Who was it that punched a police horse?  Was if Fortson? 

Can't remember his name, but had the nick name The Helicopter, got so pissed when we beat them on Valentine's Day, thinking Troy Robertson hit free throws late

Maybe Bobby Brannon. I think he had a tramp stamp. The tattoo guy was usually set up outside his trailer park on Tues and Thurs morning

Somebody is going to remember this. What was the Majerus number for recruiting shooters? The sum of their FG%/3P%/FT% that he talked about. I can't remember it for the life of me. Was it like 180? 

It was 180....RM use to say he would take a 180 player ....sight unseen.

For a comparison ...on my system which rates all D1 players and then grades them on a curve  ...an A+  player (D1) during the RM years while at SLU was 162.8.  ( 47.6 / 39.1 / 76.1 ) which explains why he would take a player sight unseen.   A 180 player would be like a AAA.  Again for comparison ....adjusting for the new 3 pt line ...an A+ player in 2021 would be 163.5  ( 47.8 / 37.7 / 78 ).    Overall in  D1 ... FG% about the same.....3P%  down and FT% up since the RM years.

Btw...The upcoming season will be the 10th anniversary of RM's best and last full season as SLU's head coach.

Do the numbers show that moving the 3point line back has made a difference?
