2016 Browns draft reaction.

Let’s bang out reaction to this year’s draft and put it in the time capsule. (I’m just going post day one and two now; will update for day three later.)  (I don’t know why the emoticons flash on iOS devices.  Sorry about that.) The trade-backs. Yeah, fine whatever.  I was indifferent whether we stayed or traded back.  I wasn’t a...

Laughable folly of Berea elitism.

So you say it’s your dream to work for your hometown Cleveland Browns?  How can you too get into that Haslam braintrust, you ask.  What path of hard work and real life accomplishment might earn you consideration to join the august team of data scientists whose performance to date is… renowned. Welp, the good news is that you don’t have to have...

End of the Scheiner/Banner era.

Okay.  You’re a trust fund billionaire and daddy played for a national championship football team.  You love football but you don’t live it day-to-day like you do the truck stop/convenience store/bankruptcy dumpster-diving acquisition game.  No.  Your mastery of the highly-nuanced volume based pricing/rebate business model only goes so far and may or may not translate to successful ownership of your new...

Reboot’s 2015 reboot.

Old friend Dave Kolonich gave me a piece to post last week and here it is.  Sorry for the delay! It’s been a while since I last checked in with Mike. Understandably, this 2015 Browns’ season has sucked the life out of me and/or I emotionally checked out around the time Josh McCown went for a helicopter ride back in...

Cheddar Playoffs week two.

More domination from FlyHighCharlieFrye last week as he stayed on top with a 4-1 ATS pick rate.  That’s 59% ATS for the season, good; 14-4-1 (76%) on essays, great; and 11-1-1 on essays since October — INSANE. Below are this week’s lines.  Email to Frowns and me by 3:35PM Saturday.

Cheddar Playoffs, week one. 8

Wk 18 — no all play!

No all play this week.  Lines for other games up tomorrow. Actually let’s lock in tomorrow’s games too. “Betting closed” lines subject to review.  In other words, don’t use that line until confirmed here.  Also for Wednesday games, use the ‘color’ images posted above.   Loading…

Wk 17, All play Skins +3 at Eagles –> SATURDAY

Early post for the early bowl games.  Use these lines for the four bowls today and tomorrow.  I am horrified and disgusted that GoDaddy is no longer in it’s customary January 2nd position. Today Famous Idaho: Akron +7.5 USU Boca:  Toledo +2.5 Temple Wednesday Poinsettia:  Boise -8.5 NIU GoDaddy:  Ga Southern +7 BGSU   FHCF has clinched a playoff slot...
