NCAA 2013 - Who is a Jew?

The NCAA BBall season has begun (watching a close MSU/Kentucky game right now). Below in BLUE you will find the players we had found that are your Jewish ballers to watch this season. We are on a search for more. The group in RED has a Jewish surname with the possibility of being Jewish (could be some we have missed). If you have any information that helps send it our way (info@thegreatrabbino.com). Are assumptions that most of the bottom names are NOT Jewish, but worth a crowd sourcing shot.

Ausmus Tagged as New Tigers Manager


We know we are late to posting this (check twitter we acted quickly there) but awesome news! Former Jewish MLBer Brad Ausmus was tagged to replace Jim Leyland as the new manager of the Detroit Tigers. Ausmus inherits a mega lineup featuring Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera and Ace pitchers Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer (rumors circulating he might be traded). Mazel Tov to Ausmus! Now if only Lawrence Frank could get back into a head coaching spot we'd have one in all 3 major sports (Marc Trestman in the NFL).
