Picks Round Up

By joelb | October 30th, 2010

Michigan State lays an Egg.  Not quite but almost.  They avoided a Goose Egg with a late meaningless touchdown.  With Kirk Cousins forgetting what team he was playing for it made things very difficult for Michigan State to get anything going.  Iowa scored the first 37 points of the game actually their first touchdown would […]

By joelb | October 30th, 2010

There are only two match ups of ranked teams this week.  They are both huge games that will play a roll in who will be playing for the BCS Championship.  Both games will be played in the Midwest about 300 miles apart.  Both games are at 3:30 PM (EDT) so get your clicker ready to […]

The King and his court

By joelb | October 26th, 2010

The Heat is on, well the heat played today but they were not on.  Since they lost their first game there is no worry that they will be the first team in the NBA to ever go undefeated.  Like that was ever a possibility.  Some people were so hyped up about this team that they […]

Weekly College Football Pick Review

By joelb | October 24th, 2010

Four picks four right.  Wow!  I was sure of my picks but I was also sure that one of them would fail me. For the third week in a row the number one team in the country goes down.  I thought all season that Oklahoma was living dangerously.  Missouri showed that they were a team […]

Weekly College Football Pick of Ranked Teams

By joelb | October 23rd, 2010

There are four match ups of ranked teams.  This week will be a breaking point for my picks.  We are getting into the meat of the season and it is time to separate the real teams from the posers.  We are going to lose at least two of the unbeaten teams in College football today.  […]

What is wrong with the Packers?

By gordyb | October 22nd, 2010

For Green Bay Packers fans (and to a certain extent all who follow the NFL) recent weeks have been worrisome as the Packers have not lived up to the pre-season hype. So, exactly what is wrong with the team? Too many injuries? Talent not as strong as predicted? Rodgers having a bad year? Poor coaching? […]

Due Punishment for Deliberate Hits

By gordyb | October 20th, 2010

This past Sunday was the most egregious example of poor sportmanship that now pervades the NFL! Deliberate hits designed to injure another player need even more egregious punishment. I think I watched each and every one of those deliberate helmet-to-helmet hits. Inspite of out-raged protests by the guilty, there is no doubt that every one […]

BCS – Oklahoma Leads

By joelb | October 18th, 2010

The first BCS rankings are out and Oklahoma is number one. Six times in the 12 years of the BCS the team ranked number one to start the poll has made it to the championship game winning the whole thing twice. After seeing the first poll it does not set up well if you are […]

Weekly College Football Pick Review

By joelb | October 16th, 2010

One right and one wrong.  The one that was right was the big one.   What a crazy game the Arkansas Auburn game was.  Who would have thought that the game would have ended the way it did.  Auburn 65 Arkansas 43.  I still think that if Ryan Mallett does not get hurt this game ends differently.  […]

Weekly College Football Pick of Ranked Teams

By joelb | October 16th, 2010

This week there are only two match ups of ranked teams in College Football.  Both games should be interesting and both games  will hold some surprises. It the matchup of (1) Ohio State at (18) Wisconsin look for the Badgers to mix it up a bit an have a little bit of a passing game.  […]
