Week of November 24th, 2014

Each week I will write about the world of sports:

*I was very impressed with Texas during their performance in the 2K Sports Classic in New York. This is an experienced and talented team, and Rick Barnes has reason to smile when talking about this group. I love their tenacious team defense. 

*It is going to take a little while for the Cleveland Cavaliers to become a consistent winner. They have been up-and-down early, but they will learn to play as a unit. They have so much talent and it is also an adjustment for new coach David Blatt. Give the Cavaliers a chance, things will be fine. Relax.

*My family & I send our prayers to friend Jerry Tarkanian, who was hospitalized recently with trouble breathing. Hoping you recover soon, Tark!

*Gardner-Webb upset Clemson and Old Dominion beat LSU on the hardwood. They were not cupcake city, baby!

*Don't let the NCAA basketball Selection Show lose its value by changing the current setup! That would be a mistake in my view. I know a lot has been said about transparency after seeing the process of college football this season.

*Tom Brady and the Patriots have won seven straight games. Give some credit to the defense, too. They held the Lions without a touchdown.
