This and That

 

Week of October 15th, 2018

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

*I am not naive as I know cheating has been going on in college basketball for years. Let’s not indict everybody. Wait until all the testimony in the current trial comes out. Let’s hope the NCAA can clean up this mess.

*This is going to be a big year for Chris Mullin and St. John’s. They got good news as All-SEC guard Mustapha Heron, the transfer from Auburn, was granted a waiver and declared eligible for the upcoming season.

*You can hear it in John Calipari’s voice. He believes he has a special team playing for Big Blue Nation.

*LSU’s win over Georgia and Michigan’s 25-point blowout of Wisconsin were two of the most impressive performances last weekend. A toast to those two.

*There were upsets galore in college football. Washington, West Virginia, Penn State and Auburn all went down. There is a lot of parity in college football this season, though Alabama is the creme de la creme.

*The Rams remained unbeaten, though it was not easy winning in Denver.

*The Raiders continued to struggle, putting up three points against Seattle in London.

Quote of the Week
