The end is near for Coach Brock. He hasn't spoken in the past 24 hours, just nodding occasionally when a family member asks him if he'd like water and ice.
But just after noon on this Saturday in Mesa, he looks over at his wife, who is keeping vigil next to his bed.
"Who won the championship?" he asks her.
Pat Brock reports that Oklahoma is beating Georgia Tech, 13-5, late in the game.
The coach closes his eyes.
Jim Brock soon slips into a coma, and dies peacefully the following evening.
The Milwaukee Brewers selected Antone Williamson as the fourth player in the professional draft. He is expected to become an instant millionaire, or close to it, when he signs with the Brewers. Todd Cady signed with the Florida Marlins for a reported $125,000 after the tournament. Jacob Cruz, selected 32nd in the draft, is expected to sign soon with the San Francisco Giants for an estimated $250,000. Other Devils, including Scott Shores and Noah Peery, have also moved on to the pros.
ASU's next head coach has not yet been selected.
