THREE FOR BART: Wright, KenPom, Nomads

  1. 9 exits on America’s football highway – If you’re anything like me you like the stories of everything you cant’ see. It’s not even the behind the scenes stuff but rather everything that has created everything that makes whatever we see before us relevant. There’s a reason something is important. It’s not just because it’s happening. Wright captures that here. It’s football.
  2. What I did this summer – Above any essay or anything you read about today’s tip off, this might be the most important. I got a message from our own @spencerbsmith that he bought his first KenPom subscription Wednesday night. The timing of such was perfect. It came on the heels of a twitter trolling in which it was once again brought to my attention that some people just don’t get that the premise of Ken’s work. Anyhow, here’s how he’s made his site better. I appreciate it.
  3. Keep Moving – I’ve often been asked, “Adam, you love basketball so much and you seem to know it. You’ve even coach it! Why don’t you pursue coaching?” Because of this life. I couldn’t handle it. It’s why I have so much respect for the guys that do. This is above and beyond their jam. They are basketball coaches and relationship builders and they can make or break your program.
