I heard of the news late this morning, but waited to say anything until I saw it in the news. Cliff Russell our radio host on AM 910, died late last night on the trip @ UIC. I have no details confirmed, but I read previously that he had heart issues dating back to Sept 2016. Please keep him in your prayers along with his family and our Titan family.

Oh, Mike. This is just horrible. I was just listening to him on the radio a couple of days ago. I'm absolutely stunned. May God bless him and his family. Who cares about our record now?! This year has to be the saddest episode In our team's history. I obviously didn't know Mr. Russell personally but I sure liked him on the radio. I don't know what to say.

So sad. Cliff’s brother Greg is a loyal U-D grad, a friend from my student days at the University. Condolences to the entire Russell family.

Too young to die. A very classy guy on the radio. Prayers up for Cliff and his family.

RIP to Cliff Russell and condolences to his family. I remember him teaching at Wayne State, never met him, seemed like a great guy.

sigh. will miss him. was a great communicator and a decent man. a lot of insight in the game. always enjoyed talking to him at the monday nite coaches show. rest in peace.
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

Was driving around yesterday and listened into part of the Cliff Russell show on 910AM, 2-4pm. It was hosted by his brother Greg and there were other family members in the studio and it was a tribute party to Cliff. Earl the Twirl was also in studio and he really is a good role model and representative of our University. There were many call-ins from people who had worked with Cliff about his character, his humble nature, his intelligence (he got a scholarship to Roeper as a kid), etc. Garibaldi called in while I was listening. I am really surprised at those who call for his head. I like so much of what he is doing; I truly believe those who want a new President are way out in left field.
