Squeaker on that Boise St game....you don't get that one today could have been a very bad day, though you still could get Tulsa too to go even for the day and up for the week.

Do you bet thru a site? I have an account at 5dimes but I don't like the site much....I'd prefer a better one.

Today is a day I remember why I enjoy college football so much.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

And I say that having mostly just caught scores for the mid day games, was out for a long run and heard BYU/Wiscy.

Not a good week. Losses weren’t even close. 2-3 on the week. Could have been worse. Don’t bet through a site. I know a guy...

Not a good week, but I've gambled enough to know you avoided disaster with those two wins that came by a total of like 3.5 points or something.

In college I decided to bet 5 games a week and one week lost all 5 (early in my gambling life) and tried a big bet to win it all back and lost. I've had hard earned lessons in the sports gambling world and stock market from early mistakes but do well with both now....though still tentative with either.

Throughout my life I haven’t been the most dedicated watcher of football but I’ve started to become more of a fan recently. And I’ve gotta say even after watching my Browns unfortunately tie the Steelers last Sunday and then my school Vandy lose in a heartbreaker to Notre Dame today, I think I’m a starting to find football more exciting than basketball. Every game just feels like so much more of an event and the fans get way more into it. Every play is more meaningful. Every season and game is more unpredictable. The NBA has just become so easy especially with the rise of analytics and the dominance of GS to see how everything will play out.

Yes I and limit to 5 a week. I go less if I don't like stuff. Some of my buddies will be 15-20 games a day. You're going to get killed on juice that way.
