This and That

Week of December 2, 2019

 

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

*Hey, I want to know what are all those naysayers that claimed when Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson was drafted by the Ravens, that he could never be a success as a QB are thinking now. Ask the Rams if he can play QB! The NFL can get the MVP trophy made NOW! It is not close.

*Stephen F. Austin’s win at Duke was a shock. Nate Bain, who hit the winning shot, had a GoFundMe page that escalated. He lost his house in The Bahamas.

*Three years in a row the Fighting Irish have won 10 or more games. That is special. Congratulations to coach Brian Kelly.

*The Buckeyes are so explosive on offense. The win over Michigan just showed how good Ohio State is.

*Tip of the hat to DePaul, unbeaten with wins over Iowa and Minnesota. The Blue Demons were picked last in the Big East preseason poll.

*Who would have thought the Bengals, Dolphins and Redskins would win on the same weekend?

Quote of the Week

“Rutgers had no choice but to close the deal for Greg Schiano. He’s the right choice to bring the Scarlet Knights from the depths of despair."
