Well said Mike."Google" cetainly couldn't capture the essence of this man. Jim had his faults, but I wouldn't want to go to battle without him on my side.

I knew him for nearly 40 years and will miss him. This era couldn't hold a candle to his era in any way.

As a University of Houston alum, Hoss will always be remembered for his comment that "half the UH fans eat at 7-11s and the other half rob them."

Of course there were other comments he made about UH and other schools that forced the SWC to integrate, but they aren't for a family paper.

Here's to you Hoss, I'll hoist a big gulp and microwave a burritto in your honor.
