Week of November 13th, 2017 

 

Each week I'll write about the world of sports:

*Miami was quicker all night all over the field against Notre Dame. 

*One of the most impressive hoop wins  was Texas A&M without star Robert Williams,  over West Virginia.

*Auburn's defense did a great job in a win over Georgia. 

*Indiana  fans that have been in hoops hysteria with hiring of Archie Miller got a touch of reality. Indiana State beat the Hoosiers badly.

*Drew Brees and the Saints sent a message loud and clear after beating Buffalo. 

*The Giants hit rock bottom, losing to the Niners.
