This and That

Week of September 16, 2019

 

Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:

*The USA hoops team that lost to France and Serbia was one that had young talented players giving their best, but all the superstars showed no interest to rep the USA. I hope that mindset changes for the Olympics.

*Big Blue Nation is jumping with joy with this news. It looks like ⁦coach John Calipari will have a monster class in 2021! I’ve said it once and will say it again, the guy embraces recruiting and is a recruiting machine.⁦

*It is unreal that the President of University of Arizona hasn’t addressed this latest EMBARRASSING situation for an outstanding school. When does this soap opera end? Ex-Zona assistant said he paid HS coach $40K.

*This California vs NCAA legal situation on players having a right to profit from their name and likeness is getting heated up . This is 2019 and times have changed with everyone making dollars except the key people, the PLAYERS!

*The Herm Edwards effect comes up big for Arizona State in a 10-7 win at Michigan State. Remember when some people criticized that hiring?

*Kyle Trask was the BMOC for Florida, rallying the Gators to a win at Kentucky.

*The Niners are a different team with Jimmy Garapolo. Nice to start 2-0.
