Whats your reasoning behind the large play on CAL? BOL as always kind sir!!
Whats up Buddy...........

Here is a little gamblers secret. Besides the Nevada game this year, throw that out. California is one of the best Home teams in the country...always have been always will be. ASU will not come out and play in a early game like that.

CAL 38   ASU  20

that game is hard to gauge.... you guys have a good defense. But can you keep up on the scoreboard? If you were at home I think you win... on the road??? Things can change  It really is a toss up

not buying it.... That game had or should I say that situation really raises some flags

Any upset alerts among these? North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, UCLA, Nevada, UL Monroe, Florida State. What would be your top 3 ML plays among these?

Always appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

You were dead on about this game, although a lot of the discussion was about whether Clemson could move the ball against FSUs D--which is most certainly did.  There wasn't much talk about FSUs running game v. Clemson's run D which proved to be the difference.  It has been more than a decade since FSU could run the ball.  I do agree that Clemson is on the right trajectory.  Maybe we can trade titles for a while.

While acknowledging that Bama is number one, the game I'd rather see for the crown would be Oregon-FSU.  I'd give the edge to the ducks based on coaching experience.

Sorry bro....your wrong. 29-25 is his record. Mich +7 vs ND this past week was a PUSH not a loss. That was a 2 1/2 unit play. Based on 10% juice you should ADD 2 3/4 units to your calculations. and you'd still be wrong. Good grief.

+7.35 units is the total.

Great Read w "10 Things we learned" Invaluable

SEC still the Best conference even though they have some mutts. BIG 12 is very similar, 2 diffferent tiers too. PAC 12 Other than ORE and Stan, maybe SC, nobody else overwhelming in that group Totally agree about Little 10

ND on the rise again.

 Gary Patterson is gonna have his Horny frogs ready to be live puppies entering conference play Play against SMU , they really suck. Word is June Jones wants to move

Boom- as always great read and great picks this week! Went to the game and was an awesome game to be at. Clemson's offense is just so fun to watch. I was so excited to see Sammy Watkins live! Your boys put up a great game. If it had not been in Tallahassee the outcome I believe would of been different.  Also the Clemson fans were super respectful and a class act and I congratulated them on a good game. just by them being that way and being a huge fan of college football and venues I look forward to going to fsu @ clemson next year. Thanks again for all your hard work. Love the fsu play of course being a homer but there will be more fsu fans than sfu, revenge factor, and bj Daniels will be running for his life.

good luck as always boom, love the va tech play already on it

fwiw, penn state is 4-0 on first half wagers this year.  one thing from your top 10 i would say i have noticed specifically.  should be interesting this week as o'brien hates illini coach for being only big 10 guy on campus to recruit and get one of his players the day after sanctions.  he will do all he can to run up a score if possible.  would not talk to him at big 10 media day.  i just hope they win.

clemson is tempting, but laying them on the road got me fried a couple times last year sans va tech game.  surprised you dont have a bet on it.

best of luck again, keep up the good stuff.  do your thing.

nice week last week boom.  our tigers just got whipped on the line on both sides of the ball.  although it should be a nice 10-3,11-2 type year...heading in the right direction, imo.

Good stuff Boom...always great reading your write ups.  Now that we have a week off, we should be able to handle KU and then play a pretty good ISU team.  Go Cats!

Letsbeatdahouse - no upsets... S.C better be careful. road games  FSU is just to strong.

skipster - if you guys can " stay the course "... I think your going undefeated...

Friendly - I do this because I enjoy it... Yes I would love to do something for the college football world as a profession. if you got any pull at ESPN....give me a shout

Crusher -

sampsonite - I absolutely believe that if the game was played in Death valley Clemson would have won the game...playing on the road is very difficult. I dont care where it is. Ask LSU

FSUtom - you guys were the better team. I know you may not like this but, If the game were in Death Valley I think there is no doubt we win....and if the game were at a neutral field, we win. But the it wasn't, so you guys get full credit. BOL the rest of the year

thisguy - watchout playing Clemson this week.... they never play good up there...coming off a huge emotional loss.... Clemson prolly wins, but just barely

Hookem - CAL

Trey -

orange -

packers - chill man...thisguyiswise is good guy....

wildcats - SNYDER

Bolts -

Cover - Sup man
