    It is with great sadness that we have learned Eddie Crowder has passed away. Eddie was a bright, thoughtful, kind and compassionate man. He never forgot any of his players. The spirit of his big heart will continue with us.
    My sympathy to Mrs. Kate Crowder and his family.

    I was fortunate enough to stumble into a Buffalo Belles luncheon once (because of work) where he was speaking. He seemed like a genuine, kind gentleman and I enjoyed listening to his stories. RIP Coach Crowder, one of the best Buffaloes we've ever had.

    sad day for CU fans. Eddie was a really great guy, down to earth.

    if we are going to name something after someone in the near future, Crowder get's my vote.

    RIP Coach Crowder, thank you for giving this Buff amazing thrills when I was a kid at Folsom Field in the early 70's.

    I've always wanted to have the stadium named after either Crowder or Mac. That would be such a huge honor and a good way to remind us of the legacy. It'd wouldn't be the only stadium in the Big 12 to be named after a Sooner too :smile2: Although I doubt that'll happen.

    RIP Coach, thanks for everything you did for CU Athletics.
