  • Nigel in the Players' Tribune

    Not sure if anyone has posted this but I just saw it. Great read and a good look at behind the scenes this year from Nigel's perspective

      wow, nice find!

      awesome NWG took time to write this piece.

      knew about his children, yet didn't know Coach Few's dog attends practice as well -- cool.

      The star rating of threads is really annoying imo, yet if there ever was a 5-star post/article, its this one.

                Really nice article by NWG... especially those last four sentences. I sure hope he stays around for another year.

                  Honestly, one of the best college hoops article I have ever read....even if it wasn't about the Zags. I hope Nigel Williams-Goss keeps writing.

                          I loved that ending.

                          This article tells me that our Zags are going to play with passion! I couldn't be more excited for this tournament.
