NCAA president Myles Brand dies

Myles Brand died today after a battle with pancreatic cancer. We knew his medical condition was not good when he did not attend the the last national conference so his passing is not a huge surprise. Still the NCAA president will be missed. A former philosophy professor and president of Indiana University (he fired Bobby Knight--yea!!), Brand worked, during his NCAA tenure, at reforming NCAA policies on academics and other issues such as recruiting.
