Smaller sample size in the playoffs every night makes it more difficult for me. The playoffs are like playing roulette.

I admit being completely dumbfounded over the Islanders ownership at this point. Last year, the team rode a top 5 offense into playoff position despite being one of the worst defensive teams in the league. Come trade deadline they sit pat and do nothing to address the porous defense or goaltending. The team then, not shockingly at all, falls out of playoff position. John Tavares then bolts in free agency and I didn’t blame him whatsoever after the lack of any urgency at the deadline. This year they have one of the best defensive teams in the league really shouldering he load, getting great goaltending what that defense falters BUT now have the dead last ranked CorsiFor team in the league meaning they create the fewest chances of 31 teams. Would ownership learn from last year and do something to bolster the struggling portion of their team as they again sit in playoff position or again stand pat? They did nothing and I am absolutely amazed. Their CorsiAgainst rating has been slowly climbing since the New Year and once their bloated team shooting percentage begins to decline, as it will, because the talent level isn’t high enough to sustain it, this team will, imo, begin to free fall again. Why does this teams ownership continually fall asleep at the deadline?

 

Same thing was said about Vegas last year.

Am I blind or are there no more averages from teams past ten games available? I know it takes 30 seconds to calculate the averages but it was nice for comparisons. Also, previous matches are not updating. For instance, it has the Sabres last playing the Blackhawks. Other than that it's fine.

The book consultation form should include a field to input dates to select an appointment date and time. There are plugins available for that.

I think they can hang in there in this game and any game with good enough D line play. Murray is about as good as they come. Formula to beat Bama is typically outstanding QB play and/or a dual threat QB. Bama speed on the edge this year is not as good as the previous two years. I hope they are ready for a long night.This is about as exciting of a game as they get. Two huge historic programs, 2 heisman front-runners going toe to toe, offense offense offense. My problem with your post is the cupcake schedule. Cannot stress how tired I am hearing this every year. We schedule 3 "cupcakes" every year as opposed to most other teams 1 or 2 and automatically deemed cupcake schedule. Could we compare apples to apples on this years schedule?OU - FAU and ArmyBama - Arky State, ULL, CitadelHow about the rest of the schedule?Quality games in my eyesOU - Iowa ST, Texas, WVU, and then Texas againBama - Texas AM, Mizzou, Miss St, and finally GeorgiaI just want you to elaborate more on our cupcake schedule compared to the high and mighty Oklahoma schedule this year.
I get it..Everyone gets upset when mentioning of Alabama’s Laughable Schedule..The CHAMPS hardest game this year was Georgia...do me a favor just Google 2018 easiest Schedule in Sec ..bet u will see #ROLL TIDE ...this is not a debate I really wanna discuss this will be a never ending debate...My opinion Bama will Get Exposed....They enjoyed running up the score all year on Scrubs..Well get Ready...HIGH POWERED ATTACK..Coming real soon ..GOOD LUCK!!
  here we go with the schedule crap again. Absolutely hated for being so good. But what really bothers me is that these games are scheduled years in advance. Which in reality is not the universities fault at all. I mean not to sound like we are unstoppable, but NO ONE can play with Bama except for Georgia. Georgia is the second best team in the world and they have proven that back to back years. I am a die hard bama fan and whether you guys think that alters my decision making, i would bet anything that is in my name that BAMA does not lose this matchup. kyler murray is no god and its going to show as soon as this game starts. no kyler murray will not be shut out but i guarantee our defense gets him out of his comfort zone for most of this game. Kyler has not seen a Bama D this stout.   BOL & ROLL DAMN TIDE!
  You say no one can hang with bama? Mississippi STATE hung with bama. MISSISSIPPI STATE. And they have no offense. Bama finally plays a complete team and only wins because Saban was forced to put Jalen in. Alabama hasn't faced an offense remotely close to OU's this year so that will be fun to watch. I suspect bama will squeak by the Sooners. But I don't think they will be so lucky against ND.

 

And you conveniently ignore the fact that Oklahoma was a bounce or play away from losing to several teams.

Would not be surprised if bama was run heavy in this game as well to try to take the air out of the ball and limit the number of times OU gets the ball. Regardless, I think the OU TT is a strong play.

And you are under the impression Oklahoma can find a defense like Georgia's to force Bama to play that poorly again?

What were they doing at the bar when you have a game on sunday?

 

You must be new. Professional athletes party the night before games all the time. I came across Pedro Martinez in 2005 at around 3AM at a bar and he had a 1pm start. Nearly pitched a no-hitter.

I remember my first time betting on football, too. I've seen this done several times, especially in college during blowouts.

He hasn't posted since losing on the Pats in the Super Bowl. I've been wondering about Target_9 too, who just stopped posting three years ago after putting baseball picks up. Wonder if something happened.

If they have a big lead, yeah. Belichick isn't ignoring the 31st ranked pass defense in the league and just pounding the ball every down.

No, Cal doesn't have the same defense it had years ago. They are really physical. Looks about right.

The "long hair guy" is only the best QB prospect in years and likely a number 1 pick in the draft moron. an_violin
