    Damn, first Steve Belichick and now this:

    Dave Smalley was Class of 1957 and has been fighting cancer for the last several years. He played baseball and basketball and after his USMC commtiment, came back to the Academy as the men's basketball coach. When women came, he took a ragtag team, most who had never played high school basketball, and went 10-1 their first year. Later, he became assistant athletic director, giving up men's basketball but continuing to coach the women, and is still the NCAA compliance guru. But more importantly, back in the days before three field houses and plush offices, he was always around.He was the guy with the clipboard urging one more pushup, one more swim stroke, one last push on the mile run. He cared. He will definitely be missed.
