This and That

Week of August 3rd, 2020


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

*Fans thinking that Notre Dame football will be heading to the ACC full-time and give up being Independent. Think again, forget about it This is simply a bizarre season.

*College basketball got good news with several players pulling out of the NBA Draft and returning to college. Luke Garza returned to Iowa. Ayo Dosunmu and Kofi Cockburn returned to Illinois. Isaiah Joe came back to Arkansas. 

*There is no slowing down Tom Izzo ⁦as the Spartans strike gold again in recruiting baby! ⁦

*The Pac-12 is on an upsurge in recruiting in hoops. Another success is with ⁦Mick Cronin of UCLA as he gets the top player from California as rated by many, Peyton Watson.

*A fantastic move by ⁦the Orioles, inducting super fan Mo Gaba, 14, who is blind and has cancer, into their Hall of Fame. What a terrific inspiration Mo has been for many!

*A lot of news from players pulling out of sports. Yoenis Cespedes and Lorenzo Cain in baseball, numerous NFL players opted out. Not easy decisions.
