NCAA President Myles Brand dies at 67

ESPN.com has a short blurb on his passing (more will coming I'm sure)

NCAA president Myles Brand died Wednesday after a nine-month battle with pancreatic cancer.

Brand, 67, was diagnosed with the disease in January.

Personally, this news came as a shock to me - I had no idea Brand had cancer. So first off, condolences are necessary to all of his family and friends, along with everyone he affected as NCAA president. I think he did a lot of really great things for the NCAA, and it's a sad day for college sports as a whole.

We all had our issues with Brand in terms of what he did (or hasn't done) with the JC across town. There will be a time for going over all that and talking about what the next president may or may not do differently regarding that situation. But for now, let me just be the first here at BN to wish Myles' family well.

Also, check out Pat Forde's story linked to on the main ESPN story. It's a good read, and says a lot more about him than I would be able to.

RIP Myles.
