Harry Douglas — First round draft pick by the Chicago Bears.chocs

Rick Pitino — An exclusive contract for American Express basketball commercials, relieving fans of Krzyzewski overexposure.

Tom Jurich — A national championship trophy in something to go with his Athletic Director of the Year award.

Dan McDonnell — Unseasonably warm weather for the early months of the college baseball season and many capacity crowds.

Angel McCoughtry — A heart-shaped box of Godiva for making it fun to watch women’s basketball.

David Padgett — Big East Player of the Year recognition for his contributions while overcoming significant injury.

Terrence Williams — A special place in the new downtown arena for one of his priceless quotes, along with a large graphic of him kissing the Freedom Hall court.
