Week of September 14th, 2020
Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:
*Really impressed by the comments of Steve Nash. He was very honest and upfront. If he coaches 1/4 as well as he played, the Brooklyn Nets scored with a SLAM JAM BAM BABY!
*Tom Brady and the Bucs came up short again the Saints. The Ravens were impressive over the Browns. DeAndre Hopkins had 151 receiving yards as the Cardinals shocked the Niners.
*Naomi Osaka was impressive on and off the court in winning the US Open. The men’s final went five sets as Domenic Thiem prevailed.
*The ACC basketball coaches not the conference itself want everyone this year in D1 to be eligible to compete in March Madness. One of the key reasons, according to Coach K is that the metrics to define who gets bids will be tough to do due to scheduling problems. Crazy year.
*College football had its share of upsets. A ranked Iowa State team lost to Louisiana. Arkansas State won at Kansas State. Costal Carolina upset Les Miles’ Kansas team.
*Define a coach by whether he gets the maximum out of his talent . Billy Donovan did a terrific job in the NBA with the Oklahoma City Thunder. During his five years, he had them playing at a high level as the West was loaded with some strong competition. No doubt he will be wanted. A definite future HOFer, I know several colleges would be interested in a guy who cut down the nets twice at Florida. I think you will see him on an NBA sideline next season.
*I thought schools and the NCAA were in the business to help kids. Why is this young guy, Michael Flowers, being penalized? Come on Western Michigan and South Alabama, you must be better than what I am reading. TheNCAA denied his eligibility request after transferring and I think that is wrong.
