Scottie Wilbekin works out for Magic: The former Gator ended his pre-draft visits by saying that the Orlando Magic would be the perfect landing spot. We'll see on that. (Edgar Thompson, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)
Billy Donovan coaches up some champions: Donovan's team won the U18 FIBA Americas tournament on Tuesday, boosting his record to 19-0 when coaching in international competition and giving Billy his third straight championship. (Kevin Bockway, The Gainesville Sun)
Winning the recruiting cure-all for Gators?: The answer is a no because recruiting is 20 percent (roughly) of the battle when it comes to building a successful football team. (Luke Stampini, GatorBait/247Sports)
Thomas Holley interview: Holley seems like a very nice young man and hopefully his career here is very successful. (Joe Kozlowski, TDdaily)
Practice fields getting a makeover: Sadly though, they're not beginning work on an indoor facility. (Scott Carter, GatorZone)
Mike Pouncey has hip surgery: He'll likely miss the start of the season as a result. (The Gainesville Sun)
Wimbledon: Good start to the tournament.
World Cup: The USA is in very good shape. They'll be just fine.
ESPN's 30 for 30: I've been watching a few of those every week for the past month or so. For some reason I just want to watch them all. They're all extremely good and well put together.
Top five 30 for 30:
- 1) Pony Excess: Probably the best-ever college football story.
- 2) Without Bias: I am fully in the belief that if Len Bias makes it to the Boston Celtics, Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls never make the run they do.
- 3) 9.79*: The biggest track and field story, ever. It's not even close.
- 4) The Two Escobars: Just in time for the World Cup, right?
- 5) The U: I bet it was fun as hell to be a Miami Hurricans fan in the '80s and early '90s.
Just missing the list: Fab Five, June 17, 1994, Once Brothers, The Announcement, Charismatic, Tim Richmond: To the Limit, Small Potatoes, The Guru of Go, 40 Minutes of Hell, Legend of Jimmy the Greek and Ghosts of Ole Miss.
Which reminds me: Hail to the REDSKINS!
