In Memoriam: Bob Livingstone '47

+

Bob Livingstone, grandfather of my friend from college and a member of the 1946 and 1947 National Champion Fighting Irish football team, passed last week at the age of 91. Check out the story linked above for a very interesting look into Livingstone's life both on the football field and on the sand in World War II.

Could this signify the beginning of the end for the "down-in-front"ers? (A: Probably not.)

Iguodala Impresses in Olympic Warmup Against the Dominican Republic

2

Dre scored 18 points on 7 of 9 shooting including 4 of 6 from beyond the arc. Relevant text from the article: While Durant was a lock to make Team USA this summer, Andre Iguodala was far from a shoo-in. The Sixers forward snagged one of the final three spots last Saturday, touted for his defensive versatility. On Thursday night, Iguodala proved his worth -- on both ends. On a roster populated by freakish athletes, Iguodala looked the freakiest of all. He scored 18 points, going 7-for-9 from the field. Like Durant, Iguodala was also helped by the more generous international 3-point shot as he drilled 4 of 6 from downtown. As advertised, Iguodala dogged the Dominicans all night -- deflections, steals, entry passes that never materialized because his long limbs plugged the lanes. When necessary, he raced from perimeter to paint, switched out for the point guards and generally caused mischief. "It's something Coach [Mike Krzyzewski] talked about in one of the meetings," Iguodala said. "He wanted guys to have two different types of egos. One ego is going out there and representing your country. Then have the ego of your role. My role is defense." As one of the best wing defenders in the game, Iguodala frequently finds himself defending the point in crucial possessions as a member of the 76ers. Given the premium Krzyzewski is placing on ball pressure and Iguodala's aforementioned role, it's highly likely the forward will log important minutes in key spots.

Will Andre Iguodala Nab a Spot on the Olympic Team?

Five guys (Davis, Gay, Gordon, Harden, and Iguodala) are vying for the two remaining spots.

5-Star S Recruit, Shaq Thompson, Brings ND Back Into the Running

He has also dropped SC from consideration. Interesting tidbit at the end concerning Tee Shepard's (4-star CB) announcement at the Army AA Game - hopefully he stays true to his ND verbal.
