The sports world suffered a big loss Thursday with word that beloved announcer Craig Sager passed away after a battle with cancer. He was 65.
Sager was recognized for his work on the NBA with TNT in recent years. But he had experience with college football as well. He worked on the sport for CNN in the 1980s, and he did college football sideline reports for TBS in the 2000s.
As expected, many offered tributes to Sager online. Below is a collection of some of the thoughts shared.
