This and That

 

Week of October 16th, 2017 

 

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

*I cant believe USA will not be in the World Cup.  I don’t know much soccer but loved watching us compete. No red,  white and blue hurts!

*The Mets should get on the phone at once and lock John Farrell up NOW !

*It was upset city in college football. Clemson, Auburn, Washington and Washington State were top 10 teams that lost.

*When will NCAA finally make a DECISION ON the academic situation involving UNC? Totally embarrassing!

*NC State's Braxton Beverly was denied eligibility by the NCAA. He transferred from Ohio State when Thad Matta left and he should have been given a chance to play right away. 

*The Raiders have dropped four in a row. They lost to the Chargers and Derek Carr did play.
