Jordan Shoes for Sale Bucks aren't moving
Some tidbits from the I'll bet you didn't know this department:
Milwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl has had several offers to buy his NBA franchise over the years but, for the last year or so, he has had a standing offer on the table from an out of state entrepreneur. In other words, if Kohl was inclined to sell the Bucks right now, he could.
Before the St. Louis Rams hired Jeff Fisher as their head coach, the Rams' decision makers seriously considered several college coaches for the position. And who was at the top of the list of some Rams officials? Wisconsin's Bret Bielema.
The Brewers hit it out of the park when they selected Ryan Braun with the fifth overall selection in the 2005 major league draft. If the Brewers would have had their druthers on draft day, though, they would have selected Alex Gordon. Fortunately for the Brewers, Gordon was off the board when they picked as he was drafted by Kansas City at No. 2.
CC Sabathia of the New York Yankee is one of the elite pitchers in the game. But growing up in Vallejo, Calif., the 6 foot 7 Sabathia wasn't the tallest or perhaps even the best thrower in the area. Or so says Milwaukee Bucks 6 10 forward Drew Gooden. "In junior high school, CC and I played in the same league," Gooden said. "He was a hell of a pitcher then and I was, too. I think we were at about the same level of ability. Maybe I should have stuck to baseball."
It's no secret to basketball insiders that Marquette University's Buzz Williams, one of college basketball's up and coming star coaches, looked into some other jobs after last season. If the Golden Eagles have another good season, and there's no reason to believe they won't, you can safely assume several colleges will come calling for Williams. One school to watch out for: Texas A I'm told it would be Williams' "dream job."
One can only speculate why Montee Ball decided to return for his senior season at Wisconsin.
Jordans For Sale After compiling some dizzying numbers last season Ball rushed for 1,923 yards and scored 39 touchdowns he was positioned to be a first or second round draft pick.
And now, after a dropoff through the first seven games of the season?
According to two NFL officials I spoke to last week, they project Ball to be a third or fourth round pick.
Retro Jordans For Sale Much has been made and rightfully so about Stephen Strasburg's and Gio Gonzalez's contributions to the Washington Nationals' pitching staff this season.
But another pitcher who excelled for the Nationals was Jordan Zimmerman, the pride and joy of Auburndale, WI (population 703) and UW Stevens Point.
Zimmerman posted a 12 8 record with a 2.89 earned run average for the Nationals this season.
Said UW Stevens Point coach Pat Bloom about his former star: "It sends a message to our recruits that you can play Division III baseball and pursue your dreams whatever they may be."
Authentic Air Jordans For Sale When was the last time the Marquette University men's basketball team had an authentic man in the middle or, as the late, great Al McGuire used to say, an "aircraft carrier?" Probably not since former St. Catherine's High School star Jim McIlvaine blocked or altered virtually every shot taken in the lane in the early '90s.
But the Golden Eagles appear to have a legitimate chance to land a talented big man in Joel Embiid, a 6 foot 11 unpolished gem who attends The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla. Embiid hails from Cameroon, where he was encouraged to play the game by fellow Cameroonian Luc Mbah a Moute of the Milwaukee Bucks.
"He's going to be really good," Mbah a Moute said of Embiid. "He's only played basketball for about 16, 18 months, but he can do so many things already. His potential is enormous."
Mbah a Moute said Embiid has made official visits to Texas and Kansas and will visit Virginia this weekend. He is expected to visit Florida and Marquette in November.
One of the Bucks' non roster players is guard Mustapha Farrakhan. He is the grandson of Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, the controversial and outspoken religious and social leader.
"He's my grandfather; I love him to death," Mustapha said.
Mustapha attended the University of Virginia and played for Tony Bennett, the former UW Green Bay star and son of legendary coach Dick Bennett.
"He taught me a lot," Mustapha said of Tony Bennett. "He's an intense coach, especially on the defensive end. Defense was always a high priority with him. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to play for him."
Even the great ones make mistakes sometimes: In Sunday's game against Seattle, Hall of Fame in waiting New England quarterback Tom Brady was called for grounding twice. Speaking of rarities, did you notice where the St. Catherine's High School football team had three safeties Friday night against Milwaukee Thomas More? I think Nike should produce a new line of shoes called "Air Baumgartner." Just 10 more days until the Racine County Sports Hall of Fame banquet at the Racine Marriott, 7111 Washington Ave. in Mount Pleasant. Tickets can be purchased by calling (262)
