Normally we pop the Manischewitz on Shabbat, but this week it is all about the Champaign…Champaign, Illinois, that is. This week’s Friday Wrap-Up post is brought to you all the way from the University of Illinois. That’s right…I’m in Illinois, baby! Go Illini…beat OSU!
- If you missed it, this week I was able to interview Marc Isenberg, author of the new book Money Players. Check out the interview, and buy a book or two…or fifty.
- Charlie Weis is 1-8 as head coach of Notre Dame this year. You think the school may be wondering why they agreed to a contract that will pay him another $25 million over the next eight years? Gotta hand it to Bob Lamonte of Professional Sports Representation for getting his client, Weis, his current contract with ND [Notre Dame’s Charlie Weis: Why Such A Big Contract?].
- A pretty convincing argument that Barry Bonds is being heavily undervalued by MLB clubs…particularly in the AL [Shhh… Look Who Else is a Free Agent].
- Mike Lupica
hates loathesdespises Scott Boras [A-Rod’s agent represents 2 things: himself and greed].
