This and That

Week of November 11, 2019

 

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

*Joe Burrow was brilliant and LSU got a huge win at Alabama. Can the Tide bounce back and get into the playoff picture?

*Minnesota remained unbeaten with a great victory over Penn State. A salute to coach PJ Fleck, who has done a remarkable job.

*A four-game suspension is too severe involving Ohio State star Chase Young. He paid back a loan and it played zero role in his recruitment. Come on NCAA, do what is right and allow Chase back NOW!

*Tough defense by Duke helped to create 28 turnovers, which was a major reason why Duke won 68-66 over Kansas. Remember this was game 1 and the Jayhawks will definitely improve in that area. Amazing that the Jayhawks were in the game despite the lack of offensive efficiency.

*Wow, hard to believe with shot clock and three-point shot that Virginia held a power five conference team a la Syracuse at home to 34 points. Players move on, but the system of Tony Bennett remains and that just means SUCCESS!

*The Ravens have had a super season and Lamar Jackson is a legit MVP candidate. Not a surprise he Ravens beat up the winless Bengals.

Quote of the Week

"Party big time in the Twin Cities. A tip of the hat to the Golden Gophers with a superb 31-26 W over Penn State. The Gophers are for real!”
