    Default 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.

    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 don’t expect us to be perfect anytime soon,” guard Silas Melson said, “but one thing I do expect is trying to get better every day and playing tougher, harder and more physical than the opponent.”

    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.

    Absolutely wonderful. Awesome to see a player's view. Fun read. And I'll be looking for "Stella," the inbounds play.

    I just read it again. Even better the second time. He's a great writer and even better basketball player. We really are lucky to have him.
