Got to go to practice today and spoke to Dr. Rice for 15 minutes. He's in his late 80's but you'd never know it. Even notice guys offsides on a kickoff. He teaches a class on campus and brings in a guest speaker each week. Still loves GT and attends most games. Cool to see almost all the coaches, Joe Ham and MBob come over to spend some time with him. One of the greatest men I've ever met, and we're lucky he came to GT when he did.(In reference to my prior post...)
Nah, that's just dumb, now that I do the math. Homer is way up there, in our esteem as well as in years, and I can't see him being asked to come back and pick up real duties with the program.
He's earned his white-and-golden years, and as much as I respect and admire the guy, I wouldn't ask him to step back into the ring in any capacity.
