Re: UA to honor Lute Olson during halftime of March 5 game


Tribute to Lute draws yeahs, nays

• Great coach, yes. But he left the program in shambles. The record and recruiting show it. But I hope he’s happy. 2998

• He deserves it. Even the haters who hate this guy can’t say he didn’t do anything for this program. This guy deserves all the credit in the world for taking a (bad) team and turning it into one of the best programs in the nation. We all should show class, respect, and a debt of gratitude for what he did. JUST A FAN

• Olson built it and he did his best to tear it down. Just get out! Or is it time to come back again? OCOTILLO SUNSET

• Twenty-five years, Hall Of Fame, Pac-10 and a national championship, good guys up in the NBA, solid graduates, good family man, heck of a nice guy. He is one of the best ever. Now for those of you who have never shaken his hand, or sat with him for even a few minutes, put your comments where the Sun Devil doesn’t shine. 3829

• Good to see something planned. Then let’s move on. The future will be different but comparisons to “Lute this” and “Lute that” will cripple the program. 5940

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
