    I got a big fat PUSH on the Rutgers game at +17.

    Should we be so sure after that UL and OSU prediction?

    I think so, I'm a sucker and would take that one. Everyone should now bet on VU.

    Hey, everybody has a bad night in betting from time-to-time. Luckily, I laid my big bet on the Colts that night, so I ended up breaking even.

    Oh yeah, one lesson I learned - I don't care if the Dallas Cowboys are playing the Miami Hurricanes, I will never bet an over on a 40+ point game. There are just too many things that can happen.

    I think USF has a chance to make a game of it, but I agree that Auburn will hold serve at home...

    I noticed something about that, why didn't Navy go for two instead of kicking PAT. They were trailing by 24, score a TD, wouldn't trying to cut it 2 scores make more sense. Probably would not have mattered anyway, but just something people notice when they know the spread.

    I was actually at the Danville/Boyle Co. game and didn't get to watch what happened. I'll take a push because I had a larger than normal bet on Rutgers, but a win would have been very nice.

    I am so sick of the Big East. All I've heard and read this week is "jump on the Big East's big three!" and "lay it all on the line with the Big East this week!!!"

    Well, I bet on all 3 games, and I ended up with two losses and one push. I'll not be betting on the Big East anymore.

    I've rebounded!

    The only loss I'm looking at right now is Michigan. All of my others picks are looking good (UAB, Kentucky, Alabama, Miami (OH), Duke, Akron, Ball State, and Buffalo). Looking like a great day on the Wireman Sportsbook!

    I can't believe that I was able to get UAB AND 38 1/2 points! What were the linesmakers thinking?
