Let’s see here, uh, sports news ... sports news ... sports things ... sports ... [looks under couch cushions] ... hmm. Well I may be all out. I’ll check the attic tomorrow just to be sure, but it’s not looking good.

On the basketball recruiting front, there have been some modest developments. Landers Nolley committed to Memphis—NC State made the initial cut for Nolley but wasn’t in his final three (UGA, Ole Miss being the other two). The Wolfpack offered a new 2021 prospect: four-star wing Michael James. He’s a top-100 kid.

I’ve kinda lost track of State’s transfer board, though the Pack made George Mason transfer guard Justin Kier’s top 10 last week. He’s supposedly cutting his list to five at some point this week. He missed most of 2020 with an injury but had an excellent 2019 season.

Lord Kelvin, excellent beard-haver. Made a lot of money doing smart guy things.

Lord Kelvin, Scottish mathematician and physicist, 1899. Born William Thomson, Lord Kelvin (1824-1907) was educated at Glasgow and Cambridge. He was Professor of Natural Philosophy (Physics) at the University of Glasgow for 53 years, and is shown here delivering his last lecture there. Kelvin was a pioneer of thermodynamics and electromagnetic theory and devised the temperature scale that bears his name. He also directed work on the first transatlantic cable telegraph, which gave him considerable wealth. He was probably the first scientist to become wealthy through his work.
