    ESPN miss a chance to bow before the great god Coack K? Unpossible.

    That’s D1. The record is Harry Statham
  4. Coach K had a great response.
    He had high praise for Summit.

    You're overstating it. Nobody else says K is a great god coack. Only you say K is a great god coack.

    On Sportscenter this morning:
    Miguel Andujar: 3rd Yankees player with xbh in 7 straight games before 24th birthday (DiMaggio and Mantle)

    That's a good one.

    So it's pretty clear the sportscenter "stat" modus operandi is find some no name and feat he accomplished - and then find when a Mount Rushmore player did the same thing.

    He's not Thaddeus Young, he's a top rated rookie. And the number isn't artificial, like 1.4 steals; it's a streak of as long as you keep it going.

    Yes but only if you excluded the ‘before his 24th birthday’. That seems arbitrary and forced

    He's really young. You get that all the time in all sports.

    Again to show my naivete, but for the life of me I'll never understand why 24 is middle age for NBA or NFL but quite young for MLB.
