    Tennessee Martin +37 (@ Bearcats)
    Over 58 Tennessee/Appalachian State

    Probably go 0-3 to start the season, but eh just testing the waters. Saturday has a lot of good value on ML parlays

    +37 Tennessee Martin wil easily cover, that was an easy play honestly.

    Vols though did not show up like i thought they would. Still a quarter and some left but eh, ill tag that as a loss

    Kind of surprised Tennessee looked so flat. I know any given day stuff, but they should have 2x the talent that App State has.

    That (3rd?) Game for UM @ APP STate just got interesting. I am really intrigued to see if APP State is really good or UT just had a let down.

    I LOVE that you have UF in your playoff team. Not so sure it will happen, we have a few holes. I'm pretty sure Bama won't make it this year. They are loaded, but replacing a few starters will end up biting them in a game or two... There should be one SEC team, I'm guessing LSU. I like the OSU and Clemson, the 4th team is where I'm not sure. I think it will be some team like Oklahoma. Just a total guess.

    I was debating between putting Florida or Florida State... in the end I think Florida State's hype will die down, they would need Deondre Francois to play like Jameis Winston for me to believe in them... Florida has a lot of players on both sides that I like. And I think McElwain has Del Rio ready..


    Tennessee coming out flat is like groundhog's day.. I thought they would definitely score more points, and I thought their defense would have created some of those points.. but it's the Volunteers, a whole lot of nada as usual...

    They will quickly fade into another sub 500 season..

    Baylor is still Baylor even without Briles..

    Michigan State, yeeesh... They won but looked pretty average against Furman. Dont expect them to do much this season.

    Lost the parlay on the stupidest fumble you can imagine on the goal line... And it was clearly recovered by NW but the refs didnt think so

    Rosen does not look as good as last... They slowed the game down a lot for him to prep him for the NFL and that doesnt play to his strengths. Plus missing a ton of open plays downfield isnt helping

    Well Bama is probably going to win it all again lol. A&M just beat UCLA so they aren't all losing. Wisconsin is tough out in Week 1 on the road.

    Jim Harbaugh is the f'n man. The speed on this team is unreal.

    Michigan vs. Ohio State is gonna be a good one this year.

    GO BLUE!

    Sounds about as good as every other conference.

    Not saying they are bad by any means, but this myth of the conference as a whole being dominant is 3 years removed.

    I hope you enjoyed the past 10 years of conference dominance.

    Because it is over.

    Thank goodness we didn't settle for Les Miles.

    I'm annoyed with the Gators tonight, I still think we'll win but some really bad clock management to start the game and then taking the FG off the board to go for it on 4th-1

    I have Bama ML. I hope they don't screw me.

    I'm not one to overreact but I'll take this Buckeye team on a neutral field vs Bama any day.

    I had no action other than being a fan but it was clearly one sided.

    You are confusing being top heavy with being a dominant conference.

    Bama is incredible yearly..and normally another team or two steps up as well. Again it can be argued they are as top heavy as anyone thanks to Bama. But beyond that they are just another power 5.

    Clemson up 6 and they don't kick a fg. Line was anywhere from 7 to 9.5.

    I almost took Clemson at 8. Sure glad I didn't. Was hoping Auburn got the hailmary.

    I teased that game to Clemson -2 in a few tickets that came in...if i would've bet the -8? Id puke.

    I dont believe sports are rigged, but that game will raise many eyebrows.

    lol byroan... I actually went 1-1 on the Clemson game... took -5 first half and -3.5 second half.. Watson had a very average game.... throwing up garbage a lot.. and the first half barely covered with a field goal that I thought would miss ... lol

    Took the Alabama/USC over.. barely covered... and also took Arizona State -27, which I woke up to that it covered.

    I'm looking at the Notre Dame game tonight, and I like the over... I think Notre Dame can definitely cover -4... Shane Buechele is being talked as if he's the next Vince Young but Longhorn fans always hype their guy... he's a read option quarterback for the most part, has some nice tools but still unproven..

    I like how Charlie Strong has FINALLY changed his playbook completely to compete with Texas rivals A&M, Baylor, TCU and Texas Tech..

    I kept saying all of last year, if charlie continues to be stubborn with the pro style offense he used in Louisville, he will not beat the other Top schools in Texas in recruiting. Kids will go to where they think their talent will be most utilized.
