I dont think much of this game.  I have a small opinion but it will be a regular bet for me (**).

Still. . .  it's been a great thread.  Sometimes I'm with you, sometimes I'm not, but I surely like to hear the opinions and write-ups.
 
At least you will be on a side in this one.  After all this, I'd have hated to see you pass on it.
 
GL to you the rest of the way

By my count, ACC is 2-1 (FSU by 17, MD by 17) so far in bowls and SEC is 2-1.
 


SEC Victories
South Carolina        over Houston
Kentucky                over Clemson

Loss would be Alabama

Thats what I said.  He said that the ACC has looked soft in bowl games and the SEC has looked "quite good".  I was pointing out that they had the same records 2-1.  Still confused.

I also believe that Michigan believes that they are still in the National Championship race, even if it is just for the AP vote.  I also think that this has to be a letdown for USC after 2 years of playing at the top and losing their last game to UCLA.

 

Michigan 28-17

 

 
Damn it... there goes my parlay. I was hoping you were on USC. Good Luck.

Good thread. It will get a lot of hits and a lot of responses.

Joe Public   I posted this way back, as you can see, but I never expected this many.

That VT game took a lot out of me.  Im the kind of person that could go 10-1 and only remember the loss.  I couldnt sleep last night.

I think the big mistake of the game was when VT got the ball back at their own 40 with 1.45 left in the 1st half, 1 timeout up 21-3 and sat on the ball and ran out the clock. 

I dont care how much you are up by you have to try and score there.  If they would have gone 3 and out Georgia would have not tried to score so there was no downside. 

You never have too many points, as illustrated last night.

GL all, Im happy to have a day off to prepare for tomorrow.

I hear you Van, some of these coaching decisions leave me shaking my head in disbelief. I had Navy for the game and them doubled down on them for +5 in the 2nd half. Running an option when all you have to do is burn the clock?

Great work. I appreciate the fact that you grade the plays w/ 1 star through 4. I play accordingly and am making a profit by purely tailing. That way I can rake in NCAAF cash and focus on NBA capping.

I got burned, too.
Worse meltdown I've seen by a 'quality ' team that I can recall.
Agree, that 2nd Quarter play calling was dubious, to put it politely.
Still, you have a nice run going in the bowl season and a lot of folk are happily following.
I'm not always on the same side , but mostly.
GL the rest of the way.
BTW- Agree with you on the Championship game.  I have a small opinion but it will be a regular bet for me (**).

This always seems to happen when you play not to lose. But considering how shitty their QB is I cant say as I blame them. They do have a very good defense and thedefense should be the ones taken more of the blame.
