Week 4 does not look a exciting card to me.Did post K.St Thursday,now 16-6 this year,though picks are in my blog on my space.Will post today.Like Ga.Sou.as said in last blog,these squad always comes to play,and S.Ala.a little beat up after Miss.St.game last week,in their 1st Sunbelt game will take em in average wager.Like bama,though they have played nobody since W.Vir,who is not bad at all and has a lot of speed.Bama has not covered yet,and crimson faithful eager to cash.Flordia looking ahead last week?I don't think so as had hands full with Kentucky.Bama good enuff to steamroll gators and i will wager a double bet they do just that.Got a tip on San Diego St and points to win straight up and will wager normal on it though no nothing about either team.Like EC but playing the games they have in a row will only bet them small.Will take Houston and lay 20 something and this is strickly a fade UNLV bet as their defense is one of worst i have seen this year,normal wager.Will take W.Vir. and points as they have speed to match sooners and Okies usually drop one they ought to win,have weakness for home dogs anyway.Thats it for me but if anybody reading would not bet St over LSU,though points is rather enticing and if you wager on FSU-Clemson affair don't let qb issue give you a brain lock,seminoles have pro sized OL and have plenty of athletes on defense.BYU in revenge mode but VA,can play also and whipping Texas not that big of deal.GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!
Week 3 not that exciting but college ball always entertaining.On posted plays in my blog, weeks one and two have been good,with 9 winners and 3 losers.I do not post much on the forum because ,well,just because.I do not fancy myself a professional handicapper nor do i want to trade barbs with other cappers.That said here are my thoughts and observations for week 3.I like East Carolina and points over Va.Tech,who is primed for letdown after big win over Ohio St last weekend.Pirates QB,very good and almost pulled a upset over S.C.last Saturday.A couple off ill timed picks which lead to 10 points for Gamecocks,was the difference, who could have been looking ahead to Ga but once the game was on most assuredly dropped those thoughts.Pirates have everything to gain,nothing to lose and will get my vote for a average wager.Do not know anything about Central Michigan but will take em in small wager over Syracuse bunch that barely got by Villanova team.Purdue was handed a beatdown by this squad,they should be sky high after that,and eager to take field.Speaking of Ohio St,they could come out flat against Kent St,but it won't matter.Urbans team will get going and Buckeyes should roll up a easy win,laying big lumber here but got the best of it hitting them Sunday-29.Will take Ga Southern team and points also.These guys always come to play and Tech good but in a instate game the dog usually up and triple option no secret to either.Did get 22 when we hit em Sunday and drop to 17 concerning,but doesn't matter with us.Louiville good no doubt, but Virginia defense stout,especially front 4.Ucla could not move ball on them and they are as good or better than LV offense.Virgina and 6.5 in a bigger than normal wager.Will also take Georgia and lay 6 and, yes everybody and brother on em,and Spurrier as home dog with nobody giving them a chance and all that jazz,has to be on Ga.backers mind but this Georgia team is good,REAL GOOD.No love lost between anybody in either program.Nuff said.Like big OL and backs and 10 points which will be re bet(is that a word?),now that line gone to 17.Matter of fact will double wager this one.TCU has to prove it,and Samford not convincing to me.Two more to go and these are biggest plays of week.I like everything that Tenn. has done this year and coach Jones has this program headed in right direction,time will bear that out if he stays.Sooners on other hand very good team and speed,speed,speed.Being at home big help too.Yes we all know Stoops and bunch usually blows one they shoulda won most every year but don't think thats the case this week as Vols good enough to bring out best in Oklahoma team.Will lay 21 as we hit this Sunday also and tag it a big play.Other big play this week will be Northern Illinois who we got at 8 Sunday.Since it has moved to 10,but if they show up,this UNLV defense one of worst i have seen this year,and unless they have made great stride in last two weeks we will fade them.So thats it ,take em for what its worth,its only opinion,and good luck to all.
HEAT AND HUMIDITY UP IN ALABAMA,IT IS BRUTAL OUTSIDE,SAN JOSE WILL HAVE HANDS FULL SAT.AND AUBURN WILL RUN IT UP IF THEY CAN,31 NOT ENOUGH.OLE MISS DID NOT RUN THE FOOTBALL WELL THURSDAY AND WITH THAT FAILED TO CONTROL CLOCK.THEY ALSO GAVE UP 399 TO A GOOD BOISE ST.SQUAD.VANDY TURNED IT OVER 7 TIMES AGAINST TEMPLE,ONE A FUMBLE PICKED UP AND RUN FOR TD 40 SECONDS BEFORE HALF ENDED.ONE QB THREW 3 PASSES TWO PICKED BY TEMPLE,BOTH LED TO SCORES.TEMPLE ONLY 2 FOR 17 ON 3RD DOWN,AS VANDY SHOWED THEY STILL COMPETED.VANDY ALWAYS GIVES OLE MISS FITS.21 A TEMPTING PROP.OH,ONE OTHER TID BIT,VANDYS LEADING RUSHER FROM LAST YEAR DID NOT PLAY.WILL PLAY VS.REBELS.UAB A LIVE WIRE VS BULLDOG TEAM THAT WILL NOT TAKE THEM SERIOUS.THIS IS A BETTER TEAM THAN MOST THINK AND HAS A HELL OF A COACH AND STAFF.I DO NOT LIKE PLAYING TEAMS TO COVER AND NOT WIN AND MAY GET MY HAT HANDED TO ME ON THESE TWO GAMES,VAN.AND UAB.UAB IS A TEAM TO KEEP EYE ON ALL YEAR,IF VANDY DOES NOT PLAY WELL SATURDAY FADE MATERIAL REST OF YEAR FOR ME.TROY IS UNDERSIZED FOR A D1 FOOTBALL TEAM.WAY UNDERSIZED BUT OTHER TEAMS IN SUNBELT ARE AS WELL,HOWEVER FROM WHAT I HAVE LEARNED IS TROY IS NOT MUCH BIGGER THAN A 7A HIGH SCHOOL TEAM.THE LARGEST CLASS IN ALABAMA,CREATED ONLY THIS YEAR FOR SCHOOLS WITH MORE THAN 1600 STUDENTS.DUKE WAS ONLY 3 FOR 12 AGAINST ELON AND GAVE UP CLOSE TO 350 YARDS,DO NOT KNOW IF THAT WAS GARBAGE TIME OR NOT.TROY WILL GIVE DUKE ITS BEST SHOT AND HC BLAKENEY NOBODYS FOOL.18 OR 17 MAY HOLD UP IN THIS SPOT IF NOT OUTRIGHT WIN.LOOKING AT COLORADO ST.

Read a lot of post on covers and have posted.Had some winners and big losers.I play with a local and made my first bet on Auburn in 74 Gator Bowl over Texas.Won and was hooked.I coached high school football and lived for Friday Night 32 years.Does that make me a better bettor?Not at all.I do see things others don't from the post i read as i do not always" follow the ball"I also stay as local as possible,learning that the hard way.I did not post my plays and rarely do.I will here and why.Week one i took A&M Thursday simply because no one gave em a chance.I did not expect that result,that said i am not sold they can get up for EC,correct all the mistakes i saw,and blow out this Pirate bunch who put up 50 something.EC and the points.Have great respect for Boise St and like the HC,Petersons old OC,Ole Miss had too much speed and to many athletes and it showed in the 4th.Vandy got drilled by Temple but would not overreact to that and i see this year in and out,Vandy always gives Ole Miss fits.Van and 21 for me.Sat i took UAB knowing that Clark who took over UAB would get all his players and coaches have.Clark excelled in this state at the 6A level going to state championship 4 times in 9 years,winning 3.He rode Joey Jones,a Alabama player legend and also a great high school coach himself,rode his coattails to start the program at South Alabama.SA played a Sun Belt schedule last year and are in this year,but Clark left and took Jax St HC spot,a FBS school in Alabama and where he played and graduated .Going to UAB shocked all.Everybody who could talk or write was calling him a dumbass and saying his career was finished.Anybody in the know around here knew Clark is a sharp guy and there is a reason he went there and it is not money.Blakeney at Troy is getting complacent,has for last few years,Shane Wadsworth an Auburn player legend is waiting in the wings,position coaches and the OC and DC are calling the shots.All that said will take UAB and 30.Miss St expecting another S.Miss,and the coaches will tell the players you cant sit back but saying and doing are two different things.Troy still proud program and will give Duke all they want,will take Trojans and the 18.Ride UAB a while,depth and injuries will do em in eventually but they will surprise a few till then.Played UCLA also,like their defense and Moras coaching.Also think the QB is very good and OL outstanding,but knew nothing of this stout front Virginia has.Dont know if time and travel had anything to do with it,i would have thought they would have traveled early.All i do know is UCLAs D won it and i lost it.Pay heed to both.Played Arkansas and points over Tigers knowing Arkansas was gonna do what they did,get behind those big lineman and run downhill and throw in the play action pass.They did.Malzone putting Marshall in at half was classless.Johnson answered the call and went 12 for 16 and 2 TDs and what was his reward?No playing time in 2nd half.At least play the kid the first series or two.He stepped up.Malzone stepped down as he usually does.Marshall broke the team rules.Message should have been sent we can win without you,instead it was play the guy rules do not REALLY matter.Or maybe more than meets the eye in this spot.Players not playing hard enough,well i do not know,will find out,still thought it stunk ,and not because i lost.Game turned on pic 6 and Ole Miss lb got tossed for same hit.Gonna enforce the rule just be consistent.I am surprised Malzone did not opt to tack one more TD late in game,he has before.Arkansas coaches are most sure questioning some of their play calling especially after rain delay.All that said Auburn will score as much as possible and Alabama no place to be in late summer heat and humidity for Bay Area squad.Heat is TUFF.HUMIDITY even tuffer and 31 ain't enough for Spartan crew.Lay the lumber.Played Wisc and got 5 which was enough.Had to think they had same plan as razorbacks,get behind that big OL and run downhill.Ask the qb to manage the game and not beat themselves.Two costly picks in 4th did just that,beat themselves.QB threw for fiftyand against a fast and athletic LSU defense that will not get it done.They will have to find another qb or he will have to make a lot of improvement fast,or they will see strong safties down in the box fast once they read run.Sunday i just wanted under the 52 respecting Utah St's D and knowing Coach Jones is the man to bring the Vols back.He is a excellent coach,has put together a good staff,had a great recruiting class,and the Volunteer faithful are behind him.I added Tenn as a play only after realizing everybody on this site was chucky this and chucky that and Tenn is awful and Utah St will beat em bad.One guy posted the qb could beat them by his self.The young man is a great player but he had a terrible injury last year and well those of you that saw the game saw a Tenn. team that was ready to play.Thats enough for me.The haters and trolls will come out bashing this blog and now i'm a know it all and all that.I am not that.I do know a little about the game and it is a great one and how much work and time players and coach's put in.High school is 70 hours plus,college more,and pro even more.Remember Virmile sleeping in office in Philly days.I know i misspelled his name but some will remember.In any event i play a half a game,.never more than two bills,never play teasers and only now and again a 2 or 4 team par for twenty.I WILL PLAY IN WEEK 2---E.C+14,UAB+31,TROY+18,AUBURN-31 AND A FEW PROS,DALLAS+5,AND HOUSTON-3 AND UNDER IN TAMPA /CAROLINA GAME.IF YOU LIKE TO BLOG PLEASE CONTACT MY SPACE,I LIKE TO LEARN OF OTHER TEAMS AND COACH'S AND ADD FRIENDS.DO NOT LIKE TO BASH OTHERS OR BE BASHED BUT DO NOT WORRY ABOUT IT.TO BE HONEST I DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHERE IF ANYWHERE THIS WILL APPEAR.BEST TO ALL
