Kidney failure. That hits very close to home. He got a transplant from his brother a number of years back.

Hopefully, 3D printed kidneys will be reach fruition in the coming years because there are also a lot of people that have kudney failure due to diabetes. For me, it was polycystic kidney disease.

I will never forget his great runs, leadership and going to midfield to start crap with the Buffs. And in an era where an ACL was career ending, he came back to rush for 1200 yards.

Was in the Cotton Bowl when he hurt his knee against Texas. We would have won that one had that not happened.

Would have loved to see what he would have done on two healthy knees - what if, what if....

So sad - was too young.
