R&R Podcast: Jimmy V Remembrance Episode feat. Whittenburg and Myers

August 27, 2011

With the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic teeing off this Sunday, I was afforded the rare opportunity to bring Ernie Myers and Dereck Whittenburg on for a special podcast episode to share some memories of Jim Valvano. And trust me folks, they did not disappoint.

The two State stars shared some great stories, including a tale from Whitt of how V might’ve humorously blown his chance at landing Shaquielle O’Neal while on the recruiting trail.

We also touch on the untimely passing of Lorenzo Charles and what he meant to Myers and Whitt during their playing days and long after.

If you only listen to one podcast from our small-but-rapidly-growing library, make it THIS one. Trust me.

    This is a great podcast and gave me goose bumps the whole way through.  Listening to Whit and Ernie discuss their memories of Jimmy V was fantastic.  This is a must listen for any State Fan, especially to understand what we had in the old days and why we long for greatness so much!
