Big plays <see email, text, game analysis>
Ole Miss TT under

2nd week with more loser than winners. Argh. 7-13.
Moneyline Underdog Plays <blog> <posted Fri night or Sat am as every year>
0/5 gets you the same as 2/5 in the 3X,4X,5X wheel strategy. Penn St, Ohio, Corn, Texas all agonizingly close. Definitely a PULP FICTION GIMP STYLE experience.
Season win totals <see blog>
Haven’t seen DOUBLE TEAM ACTION like this since the underrated Lunch Wagon Women sequel…….BUFFALO loses and locks in a push with lots of games left…..Kent St picks up another win en route to (hopefully) over 5 wins
ROLL TIDE goes down! Under 11.5 is a winner.
SMU one win away from over 6.5 (6-0)
FIU – they smell. not dead yet but not looking superb.
WKU – tough part of schedule is essentially over. good enough to get on a major roll (over 5.5).
S Alabama – tough 4-OT loss to Texas St
MAC – W Michigan and Toledo took a loss. Not ideal.
AAC – Houston and SMU both look good at yuuuuge prices. One game showdown with Cincy looming?
Mtn West – San Diego St, Nevada, Wyoming a good-looking trifecta.
National title – Georgia at +880 doesn’t look too shabby. Oklahoma at +800 arises from the dead with yuuuge comeback and new freak QB.
Heisman – MATT CORRAL MAN CRUSH with a big game. Is it possible to cash another Heisman BOMB?
