I am still down 1.5 games due to a 6-1 run (30-12, 71.4% overall) by
I bet on Ohio State once in 2004 against Marshall, when the Buckeyes needed a 55-yard field goal from Nugent to beat the 3-touchdown underdog Thundering Herd. The other time? Last week. Bucks lose. Nebraska doesn't cover. Lose, lose, lose, lose, lose. Never again. Never. Again.
The season is half over. My trends continue as the same teams keep showing up. Here is what I am looking at while I
*Lines are from Tuesday at noon from Cesar's/Hilton
|should be full again by the 3rd quarter|
|Bama all day, maine|
UPDATE 10/14: 4 Rebels suspended and the line now pushes 30. STRAIGHT CA$H HOMEY
Win. Alabama 52 Ole Miss 7. Never really in doubt but on the road against a horrible team, Bama sometimes sleep walks (see 30-0 and Vandy). Where these are not bad win, you never know. Trent got rolling and Chris Leak 2.0 had no answer nor threatablility (made up word) to score on the Crimson Tide. November 5th please.
|40. At half.|
Apparently Vegas is pissed. 40? Ah screw it. On Wisconsin.
Win. Wisconsin 59 Indiana 7. From Adam Hale: Hey Indiana, we'll give you 40. Then beat you by 20.
|May get the W|
but it will be under 7
I love Robert and I don't know why everyone is on TAMU. Who cares if they get up 17 in the 3rd? If anyone can orchestrate another 2nd half comeback against the Aggies, it's RGIII. More than a touchdown underdog? Yessir.
Loss. Texas A&M 55 Baylor 28. Aggies got to a big lead late in the 3rd and keep scoring. RG3 set a school record for passing yards (430) but Tannehill threw for 415 and 6 tds (!) and that ends me taking Baylor.
|The Honey Badger will do this and|
do this a lot in Knoxville
I would be weary coming off a big game, but LSU's only not "big" game was versus Kentucky. They do not care. Bayou Bengals roll.
Win. LSU 38 Tennessee 7. Tigers started slow but then keep coming, like the entire season. November 5th.
|Can't Stop Won't Stop|
Pokes put 70 on KU and Texas is coming off a beat down from their hated rivals. Does Okie State sleep walk and does Texas come out inspired? Who cares? Gundy likes points and even if they start slow, Texas cannot keep up. Pokes by 14-21.
Win Oklahoma State 38 Texas 26. Two kickoff returns back to back, a couple long runs and long passes. Texas could have easily kept it within a touchdown but the Pokes have too much firepower. Right now they are 7.5 favorites at Mizzou. Me likey.
|Looks to rebound against the Hoos|
|Taj and Dabo getting it done so far|
Clemson hasn't gone Clemson yet and Maryland should lose by 14-17. Last week Clemson held Boston College down, and that would have been the most Clemson thing ever if they lost to the hapless Eagles. Maryland punked The U, got skunked by the powerhouse Temple, hung with WVU after almost getting run off the field and hung with the Ramblin' Wreck, so they can be pesky, especially after halftime. If this bites me I'm going to really pissed.
Win. Clemson 56 Maryland 45. Holy cow. Probably the betting game of the year. Clemson went Clemson and was down 28-10 and 34-17 but I kept looking at the clock and it was barely into the 2nd half. The Tigers had just given up a score to go down 45-42 with 7:35 left. No way they can score twice and hold a Maryland team that has been out of their mind. Sammy Watkins takes the ensuing kickoff 89 for a touchdown. Then the D holds and they get the ball back. With less than 4 minutes left, Clemson needed a late score to cover with a 49-45 lead. Of course they get a 44 yard touchdown run. They hold Maryland and cover. Had it in the bag the whole time.
Games I like but don't have the stones:
So Michigan beats Notre Dame after down 21 in the 4th. At Northwestern, they don't lose a game they would have and did lose in the past 3 years. LET'S RANK THEM 11TH NOW! THEY ARE BACK!!!!! No losses, one nice win and their rank skyrockets (see: the Fightin' Illini). I don't know about that, but 3 straight losses to Sparty and an underdog? I take Go Blue with the
Michigan State 28 Michigan 14 (14). Lots of chippy play, some dirty hits, some bad offense. Michigan got the ball down 7 and Nard Dog promptly throws a pick 6. Sparty gets the 4th win in a row over "Big Brother" and also hands Go Blue their first lost of the season for the 4th straight year.
|His boys will be ready for Kinnick|
I love taking Northwestern. I think they are frisky and Iowa looked like dog poo against Penn State last week. Should be close, and Iowa gets the nod, but unless Iowa converts 5 turnovers into touchdowns, the Hawkeyes don't keep up a touchdown lead.
Iowa 34 Northwestern 24 (10). Two middle of the road teams in the B1G duke it out. Saw maybe 10 plays and Ebbert (from Hilliard Darby who's father is my AD at Hilliard Bradley) had 4 catches. Stud. Cap City pride.
