Colts win again

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

Dec. 5, 2005 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP

USC and Texas were so impressive in blowout wins, setting up a BCS dream, a national championship game at the Rose Bowl. That should be something special with Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and Vince Young in the spotlight.

The Indianapolis Colts improved to 12-0 with an easy win over the Tennessee Titans.

Billy Wagner signed a big deal with the Mets, Rafael Furcal went to the Dodgers while Paul Konerko decided to stay with the White Sox.

The Tennessee Lady Vols beat Texas by 41 points earlier in the week. Then Pat Summitt's team won at Stanford. Candace Parker and company look pretty good so far.

Jermain Taylor won a unanimous decision over Bernard Hopkins to keep his middleweight championship.

Houston, coached by Tom Penders, upset LSU and Arizona last week.

STOCK DOWN

Steve Mariucci was fired by the Detroit Lions.

The Buffalo Bills blew a 21-0 lead and lost at Miami Dolphins.

Pete Rose saw his window of opportunity for being on the Hall of Fame ballot close.

Kentucky was upset at Rupp Arena by a young North Carolina squad.

Virginia Tech and LSU were upset in conference championship football games.

George Karl received a two-game suspension for criticizing officials after a loss to the Nets.

Dick Vitale coached the Pistons and the University of Detroit before broadcasting ESPN's first college basketball game in December 1979. Send him a question for possible use on ESPNEWS.
