Even tho he gave the rest of the ACC fits a lot of times, the man was a gentleman, a person who actually taught players, one who held himself to high standards. 83 years old.

Sad to see him go. Two UNC guys dead in a matter of weeks including Stuart Scott. I think much of what Calipari does is based off Dean Smith, from Cal's own admission. What a legendary coach, and people that say he should have won more than two titles are ridiculous. As a UK fan, you'd think I hate Carolina, but I like them more than the other bluebloods honestly. What a program he set. What a coaching tree.

Hate Carolina, but hard to not have respect for him. Don't have to like him, but will def respect what he did for the game. I hope he wasn't at all involved with these academic scandals at UNC. Just a sad time for the sport

RIP Dean Smith. He will be missed. Men's college basketball lost a great coach and legend.

Pitt honored Smith yesterday with a moment of silence prior to the game.
