Phil KnightFresh off making the Final Four for the second straight season, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo is in high demand.  But… from whom?  It appears that the University of Oregon is looking to re-invent their program.  They want to be a powerhouse on the West Coast.  This is highly supported by Nike CEO Phil Knight, who is a huge backer of Oregon.  Investing in a top coach like Tom Izzo would immediately draw recruits and ideally turn the Oregon Ducks into a Top 15 team every year.  With all that said, Tom Izzo said that nobody from Oregon has contacted him yet.

And in the NBA, the New Jersey Nets were hoping to avoid going into the record books as the worst NBA team of all time.  They only had 9 wins, and that would tie the worst record of all time.  But, they needed to beat the San Antonio Spurs who have looked very sharp lately.  Well, the Nets came to play, and actually looked incredibly tough. It was as if they found their groove.  Brook Lopez had a monster game with 22 points and 12 rebounds, as the Nets topped the Spurs for their 10th win.  They don’t have to worry about the smell of being the worst NBA team ever.  New Jersey 90, San Antonio 84.


Donovan McNabbFinally, it seems like the Oakland Raiders are finally getting serious at quarterback.  According to inside sources, the Raiders are pursuing the Eagles Donovan McNabb. Sure, McNabb is up there in age, but he still looks good in Philly, and with Brett Favre’s 40-year old success last season, the Raiders think that McNabb might actually give them a chance to win.  Remember, the Raiders have a very good defense.  If they could just get a little offensive productivity, and, more importantly, not mess things up down the stretch, they could probably put up some wins next year.  The playoffs might be too much to ask, but at least they’re trying to give their fans a good product to watch.
