DICK'S PICKS

DICK'S EARLY PICKS FOR TOP FIVE FOR 2017-18 SEASON

1. Kentucky

2. Michigan State

3. Arizona

4. Kansas

5. Louisville

 

Week of September 25th, 2017 

 

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

*A memo to MLB teams: get all teams to comply and extend netting down 1st & 3rd base lines at least to the end of dugouts.

*How big is Husker Nation? Just ask ex-AD SHAWN EICHORST, who was fired! Blaming Shawn is absurd 

*Would love to see Carmelo Anthony with LeBron James. Carmelo has not been treated right by the Knicks over the last two years. 

*Sir Charles, the NBA stars are not babies. They simply want to play at a high level, which is better for fans as well.

*Ok my Bucs were routed by the Vikings. Defense was not as good as Bucs fans expected, team must regroup.

*Patriots staged great comeback to win. Tom Brady finds ways to get it done.
