Week of December 10th, 2018

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

*Congrats to Kyler Murray on winning the Heisman. He beat out two quality QBs for the award. Oklahoma has to be in football heaven with back-to-back Heisman winners. 

*The end of the Dolphins-Patriots game was a classic. You don’t see many NFL games end with multiple laterals working for a winning score.

*Army deserves a big cheer for beating Navy for the third straight year. Congrats to the Cadets!

*Let’s hope the NCAA investigators  do diligent research and help clean up the dirty laundry that exists in the college game. Man, it would be embarrassing if a school that gets to cut the nets down and wins it all was guilty of wrongdoing.

 *The Duke recruiting machine rolls on ⁦with the addition of Vernon Carey. He’s⁩ a future super PTPer! Wow, bye-bye ⁦Zion Williamson⁩ after this year and here comes Vernon.

Think Dick Vitale only knows College Hoops? Think again. This is the place to learn Dickie V's quick thoughts about this week in sports.
