I will write you back tonight.
 
 
Thanks for tracking it down.  I look forward to your insight.
 
I haven't spent much time with college football lately so I'll be tailing you on many of these including BYU tonight.  I hope you have a great bowl season.

on byu -3 as well vanzack

i really have a thing for finding "sunday" quarterbacks in bowl games and going with them

Beck has been captain of a nice money train this year. Good matchup for him as he shredded a much better TCU defense a few months back.

Bingo Koaj.
 
Beck is really good.  Im concerned about the BYU secondary but everything else points to them.  Oregons punting is terrible and their FG kicker sucks too - they rarely even try a FG unless they are at the 20 or in.
 
Small things but they all add up to BYU.

Thank you BYU.
 
I will take 30 more boring bowl games after those first 2.   Love those no brainers.

Vanman is 2-0....hence starting me off at 2-0.
Red or White? And keep it under 70 dollars.

Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz
 
27 bucks a bottle.  I have 8 cases sitting here.  The best wine there is at almost any price.

No - i like mostly Shiraz (syrah) and Zinfindel.  Sometimes a Cab / Shiraz mix.
 
Mollydooker shiraz is my wine of choice for the last year.  It is awesome.  And a screwtop to boot!  I serve it all the time and mostly to myself.

The Mollydooker Carnival of Love 2005 got a 99 from Robert Parker!
 
He said it was as close to perfect wine as he has ever drank.
 
I had some at a dinner once but it is hard to find, and 125 bucks a bottle.  But if you want to indulge, I highly recommend.

You can get the boxer.  You cant get carnival of love.
 
You might need to ask your local wine shop to try and order it but you can get it.  I bought 10 cases 4 months ago and Im down to 8.  Go get a bottle or two, and if you ever run across carnival of love you should buy that one too.
