Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/19/2018)

I think my most popular tweet this week dealt with Nick Bosa. I wrote, “Nick Bosa withdrawing from Ohio State is 100% the economically wise decision. He owes nothing to the university, which has been able to make $ off his talent & likeness while he was not able to based on “student-athlete” status. It’s not being selfish; it’s being smart.” Most people agreed with my commentary, but others seem to believe that Bosa is in debt to Ohio State. I find that hard to believe. Switching gears, the Miami Heat look like they are in for a loooong season. The Gators have looked fantastic as of late. And how about the Dolphins? What a game to be at (vs. the Bears). I’ll be back at Hard BROCK Stadium for the Lions match-up, for sure.

Thanks this week goes out to from the Sports Agent Blog fam.
