Weak Ending for Strong Era

Talk about going out with a whimper! It’s hard to imagine a more demoralizing finish to the Charlie Strong era at the University of Texas than this past Friday’s disappointing 31-9 loss to road underdog TCU. It was the polar opposite of the exciting 2016 debut on the same field Labor Day Weekend when the Longhorns electrified Austin with an exciting win over Notre Dame. But, it was a fitting end to a season that left the...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 13 Preview

Kansas Jayhawks (-27) @ Kansas State Wildcats (O/U: 53 1/2) Rivalry week has rolled into the roaring dumpster fire that has been the Big 12 this year, but there are still some interesting matchups for those who are looking to offset some of their Black Friday expenditures.  This week the Kansas Jayhawks head to Manhattan fresh off of their first win over the Texas Longhorns since 1938- a time where men were men and TCU was...

Week 13 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week: South Carolina @ Clemson Clemson is a huge favorite in this one, but South Carolina will keep this one closer than expected. The Gamecocks are a great pick at +24, and there’s a few reasons why. First, the Gamecocks offense has been completely different with Jake Bentley at quarterback. There is talent at the skill positions–most namely Deebo Samuel and Bryan Edwards–and...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 13...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 12       Ohio State (-6.5) vs. Michigan – Noon on ABC Both of these programs have been seemingly waiting for this game for the entirety of 2016. There’s plenty on the line: a potential birth in the College Football Playoff, a Big Ten East championship and the momentum and bragging rights in this bitter rivalry that has been reignited by the arrival of Urban Meyer...

New Era Looms at Texas after Debacle in Kansas

Just seconds into this past Saturday’s college football game between the Texas Longhorns and 23-point underdog Kansas Jayhawks, the Horns broke a short pass play into a long 75-yard touchdown. It was 7-0 after one play…and 5-5 Texas was on its way to bowl eligibility! The rest of the day was such a DISASTER that Texas now may not go to a bowl, and will certainly be welcoming in a new coaching regime in short order. The only...

Teams, Situations and Traps to watch out for in th...

Hangover Games  Iowa -10 at Illinois….Not sure if Iowa can get up for this one after just beating Michigan at home…This one is also on the road and Illinois has a revenge motive after last seasons 29-20 road lost. Pitt -7.5 vs Duke…Seems like a low line for someone who just beat #2 Clemson on the road…Line could be low as the books also are not sure if the Panthers are able to get up for this game...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 12 Preview

Texas Tech Red Raiders (-3) @ Iowa State Cyclones (O/U 75.5) How things have changed since I had to step away for a few weeks.  West Virginia’s Skyler Howard went from Mr. Consistent to an interception machine, Baylor went from a playoff contender to looking like they won’t be favored in another game this season, TCU went from conference title contender to looking at a losing record only to bounce back to being a...

Week 12 ACC Pick of the Week

ACC Pick of the Week- Louisville @ Houston The College Football Playoff rankings came out Tuesday night with Louisville at No. 5, and the first thing I worry about here is the amount of attention being put on Houston. It could go one of two ways: the Cardinals players will rally behind the No. 5 spot and play with a lot of intensity, or the focus won’t be there early in the game. Houston doesn’t own a spot in the...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 12       Ohio State (-22) at Michigan State – Noon on ESPN After a dip in the middle of the season that saw them lose to Penn State and struggle against Indiana, Wisconsin and Northwestern, the Ohio State Buckeyes are now clicking on all cylinders. In the past two weeks, they have beaten both Nebraska and Maryland by a score of 62 to 3. The Buckeyes have put more...

Texas Takes Fifth Loss, as West Virginia Survives ...

Sometimes you watch a college football game and come away thinking that both teams should hold their heads high because each played as well as they could. But, in this past Saturday’s 24-20 victory for the West Virginia Mountaineers over the Texas Longhorns…it was more the opposite…   West Virginia won despite turning the ball over four times against a defense that hasn’t done a good job of forcing turnovers all season....
