini back then. My prayers go out to his family and friends. Rest in Peace.
