This and That

Week of November 30th, 2020

Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:
  • Alabama didn’t have Nick Saban on the sidelines but still prevailed over Auburn. This Tide team looks ready for the college football playoff!
  • My preseason #1 Gonzaga got stronger as Santa Claus came early for Mark Few. Guard Andrew Nembhard, a transfer from Florida, was cleared by the NCAA to play immediately. Really adds strength to the backcourt.
  • The Zags really showed something in a win over a ranked Kansas team. Drew Timme, Corey Kispert ad Jalen Suggs will be special al season.
  • There were several great performances in football over the weekend. Buffalo’s Jaret Patterson ran for 409 yards and eight touchdowns.
  • Tyreek Hill had 269 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Derrick Henry ran for 178 yards and three TDs.
  • In a quality game between St. Louis and LSU, the Billikens, behind 32 by Javonte Perkins, beat the Tigers. Cameron Thomas, a Diaper Dandy, had 25 and will be a prolific scorer for LSU.
