We picked up our copy of SI's College Preview today, and while the previews
are interesting, there are a couple of other things also of interest:
- There's a very melancholy update on Art Heyman, who was on the cover of SI
during his college years. Art is one of very few guys in this world
who can say they slugged Frank McGuire in the nuts. He sounds lonely
- SI picked their best college players of the century, and among them was
David Thompson. There's a phenomenal picture of him (there's a great one of
the Big O too) vs. Maryland. We don't remember who the guy is he's skying
over, but he's probably at least 6'7". Check out how high Thompson got.
It's hard to explain if you never saw him play.
- There's a piece on how assistants are expected to take the fall for head
coaches. It's well worth reading.
- There's a wonderful article on Magic Johnson on the last page. You
should definitely read that.
All things considered, it's a fine issue.
