Already week 4 It goes too fast. Gotta enjoy it.
5-2-1 last wk. 3/3 winning weeks. But it was about this time last yr when we couldn't hit the ground falling out of a plane.
As always will share thoughts on as many games as possible. Will not get to any detailed writeups until tomorrow. May try and grab a couple early lines today and share thoughts with the wackos like us checking out the Sunday openers.
GL guys !!! Mega.

Was great to get the season started
4-3 last wk. Disappointed to leave off Ga Southern and La Tech from the card.....Glad left off Marshaa Marshaa Marshaa and LSU under so I guess it worked out. Wk 2 and Wk 3 are usually the toughest for us because you tend to think you know more than you really do - So hard to not overreact
As per usual - will jot down thoughts on as many games as possible - Take the info for what it is and make your own calls.
Had to mention ....vs BYU....The UConn refs did what they could (15 penalties for BYU/150 yards - several more were declined......Pass bounces 14 times - ruled a UConn catch....etc....) but BYU still prevailed and covered....More importantly - the UNDER prevailed even with BYU running hurry up offense up 18 pts with 4 min left . Those UConn home games always take a yr off your life but they are the best.
On to this wk.....
Arizona 7 UTSA (54)
This is a tough one for us....early in the yr - we have some big variances between our "fair point spread" and the vegas line - mostly b/c it is so tough to really know how good teams are this early in the season....We have this line closer to 3 points so normally would be an automatic bet....but.........Az put up almost 800Y offense vs stinky UNLV and their freshman qb looked great....UTSA almost SHUTOUT a very good Houston team - the same team that hung 59 on them last yr....Hmmmmm....Obviously the 20 returning starters are helping UTSA get better and they have now won 6 straight including 3 over LY bowl teams...Home this Friday....lost at Az LY 38-13.....The wild card is that Az offense is SO ridiculous that UTSA could play a great game and still lose by 14......Gonna pass for now but strong lean UTSA....Line hanging strong at 7 which suggests reverse trap public fade money

We are back for another season of NCAA football. Great to see so many brilliant-yet-prickly old-time greats in here as well as some fresh meat. Let's make some paper ...have some laughs......share some knowledge.......and not kill each other in the process.

As per usual - we will post our thoughts on as many games as possible. You will always see the thought process so that you can agree and play along - or fade our pathetic azz away . Always room for opposing viewpoints as long as we all stay civil.
We keep it simple. We don't make up lines. We don't make up 7 figure bet amounts . We understand we will lose some bets.... but hopefully we end up having another great year.
Posting a bit later this year as last offseason was just too much - 4 months of arguing the Alabama/VT game. Fights ensued. Blood was spilled. Teeth were kicked in. And nobody was the better for it.
On to week 1. It's go time. MEGA
Race 1 today.
Imagine you had $40,000 on the #5 to show. In fact $42,498/$46,077 of the show pool was bet on the #5. 92% to show. It's a LOCCCCKKKKK right ? All he has to do is finish top 3 at odds of 1/2 and you collect 10 cents profit on every $2. Risking $40,000 to win $2,000 on PARX donkeys.
Well he wins. Whew. Too easy.
He is DQ'd for interference coming out of the gate.
Ooops. There goes $40K.
Payouts. 3/1 winner. 7/2 2nd horse. 17-1 3rd horse.
8.20 3.80 16.60
This happens quite often. Always find it amusing that anyone would be dumb enough to put huge cash on a big fav to show. You miss once - You are jumping off a bridge - either voluntarily - or with the "assistance" of Bullet Tooth Tony and Frankie Four Fingers who know you can't pay back the $40,000 you borrowed for a LOCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.
