Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !
In our final show for the year 2016, we reflect on the life and legacy of the late Craig Sager, whose equally illustrious career in sports journalism, personality, and colorful suits worn on the sideline have inspired so many in sports media. Next, we preview the upcoming NFL slate of games and predict the playoff landscape. Also on deck is a recap of the NCAA’s football awards, some pivotal NCAA hoops matchups and a look at recent rest time for big names in the NBA. This week, our panel consists of our regular KTSPod co-hosts Tyler Ball, Don Delarente, and Nubyjas Wilborn.
