There's a pattern here ... I think many of the advocates for Lamb and Cornley don't have Twitter. The younger group (who obviously watched Watkins) has Twitter is voting for Leroy.

I also don't think of Lamb as a "coke machine." For those that never saw him he actually brought the ball up against the breast. So offense was kind of triggered by him a lot of the times. Cornley and Watkins were definite epidomes of coke machine. Holyfield has a little more face up offense to his game and athletic defense. Anyway, just an opinion.

I honestly don’t see a wrong answer. All these guys were really good and very tough. I, too, saw LW more than the others. Leroy was always friendly. Big dude you could see on the quad from anywhere.

Rick Lamb was a very good athlete. He had a scholarship offer to play QB for the Illini, and was the last person cut by the Celtics.

It's been a while since we posted because Big Pemp has been moving back from Arizona to Normal.

Larry was a great guest. The Podcast is a little long but there is tons of information there from scheduling, thoughts on FCS vs FBS, having 33 RPI twice, and just favorite moments. You can hear his passion for ISU, Bloomington-Normal, and Redbird Athletics.

Hope you enjoy

Larry definitely had his downfalls as an AD but this was a very insightful conversation. Some good behind-the-scenes stuff. Nicely done, gentlemen!

Guys, this is such a cool thing you do. Thank you so much.

Every poster on this forum should give this particular episode a listen. It gives you insight into Larry from both a professional and personal perspective. It will give you pause, as a fan, before you (and I) blindly criticize what you really don't know...unless you've been in those Redbird A.D. shoes. (or Redbird coaching shoes, or Redbird uniform shoes)

BTW, welcome home Big Pemp.👊 You are greeeaaaat mojo for the program.

Well said Humdinger. The episode is long but worth it in my opinion. Make sure you listen to the end of the podcast about the great seat debate in St Louis.
