I met with Kevin White, Duke’s first-year athletic director, Monday morning and started talking about books, as we did in our last conversation in June. White told me he had time to read two books on his way to and from Beijing, where he watched Mike Krzyzewski in the Olympics for about five days. He read Jim Nantz’ “Always By My Side” there and Tim Russert’s “Big Russ and Me” on the way back.
White had some nice things to say about the late Russert, as he became friends with him through–what else?–Notre Dame Football. I’ll let the man speak for himself in the clip below:
