Back to the money...
Vinnie Verno picks games and Vinnie Verno wins. 3-2 this week (and the Teams in Turmoil parlay also hit) and the overall record now stands at 20-7 (74%) so far this season. The seven we lost were clearly fixed.
For the show this week... I know that Grizzlies media day is Monday of this week, and I know that Rick Pitino is scheduled for the show this week, and I can't remember what else we have going on.
If you missed the TV bit (MIC CHECK) this week, here it is...
Friday, September 26, 2008
Ole Miss +22 over Florida (you can make a living betting on 20pt dogs in the SEC year in and year out, and we do. Too many points)
Troy +17 over Oklahoma St. (Troy is a ATS team, in fact 13-3 in last 16 ATS. We love them. Not to mention they beat this team by more than 2tds last year)
San Diego St -11 over Idaho (Idaho is the worst team in the world. A total abomination. They have played 3 d1 opponents and lost a combined 163-35. )
Texas -27.5 over Arkansas (This is another one of the worst teams in the world. I thought this line should have been 50 or more. This is a massacre waiting to happen. Hide the women and children)
Colorado +6 over Florida St. (I don't think FSU should be a 6 pt favorite over anyone. I love Hawkins and I love that their RB is Rod Stewart. Wake up Maggie, Colorado.....strrrrr.....)
goofy parlay is...
Teams in Turmoil Two Team NFL Parlay of the Year!
Buffalo -8 over the Rams
San Diego -7.5 over Raiders

Friday, September 19, 2008
Alabama -9 over Arkansas (Arkansas is one of the worst teams in D1, they prove it this weekend)
Troy +21.5 over Ohio St (love this game, love this game. Troy could shock em. We will absolutely take more than 3 tds though)
Air Force +9.5 over Utah (I don't care if Utah is ranked, this game is ALWAYS close. Air Force 9-1 ATS in last 10, we will gladly take the 9.5)
Wake Forest +4 over Florida St. (I will believe it when I see it from the Noles, until then I will take the better football team as a road dog)
MTSU +6 over Arkansas St (I could not believe this line. MTSU pounds these guys every year. I like that Blue Raiders team because they covered for us last week. Take MTSU. Easy pickins)
The NFL goofy parlay is the Chalk Parlay of the Year!
New England -12
Bert Sugars picks (to cover)-- Fresno, Rutgers, Utah, Purdue, LSU

Computer salesman became turnaround whiz. Used $150,000 profit from selling home and $10 million in bank loans to acquire Conco, maker of sewer and drain equipment. Expanded holdings; bought several near-bankrupt Rust Belt manufacturers. Today Heico operates 40 companies. Earnings generated through steel, construction, equipment. Founded private equity firm Stony Land Partners 2007; returned investors' money 2008 after credit crunch hit. Owns pro basketball's Memphis Grizzlies despite several efforts to sell team.
The team I care about, the team some of you care about, is a throw away line at the end of the profile. That seems about right.

#18 Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe talked about what he thought about Ole Miss, the extremely rare philosophy they used when building Wake, the Florida St. game coming up, etc.
College football analyst Terry Bowden talked about the season so far, whether coaches know what the point spread is in a game, why the spread offense is trending down, if Matthew Stafford is elite, the game he lost because he was trying not to "show to much" because of who his opponent was the next week (great story), etc.
I thought all three of them were really interesting today. If you missed any of them, they are loaded in the player...

Philanthropy Record is (8-2, 80%) this year
UAB +30 over Tennessee (if UAB can get me one TD, Tenn has to get me by more than 5tds. no way)
MTSU +17 over Kentucky (I could not believe this. Kentucky has a totally garbage offense. This is insulting)
Iowa St +13.5 over Iowa (again, totally insulting. Iowa St. always covers in this game, and now it is almost a 2td, give me a break)
N Mex St. +25 over Nebraska (I am ridin with my boy Hal Mumme and Joe Lee Dunn on this one. Nebraska struggled with San Jose till the end, 25 is too many)
Western Michigan -8 over Idaho (Idaho is the worst team in D1, and injured. This line should have been 20, we get it at 8)
The goofy NFL Parlay is the Go To the Bank Week 2 Parlay of the Year!
G- Giants -9 over Rams
T- Titans +1 over Bengals
B- Buffalo +5.5 over Jags

Cal, Michigan, Virginia, Vandy, Georgia

Brown will start in the Auburn game on Saturday night for the Bullies and I cannot wait. Why? Because Karlin Brown is my size. Wait until you see him. He is 5'8" 195lbs. It seems impossible. I looked up his videos on Rivals just to see if this is for real. This dude is starting at middle linebacker in the SEC against Auburn. I cannot remember the last time I anticipated watching a player more. Karlin Brown, do your thing, mangle and destroy.
I asked Sylvester Croom about Karlin Brown, his team losing to La. Tech, minority coach hires, etc. I have loaded the audio if you missed it.
I also loaded the audio of Tenn. Def. Coor. John Chavis joining us on the show.
Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom

The Chris Wallace weekly segment is loaded in three parts. We busted his chops about a possible Zach Randolph deal, etc. Linda Cohn from ESPN joined us on the show to talk about her new incredibly revealing book about her life. Cohn is loaded in the player also.

Southern Miss +17.5 over Auburn (too many points for a non-crappy team to get)
