Hoosiers


In a more pop culture vein – an interesting article from ’04 written after the suicide of Kent Poole, who played Merle, the soft-spoken point guard in Hoosiers. (“Let’s win this one for all the small schools that never had a chance to get here.” He’s to Hackman’s right, behind him, in the photo)

The article’s author, Bob Cook, takes the occasion to track down the remaining actors who made up the Hickory Huskers and catch up on their lives and their recollections of the film. If you’re a fan of the absolutely wonderful film, then it’s a pretty fascinating read.
