This and That


Week of January 14th, 2019

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

*Congrats to Dabo Swinney and Clemson on an impressive victory over Alabama in the national championship game. The Tigers dominated on both sides of the ball. Trevor Lawrence showed why he is a PTP’er.

*It was a big week for coaching hirings in the NFL. The Jets hired Adam Gase, the ex-Dolphins head coach. The Bucs brought in Bruce Arians, the Broncos hired Vic Fangio, the Cardinals named Kliff Kingsbury.

*I had the honor to coach against Gus Ganakas I can tell you he was as good as a person that you could ever find. He was a man’s man who always had a smile whenever I would greet him at Michigan State basketball games. He loved Sparty. God please let him RIP.

*Had a fab hoops chat with the encyclopedia of roundball HUBIE BROWN. I thought I knew a little but let me tell you Hubie forgot more hoops than I ever knew.

*Mississippi had impressive wins over Auburn and Mississippi State. Kermit Davis Jr. has done a great job. The Rebels were picked last in the SEC preseason poll.

*Had to be impressed with the Patriots’performance against the Chargers. Tom Brady and Sony Michel stood out and the defense frustrated Phillip Rivers.

*Duke gutted it out without Zion Williamson for over half the game at Florida State. It was a coming out party for Cam Reddish, who hit the winningshot. RJ Barrett came up big with 32 points.
