Let's Gamble

How could I forget to post some picks for the weekend?

College:

WVU - 24.5 over MARSHALL ($100)
I will be riding WVU all year. Chances are I will hit 75% of these bets. You can ride along if you like, plenty of room.

PENN STATE -18 over Notre Dame ($100)
Nothing in Jimmy Clausens life can prepare him for Happy Valley on a Sat evening. No pressure kid. No pressure.

WAKE FOREST +9 over Nebraska ($50)
I'm trying a dog here. Home opener for Wake, Nebraska maybe looking at next week's home game vs USC. Callahan just got an extension so some complacency maybe. Give it a shot.

*I would have taken TCU +9.5 here but Aaron Brown is out.

Pro:

RAMS -1.5 over Panthers ($50 on the game, $25 on the over)
In the preview I wrote how I think the Rams are back. I think they can win that division. It starts vs. a Panther team that is sort of a enigma. Expect a high scoring game. Maybe throw a quarter on the over (43.5)

SEAHAWKS -6.5 over Bucs ($50)
The 12th man will be on the field. Alexander is a man possessed this year. I'm telling you.

TEXANS -3.5 over Chiefs ($50)
Kubiak and Schaub begin there honeymoon with a convincing win over the Herminators.

Eagles -3.5 over PACKERS ($25)
Not a fan of going against home dogs in week one but this line should be 5 or 6. The Eagles are a much better football team than the Packers.

good picks.

although WVU needs to get it going...6-3 half way through the 2nd quarter

never underestimate the power of the "in-state rivalry"

keith s said...

I like TCU today.

keith s said...

Marshall 10 - WVU 6

Upset in the making.


(s)

blue said...

no (s)

marshall is playing really well.

At this point, WVU needs to get it going to cover the spread

blue said...

UM/Oregon is on tv today...it'll be nice to see michigan get beat again, this time on TV

blue said...

I think i'm taking Samford to cover against GA Tech.

(S)

JFreak said...

At least WVU had the balls enough to play on the road.

keith s said...

OSU is about to be losing 2-0. Awesome.

blue said...

never underestimate those Akron Zips

blue said...

i'm already tired of hearing the OU fight song

keith s said...

I've said that my whole life.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

TPS shitstorm. This sucks

keith s said...

2-0 Akron

JFreak said...

Meiz, stop working.

It's not worth it.

JFreak said...

At least find a small tv and just watch some games.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I still can't believe the #5 team in the nation is playing on fucking Versus tonight.

blue said...

look at it this way meiz...at least they are on tv at all.

or not on the stupid big-10 network

JFreak said...

That OU play should be a fumble.

JFreak said...

I don't really want to hear "We are...Marshall" again.

keith s said...

That pic of the USC song girl on Pac10poon is fantastic.

keith s said...

Did anyone see that Marshall movie?

blue said...

hey, i get the big-10 network...awesome (s)

JFreak said...

How the hell do you get the Big 10 network and not me?

That's dumb.

blue said...

i have 5 big 10 networks...if i liked the big10 that would be awesome

blue said...

never saw the marshall movie

which USC girl? the butt picture?

Directv has the big10 network, but doesn't carry "the mountain" so we don't get mountain west games. boo hoo

keith s said...

Yea the ass

blue said...

it's a nice ass

blue said...

13-6 Marshall now at halftime...tem is probably drinking heavily

blue said...

OSU still down 2-0....upset brewing...

(s)

JFreak said...

Stupid OSU not covering.

blue said...

did Ohio State put in field turf?

didn't they used to have grass?

blue said...

oklahoma's defense is pretty damn good

JFreak said...

We know that you're Marshall.

Shut up about it.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"At least find a small tv and just watch some games."

I realized last night that I forgot to gank my sister's 5.5" B&W. won't happen a gain.

kodiac said...

I don't get the big 10 network either. Now I won't get to see Minni's dramatic run to the Rose Bowl
(s)

keith s said...

OSU is pulling away now. Eddie George just hit another 3-run homer. 6-2 now.

tem said...

fuckarshall. i am frunk.

tem said...

like it took me 10 minutes to log in drunks.

tem said...

i nedd a pwsaccw camwra for bigten 2o\ poons.

tem said...

slatn should try to score. pat white is fucking awesome, but slaton is ap iece of shites this yearl.

keith s said...

WVU covers by .5, Vegas is good at their job.

keith s said...

OSU's defense is solid. The offense...not so much.

blue said...

i'm proud of tem today

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem is not a functional drunk like myself.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Dammit. Sahmmy's in Gainesville. I wish we could alert TP so he could go and crack DS's skull.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

*Shammy

kodiac said...

shaking head at non-functional drunks....they just need more practice.

JFreak said...

El P has TP's number.

We need to get on the horn to him.

JFreak said...

Wow, I'm doing horrible in the spread league.

JFreak said...

So...uh...Michigan?

What are you doing?

Spaceman Spiff said...

can they fire lloyd carr in game? can the players bust a varsity blues at half

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Go Blue!!!!!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I picked the Clemson/LA Monroe game right. LA Monroe to cover

JFreak said...

"can they fire lloyd carr in game? can the players bust a varsity blues at half"

How do you not go for 3 at the end of the half there? You HAVE to get points. That's just silly.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Hmmm. No Zeke today. Odd.

blue said...

Boise State sucks...i guess I knew they weren't going to run the table again this year, but Washington looks pretty tough...At least Idaho is going to win

blue said...

Oregon's QB is pretty good, a couple of perfectly thrown balls, and dude is quick too

Mike Hart reminds me of Emmit Smith...if he can stay healthy he'll be a good pro

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Anybody else take Fresno to cover?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Anybody gonna be around tonight?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Blue, gimme Welker

blue said...

I took Fresno

blue said...

I would have taken oregon too, but michigan wasn't in the top 25

blue said...

zeke wasn't around today because he was probably at the WNBA championships

blue said...

I also took TCU, which looks good right now, and I took LA Tech over Hawaii, because hawaii sucks on the mainland

blue said...

btw...auburn sucks

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm shaky on Wisconsin to cover.

JFreak said...

You know, ND played pretty bad today, but I think a lot of that was Weis' conservative play calling.

With that said, Clausen look much better than I thought he would. But Chuckie kept calling those crappy swing passes. The offense was actually moving late in the 4th quarter when Weis let him loose. But that could have been because of a prevent D.

I enjoyed the amount of penalties. I think at one point it was 10-2 in favor of ND.

kodiac said...

wow, ND is terrible. At this point, Weis couldn't even win a medical malpractice suit. Luckily they locked him up for the next decade, hate to see him achieve mediocrity with someone else's recruits again.
-back to the gutter with ND, where they belong.
*Although, they may beat Michigan....lucky for them they're not playing Michigan State next week.

blue said...

UNLV barely beat a shitty Utah State team last week...wisky will cover

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Versus doesn't show down & distance. Nice network.

(s)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Or even has a 1st down marker. It's not 1996, VS.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

OK, now they're giving us down & distance.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

These announcers are horrid. Just referenced tyler Donovan as a young QB. HE'S A 5TH YEAR SENIOR!!!!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

There's also ZERO bass in the audio on this broadcast.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Why do I even have my sub-woofer on?

blue said...

versus is state of the art

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

motherfuck.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

What a rapid 1st quarter.

blue said...

how's that VTech national championship lookin there shammy

blue said...

texas is whooping on TCU now

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Vegas has some pretty nice wrinkles in their playbook.

Tyler said...

I'm watching UFC 75 on Spike. Rogan already dropped four "phenomenals" in the first two minutes.

Tyler said...

Check that, he just dropped two more. So the initial count is six phenomenals in the first three minutes.

Tyler said...

Pizza dude just showed up. On my third beer. Commercials suck, I'm used to Pay-Per-View.

Tyler said...

I like Houston Alexander. He knocked Jardine the eff out. He's a serious dude too.

Tyler said...

Gotdammin, this one's sponsored by "Good Luck Chuck". Fuck Dane Cook.

Tyler said...

Yves LaVigne!

Tyler said...

OH SNAP!

Tyler said...

Phenomenal Knee.

Tyler said...

Houston Alexander. Told y'all.

Tyler said...

"That dude is violent!"

Tyler said...

If football wasn't on tomorrow, I'd go check out that movie "Shoot 'Em Up". Looks like a good time.

Tyler said...

Random fact of the night: Polar Bears might become (nearly) extinct by 2050. Thanks for the info Yahoo.

Tyler said...

There area a lot of white people in London.

Tyler said...

Next PPV is in Anaheim. Might have to get some tickets.

Tyler said...

Fuck Dane Cook.

Tyler said...

Beer #4. I don't really understand the premise behind the videogame Bioshock, but I'm in. The only problem is I don't have an XBOX.

Tyler said...

A dude with the nickname "The Irish Hand Grenade" vs. some English dude. I can't understand what the eff the English dude is saying in the interviews, so I'm gonna go with the dude I've heard of before. Let's go Irish Hand Grenade.

Tyler said...

Good Luck Chuck. Got it UFC. Please stop.

Tyler said...

Ouch. Hand Grenade got rocked.

Tyler said...

Irish Hand Grenade (IHG) is in phenomenal condition. Thanks Rogan.

Tyler said...

IHG with a full mount.

Tyler said...

Arm bar finish. IHG is your winner. Really good fight.

Tyler said...

IHG's response to the replay when they showed him getting kicked in the head: "Yeah, that sucked"

JFreak said...

Tyler...it's not healthy to talk to yourself.

Tyler said...

New season of Ultimate Fighter looks like it's hook da hook. They showed two guys throwing a fooseball table into a swimming pool. Who does that?

Tyler said...

I know Freak. I figured this would be more of a running diary than talking to myself. But I have had four beers, so maybe that wasn't a rational thought.

Tyler said...

Cro Cop coming out to "Wild Boys" by Duran Duran doesn't really inspire fear.

Tyler said...

This fight is gonna be insane.

Tyler said...

Cheick Kongo is really black for a French dude.

Tyler said...

Kongo is huge.

Tyler said...

Kongo slipped. Now in the clinch.

Tyler said...

Wow. I did not expect it to go to the ground as much as it did in the first round.

Tyler said...

Round two, Kongo with a bunch of kicks.

Tyler said...

Kongo with a takedown and sidecontrol? Crazy.

Tyler said...

Kongo with some nice knees to the body right before the round is over.

Tyler said...

Fuck Sonic. Get some better locations.

Tyler said...

Kongo with a low blow.

Tyler said...

Ouch. Two knees right to the nuts.

Tyler said...

Cro Cop needs to step it up or he's gonna lose.

Tyler said...

Wow. Cro Cop looks like he's given up already.

Tyler said...

Kongo, unanimous decision. Cro Cop is d-u-n.

JFreak said...

You're still going at it?

Thought you would have given up by now.

Tyler said...

Dude, there's still at least two more fights. I've got nothing better to do...

Tyler said...

Freak, you gonna hit up Steak-N-Shake right about now? Might as well take advantage before they change their hours.

Tyler said...

Ok. So this next fight is between Michael Bisping, an English guy, and Matt Hamill, a deaf guy. I cannot understand what either guy is saying in their interviews.

Tyler said...

I'm going with Bisping. I like that guy and he's got skillz.

Tyler said...

Hamill came out to "Born In The USA". Basically an eff you to the London fans. How can he get pumped up to the music if he can't hear it?

U-S-A? U-S-A? I got nothin'...

Tyler said...

Bisping walking out to "London Calling". Sorry, but I'll take The Clash any day over pretty much anybody, especially Bruce.

Tyler said...

Wow, this one has a lot of action goin' on.

Tyler said...

Bisping on the defensive. I am worried a little here.

Tyler said...

Bisping is cut and his face is red from getting punched.

Tyler said...

Bisping mounting a little comeback here.

JFreak said...

no steak and shake tonight. too tired.

cause i'm going to sleep now.

Tyler said...

Aight. I'm here until this thing is over.

JFreak said...

who wins the battle of the worst teams in america next weekend?

I wouldn't be surprised if both ND and UM scored in the negatives.

Tyler said...

Hamill's coach is yelling at him, and I would guess that his ASL translator is "yelling" at him as well. Kinda funny.

Tyler said...

Wow. I've got Hamill taking the first two rounds. Bisping needs a knockout.

Tyler said...

Bisping had a good round, but I think Hamill won.

Tyler said...

Wow, Bisping won on a split-decision. That's gotta be some home cookin'.

Tyler said...

Hamill's face is pretty beat up though.

Tyler said...

Awesome. The main event is commercial free, except you've gotta sit through a trailer for Good Luck Chuck. FUCK YOU, UFC.

Tyler said...

Oh yeah, and fuck you Dane Cook.

Tyler said...

I've got Rampage in this one. So does Couture.

Tyler said...

Dan Henderson walking out to old Rage. I think it's "Wake Up" off the first album.

Tyler said...

Damn, Henderson has some nasty cauliflower ears.

Tyler said...

Rampage with the Junkyard Dog chain. I think he has his grille in.

Tyler said...

Let's Get It On!!

Tyler said...

Whole lotta action out of the gate.

Tyler said...

Henderson in control.

Tyler said...

Reversal by Rampage. Lots of clinching.

Tyler said...

Rampage with some good ground defense.

Tyler said...

Rampage on top now.

Tyler said...

The round card girl just blew me a kiss. I think she's into me.

Tyler said...

Rampage landing some bombs.

Tyler said...

Rampage's ground game is impressive. Especially against Henderson, who's a world-class wrestler.

Tyler said...

Of course as soon as I say that, Henderson reverses.

Tyler said...

Rampage just landed a bomb.

Tyler said...

Going into the fifth round.

Tyler said...

Nice little exchange, but then back to the clinch. Kinda boring.

Tyler said...

It went back and forth a little and then Henderson with a takedown. Rampage finally stands up and takes Henderson down. Strong finish by Rampage. I think Rampage won this no problem.

Tyler said...

Rampage with a unanimous decision. Nice. I'm going to bed. Good thing there's football tomorrow.

keith s said...

I won a 3 team parlay today w/ Oregon +8.5, LSU -12 and ASU -15. $20 to win $130. I think I'll go Sizzler tomorrow.

El Padrino said...

3-0 in college

The Rev said...

Three thoughts...

1. "Why not us?" should now be turned into "What were we thinking?"

2. I don't know if getting a ringing endorsement for the Super Bowl from a Giants fan is a good thing or not. And I don't know if the fact that ElP is more confident in my Birds' chances than I am is good or not. But I'll take it.

3. I notice that there are no more e-mails from TJW's dad about ND to read right now. In fact, all ND fans seem to be pretty quiet.

That's all I got for now.

tem said...

i was functional. i logged in didn't i?

tem said...

UFC judges/scorers were wierd last night.

28-27 one guy, 30-27 the other guy, 29-28 one guy split decision.

i mean, wtf is with the non consistency.

tem said...

my BL count had to be in the 20s by 2:30.

tem said...

ok, GL to all you gamblers and $$$ fantasy folks.

JFreak said...

O sjpy yjr[adypt eoyj s lmogr/

keith s said...

Is that spelt correctly?

JFreak said...

The uniforms for the US women's world cup team are UHHHGLY.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Man, the Badgers suck. They've got to drop in the poll.

Tyler said...

Fuck, I forgot about Tony Siragusa on FOX.

JFreak said...

Die pats die.

Tyler said...

Siragusa said he had an ACL when he was talking about McNabb. Gotdamn you Al Michaels.

JFreak said...

Did I mention that I love the LOS line?

I need both that and the first down line.

Tyler said...

Pennington, you throw to the guys in white, not the guys in blue.

kodiac said...

I wish TMQ was coaching the Vikes. We just punted on 4th and 1 from the Atlanta 40. Disgusting.

kodiac said...

TOUCHDOWN KEVIN WILLIAMS
WOHOOO WOHOO

kodiac said...

Ah, Joey Harrington. I miss having him in the NFC North already.

JFreak said...

I would have thought the announcers would have waited until at least the 2nd quarter to start slobbing the Patriots' nob.

keith s said...

Lots of D/ST TDs already. NO, Min, Buf, GB

JFreak said...

Indy had one, too.

Tyler said...

Iggles aren't looking so good here.

keith s said...

Damn, forgot about that. Good start for the defenses

Tyler said...

Jets almost gave it back on the kickoff.

JFreak said...

Fox's football robot is one of the stupidest things ever.

I just thought that needed to be mentioned.

JFreak said...

Nice throw there McNabb.

Tyler said...

McNabb just got picked.

Tyler said...

Green Bay's D looking surprisingly good.

keith s said...

Bulger to Holt, TD. Yay.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

GB's D is pretty nice.

JFreak said...

I wonder if Farve actually knows how to shave.

It's annoying.

kodiac said...

yeah, GB's defense is impressive. It's the one thing I'm happy about my fantasy team.

keith s said...

Sadly I don't have any additions to Pac-10 poon yesterday. In my drunken stupor I managed to lose my digital cam

keith s said...

I just realized there are some solid games this week. Hou/KC, Was/Mia, Det/Oak

kodiac said...

Holt TD? sweet

Tyler said...

Welker with four catches already. Then he dropped one.

Tyler said...

And a TD.
